Overview

KROHNE metering systems are used throughout the entire energy value chain. Next to traditional oil & gas applications, KROHNE is one of the leading suppliers of metering solutions for renewable energy applications. KROHNE instrumentation can therefore be found in, Hydrogen and CCS project as well as in biogas, biomethane and biofuels.

KROHNE is a one stop shop that takes full project responsibility for their metering systems, from initial design to periodical maintenance on site. Where available KROHNE instrumentation is used, such as in-house manufactured Coriolis and ultrasonic flowmeters. Where KROHNE instrumentation is not available, or users are standardised on another brand, KROHNE uses 3rd party products where KROHNE takes full responsibility. Instrument diagnostic features are used to guarantee maximum performance and lowest measurement uncertainty.

With instrumentation and custody transfer metering systems designed from the same source, customers can rely on seamless integration of all components. KROHNE is established in the metering industry since 1921 and has a local presence in over 100 countries to provide on-going support.

Product features and options depend on device configuration: Contact us to make sure that your preferred functionality can be combined in one device.
