Quick history of Flow at GE
2002: Panametrics becomes part of GE
2002: Launched Transit Time clamp-on gas
2003: Launched Tag Correlation clamp-on gas
2004: Focused on simplification and quality improvements
2005: Launched intrinsically safe, loop powered clamp-on meter. Continue work on
simplification and quality.
2006: Started custody transfer for liquid program - major design initiative.
2007-2008: Vortex and Coriolis products added to flow portfolio. Launched loop
powered, wetted process meter.
2009: Launched Sentinel LCT for allocation and leak detection. Started developing
platform for SIL applications to replace existing line of xx868 meters.
