Flow Line's flow transmitter goes to Hawaii
Southern California Gas Co. (The Gas Company) is currently conducting a demonstration at its Energy Resource Center in Downey, California to showcase innovative technologies from the world's leading solar companies, which includes Sopogy's advanced SopoCool system. SopoCool is Sopogy's proprietary solar air conditioning packaged system. The system combines an absorption thermal chiller, Sopogy's MicroCSP solar collectors and Sopogy's electric controls necessary to operate the system automatically. The utility's demonstration is part of an overall effort to provide customers with energy solutions that will reduce cost, increase efficiencies, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
"We are excited about the potential of these advanced solar power systems to provide cost savings, substantial energy and lead to the creation of green jobs," said Hal Snyder, Vice President of Customer Solutions for The Gas Company. He further explained that, "This project will help commercialize these solar technologies and provide a renewable resource to our customers, which contributes to California's renewable energy goals."
According to Tal Ziv, Sopogy's Vice President of Operations, "The Flow Line Options meter was chosen for its ability to accurately measure flows at our target temperature." Flo-Corp's MFT flow transmitter is being used to measure the thermal fluid being processed by Sopogy's SopoCool system. "Accurate readings are critical to maximize system efficiency and thereby offset the use of fossil fuels," added Ziv. The new solar technology uses the sun's energy rather than the electric grid or natural gas to power air conditioning systems.
"Flow Line Options is proud to support Sopogy in this important effort," said Dave Grumney, President of Flow Line Options. "We have a family of green products that accurately measure level and flow that will lead us into a future of energy independence."
About Flow Line Options
Incorporated by the State of Ohio in 1988, Flow Line Options began as a small distribution company and has evolved into a leading manufacturer and national distributor of flow and level instrumentation. In 1999, Flow Line Options expanded to the Web to provide their services globally. Even with the company's rapid growth, Flow Line Options continues to maintain a small business attitude and commitment to its customers.
Sopogy specializes in MicroCSP solar technologies that bring the economics of large solar energy systems to the industrial, commercial and utility sectors in a smaller, robust and more cost effective package. Sopogy's MicroCSP technologies are being deployed around the world including in the United States, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Hawaii. The unique scalability and modularity of MicroCSP technologies make it ideal for distributed generation applications such as electricity, process heating, and solar air-conditioning. Sopogys goal is to create solar solutions that improve the quality of life and simplify the solar power business.
