FCI appoints Bopp & Reuther distributor in Germany
San Marcos, CA - March 28, 2007 - Fluid Components International announces today a new distribution partnership with Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik GmbH in Germany. This expanded sales and support capability will help FCI meet the growing demand for industrial process flow meters and level instruments from the new firm’s seven offices located across Germany.

FCI’s European Sales Manager, Mr. Koeken said, “Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik is one of the most respected and traditional flow experts in Germany. The firm offers a proprietary line of oval wheel meters, turbine meters, density and concentration meters, vortex meters and compact orifices for flow and volume metering. They excel in custody transfer applications. Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik also distributes instruments for energy metering of steam, liquids and gases.”

Mr. Koeken continued, “FCI’s Thermal Dispersion flow meter technologies complement the Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik range of products perfectly. Together, we can provide optimal solutions for a broad range of flow meter applications for Germany’s end-users, contractors and system integrators.” He also noted that FCI has a long tradition of serving its global customers and has recently developed a German language FCI web site to support its European customers.

“We are pleased to be representing Fluid Components International in Germany” said Mr. Cuny, President of Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik. “This distribution partnership enables us to offer our customers the FCI thermal dispersion flow meter solutions that are recognized worldwide for their precision accuracy and high repeatability in process plants, including those with harshest conditions,” Mr. Cuny added. Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik’s headquarters is located in Speyer near Heidelberg.

With over 40 years of flow instrumentation experience, FCI has earned its reputation as a worldwide leader in the design and production of flow and level instrumentation. The company’s highly reliable products find wide application in a variety of industries that include: oil and gas, refineries, petrochemical, chemical, electric power generation (nuclear and coal-fired), wastewater treatment facilities, food/beverage, pulp/paper and more.

Flow meters from FCI are available with either Coriolis or thermal dispersion technologies, which provide direct mass flow measurement for almost every fluid in line sizes from 0.25 to more than 99 inches [6 to 2500mm]. FCI’s advanced flow meters combine precision measurement with a rugged, industrial design for process mass flow measurements of air, gases and liquids, even caustic and corrosives, and in high humidity and high temperature environments. They are highly reliable, easy to install, require virtually no maintenance and are designed for long-life.

FCI flow and level switches feature an advanced no-moving parts thermal dispersion flow sensor that makes them ideal for a wide range of flow alarm and point-level process applications. Their unique design also allows them to measure flow or level along with fluid temperature from the same device. The company’s NuTec® flow switch is designed with a unique non-contacting flow element that completely separates the sensor from the process media, which makes it ideal in sanitary flow processes common to the food/beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

For more than 40 years, FCI has been a pioneer in the development of thermal dispersion sensors and more recently coriolis sensors for direct mass flow measurement in a variety of media. The company’s advanced technologies include mechanical design, advanced materials, metallurgy, electronics, bus communications and more.

Fluid Components International is a global company committed to meeting the needs of its customers through innovative solutions to the most challenging requirements for sensing, measuring and controlling the flow and level of air, gases and liquids.
