Across industries, companies are beginning to see more pressure to reduce emissions. Regulations regarding the monitoring or reduction of emissions are growing in intensity. This pressure goes across boundaries: political and industrial.
“Leading governments at every level around the globe have set standards and made investments in promoting GHG reductions in economic jurisdictions large and small.” – Michael Northrup.
The EU has committed to the goal of reducing emissions by 20% by 2020. Even Japan’s green IT project plans to drop 130 million tons of CO2 by 2025. In the U.S., President Obama signed an Executive Order on Federal Sustainability that committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 28% by 2020.
Many industries around the world are affected by these regulations and must respond by improving their processes and technologies, increasing efficiency, and installing monitoring equipment to measure the flow of emissions. International companies, like those operating in the Oil and Gas Industry, are often affected by more than one nation’s regulations regarding the reduction or monitoring of emissions. The International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association and the American Petroleum Institute have recently joined forces to assist such companies in the process of trying to comply with all of these various regulations by creating a guide to institute reduction projects.
Fox Thermal Instruments, Inc has also developed an Environmental Monitoring Guide to address several industry monitoring activities beyond the Oil & Natural Gas industry like Landfills, Coal Mines, Biogas and many others.

Fox Thermal Instruments strives to design and manufacture the most innovative and reliable thermal mass flow meter products to our customers. All Fox meters measure mass flow rate and are available in insertion and inline models. Fox models FT1, FT2A and FT3 are mass flow meters and temperature transmitters providing isolated 4-20mA and pulse output for flow rate, and a 4-20mA pulse output for process gas temperature or a second flow rate output.
Fox flow meters are often calibrated to measure air flow. Please review the product features for Models FT1, FT2A and FT3 for further information about our thermal mass flow meter products.
