Panametrics has been a pioneer in the sensor technology industry for more than 50 years. With an innovative culture, we continue to develop solutions for moisture, oxygen, liquid flow, and gas flow measurement. Our proven technologies are widely known across many industries including oil & gas. Some of our other technology breakthroughs include: 

  • Industry standard for moisture analyzers 
  • Standard for mass flow measurement in flare applications 
  • First all-welded metal, ultrasonic transducer for gas flow applications 
  • First ultrasonic meter in natural gas
