my country is a big industrial country and a big energy consuming country. In recent years, with the rapid development of my country's industry, especially industrial automation has become more and more obvious, the demand for energy in my country's industrial development is also increasing.
In order to ensure that energy can supply industrial development in a timely manner, my country has stepped up energy extraction. As one of the indispensable equipment in industrial energy measurement and excavation work, the flow meter has also increased its market demand, and has grown into a new economic growth point in the modern industrial economy.
my country's energy consumption picks up, driving demand for flowmeters to increase
According to information released by the National Energy Administration, in the first half of 2017, my country's oil consumption increased steadily, and natural gas consumption increased substantially. my country's oil consumption is about 300 million tons, a year-on-year increase of about 5%; natural gas consumption is about 100 billion cubic meters, an increase of about 11%. In addition, the proportion of clean energy consumption in my country increased in the first half of 2017, and the proportion of natural gas and non-fossil energy consumption totaled 20%, a significant increase from the end of last year.
Therefore, in order to ensure that energy can be supplied to industrial development in a timely manner, my country has increased its energy extraction. As one of the indispensable equipment in industrial energy measurement and excavation work, the flow meter has also increased its market demand, and has grown into a new economic growth point in the modern industrial economy.
So, what is a flow meter? The so-called flow meter is a kind of instrument, mainly used to measure the flow of fluid in pipes or channels, and it is often seen in petrochemical and natural gas industries. At the same time, in order to adapt to industrial development, it has gradually been developed into various types.
Domestic flowmeter companies need to innovate to seize economic growth
The increasing demand for domestic flowmeters is a good time for my country's flowmeter companies to increase their economic strength and market competitiveness. However, due to the late start of research on flowmeter technology in my country, compared with well-known foreign flowmeter brands, the competitiveness of domestic flowmeter companies is relatively weak.
The data shows that from January to September 2016, my country imported more than 10 million flowmeters from more than 30 foreign countries, with an import volume of more than 30 million US dollars, of which the largest number was imported from Germany. It can be seen that part of my country's flowmeter market is occupied by foreign flowmeter companies.
Technology is the first productive force, and quality is fundamental. If my country's flowmeter enterprises want to enjoy the right to speak in the flowmeter market, they must adhere to the concept of 'quality, new win', strictly control quality, and increase innovation.
In July 2017, my country developed a new type of small-flow supercritical carbon dioxide underground vortex flowmeter; it broke through the original technology of ultrasonic flowmeter and electromagnetic flowmeter to achieve a new height of flowmeter measurement.
