Gas consumption is permanently viewed in conjunction with profitability aspects – the more expensive the gas type, the more intensively gas consumption is scrutinised. When looking for savings potential, the ancillary costs, such as cylinder rental and transport costs, must not be ignored. However concrete consumption values are seldom available.

In the past, insulated glass companies used a cylinder scale. Gas consumption was approximately determined via the weight loss. This method has major disadvantages, because a statement can only be made concerning the average over a variety of IG units.

Now as an industry first, HELANTEC offers reliable gas consumption measurement for insulated gas companies. With the ISO-GAS-METER (IGM) the user is in a position to capture gas consumption per unit, as well as track the filling behaviour of the gas filling system and to present cumulative gas consumption.

It has been developed specially for the needs of insulated glass production and is suitable for all standard gases and mixtures. This capability offers essential economic advantages for the user:

  • a realistic basis for calculation
  • diagnostics and specific maintenance of the filling systems
  • monitoring of gas consumption

The insulated glass manufacturer can finally make statements concerning

  • gas loss or overfilling
  • the filling process of his system

The ISO-GAS-METER (IGM) measuring system is connected to a control and presentation unit. Operation is intuitive per touch screen and the measurement is executed automatically. All recorded data is documented per each filling procedure, without additional effort in an automated process. The data can be evaluated directly in Excel or with our presentation software.

If you would like to monitor the gas consumption of your gas filling press, consider our IGM/IPA process monitor, consisting of ISO-GAS-METER (IGM) and ISO-PRESS-ANALYSER (IPA).
