Fluenta, a global leader in ultrasonic measurement and management technology, today announces the appointment of Stephen Fox as European Sales Director. Fox will lead the European sales operation to extend Fluenta into the chemicals market.
Before joining Fluenta, Fox has enjoyed a varied career with companies including Tyco, Voith and Hunt Thermal Technologies. Fox is experienced in process engineering, particularly the management of full engineering automation and he will use this experience to support Fluenta’s expansion beyond Oil & Gas into the chemical sector.
Fox comments: “With an increasing focus on environmental issues, alongside growing concerns around quality there has never been a greater emphasis in the chemical market on the monitoring and measurement of flaring for rogue gases and particulates. As the proven leader in flare gas measurement and monitoring, Fluenta is uniquely placed to provide a robust and viable solution to the chemical market.”
As more data can be stored and analysed in near real time, chemicals companies are looking for granular information from sites that can help deliver insight into improved production and reduced cost. Fluenta’s range of ultrasonic Flare Gas Monitors are the most accurate on the market and, with the launch of the new Fluenta 160X monitor earlier in 2016 the company has a product with the temperature range to effectively service the chemicals market.
“Big data is being applied by large chemicals companies to drive increased insight, not only into wastage but also to drive efficiencies in production and quality management,” continued Fox. “The need for continuous and accurate measurement has therefore never been more relevant.”
Sigurd Aase, CEO of Fluenta, comments: “Fluenta’s product portfolio is now highly suited to measurement and monitoring within the chemicals industry and Stephen will play an important role in helping us exploit this new market. His experience, not only in Europe but also in Asia and North Africa, will help Fluenta globalise its chemicals market offering.”
