November 30, 2022

Calgary, Alberta (November 30, 2022) - Spartan Controls is pleased to announce it is now the exclusive distributor for Fox Thermal Instruments in Western Canada. As a manufacturer of thermal mass flow meters for domestic and global markets, Fox Thermal Gas Mass Flow Meters are used in light and heavy industrial plants, process heating facilities, up/mid/downstream oil & gas, and wastewater operations.

"We are excited to add Fox Thermal, a high-performance manufacturer, to our product portfolio," said Chris Wilkinson, Vice President Measurement Instrumentation, Spartan Controls. "Combining our respective strengths in gas flow measurement will provide customers a differentiated level of application support and after sales service for critical applications."

Fox Thermal meters can measure virtually any gas flow in a wide variety of applications. Today, almost any facility will have one or more combustion processes such as a boiler, process heater, or flare. Measurement of gases to these processes can be used to improve combustion efficiencies, utilities accounting, and regulator reporting.

"Fox Thermal couldn’t be more excited to formalize our partnership with Spartan Controls in Western Canada. Due to tightening environmental regulations; demand for accurate, easy to use, and versatile flowmeters is higher than ever before. Fox Thermal has the best solution, and Spartan has the right team to provide the best customer experience", said Daniel Huntley, Global Director of Sales, Fox Thermal.

Make downtime a thing of the past with this revolutionary technology. Fox Thermal brings the Digital Difference because they are the only thermal gas mass flow meter manufacturer with digital sensor technology. The DDC-Sensor™ is like no other flow sensor available on the market today and is interfaced directly to the meter's microprocessor for more speed and programmability.
