Kurz Instruments is known for designing and manufacturing thermal mass flow transmitters for industrial gas flow measurement. Our engineers, product development specialists, and management have developed flow-metering products capable of operating in the harshest of environments. For 40 years, our team has successfully provided solutions to our customers’ most demanding and difficult applications. Kurz products are used in a range of industrial applications, including combustion air, aeration air flow, digester gas, nuclear power plants, flare stack monitoring, and compressed air, among others. Kurz Instruments is headquartered is in Monterey, California.
During the 1960s, Dr. Jerome Kurz revolutionised air-flow measurement by developing a series of durable, compact, and highly-accurate thermal anemometer sensors that measured gas flow electronically. This resulted in the establishment of Kurz Instruments in 1976. Dr. Kurz launched the company with the intent of integrating his engineering skills with technology to create products that help the environment, and solve some of the most extreme measurement and monitoring challenges facing industries.
The company grew from making portable instrumentation to more rugged industrial devices used in some of the harshest air and gas flow environments. The heart of the company’s products are its rugged, solid-state velocity sensors based on the cooling effect of a moving gas over a heated sensor element. Kurz is the recognised leader in thermal convection mass flow meters.
