VPInstruments Celebrates 20 Years of Energy Management Solutions

VPInstruments this year celebrates 20 years of developing, manufacturing and supplying flow meters and energy management solutions for the compressed air industry.

VPINstruments 20 Years Logo

Throughout its history, VPInstruments has developed innovative products for easy insight into energy flows of compressed air and technical gasses. Its products made it possible to perform compressed air audits in an easy manner, and today its product portfolio comprises a complete energy management solution.

VPInstruments was founded in 1999, however, the flow sensor technology itself dates back to 1974 when Anton van Putten, father of company founder Pascal van Putten, pioneered the development of the MEMS flow sensor technology. The technology can still be found in many other flow sensors around the world.

Years of further development led to the founding of VPInstruments. The first steps caught the attention of the compressed air industry and together with a leading compressor manufacturer, the company developed the first insertion flow meter for compressed air audits, the VPFlowMate®. A few years later it released the VPFlowScope®; one flow meter measuring flow, pressure, and temperature simultaneously in one product. VPInstruments’ VPVision monitoring software was the first energy management software dedicated for compressed air systems. And with the more recent launch of the VPFlowScope M, its customers are ready for the IIOT revolution.

Today, the highly motivated team of VPInstruments is still developing new products and looks forward to many years to come.
