Joined GE in 2002Joined GE in 2008Quick history of Flow at GE2002: Panametrics becomes part of GE2002: Launched Transit Time clamp-on gas2003: Launched Tag Correlation clamp-on gas2004: Focused on simplification and quality improvements2005: Launched intrinsically safe, loop powered clamp-on meter. Continue work on simplification and quality.2006: Started custody transfer for liquid program - major design initiative.2007-2008: Vortex and Coriolis products added to flow portfolio. Launched loop powered, wetted process meter.2009: Launched Sentinel LCT for allocation and leak detection. Started developing platform for SIL applications to replace existing line of xx868 meters.2010: Certified Sentinel LCT for OIML. Added high velocity capability to flare meters2012: Released low flow flare capability and XGF868i, Panaflow HT and C-ET high temp transducers.Technologies to fit the application
