Measuring the heat/energy consumption of hot (LTHW) and chilled water services to monitor, control and manage energy consumption is a key area in building services and energy management. But the installation process including system drain down, pipe cutting etc has always been a significant cost and barrier to wider application of sub-metering. At last a solution has arrived from the longest established manufacturer of clamp-on, ultrasonic meters the U1000 HM heat/energy meter from Micronics. Building on their many years of experience and success in this area, Micronics has now developed a best value clamp-on heat/energy meter to compliment its successful U1000 clamp-on flow meter and facilitate the wider use of clamp-on ultrasonic flow measurement for water sub-metering and heat/energy measurement.
The U1000 HM is a simple out of the box, onto the pipe heat/energy metering solution with no programming or specialist engineering required! All you have to do is clamp the unit to the pipe, select the pipe size, release the sensor clamps, secure the pre-wired, clamp-on PT100 flow and return temperature sensors and connect power to the pre-wired cable provided. Yes it really is that simple because Micronics have listened and simple installation is a key design feature. Another cost-effective alternative to expensive in-line meter installation from Micronics with no drain down or cutting of pipes required plus dry servicing, providing minimum downtime and maximum availability!
The U1000 HM is a clamp-on, transit time, ultrasonic flow meter plus PT100 temperature sensors designed to provide accurate measurement of liquid flowing within a closed pipe plus the flow and return temperature difference to calculate the heat/energy load, without the need for any mechanical parts to be inserted through the pipe wall or to protrude into the flow system. It takes just a few minutes to install and there is no need to shut down flow or drain the system! And its Modbus compatible, so it can be used as a standalone meter or an integrated part of your aM&T or BEM’s system.
So if you need to meter the heat/energy load of hot (LTHW) or chilled water services as part of your energy management strategy or building services, for retrofit or new build applications, the U1000 HM should be a must consider solution!
