Permanent/fixed clamp-on flow metering solution from Micronics
Clamp-on to a new alternative to cutting pipes and mechanical meters from Micronics for significant installation savings and simple, accurate flow measurement from outside the pipe.
Sub-metering of hot and chilled water services to monitor, control and manage water and energy consumption is an area of growing demand 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 from the longest established manufacturer of clamp-on, ultrasonic meters has arrived, the U1000 from Micronics. Building on their many years of experience and success in this area, Micronics has now developed a cost-engineered, factory configured water flow measurement solution to facilitate the wider use of water sub-metering and flow measurement for energy monitoring.
The U1000 is a simple out of the box, onto the pipe meter or flow measurement solution with no programming or specialist engineering required! Simply tell Micronics your pipe size and they will send you a factory configured meter, ready to clamp-on and produce flow information in minutes. All you have to do is clamp the unit to the pipe, release the sensor clamps, connect power and enter the pipe size. 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, plus dry servicing, providing minimum downtime and maximum availability.
The U1000 is a transit time ultrasonic flow meter designed to work with clamp-on transducers, to provide accurate measurement of liquid flowing within a closed pipe, 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!
So if you need a stand-alone water meter or sub-metering of hot and chilled water services as part of your aM&T or BEM’s system the U1000 should be a must consider solution.
