Bell Flow Systems were recently approached by a customer looking for a reliable solution to remotely monitor a fire hydrant for flow detection and leakage purposes.
The site, located remotely, required a clamp-on measurement solution to provide flow measurement without breaking into the pipeline. Information from the site also need to be available remotely, as well as providing visual alarms to operators at the site office.
Bell Flow Systems supplied the TFX Ultra flow meter and provided a local Modbus output to a third party telemetry system. Data From the telemetry system will be stored onto a web portal providing a visual indication of the current flow, total flow and diagnostic information from the flow meter. Information on the data portal will also show visual alarms so the operators can respond to leakage or flow events at the site office.
TFX Ultra has inherent advantages over traditional devices including clamping onto the outside of pipes and not contacting the internal liquid. Advantages of the TFX Ultra non-invasive flow meter include measurement of a range of liquids with small amounts of suspended solids or aeration, a bi-directional flow measurement and a wide variety of communications including Modbus RTU over RS485 communications; Ethernet connection options includes BACnet/IP, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols.
Meters include a large easy-to-read digital display and a rugged aluminium enclosure for use in harsh environments. For more information on the cost-effective TFX Ultra transit time flow meter please contact Bell Flow Systems.
Bell Flow Systems were invited to the Badger Meter headquarters in Neuffen to celebrate the Badger Meter anniversary and to attend product seminars and the grand distributor’s award gala evening.
The Bell Flow Systems directors, Lee Brogan and Nick Cleaver proudly accepted the silver award for contributing to 6 years of distributing Badger Meter products at the Global distributor meeting awards ceremony.
Technical training days and product seminars were also included in the trip including a tour of the Porshe factory production line in Stuttgart, which the group thoroughly enjoyed.
Bell Flow Systems have recently been working closely with a large global specialist in energy management and automation, to supply non-invasive energy monitoring systems to multiple sites across the EU. The units will be supplying data to be used in the EU commissioned THERMOSS project for energy efficient buildings, under its HORIZON 2020 programme. The project will last for 42 months, and will involve the collaboration of 12 partners from the EU and Switzerland.
The aim of the THERMOSS project is to contribute to the wider deployment of advanced heating and cooling technologies in buildings throughout the EU. This project includes addressing 30% energy consumption reduction in buildings and 20% in districts.
The development process consists of five steps: technology database creation, technology packages refinement, technology package sizing toolbox, thermal energy flow algorithm, integration and validation. The study will be implemented across several key sites in the UK, Finland, France, Switzerland and Spain, as to draw results from various climates and validate the results.
As per the requirements of the heat energy monitoring study, the metering system needs to be reliable and highly accurate, whilst being as non-invasive as possible as not to compromise the existing systems on site.
Bell Flow Systems successfully supplied 14 of the BFU-100-M units with clamp on temperature sensors, to UK and Finnish sites. The BFU-100-M uses an ultrasonic signal from external, clamp on sensors, to calculate flow rate without needing to alter or cut into any pipework. The sensors simply clamp on to the outside of the pipe.
The ultrasonic sensors, and temperature sensors, feed back into the energy calculator which provides the user with accurate and reliable energy usage information. This data can then be fed back to a PLC or building management system to for monitoring and usage analysis via a pulse, 4-20mA, or Modbus communication output.
New Electromagnetic hygienic flow meter released by Badger Meter and available at Bell Flow Systems further extend our ability to provide an ideal solution for many applications.
The new MS1000 is a fully stainless steel, robust electromagnetic flow meter, specially designed to be used in the food industry and meet the highest requirements. It is available with various process connections and installation lengths for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications. It is also resistant to aggressive chemicals used in CIP and SIP processes.
MS1000 electromagnetic mag meter
The MS1000 benefits from the attributes of all electromagnetic flow meters with no mechanical moving parts and the meter bore is free of obstruction producing a negligible pressure drop and giving the meter long life with long term high accuracy. The high accuracy makes it a great option for dosing or mixing applications and with digital and analogue outputs the measurements can be transferred to control systems.
The meter also benefits from Modbus RTU RS232 / RS485 communication as standard and with optional Ethernet, Hart or MBus interface making it a flexible option to integrate into existing systems.
Bell Flow Systems has recently supplied a Stainless Steel Turbine Meter to Awash Winery in Ethiopia. Not only is this winery the largest in the country, but it is also part owned by UK equity firm chaired by Sir Bob Geldof.
Awash currently bottles seven million litres of wine annually. It plans to boost production under 12 brands, including the well-known Axumite, Awash and Gouder names.
Gouder is a national brand Geldof first tasted in 1984, when he got back from areas of drought in the north that had taken the world by shock. The 1984-85 Ethiopian famine had prompted many such as Geldof to galvanize the international community for help. He is known to be a force behind a LiveAid concert, a phenomenal event that was the first to get broadcast live across the world for the first time, and as a result raised over 100 million dollars for charity
Geldof says he decided in 2013 to get involved in the winery hoping to see the factory expand and improve in order to provide additional employment. The transfer in technology and skills, he said, expedites development and ends dependency in Ethiopia.
The Turbine meter is the second unit to be installed in the production process as the original meter, supplied through a third party has proved to be accurate and reliable. The BLFT turbine meter features a high +/-1% accuracy and is constructed from stainless steel ensuring it ideal for the measurement of low to medium viscosity liquids. As standard meters include a long battery lifetime of 4 years and a choice of 4-20mA signal, pulse outputs and programmable alarms.
