The Impeller series from Badger Meter – USA is a range of insertion style flow sensors designed to measure water and chemicals via insertion through the pipe wall.
Fitting an insertion meter is simpler, faster and cheaper than cutting a section from the pipework to install a full-bore flow meter.
Featuring a closed, six-bladed impeller design, using a proprietary, non-magnetic sensing technology, these meters offer high repeatability at lower flow rates. Sensors can be interchangeable, eliminating the need for recalibration after service or replacement.
Impeller flow meters are available in a choice of construction materials and a variety of sizes and outputs or LCD displays. With an accuracy of +/-1% and flow rates up to 9 m/s and up to 69 bar, depending on model, the Impeller series makes an ideal choice for use with corrosive and non-corrosive fluids even at higher system pressure.

For the third year in a row, we have dug out our favourite xmas knits and gladly taken part in Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day!
The money raised from the event helps saves children’s lives around the world. Donating just £2 could potentially bring essentials like health care, education, protection and food to children who are missing out on the most basic support. Information on the organization can be found here.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a fun and festive Christmas and a happy new year!
At this time of the year it’s especially important to keep track of how much home heating oil you have remaining in your oil tank.
The Apollo Smart is the world’s first home energy monitor, designed specifically for domestic oil heating installations. Fitting easily onto the oil tank, the Apollo Smart allows heating oil users to determine the volume of fuel remaining in their tank, as well as monitoring heating costs, consumption and emissions.
The transmitter relays data, including estimated days until empty, wirelessly to a mains powered receiver unit where it is displayed on an easy to read LCD display. So you can always see whats in the tank from inside your home.
The Smart Monitor features a built in fuel theft alarm to alert the homeowner and a low level warning alert to let users know when the oil tank is running out.
We would like to thank those of you who took the time to visit our stand during WWEM exhibition held in Telford last week.
It was our pleasure to meet you and was also great to see some familiar faces. We were overwhelmed by the number of visitors to our stand and the interest in our new range of products as well as our existing selection.
We were showcasing our range of environmental monitoring instruments including water level loggers, waste water samplers, level sensors, open channel flow meters and telemetry data loggers. Information on these products can be found in the environmental section.

Last month our trained technical sales team were invited over to Bialystok in Poland for product training on the Plum Mac R6 telemetry system – an intelligent readout and data logger.
The Mac R6 is easily programmed with a secure cloud based platform or a mobile app which can be downloaded on all Android phones. When connected to these, the user is able to download and view all of the information from the device including historical data and graphs, allowing information to be accessed securely from any remote location 24/7.
At Bell Flow Systems, we pride ourselves on product knowledge, when offered product training we believe it can only enhance our existing expertise. Over the course of two days, the specialised training covered the production and manufacturing of the Mac R6, including a guided tour of the company factory where other products are produced as well. Plum have a world class calibration facility in house which means all testing is done on site.
The team undertook training on using the online eWebtel software and how to create user profiles and set up measuring points. They were also shown how to programme the Mac R6 with the OptoBTEx optical reader and the mobile app specifically created for android phones.
As well as extensive product training, the sales team also experienced the local beer and traditional polish cuisine including Pierogi – dumplings packed with sweet or savoury filling, yum!
