Metering Solutions for Effective Energy Management

Manufacturing is one of the main consumers of global energy consumption. Energy prices are constantly rising and with increased pressure from the Government to improve energy efficiency. As a result, energy management is always high on the agenda for plant engineers.

Effective metering is fundamental to energy management. With meter data proving invaluable for calculating energy use, finding routine energy waste and ultimately finding potential energy (and cost) saving opportunities.

Here are some of our top energy monitoring solutions:

Water Metering and Monitoring

Water Meters

Industry is reliant on water for all levels of production, but there is too little focus spent on managing water consumption.

AquaLink II is a smart constant monitoring system that remotely records water
consumption data from flow meters.

Features:
Data transmission via Wifi/ GPRS/ GSM.
Real time data from remote locations.
Single & multi-channel models.
Data retrieval via secure website.
Download data to CSV file.
SMS and email alerts / alarms.
Weatherproof IP68 case.

Gas Metering and Monitoring

Gas Meters

Gas used in process operations – such as in industrial furnaces – cannot easily be replaced with renewable sources. However, its use can be monitored.

The MFGD is an accurate digital mass flow gas meter for natural gas applications.

Features:
Uses MEMs technology.
Ultra-low pressure drop.
Temp up to +55°C / 5bar pressure.
Sizes 1 1/4 to 3.
Pulse and Modbus output options.
Lithium ion battery.
LCD display.
Aluminum body.

Electricity Meters and Monitoring

Electricity Meters

Continually operated machinery can use a large amount of electricity. Subsequently, reducing this primarily requires the identification of inefficient and unintended electricity usage.

The EM21 is an innovative three phase electricity meter. Its removable LCD display means the same unit can be either DIN or panel mounted.

Features:
Compact electricity meter.
All types of supply (1-2-3 phase).
Class 1 accuracy (kWh).
Multi-line LCD display.
CT connected.
Pulse and Modbus output options.

Heat Meters and Monitoring

Heat meters

Heat meters are designed to meet the needs of measurement in heating, hot water and chilled water applications.

Minols WR3 is a heat integrator that functions together with 3rd party flow sensors with a pulse output.

Features:
Multi-data energy integrator.
MID Class 2 / 3 (dependent on installation).
LCD display with removable heat calculator.
m³, kWh, MWh or GJ.
Saved readings for last 24 months.
6 year battery / AC option.
M-Bus, 2 pulse inputs / outputs.

Steam Meters and Monitoring

Steam meters

Steam is an energy medium and many production plants employ steam for heating, processing and even cleaning. But the need to measure steam flow is not always fully appreciated.

Our selection of Vortex steam meters suitable for saturated & super heated steam applications.

Features:
Integrated pressure & temp compensation.
Temp up to +250°C / +350°C.
Stainless steel body.
Wafer and flanged connections.
Sizes 1/2″ to 12″.
LCD display.
Pulsed, 4-20mA and M-bus outputs.
