New Test Rig at Bell Flow Systems

We are excited to announce the completion of our new test rig.

Constructed in-house our new raw water test rig has the ability to test and calibrate flow meters. The test rig is a PLC controlled PID loop with pipe sizes from ½ up to 4, accompanied by a multistage pump capable of pumping up to 1000 litres a minute. The master meters installed on the rig are the latest electromagnetic flow meters from Badger Meter which perform to an accuracy of better than ±0.25%.

The core function of the test rig is flow meter calibration which will be traceable to UKAS, this new service offering will allow us to provide flow meters prepared for their application consequently reducing inaccurate calibrations made onsite by customers. The test rig will also be used for confirming the accuracy of flow meters; tests that can be performed in-line using flanged/screwed flow meters and also externally when testing ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters. In addition to this the test rig will be used for employee training purposes, flow meter demonstrations and customer training.
