Integrating metering components with flow and temperature sensors allows building and facility managers to measure energy costs for hydronic chilled and hot water applications. Meters accurately measure flow and aid in energy cost allocation/sub-metering, energy distribution, system monitoring and operating efficiency calculations.
Accurate energy monitoring and measurements reduce expenses and streamline energy cost management.
Our HVAC flow measurement solutions offer the best in function and flexibility to provide effective metering throughout any facility.
Our wide variety of metering products leverage integrated data to help you monitor operations and optimize system performance.
We put our meter reading data to work to help you address demands for actionable intelligence and improve your operations.
Installing an efficient hydronic system is a critical step, but flow instrumentation meters are essential to maintain long-term accuracy, reliability and repeatability within chiller, chilled water system, thermal energy tank system, boiler, cooling tower, pump and other asset operations.
Flow measurement tools help contractors properly balance chilled and hot water systems to minimize throttling loss and meet design flow conditions. Additionally, flow meters provide accurate data so balancing contractors can cross-check the system, including pump readings, chiller pressure drop readings (if applicable) and the system total.
With flow measurement tools in place, facilities managers can measure steam delivery by monitoring when capacity is exhausted or taxed and managing the turndown between seasonal demand and operational demand. Additionally, flow meters help facilities managers and other key stakeholders ensure they have accurate volume measurements to identify leaks and evaporation amounts.
Flow meters can also measure steam usage in mass units, like lbs., kgs. and tons, allowing building owners to use the accumulated steam usage to bill customers for excess steam production.
Because of this constant operation, geothermal systems require constant measurement to monitor flow rates, water losses and energy use. Missing the design flow by even a few percent can greatly diminish operation, so facilities managers and other key stakeholders invest in flow meters to closely monitor their system.
Provide accurate flow information to maintain proper design flow throughout the cooling tower and provide adequate system cooling.
Convert flow rate and supply—and convert temperature into British thermal unit (BTU) or tonnage (TONN) usage—to show operators when a chiller load reaches 40% or lower, indicating it is time to stage down a chiller. When a load reaches 80% or higher, it is time to turn on another chiller to reduce system load.
Measure the energy consumed within the heating liquid solution and hot water usage for billing purposes.
Determine the volume of water consumption and detect leaks in the automatic cold-water make-up assembly by taking accurate low-flow measurements.
Measure flow rate and temperature to maintain peak performance in condenser water systems.
Ensure good quality boiler supply water and remove low-quality boiler water by measuring boiler feed/blowdown and condensate return flow on a volumetric basis.
Monitor and measure water and/or energy to improve inefficiencies and address cost allocation/sub-metering needs.
Proportionally balance chilled and hot water systems in a way that minimizes throttle loss and meets design flow conditions. Flow meters must provide accurate flow data so the balancing contractor can cross-check the system.
Precisely determine steam delivery within heating systems. As the cost of energy rises, facilities look to increase efficiency within energy and power generation. Flow instrumentation helps measure the steam to provide accurate data.
Report the volume of water consumption to aid in leak detection and evaporation measurement within the saturated steam system, which can cause significant malfunctions.
Maintain proper design flow and provide sufficient system cooling by calculating rates for evaporation, cycles of concentration and cooling water chemical treatment rates.
Measurement is needed for precise staging of chillers. Flow meters must be able to convert flow rate and supply and return temperature into Btu or TONN usage so operators know what the chiller load is. When a chiller reaches a certain load, operators can bring additional chillers online to keep their systems running efficiently.
Determine heat energy within central heating (or cooling) systems, including both glycol and water solutions. Flow meters must be designed to measure energy consumed within the liquid solutions to measure usage for billing purposes.
Measure the volume of water consumed within a system in order to detect leaks in the geothermal system. Flow meters must provide accurate flow information from make-up water lines to calculate the rate of leakage and evaporation.
