Non-invasive flow measurement solves problem at University of Manchester

Non-invasive flow measurement — the Micronics U1000 clamp-on system.

Faced with the problem of invasive heat meters for three boiler houses at Manchester University having been installed incorrectly, assistant mechanical and energy engineer Chris Cunningham looked to Micronics to solve the problem using clamp-on flow meters for pipes of 250 mm and larger. He had used Micronics clamp-on flow meters before and knew that they are easy to install without having to drain down and cut into pipes.

Incorrectly installed invasive heat meters result in inaccurate data, which can have considerable knock-on effects.

The solution was provided by the Micronics Ultraflo U1000 system, which provides accurate measurement of liquid flow in a pipe without the need for mechanical parts to be inserted through the pipe wall or be inserted into the flow system. It takes just a few minutes to install by clamping onto the pipe, connecting power and entering the pipe diameter. There is no need to shut down flow or drain the system, and no programming is required.
