Micronics heatmeters facilitate accurate cost allocation in 7-storey building

A regional provider of electrical engineering and contracting services to the commercial, industrial, health and educational sectors installed 14 Micronics U1000 Heatmeters in a new 7 storey building in Princes Street, Manchester. Based in Salford, Greater Manchester, WMB Mechanical has been established in the North West since 1982. The units were required as part of a Building Management scheme. As the client was sub-letting each floor they wanted to monitor energy usage as part of an energy saving scheme and for the purposes of accurate billing. Phil Bluer, a Director of WMB has used Micronics flowmeters and heatmeters very successfully for a number of years. “WMB has relied on Micronics products for many tasks, both large and small including for numerous projects at the University of Manchester and, we therefore, have complete confidence in recommending the quality and service of their products to our clients. We will continue to count on them for the foreseeable future, particularly as its deployment minimises costs.”

The U1000MKII-HM is a “Best Value” Clamp-on, Ultrasonic heat meter alternative to traditional inline energy meters, for energy management and billing applications in domestic and commercial, district or shared heating or cooling systems, because pipes do not need to be breached or disturbed during installation. In addition to the significant installation benefits the ultrasonic clamp-on thermal, heat/energy meter also delivers cost and dry maintenance benefits over traditional inline products. The Micronics U1000 meter is suitable for flow metering of hot water, chilled water, potable water and demineralised water, making it very flexible for use in the energy management or building services industries for LTHW or chilled water circuits. It uses ultrasound to measure flow rate and PT100 temperature sensors to measure flow and return temperatures, displaying energy rate and totalised energy with pulse output and communication options, so it can be used as a standalone meter or as an integral part of an aM&T or BEM’s system.
