The Best Ways to Calibrate Flow Meters

Flowmeters calculate volume by measuring the rate at which fluid and gases move through them. Accurately measuring these volumes is critical in optimizing the use of energy to pump the water, ensuring that water conservation programs are properly managed, help determine where possible losses are occurring as well as ensuring revenue losses are minimized. Calibration … Continued

McCrometer Electromagnetic Flow Meters

Electromagnetic flow meters (or mag meters) are volumetric flow meters that do not have moving parts that wear, ultimately reducing the need for maintenance and replacements. Accuracy on these flow meters on a wide flow range can be near an average of +/- 0.5% or better. They include an obstruction-free design, eliminating flow impediment, and … Continued

New Contract Between Itron and United Utilities in England

Itron recently announced that they had signed a contract with United Utilities to deploy their next-generation cloud-based meter management solution, Temetra. With their latest technology, utilities will be equipped to read 1.6 million meters with the goal in mind to elevate the way water is delivered and managed in the northwest region of England.   … Continued

How to Know if a Flow Meter Reading is Accurate

Flow meter measurement is of the utmost importance when determining accuracy. Typically, accuracy is measured as a percentage of full scale or percentage of reading/percentage of rate. Understanding how these two methods operate will allow you insight into how water meters operate and will enable you to determine their accuracy.   The percentage of full-scale … Continued

How to Know it’s Time for Differential Pressure Meter

Municipal flow applications utilities and districts need propeller meters, an electromagnetic meter, or any other type of no moving parts meter that acts as an ultrasonic device. However, there are some situations where differential pressure (DP) meters are a more viable option – more specifically, the VM V-Cone, a DP meter designed by McCrometer for … Continued

Badge Meter Improves Hydronic System Performance at NYC Hospital

Many hospitals are working below peak efficiency, including chiller and condenser systems. This is more often than not because of poorly designed and operated maintenance practices, resulting in high energy costs and unreliable equipment with a short life span. Metropolitan hospitals need efficient procedures with heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to make for an … Continued
