And being able to demonstratewhat’s flowing where, not flowing or even flowingbackwards can go a long way to establishingconfidence with potential customers that yourcompany knows what its doing!Surveying existing large-scale heating and HWSinstallations to establish a basis for installingimprovements can be a daunting task andEnvironmental Treatment Concepts (ETC)www.electronicdescaler.com have found that thePF330 portable clamp-on flow and heat-meterfrom Micronics www.micronicsflowmeters.comis an ideal tool for the job.Established in 1989 ETC has helped manycommercial and industrial clients save thousandsof pounds with their Effective Physical WaterTreatment. Water that is naturally hard, as in70% of the UK contains dissolved calcium andother minerals and their effect on pipe work andwater systems can be disastrous includingreducing heat exchanger energy efficiency byup-to 40% due to lime scale build-up. TheMicronics products are used to demonstrate howbad the performance is before installation and theimprovements in efficiency following installationwith LTHW pipe sizes ranging from circa 2 to 18inches. The ETC products prevent new andreduce existing lime scale, water flow rate is akey factor in the process and the PF330 providesthe essential information for assessment andtimeframes for improvement.Having considered various suppliers ETC selectedthe Micronics – PF330 - Time of Flight - portableflow instrument plus heat-meter data-logger.Portable Clamp-On Ultrasonic flow measurementhas clear advantages for survey work andMicronics were selected as the supplier due to acombination of their long-term experience withnon-invasive, Clamp-On technology, productperformance and pre-order assistance.ETC Technical Services Manager - Simon Elliotsays “The PF330 has proved to be a great tool toundertake plant surveys including identification ofcirculation shortfalls, even pumps goingbackwards. It provides a real insight into what’sgoing on, like having X-ray vision. And it’s also avaluable tool for demonstrating how well ourinstallations work to improve performance andreduce energy consumption. The Micronicswebsite and pre-order support was good and theproducts are simple to use. We’ve got a lot ofPublic sector – MOD and Hospital installationswith very old pipe work where we’ve been pleasedwith the product performance and the ongoingservice support has been there when we’veneeded it.”

On a project carried out during2010 they had a requirement to processthe ash extracted from their boiler flue gastreatment system by mixing this withwater to form slurry suitable for disposal.The ash is extracted from the flue gasusing an Electrostatic Precipitator with theash collecting in hoppers, which havevarying fill rates determined by theextraction process. These hoppers thenfeed through to mixers where a specificwater flow rate is required to achieve thetarget slurry consistency from the plant.The plant has 32 water lines with pipesizes ranging from 18 to 1 inch diameterpipe and the Micronics Portaflo meterswere used to accurately measure thewater flow rate for the set-up of eachmixer section.The alternative to using the portable meterwould have been 32 fixed metering pointsand as a consequence the use of theportable, clamp-on solution generatedsubstantial benefits in terms of reducedcommissioning time - labour and fixedmetering point costs, plus the addedadvantage that the PF330 can beutilised again on other sites withsimilar requirements.Having considered various suppliers LodgeCottrell selected the Micronics - PortafloPF330 - Time of Flight - portable flowinstrument. Portable clamp-on Ultrasonicflow measurement has clear advantagesfor commissioning/set-up work andMicronics were selected as the supplierdue to a combination of their long-termexperience with non-invasive, clamp-ontechnology, product performance andbest value.Project Manager Nigel Dolphin says “ThePortaflo PF330 has proved to be a valuabletool for commissioning of the plant waterflow lines with considerable time and costbenefits over alternative fixed in-linemetering points. The PF330 was simpleto set-up/use and the flow measurementperformance was good. The product hasworked well and the customer service andtechnical support from Micronics has alsobeen good.”The potential for re-use by Lodge Cottrellon other plant installations with similarrequirements is significant and the projecthas demonstrated the clear benefitsavailable from using portable, clamp-on,ultrasonic flow metering for temporaryflow measurement requirements suchas commissioning and set-up of waterflow lines.NowsupersededbyPFD550,seepage18fordetails.YFIXEDUF D5000For “dirty” liquidmonitoringTo suit pipes DN 13mm-4500mmNon invasive sensingEasy to use21up to -UF D5000Suitable for most contaminated fluid flows150 C.

  14. 14. MANCHESTERUNIVERSITYCASE STUDY24BUILDINGSERVICESThe University of Manchester’s EnergyManagement and Building Services team haveinstalled 15 Micronics Heat Meters,utilisingMicronics UF2000 Clamp-on, Ultrasonicflow meters as part of their ongoing energymanagement programme.The University’s heating requirement includingLTHW and MTHW is supplied from sharedEnergy Centres and distributed via a steelpipe network, ranging in size from 200 to300mm. To comply with current legislationand implement the University’s best practiceenergy management programme, the campusis monitored and managed by Energy CostCentres with Display Energy Certificatesrequired for all areas >1000 M2and theUniversity has to account for 90% of theenergy flow from the Energy Centres.Implementing the installation of Heat Metersin an existing distribution network of 200 to300 mm pipe-work would be a major taskusing in-line meters, which led ChrisCunningham, Assistant Mechanical andEnergy Engineer and the team to specifyClamp-on Ultrasonic Flow Measurement.Chris says “After considering the variousoptions Clamp-on Ultrasonic FlowMeasurement was clearly the most cost-effective and least disruptive solution formeasuring flow in our distribution network.In-line meters would have been moreexpensive and very disruptive requiringsystem drain-down and cutting pipe work”.The meters provide 1/2 hour consumptiondata, which is supplied for analysis via theUniversity’s data concentrators and campusEthernet network, providing energyconsumption data for 24hr Laboratories,Conference and Teaching blocks.Micronics were selected as the supplier dueto the University’s previous experience usingthe Micronics Portaflow, Portable Ultrasonic,Clamp-on Flow Meter. A combination ofMicronics profile in the market, long-termexperience with Ultrasonic Clamp-ontechnology plus competitive pricing andproduct performance i.e. best value!Chris has been pleased with the performanceof the Micronics products and says the preand post orderservice supporthas also beengood, however,he feels therequirementfor annualcalibration andthe associatedcosts is an area, which requiresfurther consideration. The project has been asuccess and there are future plans to use thesame technology on the University’s chilledwater circuits.The project has demonstrated how Clamp-on - Ultrasonic technology can be successfullyimplemented as a cost-effective, minimaldisruption solution to provide heat energymeasurement and the potential for replicationon similar campus sites is significant.Micronics Clamp-On Ultrasonic water metersprovide flow measurement for Heat Meteringat University of ManchesterBUILDINGSERVICESMicronics the leading UK manufacturer ofclamp-on,ultrasonic flow metering products forportable and fixed applications has beenassessed and recognised by the CharteredInstitute of Building Services (CIBSE) as a CPD(Continuous Professional Development)Course Provider.The potential for greater use of clamp-on,ultrasonic flow measurement within the BuildingServices sector for new and refurbishmentprojects is significant with both cost andoperational benefits. Micronics is working toincrease greater awareness amongst BuildingServices professionals and their CPD course- Clamp-on Fixed, Ultrasonic Flow Measurementfor Building Services & Energy Management hasbeen positively assessed by CIBSE leading torecognition for Micronics as a provider of CPDcourses recognized by the institute.Course attendance will be accepted by CIBSE asa valid CPD contribution for engineers as part oftheir ongoing development.

  16. 16. Micronics surveys have provided useful informationand an insight into whats flowing where, wevemade a start but we will need to continue withfurther investigations over a longer term to realisethe benefits.The project has demonstrated the benefits ofPortable Clamp-On Ultrasonic flow measurementand that the option to hire or purchase a servicewith the necessary expertise for projects of thistype is a viable alternative to product purchase.RICOH ARENACASE STUDY28BUILDINGSERVICESArena Coventry Limited, a total facilitiesmanagement company, which manages all thefacilities at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, hasreduced water consumption and achievedsignificant cost savings. The company’s originalinvestment in Micronics meters was a HeatMeter installed in 2008 to establish and monitorthe energy costs associated with undergroundheating of the pitch. This was a success andfollowing a later meeting with Seven Trent,triggered by a reduction in water consumption,the valuable information gained and clarificationthat the water used for the pitch heating doesnot go to sewage led to a reduction in watercharges.Energy management to reduce consumption andcosts are a key function of Alan Pickering’s roleas the Ricoh Arena’s Deputy Facilities and EnergyManager. He said “water consumption isa big issue on the site, which led us to invest inthe installation of three Micronics Ultraflo 2000,Clamp-On Flow-Meters in 2009, which weuse with an on-site Monitoring and Targetingsystem to manage the significant waterconsumption onthe site.”The three meterswere supplied andinstalled by Micronics,and provide individualhalf-hour consumptiondata for the north concourse, arena and southernconcourse areas, Within three weeks ofinstallation, the investment identified intermittentcontinuous flushing periods of some WCs in thesouthern concourse area, which when remediedreduced the site water consumption by 50%providing a payback of one month!In addition to the above, Micronics meters havealso been installed in the new Exhibition Hall toprovide consumption data for automatic billing ofwater consumption for this area, which is sharedbetween the on-site G Casino and the RicohArena.Having considered various measurementalternatives, Clamp-On Ultrasonic meters wereselected due to the installation and maintenance/service benefits associated with the non-invasivetechnology including low cost and minimumdisruption installation with no system drain downrequired plus dry maintenance and service. AndMicronics were selected as the supplier dueto Alan’s previous experience with them and acombination of their long-term experience withClamp-On technology; competitive pricing andproduct performance i.e. best value!Micronics’ Clamp-On Flow Meters in conjuctionwith Alan’s effective use of the on-site Monitoringand Targeting system has delivered a significantreduction in water consumption and reducedoverall costs by 50%! He has been very pleasedwith the performance of the Micronics productsand says the pre and post order service supporthas also been very good.Alan believes there is significant potential forongoing savings on-site and the project hasdemonstrated how Clamp-On - Ultrasonictechnology can be successfully implemented asa cost-effective solution to improve heat energymeasurement and water management on similarsites.Micronics Clamp-On Ultrasonic water metersprovide flow measurement for pitch heating,water management and billing at the RicohArena and water costs are reduced by 50%Micronics has a wealth ofexperience hiring manytypes of equipment,especially our own.Remember that when youhire Micronics equipment,you are dealing with themanufacturer with all thebenefits that brings.We have a large stock ofhire equipment on the shelfand ready to go at any time.Do you need an equipmentexpert on site?
