Micronics flowmeter used to investigate problems with flow rates
A Warrington-based hygiene management and control specialist purchased a Micronics Portaflow 330 in April 2018 to look at problems with flow rates in CIS (Clean In-Place) Systems in clients’ premises throughout the UK and Ireland. Christeyns Food Hygiene has also used the portable flow meter to verify flow rates. Gareth McCabe, Christeyns’ Dairy Sector Specialist has been so satisfied with it that he has recommended that many clients invest in their own Portaflow. “This Micronics meter is ultra-quick and cheap to install because there is no need to cut into pipes and the system does not need to be drained down which in turn means that installation costs are minimal. An additional benefit of the Micronics product is that only nominal configuration is required on site because it is already configured for pipe size making use very rapid. There is no interruption to process and no downtime whilst the portable flow meter unit is installed. The accuracy of the data delivered has proved to be excellent and its operation has always been exceptional. Furthermore the technical support and assistance from Micronics has always been exemplary.”
