Churchill College – Micronics Portaflow 330 used to test flow rates and temperatures at Cambridge college

Churchill College, Cambridge’s Deputy Maintenance Manager used a Micronics Portaflow 330 to test the flow rates on the heating circuit in the College. There was a problem in March 2016 with blocked radiators and Michael Doyle wanted to check whether hot water was reaching individual areas of the college, which is divided into four courts. He also wanted to gauge the temperatures. He had heard about Micronics flowmeters in 2013, searched the internet to find out more and decided that the device would be ideal for his purposes. He has used it regularly since then throughout the college on the hot and cold water services and the heating system.

The specialist Micronics product, used for clean liquid monitoring, with its integral logger and software and non-invasive measurement represented significant savings on installation costs and less disruption than when installing an alternative in-line meter. The Micronics clamp-on flowmeter for liquids is portable and easy to use and offers continuity and long term reliability. It is robustly constructed and provides a quick and reliable means of measuring flow accurately.

“We selected the Micronics Portaflow originally due to the ease of installation and the maintenance and service benefits delivered by this non-contact technology and have been very satisfied with its operation and the data it provides. We have continued to use it on numerous occasions,” commented Michael Doyle.

Founded by Royal Charter in 1960, Churchill College is the national and Commonwealth memorial to Sir Winston Churchill.
