Micronics portable flowmeter provides reliable service for 30 years
A specialist in leisure and swimming pool filtration, water treatment and installations uses a Micronics Portaflow 220 in projects from Land End to John o’ Groats to test the flow rates in swimming pools. This is to enable H2O Servicing to determine the correct circulation and backwash flowrates which are continually being provided through pressure sand filters, and which need monitoring every day to ensure the filters are clean and the design flows are being maintained. For example, in the heart of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, they carried out a project with the aid of the Portaflow in a former public bathhouse and Grade II listed building constructed in 1933.
Brian Worthington, a Director at H2O Servicing is a loyal advocate of Micronics flowmeters: “We replaced the Portaflow in late 2018 because it was 30 years old and we had no hesitation in going back to Micronics because the portable flowmeter had given us such good service over the years.”
Micronics design, manufacture and market “Clamp-On” ultrasonic liquid flow measurement meters, which are used in the process, energy management and retrofit building services markets around the world to help reduce energy consumption and monitor water use. And not only portable instruments, as in this case but also fixed applications. The clamp-on flow meters from Micronics, deliver simple, accurate flow measurement from outside the pipe so that there is no need to cut into pipes, allowing fast and accurate flow measurement with minimal disruption, a fact greatly appreciated by swimming pool authorities which are open to the public 7 days a week.
The Portaflow range brings simplicity to the non-invasive measurement of liquid flow and offers the user quick and accurate flow measurement with its easy to follow menu and simple set up. Results can be achieved within minutes of opening the case. Compact, rugged and reliable, the Portaflow range has been designed to provide sustained performance in public authority buildings, commercial and industrial environments.
In the last 5 years, Cheshire based H2O Servicing has carried out in excess of 200 refurbishment contracts and also provide design, supply, installation, commissioning and aftersales service through to implementation of new build projects.
