Micronics flowmeters used in a major London hospital
A Midlands-based company, formed in 2004 which provides a range of engineering based services dealing with all aspects of the water cycle used 2 Micronics U1000 flowmeters in late 2017 to provide accurate data for the pulsed output for a chemical dosing unit in a major London NHS hospital. Scot Davis, UK Projects Manager for Integrated Water Services had used Micronics flowmeters on a regular basis for some years and so had no hesitation in recommending the use of the flowmeters to the hospital authorities.
Scot Davis is enthusiastic about Micronics units: “The U1000 was chosen for this particular project because I knew from experience that it performed quickly and reliably. Furthermore, it is non-invasive meaning that there is no need to cut into pipes. This in turn meant that installation costs were minimal and disruption was kept to a minimum. This was particularly important to a hospital which operates 24/7 and is part of the cash strapped NHS.” The U1000 is designed to work with clamp on transducers and accurately measures liquid flowing through a closed pipe. There is no need for any mechanical parts to be inserted through the pipe wall or to protrude into the flow system. It takes just a few minutes to install and there is no need to shut down flow or drain the system. Also, only nominal configuration is required on-site because it is pre-configured for pipe size and because dry servicing is possible, maintenance is fast and uncomplicated. Plus it’s easy to follow menu makes operation straightforward making it a very cost-effective alternative to a traditional in-line meter.
