Micronics flowmeter measures water flow through sampling equipment
A Hampshire-based consultancy with expertise in aquatic biology and the ecological effects of water abstraction and discharge used a Micronics U1000 flowmeter to measure how much water was flowing through their sampling equipment on the River Arun in West Sussex.
Pisces Conservation MD, Richard Seaby found out about Micronics by searching the internet for a reliable UK-based flowmeter supplier, and found the sales people extremely helpful at the High Wycombe-based manufacturer and supplier of ultrasonic liquid flow meters. He decided to purchase a U1000 in May 2017 and has been so pleased with his decision that he has gone on to invest in a data logger to record where and when the flows are happening to enable him interpret the captures in relation to the actual flow patterns of the site. “We selected the Micronics U1000 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. Because the system does not need to be drained down or pipes cut into, the Micronics meter is much quicker and cheaper to install than other types of flowmeters. The precision of the data delivered is excellent and its operation has proved outstanding. The technical support and assistance from Micronics allows us to conduct our calculations seamlessly”.
The U1000 is a fixed, clamp-on, pipe-mounted, ultrasonic flow meter, which delivers significant installation savings and dry servicing benefits for a wide range of pipe sizes from 22 mm – 115 mm OD. It features a simplified guide rail and sensor assembly meaning that installation is very straightforward, something that was important to Pisces Conservation. Equally crucial was the fact that the Micronics product was non-invasive, delivering low install costs.
