Micronics portable flowmeters used to diagnose faults and monitor water flow
An international I.S.B.M tooling manufacturer uses a Micronics Portaflow 330 flow meter in their Product Solutions Lab (P.S.L) to monitor water flow through injection stretch blow moulding* machines and tooling in their 32,000 square feet facility in Nottinghamshire. And also use the instrument to help to diagnose faults on field installations in the UK and overseas. The fact that the Portaflow is non-invasive means there is no interruption to process and no downtime whilst the flow meter is installed saving crucial time and, money. Daniel Hitchings the Site Engineer (Electrical & Mechanical) at TMIET, R&D Leverage is very positive in particular about the fact that the flow meter is portable: “We travel a great deal around the UK and world so it is imperative that it is capable of being put on a plane. We would openly recommend this unit to any of our worldwide customers. Having a unit that is non-invasive and quick to use, is a great advantage in a time constrained situation.”
Micronics Flow Meters have been established for over 35 years and design, manufacture and market “Clamp-On” ultrasonic liquid flow measurement meters not only as portable instruments but also for fixed applications. The flow meters are utilised in a wide range of markets around the world including Process engineering, Energy Management and retrofit Building Services to find out what’s flowing where, verify process performance, help reduce energy consumption and monitor water use. The wide-ranging variety of products is ideal for process liquid, heating and cooling applications.
R&D Leverage was founded in 1976 in Missouri, USA to serve the tool and die markets and expanded to Sutton-in-Ashfield in the mid 1980’s where it supplies the healthcare, personal care and food & beverage markets.
