Micronics heatmeters collect usage data in prestigious, London office building

A privately owned company with headquarters in Loughton, Essex and offices in the City of London use 3 Micronics U1000 heatmeters to collect usage data from different landlord and tenant circuits in Chancery House, a 9 storey, multi-tenant office building in the London Borough of Sutton. Bill Burns, Project Director for Vertex Building Services Ltd had used Micronics heatmeters in the past. “I was impressed with Micronics products and therefore had complete confidence that the U1000 heatmeters would perform flawlessly and deliver the data required for this long-standing client. Vertex won this contract following a lengthy tender process so we were doubly determined to do a perfect job and therefore needed to have that confidence.”

The new U1000MKII-HM is a “Best Value” Clamp-on, Ultrasonic heat meter alternative to traditional inline energy meters. It provides reliable energy management and billing applications in domestic and commercial, district or shared heating or cooling systems. It delivers significant installation cost and dry maintenance benefits over traditional inline products because pipes do not need to be cut into, meaning that installation costs and, significantly the time taken to install are greatly reduced. It is simple to install with no specialist skills or tools required. You simply connect the power and enter the pipe inside diameter, adjust the sensors and clamp-on the pipe. It features a cross correlation flow measurement system and 1Mhz transducers to get through poor and/or older, thick wall pipes and larger pipework. Micronics provide a complete range of heatmeters and flowmeters, both fixed and portable.
