Heat metering partnership offers range of benefits

4advantage UK Limited, supplier of metering, monitoring and controls products, has formed a partnership with Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution Group, providing sales and service within the UK for the full range of Ultrasonic energy metering equipment.

The new Ultraheat 2WR5 ultrasonic heat meter from Siemens is currently the only ultrasonic heat meter in the world whose flow port, even for flow rates from 0.6 to 2.5 m³/hr, is all metal. Thus the heat meter’s flow sensor operates without any moving parts, which results in no wear and tear. Siemens assigns the meter a useful life of more than 15 years.

A patented ultrasound signal guidance system offers a measuring accuracy that exceeds the German PTB and the European CEN stipulations. Available for all nominal flow rates from 0.6 to 60 m³/hr, with low pressure loss, units can be installed with no required pipe restrictions and can be supplied in battery or mains-powered versions. Various communication modules and programmable pulse outputs (ideal for BMS) allow meters with self-diagnostic functions to communicate with the supporting software and optional billing packages.
