What Are You Measuring?
- Liquid Flow
- Steam Flow
- Natural Gas Flow
- Thermal Energy Measurement
There are two measurement opportunities in heating hot water applications; the hot water output exiting the plant and a sub-metering opportunity at the receiving end. ONICON offers an array of hot water flow meter technologies specifically suited for this challenging application. Some of the considerations that drive the technology selection include installation requirements, accuracy requirements and maintenance implications. ONICON's insertion turbine and insertion electromagnetic flow meters are easy to install in new or existing systems, provide accurate measurements over a wide flow rate turndown, and deliver years of trouble-free service in closed loop hydronic systems.
For installations requiring the highest degree of accuracy, such as cost allocation, performance contracting or sub-metering, an inline electromagnetic meter may be the best solution. Where dedicated thermal energy (Btu) measurement is required, as in the case of a distributed hot water system, ONICON offers the System-10 and System-20 BTU meters. Both work with any of our hot water flow meters and are provided with a pair of precision matched temperature sensing devices and a plethora of outputs, including BACnet, MODBUS, digital I/O and analog signals.
We guarantee you quality hot water flow meters and are so sure of our products that we offer a 1-year no-fault warranty and a 3-year manufacturer warranty on all of our products. This ensures you’ll receive the durable and reliable products you need to keep your projects moving. The ONICON Difference includes our customer-oriented team helping you from start to finish and out in the field. We calibrate our meters to meet your specific application needs and make certain your products can be easily used right out of the box. The combination of an ONICON flow meter and Btu meter creates a system with the highest level of performance in the industry.
Depending on the requirements of your heating hot water application, other ONICON meters may be better suited. Please see the meters below, or feel free to contact ONICON or your local sales representative for further conversation.
