RS Hydro were approached by an Energy Systems monitoring company to provide energy use measurements on heat exchangers used in processes within a large bakery in the East Midlands. Measurements were only temporary so PT878 portable clamp on flowmeters with energy kits were used and installed by RSH engineers.
Our engineers were on-site to install the heat meters and assure that the instruments were ready to log flow, volume and temperature every 60 seconds over a period of 2 weeks. The measurements were outputted via 4 -20 mA in L/min for flow and kWh for energy usage. After the two week project, our engineer revisited the site, removed the flowmeters and provided the data for the energy monitoring company.
Our engineers are used to working in industrial process environments such as the one in this bakery application. Aside from being portable energy meters, PT878s can be used by our engineers to verify flow of existing in-line flowmeters within process industries. They can also be used for leak detection and are easily deployable across multiple points of measurement within an industrial process facility.
Whether you require a portable clamp-on flowmeter only or if you need that extra help from one of our engineers to set-up a clamp-on system to obtain useful data, all you need to do is ask RS Hydro and we'll assist you with your industrial fluid flow measurements.
The PT878 clamp-on flow meter is ideal for rental purposes as it is easily installed, up and running in minutes and can be quickly relocated to other pipes.
Our engineers have years of experience installing PT878s on the field and are there to help you obtain flow measurements on your process pipes in order to understand the statistics that interest you about your process such as on the spot fluid flow rates, energy usage and flow-totalized logged data.
