The government’s Climate Change Levy has concentrated minds on all forms of energy efficiency. On average in the UK, leakages account for over 35% of all compressed air is released back to atmosphere in the form of leakages. Monitoring of compressed air, natural gas and water supplies enables identification of energy-usage, which is the starting point from which savings can be made. The following range of flow measurement products are designed specifically for the energy management market.
Compressed air - ST51 thermal flow meter
Air compressors can be extremely costly to run and can represent a significant operating cost. In order to implement a strategy to reduce leaks and cut losses, a thermal flow meter will calculate a baseline usage figure which can then be used to evaluate future efforts to reduce leakage.
Natural Gas - ST51 thermal flow meter
Many industries use significant quantities of natural gas which represents a large part of their operating costs. In the food industry it is used to fuel the ovens for drying and baking, whereas in the automotive sector it is used for drying newly painted panels. Manufacturers need a method of checking their actual usage against the annual bills from their gas suppliers.
