MILWAUKEE – Badger Meter announced its Dynasonics UHC100 ultrasonic thermal energy meter is one of the first instruments to receive the new Canada Weights and Measures approval for use in liquid heating and cooling applications in Canada.
The UHC100 meter meets the need for accurate measurement of thermal energy metering in accordance with strict industry guidelines. Serving as a thermal energy metering system, it calculates energy quantity (gigajoules, kilo, or megawatt hours) by measuring the amount of liquid flowing through the flow sensor in a given timeframe, and the liquid temperature at the supply and return flow positions of the system, to obtain the temperature difference.
The UHC100 meter has already received Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) approval for compliance with the EN1434, 2014/32/EC standard for heat meters and their sub-components in the European Union (EU). This standard specifies the general requirements for metering devices used to measure the heat which, in a heat-exchange circuit, is absorbed or given up by a liquid called the heat-conveying liquid. The thermal energy meter indicates the quantity of heat in legal units.
This new certification will enable Badger Meter to meet the needs of Canadian end users seeking an effective solution for measuring heating and cooling energy as part of building automation and tenant sub-metering applications.
“We are pleased to receive the Canada Weights and Measures approval of our ultrasonic thermal energy meter, which will allow us to server a wider range of customers in the growing Canadian market,” said Cheryl Ades Anspach, senior product manager for Dynasonics, Badger Meter. “The UHC100 meter was designed to help end users obtain the most precise thermal energy measurements in a compact package.”
