Bell Flow Systems are pleased to introduce the ARG100 rain gauge into their range of environmental measurement products.
The ARG100 is a cost effective solution for precipitation measurement. The aerodynamic design ensure that the sensor does not interfere with the surrounding airflow ensuring that accurate measurement of precipitation is continuously achieved. The U.V resistant materials ensure robustness in the field to maintain a high level of measurement accuracy. In standard form the rain gauge is offered with a 0.20mm per tip pulse output, however additional options are available.
Measurement of rainfall is achieved using a traditional “tipping bucket” mechanism which has been proven as a reliable industry and scientific standard for the measurement of precipitation for many years. Each tip of the bucket provides a contact closure of a reed switch to create an output from the rain gauge.
The output from the ARG100 can easily be connected directly to our OM-CPPULSE101 for local da…
Effective fuel management is essential to any organisation wanting to successfully monitor their fuel levels and prevent fuel thefts occurring especially in third world countries. When completed properly, it can make a vitally important contribution to the profitability of such organisations. The cost of fuel and its usage is a significant overhead for any commercial establishment.
Bell Flow Systems were approached by Telecomms specialist, Alan Dick Company in Africa to provide a unique solution to a range of problems, surrounding supply, delivery, remote reporting and security that they were facing. There was currently no one single solution on the market to help them and so they commissioned Bell Flow Systems to supply various integrated products and services. The company successfully installed oil flow meters, remote telemetry equipment, fuel management hardware and software plus accessories and commissioning for this bespoke fuel monitoring project in Gabon, Africa.
Bell Flow Systems were recently asked to provide a meter suitable for accurately measuring and recording the flow of sea water being pumped across a beach at Hinkley point.
Hinkley point in Somerset is the site for a new nuclear power station, the first in the UK for a generation. As the 10 year construction scheme begins there are many environmental factors to be considered at each phase. One of these is to ensure that enough water is pumped from the sea to areas where it is required to help preserve marine life following the temporary construction of a new jetty and sea wall, built to allow materials for the construction of the power station to be delivered by sea.
To provide evidence of sufficient pumped water supply, Bell Flow Systems were required to provide a suitable flow sensor to meet the demands of the application. The flow meter must be compatible with sea water and designed to cope with the challenging weather conditions found on this beach side installation location. It mus…
