Bakery In Knead Of RHI Steam Metering

Image
Producing over 1 million loaves of bread each week, a prominent bakery based in the North required a solution to measure their steam generation.
During a recent refurbishment, the bakery installed a number of sustainable heat sources and required steam meters permissible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). RHI provides financial support to participants who install renewable heating technologies. Where required, metering is used to measure the heat / steam produced by the renewable heat installation.
The large, state of the art bakery required the installation of numerous steam meters so that the heat delivered from the steam boilers could be calculated.  This was achieved using RHI compliant BFVM vortex flow meters suitable for saturated and super-heated steam applications up to +350°C. The BFVM with integral temperature and pressure sensors provides constant measurement of steam mass and steam energy, whilst independently displaying the steam temperature and pressure.

Between Flanges- The Quick Insertion Turbine

Image
Over the last 25 years Blancett have built up a reputation for producing rugged and accurate stainless steel turbines which remain popular within the oil and gas industry today. The QuikSert is one of Blancett’s innovative turbines which has been designed for quick installation.
The QuikSert is an in-line turbine flow meter that provides the same high accuracy and rigorous design of the standard Blancett turbine, but in a wafer-style mounting configuration. It’s unique between flanges design eliminates the need for mating flanges, requires less space in the flow line, lowers costs and provides easy, one-man installation.
Turbine flow meters operate by the fluid or gas passing through a turbine, causing the turbine to rotate at a speed proportional to velocity. As each turbine blade passes through the magnetic field generated by the meter's magnetic pick-up, an AC voltage pulse is generated. These pulses provide an output frequency that is proportional to volumetric flow.

Datalogger Providing Remote Energy Monitoring

Image
Monitoring energy consumption and taking manual meter readings can be a time-consuming task for energy managers and the need to monitor across several facilities has become standard. Aqualink is a new highly sophisticated datalogger that enables remote online monitoring and management of water, gas, electricity, steam and building occupancy among others.
Combining both hardware and cloud based software, Aqualink is an ideal solution for remote online monitoring of flow, consumption, level, temperature and pressure. The system has been designed to connect to third party utility meters and take real-time readings which are transmitted via Wifi or GSM/GPRS to a user friendly web application where energy consumption can be viewed and analysed.


Supplied in a compact IP68 weatherproof case and with a long life battery, the Aqualink hardware has been designed to withstand less than ideal conditions and can be installed in the most remote locations. The integrated communication options allows f…
