Bespoke Fuel Management Solution

Image
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 sales team invited to product training session

Image
Our technical sales team recently spent two days training at the factory where our flow monitors are manufactured. The training consisted of learning about new and upcoming products as well as customer case studies and success stories.


The team were able to witness our flow monitors in action at a local brewery as well as experiencing some local food and drink. Staff were also able to improve their existing knowledge by adjusting and building the flow switches and were given an informative tour of the factory and workshops.

Diver Level Loggers Used for Water Monitoring Project

Image
A number of Eijkelkamp Diver water level loggers have been used in a ground water monitoring application in Romania. For this project, research is conducted into the feasibility of underground storage for water during periods of severe drought or heavy rainfall.

Water supports organisations in the Dutch water sector with international ambitions have been involved in innovative, international projects, such as the project in Romania in which the so-called MARS technique is applied. MARS stands for Management of Aquifer Recharge and Storage. In this increasingly applied technique, the available storage options for water in the soil are used to their full potential. Due to the geological and climatic characteristics, Romania is the perfect place for this type of water storage.

The MARS project aims to reduce the risks and dangers of drought and flood, and to contribute to a more efficient water management and water delivery method in Romania. Due to the changing climate, the worldwide de…

Insertion Flow Meters from Impeller

Image
The Impeller series from Badger Meter - USA is a range of insertion style flow sensors designed to measure water and chemicals via insertion through the pipe wall.

Fitting an insertion meter is simpler, faster and cheaper than cutting a section from the pipework to install a full-bore flow meter.

Featuring a closed, six-bladed impeller design, using a proprietary, non-magnetic sensing technology, these meters offer high repeatability at lower flow rates. Sensors can be interchangeable, eliminating the need for recalibration after service or replacement.



Impeller flow meters are available in a choice of construction materials and a variety of sizes and outputs or LCD displays. With an accuracy of +/-1% and flow rates up to 9 m/s and up to 69 bar, depending on model, the Impeller series makes an ideal choice for use with corrosive and non-corrosive fluids even at higher system pressure.

Mechanical flow meters are back!

Image
After Forty years of manufacturing in Sydney- Australia by Macnaught Pty , a decision to stop production of M-Series mechanical display flow meters in favour of digital models was taken last year. This has now been reversed for 2017 following a review of global distributor feedback and resurgence in customer demand.

Oval gear meters are widely recognised as one of the most versatile principles of flow measurement, with their ability to accurately meter a broad range of low to high viscosity fluids without the need for flow conditioning. Incorporating this unique oval rotor principle into its design has enabled M-SERIES positive displacement flow meters from Macnaught to offer proven reliability and excellent levels of accuracy and repeatability.



Including a rugged design that minimises the number of wearable and replaceable parts and extends product life, easily fitted and operated mechanical registers, flexibility of installation options; meters can be mounted horizontally or verticall…

Siargo MF5700 Thermal Mass Meters

Image
Measuring flow utilising the leading MEMS technology, MF5700 thermal mass flow meters from Siargo are a cost-effective choice for gas flow monitoring, measurement and control in general purpose flow applications. The meters are designed for use with non-explosive and clean gases such as air and nitrogen.

The MF5700 features a rotatable LCD display showing instant flow, SLPM, accumulated flow and battery status. The compact and portable design makes the meter an ideal choice for various applications where a power supply is unavailable.


Specifications on this range of mass flow meters include: hygienic and oxygen safe copper body, an accuracy reading of +/-3% and a flow range of 0 – 25 SLPM, depending on the model selected. A choice of Pulse, 4-20mA and RS485 outputs are available.
