Rugged Digital Pressure Gauge From APG

The PG10 indoor/outdoor digital pressure gauge from APG is well suited for use in applications where visibility, functionality and stability are of primary concern. Key features of the PG10 include a large 5.5 in. display casing, a full five-digit display with characters at 0.68 in. tall, and a 270° digital “dial” or radial bar graph that shows a user-selectable pressure range from 0 to 100%. Combined with four large set-up buttons, the result is a robust pressure monitoring solution that is fairly simple to set-up and operate, with true at-a-glance readability.

The digital pressure gauge features an operating temperature range, from 0° to 160° F, benefits from a ±0.25% accuracy of full scale, and features pressure ranges from vacuum to 500 psi, or 0 to 10,000 psi. Outputs are 0-2 VDC for battery-powered units, 4-20mA for loop-powered units, and 0-5 VDC for externally powered units. Built in data logging provides the user with local access to the latest 60 readings.

With an IP65 rated weather-resistant housing, the PG10 digital pressure gauge is ideally suited for outdoor applications in harsh environments. To find out more about the APG products we supply, visit our website.

Axis Heat Meters installed in the skyscrapers of Dubai

More than 1,500 ultrasonic cooling energy meters were installed in the 55-story Juma Al Majid Tower which is nearing completion in the centre of Dubai. Both luxury apartments and commercial spaces will be created within the tower block. The building is rising alongside the Burj Khalifa, which, at 828 meters, is the world's tallest skyscraper.

The Juma Al Majid Tower installation package features the MID Approved Qalcosonic-Heat 1 product, which are the most popular ultrasonic heat meters produced by Axis Industries in Lithuania. They can measure both heating and cooling thermal energy supplied and are available from Bell Flow Systems Ltd, partners to Axis Industries in the UK.

Currently, specialists working with Kimans Inc, in the United Arab Emirates, are finishing the installation of these heat meters in the Tower and connecting them to a remote data collection system to facilitate energy monitoring and management throughout this state of the art building.

“The successfully completed project allows us to plan the implementation of two to three similar orders in the United Arab Emirates' market within the coming months. The annual demand for cooling energy meters that our partners in Dubai can acquire is about 25,000 devices,” commented Axis Industries' commercial director.

New for 2017 - Aquadis+ Water Meter Range

The Itron Aquadis+ range of mechanical water flow meters are suitable for both primary and secondary domestic billing due to their approval to the OIML R49 standard and European MID - Directive 2004/22/EC. The working principle of Aquadis+ is based on the established rotary piston design which is magnetically coupled to a hermetically sealed counter mechanism.

The range is manufactured from high performance thermoplastic materials offering user benefits including corrosion resistance, reduced size and weight as well as long-term mechanical stability. This composite design is durable and water resistant to IP68, it is also approved to the UK national drinking water approvals scheme –WRAS standards.



Aquadis+ is provided pre-equipped for Itron’s Cyble technology, making it possible to mount plug-and-play Cyble communication modules when required . This facilitates connection to a range of Automatic Meter Reading systems (AMR) such as Radio walk-by systems, radio fixed data collection systems and M-Bus wired or wireless systems. Some of the key advantages of using the Cyble technology include flexible network integration, leak detection and zero sensitivity to magnetic fields.

For more information on the Aquadis+ water meter range, please contact Bell Flow Systems on 01280 817304 or sales@bellflowsystems.co.uk.

Water Quality Products from ECD

Introducing a comprehensive selection of water quality instruments from Electro Chemical Devices (ECD) including the popular T80 Transmitters and the new S80 Sensors, now available from Bell Flow Systems.

The S80 Intelligent Sensor range includes pH Sensors, ORP Sensors, Ion Selective Sensors, Dissolved Oxygen Sensors, Conductivity Sensors and Resistivity Sensors.
The Sensor works by converting the analog signals from the electrode sensor cartridge into a digital protocol which allows for two way communications with the transmitter.

When connected to an ECD T80 the sensor’s information is uploaded to the analyser. This automatically configures the display and outputs of the transmitter to the values appropriate to the measurement range and type.



Sensors benefit from a long life replaceable electrode cartridges, lowering the operating cost and are available in a range of materials and sizes. Various process fittings with adjustable insertion lengths including threaded fittings, sanitary fittings, flanges and valve retractable fittings make the sensors ideal of a range of applications.

The T80 Universal Transmitter is a single or dual channel transmitter designed for continuous measurement of pH, ORP, pION, Dissolved Oxygen, Turbidity, Conductivity or Resistivity in general purpose industrial environments.

The Model T80 transmitter is available as a loop powered (single channel only), a 24 VDC or a 100/240 VAC powered transmitter. The loop powered version is available with an optional HART® output. The line powered instruments have one 4-20 mA output per channel and MODBUS RTU. Contact us for more information on our range of ECD water quality instruments.
