New FMT 3 Innovative Digital Flow Meter

Image
Introducing the latest product from German manufacturer - Tecalemit, a durable multi-purpose digital turbine flow meter, suitable for; diesel, fuel oil, water, antifreeze and Adblue®. Now available in the UK from Bell Flow Systems, the FMT 3 flow meter features a symmetrical measurement chamber allowing the device to be used with flow in both directions. Models are straight forward to operate and suitable for use in automotive environments and most downstream oil applications, where measured fluids display a wide range of viscosities. 
The meter is ingress protected to IP65 and features a large illuminated LCD display with freely rotatable viewing angle, adjustable in 90 degree increments. A unique feature of this model within its’ target markets is the magnetically coupled operation ensuring total separation between wetted components and the display, which can be removed during operation . This is especially helpful for any future maintenance since it allows the user to replace just …

Ultrasonic Level Measurement Goes Truly Wireless!

Image
The demand for wireless communication in the field of sensors and measurement devices is forever increasing, with technology development operating nonstop. The problem most consumers currently face however is that products which claim to be wireless, commonly are not truly wireless. Although the systems on the market can provide wireless communications, they are not able to operate without the need for power.  The LNU ultrasonic level sensor from Bell Flow Systems tackles this problem with its truly wireless design. The sensor itself contains a Lithium battery supply which means the user can simply install the sensor in their application without the need to connect a power or a communications cable to the device. Configuration of the device is simple, using a wireless dongle called a Wiji the user can connect to their device via a laptop and view live level data, stored level data from the unit’s internal data logger and / or make changes to the sensor configuration. If operating mult…

Hinkley Point Power Station Application

Image
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…

Portable Ultrasonic Flow Meter Installation for Aquatic Exhibits Specialists

Image
Bell Flow Systems were recently approached by a company who specialize in the set up and maintenance of aquatic exhibits in zoos around the UK.

The company required a flexible, portable metering option, which would allow their engineers to measure the flow rate in a variety of pipe sizes without having to interrupt the flow or disturb the animals.



With inherent advantages over traditional in-line flow meter technologies, the cost-effective BFU-100-H handheld portable ultrasonic heat meter was chosen. The ultrasonic flow meter was supplied, as it allowed the engineers to use the same meter at various zoos, on a wide range of pipe sizes and materials, without having to cut into the pipe and cause potential contamination issues.

The BFU-100-H is a battery powered, non-invasive meter which clamps on to the outside of virtually any pipe material, from 25mm to 700mm in diameter, and is accurate to ±1%. Featuring a flexible installation in which the meter can be mounted both horizontally or …

BK Diaphragm Gas Flow Meters from Elster

Image
BK Diaphragm gas flow meters utilise a precision multi-chamber measurement design offering long term accuracy and stability with maintenance free operation. 
The Elster BK range of gas meters feature robust steel construction and are suitable for metering natural gas, town gas, Propane and LPG in most domestic & commercial applications. MID approval ensures these meters have guaranteed low flow performance and EN1359 certification ensures UK safety compliance.

All models feature an integrated mechanical totaliser, providing a clear meter reading, although they can be fitted with an IN-Z61 pulse transmitter enabling data to be viewed remotely.
Available in a range of sizes from 20mm to 100mm with a maximum compliant working pressure of 0.5 bar and with UK standard connection centres and BS746 threads with coupling options.
