The ABLE Energy Metering System uses ultrasonic clamp-on transit time technology and clamp-on precision RTD temperature sensors to continously monitor thermal flow in pipes providing they are sized from 1/2 to 48″. Furthermore, the clamp on design means the system can be permanently installed within minutes without process shut-down or cutting into existing pipes.
Once in place, the system is said to outperform existing/alternative metering units. Thermal energy flow is calculated in BTU, watt-hours, calories or tons, and a built-in datalogger records the energy usage. In addition, as the system provides accurate measurement at all times, it can produce large efficiency savings in intermittent applications.
Being non-invasive, other benefits include good calibration stability because there are no moving parts to wear or clog.
