  • Smart meters: Truly a cure for energy blindness?

    And now for a dose of reality.   No doubt smart meters are a good thing, but even their most ardent fans must admit that a degree of hoopla surrounds these little digital boxes. We hear that if consumers can just see how much power they use in real time, and what it costs, our energy woes will be no more.   Smart meters will even cure the blind. The energy blind that ...

  • New Energy Smart Meter Rules Approved

    Ofgem has approved new industry rules designed to “protect and empower” domestic and business energy consumers. The code, ...

  • Why we need to get enthusiastic about smart energy meters

    The national rollout of smart energy meter systems will give power back to consumers while helping to create a sustainable energy future - but only if the technology is adopted enthusiastically. Paul Rafis explains why we need to promote a culture of proactivity to make the smart meter project successful.   The fight for energy sustainability is being ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • Smartest smart meter: The gasoline pump?

    Americans do many things well. These things do not include sacrifice of creature comforts. So it came as a surprise to see US Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash) suggest we can avert 20% of our energy use if we take short “military showers” over 20 weeks.  Who the heck is going to do that? We already know from Jimmy Carter-era energy policies that lecturing Americans does not result in sustained ...

  • Smart Water Metering For Smart Cities

    One of a city’s most important pieces of critical infrastructure is its water system. With populations in cities growing, it is inevitable that water consumption will grow as well. The term “smart water” points to water and wastewater infrastructure management system. A smart water system is designed to gather meaningful and actionable data about the flow, pressure and ...

  • Preventable Mistakes with Vortex Flow Meters

    Vortex flow meter technology is an ideal technology for many applications particularly saturated and supersaturated steam, volumetric water applications as well as flow energy management (natural gas, compressed air, steam, water) in facilities and large campuses. In some of these applications, vortex installations can be tricky and take flow expertise for the most successful installations. Kam ...

  • A new hardwire circuit for metering reactivity

    Sub-criticality, criticality, and reactivity are the terms which are not annunciated in Indian PHWRs (Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors) and are thus not very clear to the reactor operators. These parameters are prime movers defining nuclear reactor and should be annunciated in control room by simple means to aid operator to view reactivity excursions while in power operation or during shutdown ...

  • Smart metering use cases to increase water and energy efficiency in water supply systems

    Efficient water and energy use in water distribution systems is being limited by the lack of sufficient data about water and related energy consumption. Therefore, it is crucial to provide updated and continuous feedback information to water users. This paper describes relevant use cases to improve efficient water use and related energy consumption by water utilities and consumers through the ...

  • Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study

    Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a ...

  • Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop

    Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One of the most common problems affecting processing plants that utilize compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable air pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but it’s more commonly found that the cause ...

  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Size reduction of profiles up to 6 meter (20 ft.) length

    Neue Herbold SR + LP series granulators are designed and manufactured for the size reduction of full length profiles and pipes eliminating the need to pre-cut the material into shorter lengths. The 6000 mm (20ft.) profiles or pipes are fed horizontally into the granulator. Generally the LP series granulators are used for the size reduction of PVC profiles and the SR series granulators are used ...

  • Non-Contacting Solution for Plugged Off Flow Meters in The Oil Patch

    For years Petrobakken Energy Ltd. used inline turbine flow meters to track the flow rate of oil recycled to treaters. But with a high concentration of wax and sand in the oil, the turbine meters were quickly plugging off. The line had to be shut down at least once a day and the turbine flowmeters disassembled for cleaning. This was troublesome and expensive. Petrobakken knew there had to be a ...
