HVAC represents one of the biggest costs of operating and maintaining commercial properties. A top priority of building owners and operators is the need for more reliable and accurate BTU metering.
Good and reliable information can help reduce the amount of energy used by operating more efficiently. This can help reduce operational costs and recover revenue from inaccurate billing.
Since the early 1980’s ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters have been utilized for BTU metering and submetering. Some advantages of clamp-on meters are include retrofit capability—no shutdown required; all in one BTU meter; low flow sensitivity for measuring off peak flows with 1% accuracy.
In this presentation we will cover clamp-on BTU metering technology, features, accuracy, and discuss the benefits of thermal energy metering.
