June 25, 2020 – Badger Meter, a global manufacturer of flow measurement, control and communications solutions, announced its Dynasonics UHC100 ultrasonic thermal energy meter is one of the first instruments to receive the Canada Weights and Measures approval for use in liquid heating and cooling applications in Canada.
The UHC100 meter meets the need for accurate measurement of thermal energy metering in accordance with strict industry guidelines. Serving as a thermal energy metering system, it calculates energy quantity (gigajoules, kilo or megawatt hours) by measuring the amount of liquid flowing through the flow sensor in a given timeframe, and the liquid temperature at the supply and return flow positions of the system, to obtain the temperature difference.
The UHC100 meter has already received Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) approval for compliance with the EN1434, 2014/32/EC standard for heat meters and their sub-components in the European Union (EU). This standard specifies the general requirements for metering devices used to measure the heat which, in a heat-exchange circuit, is absorbed or given up by a liquid called the heat-conveying liquid. The thermal energy meter indicates the quantity of heat in legal units.
This certification will enable Badger Meter to meet the needs of Canadian end users seeking an effective solution for measuring heating and cooling energy as part of building automation and tenant sub-metering applications.
The UHC100 meter can be used with heating/cooling water solutions in centrally heated or cooled spaces such as residential houses or buildings.
With a pulse output for use with nominal flows of 0.6…10 m³/hour, end fitting options include ½, ¾, 1 and 1-½ in. NPT for ASME/ANSI pipes. The meter’s readings are stored in internal memory and monthly values are viewable on the display.
The UHC100 meter is delivered in user-configuration mode with the flexibility to configure meter parameters such as units, pulse outputs, and other features.
