A commercial real estate corporation that owns, develops and operates premier properties in major North American cities was one of the earliest companies to recognize the benefit of individually metering tenants for their utility usage. When designing a prestigious building complex in New York City, the company sought a flow meter that would facilitate this task. After careful consideration of several options, the choice became clear: clamp-on ultrasonic flow technology from Siemens.
In any district cooling operation, a well-balanced system based on accurate and reliable flow and temperature measurement is extremely important. It is therefore imperative that every company regularly check the efficiency and performance of their cooling system, and be prepared to make drastic changes if required. Since heating and cooling costs account for more than half of a building’s total energy consumption, the extra time and cost may very well be worth the effort.
