    12/11/2018

    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.

  2. Saving Energy And Enhancing Environmental Sustainability At A Top University In Asia
    12/11/2018

    At one of the most prestigious universities in Asia, the main campus comprises a large number of buildings clustered within an area less than 2 km2 (1.2 mi2). Because the university was built more than a century ago, many facilities on the campus were never fitted with the proper instrumentation for energy measurement, making it difficult or impossible to monitor the performance of most HVAC systems, including the cooling system.

  3. Field Test Turns Clamp-On Ultrasonic Skeptics Into Believers
    12/11/2018

    After having been reluctant of using clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters for energy measurement in cogeneration plants in large residential and commercial buildings, a U.S.-based engineering firm was convinced by the clamp-on meter’s strengths.

    11/28/2018

    Like wastewater treatment plants across the country, Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility experiences fluctuations in the volume of water to be treated due to the inflow and infiltration of stormwater. During storm events, this variation can be between X and Y mgd.

  7. Clamp-On Ultrasonic Flowmeters: How They Measure Up
    11/28/2018

    Not cool enough in summer. Not warm enough in winter. Guests staying at a prestigious country club in New York state complained regularly about the air conditioning and heating of their luxury suites and apartments. The geothermal heat exchange system serving this facility had never, in fact, been fully functional.
