Heat meters measure thermal energy and work where there is a supply and return pipework configuration. Heat meters measure the flow rate and temperatures of the supply and return to calculate a value of thermal energy.
Our range of heat meters are suitable for domestic and commercial applications, including for uses under the Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations 2014 such as building entry meters and can be pre-installed in hydraulic interface units (HIU).
Heat meter flow tubes are normally installed in the return pipework but can also be purchased for the flow pipework. A temperature sensor will need to be installed in the flow tube, ball valve or pocket in the supply and return pipework.
We recommend a MID Class 2 ultrasonic heat meter is selected for billing applications, with an output for remote reading such as MBus, Wireless MBus or LoRa, as well as allowing a connection to a PAYG Solution.
