Benefits of Energy and Domestic Water Submetering


One of the top priorities of building owners and operators is the need for more efficient and accurate BTU metering.

Having 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; retrofit capability—no shutdown required, all in one BTU meter, low flow sensitivity for measuring off peak flows, and 1% accuracy.

In this presentation we will cover clamp-on BTU metering technology, features, accuracy, and discuss the benefits of submetering in the energy industry.
