Why Submetering is Crucial for Reducing Energy Consumption & Cost


Today the reduction of energy and operational costs is one of the top priorities of building owners. Not only does this drive the need for a more efficient and accurate BTU metering, but also creates more sustainable buildings. Since the early 1980’s ultrasonic clamp-on Flow meters have been utilized for BTU metering and submetering. Some advantages of FLEXIM clamp-on meters are; retrofit capability no shutdown, 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 concepts, attributes, accuracy, and provide case study examples.
