The ultrasonic principle based measuring technology is undoubtedly one of the most reliable technologies within static metering. No moving parts ensure pinpoint accuracy without any maintenance efforts and costs. A Kamstrup solution anywhere in the world will consist of ultrasonic meter and digital remote reading system, thereby making it an effective and efficient smart metering solution.
Watch the movie for more details on how the ultrasonic principle works and how it overcomes the shortcomings of traditional metering.
Mechanical meters have been the preferred choice for a long time. But with digitalisation comes an increasing need for communication and connectivity. Ultrasonic smart meters have no moving parts, contrary to their mechanical counterparts. This makes them more durable and ensures a stable and high accuracy throughout their lifetime. Ultrasonic meters provide a clear picture of network data, as well as accurate billing. In contrast to mechanical meters, ultrasonic meters also have remote reading capabilities with no add-on devices required.
This makes data collection faster and improves resource distribution by avoiding misreading and follow-ups. That way you save time and money that can be used to gather insightful data that empowers you to provide a better service to your customers. Intelligent alarms in ultrasonic meters enable efficient detection of leaks, bursts and reverse flows, lowering the amount of nonrevenue water in your distribution network and preventing revenue loss.
The precision of ultrasonic water meters
The ultrasonic meter has no moving parts and is, thus, less affected by wear and tear. This means that it maintains a high and stable accuracy throughout its entire lifetime, thereby enabling correct billing and better data quality.
Remote reading of the ultrasonic water meter can reduce data collection time from several weeks to a few hours. It enables accurate data, better resource distribution and improved customer service.
Ultrasonic technology helps reduce water loss
Intelligent alerts in the ultrasonic water meter enable efficient leak detection and lower the amount of non-revenue water – because the faster a leak is detected and stopped, the less water is lost as a result of it.
Belgian water utility water-link serves over 640,000 end-users across Antwerp. Until recently, due to a fleet of mechanical water meters, customers were required to manually read their meters and report the value either by mail, online or by phone . But since many never bothered, water-link…
Kiruna Municipality, located at the very top of Northern Sweden, is characterised by an extreme contrast between its desolate wilderness and the growing and developed Kiruna town. Out of the approximately 23,000 inhabitants, about18,000 live in Kiruna town while the rest live…
In June 2019, the town of Oneida, Tennessee, was experiencing an impossible situation. With increasing state regulations and massive water loss, the water department was taken over by the local government. Oneida produces approx. 1500 million litres of water a year and...
