Accurately metering commercial and industrial water accounts is a key element to reducing apparent water loss. In general, commercial customers make up only a small percentage of a utility’s customer-base; however commercial customers consume significantly more water than the average residential account.
Consumption patterns of commercial and industrial customers often alternates between low flow rates and continuously high flow rates. Kamstrup flowIQ® 3100 industrial water meter uses a bidirectional ultrasonic measuring technique to ensure commercial and industrial water consumption is measured accurately at both high and low flow rates. With no moving parts and by this no risk of wear, the meter will maintain a high and stable accuracy during its lifetime.
Much more than consumption
The meter’s intelligent alarms enable you to detect bursts, leaks, and any instances of reverse flow or tampering attempts, quickly and efficiently. This reduces the water loss and possible collateral damages to the distribution network.
Durable, watertight construction
flowIQ® 3100 is constructed with a composite housing on top of a flow part made from brass or stainless. The housing is IP68 rated, meaning the meter can be installed and permanently immersed in water without any risk of water ingress into the meter display or internal components.
Property managers need intelligent, accurate water metering to ensure they can mitigate leaks and bursts, cut costs, optimise consumption, and minimise water loss.
flowIQ® 3100 is an ultrasonic meter for measuring cold water consumption. With its integrated remote reading capabilities, flowIQ® 3100 enables accurate remote reading without additional add-ons. This makes data collection both safe, fast, and straightforward. With a range of intelligent alarms, it is easy to detect leaks, bursts, dry meter, reverse flow and tampering attempts, so you can limit the risk of water loss and damages to buildings. It monitors the ambient, and for the smallest meters, also water temperatures. Hereby you can foresee burst and leak risks and be alerted to possible changes in water quality.
Businesses need better insight into their water consumption to optimise costs and create more sustainable business practices. It is essential they have a metering solution that can provide a long service life, get useful information on faults via alarms and data to make the right choices and mitigate risks.
flowIQ® 3100 is an ultrasonic meter for measuring cold water consumption in commercial and industrial premises where consumption often alternates between high and low flow rates. With a very low start flow and no moving parts that can be affected by wear and tear, it retains the same pinpoint accuracy for its 16-year life span. With a range of intelligent alarms, it is easy to detect leaks, bursts, dry meter, reverse flow, and tampering attempts, so you can limit the risk of water loss and damages to buildings. It also monitors ambient, and water temperatures for the smaller meter types, so you can foresee potential risks of bursts at sub-zero temperatures, or detect changes in water temperature that may cause deterioration in water quality.
Engineering projects require unique solutions than can provide security, precision, and long service life. For this reason, we continue to develop state-of-the-art water metering solutions that help our customers meet every challenge.
Built for commercial and industrial applications, flowIQ® 3100 delivers accurate ultrasonic metering and range of intelligent features to meet a variety of contexts and challenges.
With its integrated reading capabilities, it enables remote reading, making data collection both safe, fast, and straight forward. Plus, with a very low start flow and no moving parts that can be affected by wear and tear, it retains the same pinpoint accuracy for its 16-year life span. Intelligent alarms make it easy to detect leaks, bursts, dry meter, reverse flow, and tampering attempts, so you can limit the risk of water loss and damages to buildings.

Saldanha Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
Saldanha Bay is located in the Western Cape Region north of Cape Town in South Africa. The municipality has a dedicated strategy to become one of South Africa’s first smart cities. Part of the strategy is to combine the utility’s consumption data with the city’s information system to better utilise its value. In 2017, they therefore decided to install smart water meters that are read automatically via a radio network.
