The latest check-metering technology from Siemens , the Sitrans FUP1010, is a portable clamp-on unit, specifically designed for the water and wastewater industry to measure the performance of existing flow meters with accuracy, performance, versatility and compatibility.
The FUP1010 check-metering kit with a heavy-duty construction adjusts between two modes of operation – transit time operation and Doppler operation – to produce optimal measuring results for all technology, aeration and solids percentages.
Transit time operation is the preferred mode for measuring homogenous liquids such as primary sludge, mixed liquor or drinking water applications with accuracy. For liquids containing extensive solids or aeration percentages, such as thickened and digested sludge, the Doppler operation can automatically verify liquids with accuracy of up to 1 percent of the flow.
This versatile unit is completely portable and comes with all mounting hardware to undertake on-site flow surveys and monitoring of temporary or permanent flow meter installations. The four-hour battery is fully recharged after one hour and the selection of transducers will fit most common pipe sizes and styles.
In meeting the industry’s demand for better quality metering data, the check-metering kit incorporates a 1MB data-logger, which produces reports and statistics that can be easily downloaded to a PC through the RS232 cable.
Siemens Product Manager – Flow Instrumentation, John Kearton, says that the FUP1010 is part of a suite of flow instrument solutions that is designed and constructed to exceed industry standards in metering.
The functionality and portability of the FUP1010 make it a convenient and accurate measurement and verification tool for the water and wastewater industry, allowing users to be confident of their flow meter’s performance. The FUP1010 is specifically designed for the water and wastewater industry, so that it is suitable for checking most installed flow instruments regardless of whether they are based on electromagnetic, ultrasonic, orifice or rotary piston measuring principles.
Mr. Kearton also says that the check-metering kit can be used to measure all grades of liquids with high accuracy across many functional areas. From conductive to non-conductive liquids, to clean or solids-suspended liquids, the FUP1010 incorporates functions such as flow meter verification, temporary leak detection and verification of high-precision tasks such chemical dosing.
The Sitrans FUP1010 check-metering kit comes with a flow computer and logger, mounting hardware, transducers, cables and a carry case.
