Our acquisition of Stream Measurement Limited provides JWF with fiscal and secondary gas meter calibration. Stream acquired the UK gas meter repair and calibration facility from Itron Metering Solutions, providing Itron with a local repair and calibration service for their fiscal range of gas meters. The facility is now further extended to accomodate the repair and calibration of all manufacturer's gas meters whilst also enabling our secondary metering customers to benefit by ensuring their gas meters are tested to the same exacting fiscal standards.
The rigs ensure that a wide range of flow rates can be achieved, with their high capacity flow-rig providing one the highest UK capacities enabling flow meters up to 400mm to be verified. Whilst predominantly used for the testing of Rotary Piston (RPD) and Turbine meters, the rigs can also be utilised to verify most flow meter technologies, using air as the test medium, achieving flow rates from 0.3 to 3120m3/Hr.
The Facility & Equipment:
Designed for the fiscal calibration of gas meters this test facility is fully environmentally controlled, whilst the testing of standard gas meters is automated to achieve the highest test standards are maintained.
The testing equipment includes:
Bell Prover: regarded as the standard for gas meter calibration, used primarily for the testing of Diaphragm, RPD, and Ultrasonic meters. Fully traceable to National Standards the system is fully automated and electronically controlled to ensure the highest level of accuracy and test repeatability.
High Capacity Flow Rig: used to test large gas meters and regulators. The rig can accommodate meters up to 400mm (16") in size and can be used to verify many meter technologies including Turbine and RPD.
Whilst operated as a totally independent test facility, we share a special relationship with Itron which means they can provide a full gas meter repair and refurbishment service for the entire range of Itron (including Schlumberger, PCC and Parkinson Cowan) gas meters whether fiscal or secondary, which not only means these meters can be repaired locally in the UK on a fast turnaround, but also saves our customers money by preventing the need for meter replacement and increasing product life.
Subject to spares availability we are also able to extend the repair service to other manufacturers meters including Elster and VemmTec.
Whether your need is for commissioning or calibration of an existing flow meter, repair or simply advice on your existing application JWF are here to help.
