MQM Quantometer gas flow meter

MQM Quantometer Gas flow Meters are now available in the UK exclusively from Bell Flow Systems. Manufactured by Metreg Technologies who offers a complete product range of fiscal and non-fiscal gas flow measurement meters for industrial and commercial applications.
MQM wafer style Gas turbine flow meters are ideal for commercial and industrial applications for non-fiscal measuring of natural gas in pipe sizes from DN50 up to DN150 and larger. Offering a range of wafer styles, these aluminium meters are ideal for secondary metering or in-process measurement. They offer high accuracy and a choice of calibration options. They are mainly used for internal measurements or control tasks.
The MQM Quantometer is based on the principle of a turbine flow meter. The flow of the gas to be measured causes the turbine rotor to rotate. The gas flow is narrowed on an annular cross section, is accelerated and directed onto the smooth-running Aluminium rotor. The number of rotations is proportional to the measured gas volume; the frequency of rotations is proportional to the actual gas flow. The rotation of the rotor is connected to a speed reducing gear train and transmitted via a magnetic coupling from the gas pressurized area to the adjustable 8 digit roller counter fitted to the outside of the meter
The MQM Gas Meter is suitable for installation in hazardous areas of Category 2 (Zone 1) II 2 G c IIC T4 X. It is designed for flow and volume measurement of non-corrosive and non-aggressive gases like natural gas, nitrogen, air (and other gases on request) in non-custody transfer and process applications. The MQM is available in sizes from DN 25 (1´´) to DN 150 (6´´) with a volume flow rate up to 1600 m3/h depending on meter size.
The lifetime durability of the MQM Quantometer is very stable due to the large dimensioned high precision ball bearings “Made in Germany” along with the high precision machining of the body and all moving parts. All MQM Quantometers are equipped with precision machined Aluminium turbine wheels. After machining all Aluminium parts, especially the turbine wheel, are hard anodized for reduced friction and higher resistance to mechanical wear and tear or chemical attack. In case of contamination or dust in the measured gas it is recommended to install an optional oil lubrication pump for increased operating life. During installation and commissioning a temporary Top Hat or Cone filter should be installed to prevent meter damage.
The Quantometer is a turbine gas meter and registers the actual volume with an eight-digit mechanical roller counter. Utilizing the LF of HF pulser (reed contact) the volume pulse output sensors allow for remote monitoring, data recording and linking with Building Management Systems (BMS) as well as with gas volume correctors (EVC's) and our ATEX telemetry systems.
