Spire Metering is proud to present the smallest yet extremely powerful portable flowmeter / BTU meter on the market!
Our innovation never stops! This Handheld Ultrasonic flow and BTU meter, the RH40, is a revolutionary portable meter with numerous features and powerful functions. It is the most compact and mobile portable flow / BTU meter on the market. The meter is completely portable and relies on clamp-on sensors to effectively perform non-invasive flow and thermal energy measurements. This yields major advantages, such as no pipeline disturbance, no pressure loss, and most importantly no process interruption.
Using the patented signal processing technology that demonstrated its robustness and data measurement repeatability, the portable meter offer a highly accurate and reliable measurements. The meter user interface is self-explanatory and simple to follow. The unique strap-on fixtures for both the ultrasonic transducers and the temperature sensors make the installation hassle free and no special skills or tools are required.
The RH40 handheld unit has a rechargeable battery allowing the user to measure flow and energy for more than 8 hours. A built-in data logger memory of up to 2GB gives the user the flexibility of using the meter for data-logging and data-analysis.
The RH40 is the best choice for flow surveying, meter verification, energy auditing, pump checking, HVAC and energy balancing, facility management and other demanding flow and energy monitoring applications.
