Leading Gas Meter Calibration Facilities
Used mostly by the UK Gas Utilities, Stream’s gas meter test facility is fully approved for the testing of fiscal gas meters and is one of only three fiscally approved test facilities in the UK.
Adding to their product support expansion, in 2013 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 accommodate 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 flowmeters 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 flowmeter 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 Test Equipment Includes:
Bell Provers: regarded as the standard for gas meter calibration, used primarily for the testing of Diaphragm, RPD and Ultrasonic meters. Approved and fully traceable the Prover Rig 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 (50mm and over). The rig can accommodate meters up to 400mm (16″) in size and can be used to verify many meter technologies including Turbine and RPD.
