What is the Directive on Measuring Instruments (MID)?

European directive for controlled measuring instruments no. 2004/22/EC The MID is a new European directive on measuring instruments. The directive no. 2004/22/EC was adopted by the European Parliament and Council on March 31st, 2004. The directive takes precedence over national regulations in each member state of EU. 

It covers ten categories of measuring instruments (including water meters) and it is designed to harmonize the requirements for new measuring instruments placed on the market or put into use in Europe by eliminating the regulatory differences at national level which hinder trade. 

The directive is in accordance with recommendations of International Organization of Legal Metrology OIML www.oiml.org and the European Cooperation in Legal Metrology WELMEC www.welmec.org. The MID Certificates of conformity are valid throughout Europe. As a result, it will be easier to trade with controlled measuring instruments.

Save time and money with ELIS PLZEŇ a. s. certified water meters according to the MID

In March 2011, ELIS PLZEN a. s. obtained the certificate no. TCM 142/11-4817 for the ultrasonic battery-powered water meters FLOMIC FL5024 and FL5044.

ELIS PLZEN a. s. is now one of the few manufactures of controlled measuring instruments who are able to produce quality and accurate water meters according the MID, which is valid for whole Europe.

In other words, our customers have the advantage to install a certified water meter to the measuring system as a controlled measuring instrument without any other metrological approval in Europe. As a result, our customers simply save time and money.

The tests of our water meters FLOMIC FL5024 and FL5044 were carried out according to the international recommendation OIML R49 Edition 2006 (E) along with EN 14154-1:2005+A1:2007. The test protocol no. 6015-PT-P0008-10 was issued the 21st of March 2011.

How to save 210 000 € a year?

Ultrasonic flowmeters FLOMIC FL5024 and FL5044 Are you a supplier of water and you want to effectively manage it? Have you already thought, how important is the accuracy of measurement and selection of a suitable water meter for your purpose? Most international, national or regional standards including European, relating to water meters intended for measuring billing supplies or water consumption are based on the recommendations of OIML R49. This recommendation is based on OIML and European Standard EN 14154 and many other national standards. Twofold errors of measurement are permitted for water meters after operational use in the case of the control and according to the above recommendations we are talking about, ± 4% in the range of flow rates Q2 ÷ Q4 and ± 10% in the range of flow rates Q1 ÷ Q2. What does it mean?

Consider water meters VMi with following dimensions and nominal flow:

• VM1 … DN 50, Q3 = 25 m3/h

• VM2 … DN 100, Q3 = 100 m3/h

• VM3 … DN 200, Q3 = 400 m3/h

For our case, we can suppose that the relevant flow through the flow meters VMi is in size of 50% of the nominal flow rate Q3 for a period of one year. The volume of water by individual water meters for one year is Vi and we are assuming a 4% measurement error. Then the absolute magnitude of the error of the measured flow volume is 0.04 multiplied by Vi. If we take account of the average price of water 3 EUR/m3, then we have got the price of measured volume of water per year ΔCi.

V1 = 109.500 m3, ΔC1 = 0,04 x 109.500 x 75 = 13.140 EUR

V2 = 438.000 m3, ΔC2 = 0,04 x 438.000 x 75 = 52.560 EUR

V3 = 1.752.000 m3, ΔC3 = 0,04 x 1.752.000 x 75 = 210.240 EUR

That means that the financial compensation for the supply or consumption of water may be 210 thousand € per year with permissible error of measurement 4% and water meter dimension DN 200.

Long-term accuracy of mechanical water meters fully meets the above standards, and is actually on the edge of ± 4%, respectively ± 10%. With regard to the dimension and volume flown in your system it is possible to derive the annual financial loss due to inaccurate measurements.

Is it possible to change this situation? Yes, the possibility of reducing the risk of excessive financial losses due to measurement error is the use of modern electronic, especially ultrasonic water meters, see e.g. http://www.elis.cz/en/ultrasonic-water-meters-flomic-fl5024-and-fl5044.html. These modern water meters provide 2 times better accuracy and long term stability measurement without influence on water quality and wear of flow measuring parts of flow meters, it means a permanent accuracy of measuring.

Do you know what electromagnetic flow meters

FN 20XX 0913If not, the following lines are intended just for you. 

Electromagnetic flow meters measure electrically conductive fluids and their frequent representation can be in the water and heat industry, or in the food, chemical and agricultural industries. 

Electromagnetic flow meters can be used for example for measuring clean and drinking water, industrial water (mud, sludge), salt water, various kinds of acids, chlorinated water, milk, ... 

Conversely, for liquids of low electrical conductivity, which is needed for proper function of the electromagnetic flow meters, such as oil, diesel, gasoline, distilled water or alcohol etc. It is necessary to choose a different type of flow meter. With high precision and no pressure losses in the pipe can be electrically non-conductive liquids reliably measured by ultrasonic flow meters, about which you can find more information on the website. 

If you are not sure whether the liquid which you would like to measure is sufficiently electrically conductive, we are here for you.
