It’s time for a true cooling meter solution

Brought to you by Kamstrup

Discover how Kamstrup cooling meters are helping building owners and design consultants overcome the most critical cooling challenges in commercial buildings.

Cooling energy management challenges

Managing cooling applications in commercial buildings can be a complex job. Energy consumption, workload efficiency and energy meter lifespans all need to be balanced and optimised. Building managers are often faced with:

Low delta T syndrome
The most typical technical challenge for chilled water systems.
It increases water pump energy consumption and decreases overall operational efficiency.

Inadequate automation
Parameters set by the original design consultant are not in sync with day-to-day operational needs.

Inefficient cooling systems
Poor operation practice can lead to cooling inefficiencies and reduction in chiller lifetime.

Poor data quality
Accurate temperature measurements are essential to efficient cooling operations.

Uneven energy distribution
Different parts of buildings can become warmer or cooler than others when cooling energy is unevenly distributed.

Hardware failures
Condensation is the most common reason for cooling hardware failure.

To optimise efficiency, lower energy costs and improve occupant comfort, it’s essential that commercial buildings avoid these problems.

A true cooling meter solution

Cooling meters from Kamstrup solve the most critical cooling challenges. All Kamstrup cooling meters and sub-assemblies hold the highest compliance with the EN1434 standard. They deliver the optimal cooling management experience, enhancing energy efficiency, delivering precision accuracy and ensuring total reliability.

Enhanced energy efficiency

Kamstrup cooling meters use temperature offset and valve control features to beat low delta T syndrome. By using a Kamstrup PQT controller module with the MULTICAL platform, building managers can use flow, power and temperature data to automate the AHU actuator-driven valve and optimise energy consumption. Optimisation in energy consumption can be achieved because the PQT controller monitor and enforce the desired delta T.

Optimise operations

PQT controllers deliver flexible automation features to building operators, which help them achieve optimal system efficiency. Kamstrup MULTICAL cooling meters come with an innovative temperature offset function to achieve precision data readings of ±0.1 K when measuring inlet or outlet temperature. Kamstrup 2-wire sensor solution delivers the same performance at a competitive price compared to the normal 4-wire sensors in the market, saving you a lot of money.

Lower cost of ownership

BTU meters/thermal energy meters often fail when exposed to condensation, especially in hot and humid environments. Kamstrup provides you with a true cooling meter solution that is condensation-proof as both ULTRAFLOW 44 and TemperatureSensor 63 & 83 have high immunity to the intrusion of water and come with a unique IP68 approval. It prolongs the life of the meter solution and reduces the cost of ownership for building owners.

The ultimate cooling platform

A true cooling solution is more than the sum of its parts. With MULTICAL, Kamstrup’s third-generation thermal energy meter platform, you empower users with:

• Lower energy costs
Precision readings mean that building owners can trust that they’re only paying for the energy they use.

• Lower total cost of ownership
IP68 protection helps avoid condensation-related failures and ensures that building owners maximise the value of a true cooling solution throughout its lifespans. 

• Improved occupant comfort
With innovative calculator and sensor technology, building operators can optimise occupant comfort, ensuring cooling energy is distributed where and when it’s needed most.

The combination of advanced calculator technology, precision temperature/flow meters, modular communication and IP68 protection provides building operators with a flexible solution capable of meeting every challenge head-on.
