New Range of open channel flow meters available in the UK

Jan 15 2020

Bell Flow Systems are pleased to announce that we have now become a UK distributor for the Mace range of open channel area velocity flow meters and environmental monitoring equipment.

Mace is a company based in Australia who specialise in the design of environmental monitoring equipment for the wastewater, industrial and agricultural markets. The unique XCI system manufactured by Mace allows the user a large amount of flexibility and ensures that systems can be easily expanded to suit individual site requirements.

Current models offered from the Mace range are : FloPro XCi, Suitable for waste water, storm water and industrial flows. AgriFlo XCi , Suitable for agricultural and waste water flows. Hydro Mace XCi, for Environmental Monitoring and HvFlo XCI, a portable flow meter for logging open channel and waste water.

The FloPro XCi device integrates flow measurement and water quality monitoring sensors for vital mining, municipal and industrial equipment and assets. Whether you need to measure flow as well as conductivity, pH and rainfall, or utilize a downward looking ultrasonic depth sensor to measure pond levels, the FloPro is fully expandable for your needs. FloPro is easily interfaced to SCADA/telemetry systems allowing for remote data access.

The AgriFlo XCi device monitors vital farm equipment and on-farm sensors. Use the AgriFlo XCi to monitor inputs as diverse as irrigation flows, farm wastewater flows, water quality, dam levels, soil moisture, and pump and engine management systems. AgriFlo XCi is easy to install, easy to use and virtually maintenance free. Utilizing state of the art MACE Doppler ultrasonic velocity sensors, AgriFlo has no moving parts and provides minimal obstruction to the flow. MACE Doppler ultrasonic velocity sensors excel in trash-laden water and animal waste, which means that the meter stays in service longer without time-consuming repairs.

The HydroMace XCi can be used to monitor just about any environmental sensor. Use the versatility of HydroMace XCi to monitor inputs as diverse as: Flumes & weirs, water quality sensors & rainfall gauges, drinking water flows (leak detection) and weather stations. The HydroMace XCi is built to withstand the harshest of environments. Furthermore, with the license-free point ‘n’ click FloCom+ configuration software, no proprietary coding knowledge is required to get the HydroMace XCi going in rapid time.

HVFlo XCi utilises doppler ultrasonic velocity sensors utilizing the MACE Advanced Signal Processing (MASP) technology. This technology allows the sensor to “see” across the entire stream profile, providing a  true average velocity. MASP technology allows HVFlo XCi to achieve superior results from a very wide range of flow conditions. The technologyensures that even during full pipe, surcharge, or reverse flow conditions, HVFlo XCi will provide accurate, repeatable results every time. The HVFlo XCi also offer the option to add a WebComm card to give remote access to your data via GSM/3G cell networks. WebComm can also be configured to provide alarms to an unlimited number of personnel within an organisation.

Each model comes supplied with available slots for up to 5 additional inputs card. Each slot can house a single card, which can serve different purposes depending on the user’s requirements. The different cards available include the Doppler Card – for Doppler ultrasonic sensors, the I/O Card which offers inputs and outputs for 4-20ma, digital and voltage signals, the Pulse I/O Card which provides power (+5 and 12vdc) and a single pulsing flow sensor, the SDI-12 Master Card which accepts SDI-12 sensors for logging, the FloSi Card which provides an SDI-12 or Modbus output interface and the WebComm Card which enables the ability for data collection and remote configuration

This allows you to utilise the multiple cards to meet your needs. For example if you are looking to economically measure three open channel flow applications on a single site you can select three Doppler Cards, and purchase three sensors. All the data will then be collected by the device. If you then wanted to integrate this into a local SCADA system you can select the I/O card to provide 4-20ma or pulse outputs.

The webComm card is a GSM / 3G Modem which allows the user to store and access data remotely in the cloud with access via an online web portal. The data is pushed from the XCi device and is collected on the Mace data server where the user can retrieve their flow data. This data service is offered free of charge with all WebComm cards. A SIM card can be provided or you can fit your own.
