Danfoss Precision heat metering made simple with new SonoSelect
Precision heat metering made simple with new SonoSelect
SonoSelect 738 x 415 Combining ultrasonic technology with advanced control the new Danfoss SonoSelect heat meter makes precision energy metering easy for properties supplied by a district heat network or communal heating system.
- 12 April 2016 By Danfoss News
As well as delivering reliable and consistent energy data, SonoSelect offers a new level of installation and commissioning simplicity via smartphone using the Danfoss SonoApp. Water and dust protected to IP65 and Class 2 MID approved, the compact SonoSelect can be configured to mount on supply or return pipework into each property. With no in/outlet restrictions, and no moving parts, SonoSelect ensures years of reliable operation, even under harsh ambient temperature conditions.
One of SonoSelect’s exclusive features is the ability to install, configure, commission and access advanced diagnostics using Danfoss’ innovative SonoApp and SonoDongle – a Bluetooth connector that enables secure communication between an authorised smartphone and heat meter. The App can be used for everything from real-time verification of system functioning to rapid location pairing and error handling – all via clear and intuitive menu screens. Different levels of access to the heat meter can also be defined to prevent tampering by unauthorised users. Moving advanced functionality to the SonoApp makes SonoSelect easy to work with and reduces the risk of incorrect settings and time spent on re-installations and call-backs.
In addition, SonoSelect offers state-of-the-art diagnostics – up to now only available in process industry meters. This includes accurate traceability for fast error identification and correction. Diagnostics run from the SonoApp automatically generate detailed information on all key parameters of the heat meter, such as battery life prognosis or air bubble problems. This helps eliminate the cost of unnecessary unit replacement and reduces customer complaints.
Based on leading ultrasonic technology, Danfoss SonoSelect ensures consistent heat metering precision. Flow and energy are measured every 0.5 seconds and temperature every 4 seconds – both class-leading rates. Flow measurement also remains extremely stable, even at low flow rates, and with low-quality water.
Danfoss SonoSelect offers a fully compliant solution to the new Heat Network Regulations, which now require all those who supply and charge for energy consumed via a district heat network or communal heating system to implement metering and billing. Data transfer from individual SonoSelect heat meters for billing purposes can be performed via AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) with no need for an on-site visit. SonoSelect can be upgraded with a communication module at any time.
Bjorn Sejr Nielsen, Marketing Director for Danfoss, comments: “Alongside its advanced functionality and control, SonoSelect has been designed by Danfoss to create measurable value from specification and installation through to improved customer billing accuracy, minimal maintenance and low total cost of ownership. So whether you are an installer, contractor, building owner or landlord in the public or private sector, SonoSelect offers a really simple, reliable and compliant heat metering solution.”
Danfoss - Solutions Ready to Meet Global Water Challenge
Danfoss - Solutions Ready to Meet Global Water Challenge
Lack of water and climate change are among the top 5 global risks, according to the World Economic Forum. However, pioneering solutions that can help meet both challenges are ready to be replicated.
As the world population rises and people pursue higher standards of living, more water is needed in homes and for production of food and products. By 2050, the United Nations projects global water demand to increase by 55%. However, fresh water supplies are limited, and groundwater, which is the source of drinking water for at least half of the global population, is used much faster than it is replenished. In just 10 years, 50% of global population is expected to live in water stressed areas. The increasing demand for water also leads to growing energy consumption, which affects the climate.
Danfoss, a world-leading supplier of technologies for infrastructure, food supply, energy and climate, has solutions which help countries and municipalities worldwide save water and energy within water supply, wastewater treatment and irrigation of farming areas. For example, Danfoss has supported Denmark in becoming one of the pioneering countries in the water and energy field. The country has grown its economy by 80% since 1980, while reducing water consumption by nearly 40%, and keeping energy use at the same level. Structured water management and innovative technologies have contributed to this decoupling of economic growth, water consumption, and energy use.
In municipalities, water and wastewater facilities account for the largest consumption of electricity, typically 25-40% of the local authorities’ total power use. In the Danish city of Aarhus, a local water company has managed to transform a wastewater facility from being just a wastewater plant into also functioning as a combined heat and power plant, delivering an energy surplus. The plant produces 90% more energy than it consumes. The excess heat is led into the district heating system in the city, thereby reducing its carbon footprint. This is feasible thanks to advanced process optimization and by using more than 140 variable speed drives from Danfoss as control handles on almost all rotating equipment. Done optimally, this also creates the maximum amount of sludge and carbon. In a digester, it is transformed into gas used for both electricity and heat production.
Mads Warming, global director of water and wastewater in Danfoss, says: “It’s a ground-breaking innovation case that shows what is possible within advanced process control. As far as we know, no other country has managed to get a water treatment plant to actually produce so much additional energy based on normal household wastewater. Scaled up, it means that the huge energy consumption from water and wastewater facilities could be avoided, turning the single largest electricity consumer in municipalities into an energy-neutral party.”
The vision for Aarhus Water is also to extend energy generation to achieve so much surplus energy from its wastewater treatment plants that it can meet the energy requirement of the city’s total water and wastewater cycles. This goal is expected to be reached in 2016.
The case has attracted attention in cities worldwide. At the beginning of 2015, Aarhus Water signed a cooperation agreement with the water supply company in Chigago (MWRD), which faces the same kind of challenges and pursues the same goals. With the agreement, they have started to share knowledge about water technologies and climate adaption and energy neutrality, in particular.
If the Aarhus case was replicated on a global scale, the energy saved would be equivalent to the current electricity production from all renewable energy sources combined (excl. hydropower).
Globally, focus on the high energy consumption in the water and wastewater cycles is also increasing and local regulations are starting to further the use of energy-efficient solutions. One example is EU’s Ecodesign Directive. In the US, the Department of Energy is also proposing minimum efficiency regulations for clean water pumps. Regulations like these are necessary to speed up the realization of the enormous potential.
When it comes to water supply and irrigation of farming areas, another huge potential is the reduction of water losses in pipework due to leakage. According to the international consultancy firm McKinsey, 167bn USD is wasted every year due to leakage in cities around the world. The United Nations highlights that leakage rates of 50% are not uncommon in urban distribution systems. However, leakages can typically be reduced by 30-40% using technologies like variable speed drives and sensors, which control the pressure in the pipes to avoid water flooding out of holes. At the same time, the drives typically save 20-50% energy.
Mads Warming says: “The global water and climate challenges are a difficult code to crack, but the solutions that can meet them are ready and we also see that focus on leakage reduction and energy efficiency is increasing. Last year, we experienced double-digit growth in our water and wastewater business, and the positive trend continues.”
Besides saving water and energy in countries and municipalities, Danfoss is also helping produce drinking water in remote locations like islands, drilling platforms, and cruise ships. Here, Danfoss takes part in turning seawater efficiently into drinking water using advanced high pressure pumps and energy recovery devices for desalination systems. The Danfoss solutions save up to 50% energy, which is important for the deployment, because at least 70% of the total costs in desalination systems are related to energy use.
Mads Warming says: “Earlier this year, the World Economic Forum ranked water crisis and failure of climate change adaption among the top 5 global risks and encouraged decision-makers worldwide to take collective action to address them. And there is no reason to wait. Well-proven solutions, which meet the water and climate challenges, are ready and they are paid back fast.”
