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 (now Dresser Actaris Gas) Metering Solutions, providing Dresser Actaris Gas (previously 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.
To extend product life cycle, Stream offer gas meter a full repair, refurbishment and calibration service at our facility in Oldham.
From major partnership contracts to one off customer requirements Stream offer gas meter services to all types of gas meters and manufacturers equipment. From our facility in Oldham, we can support all Dresser Actaris Gas (previously Itron) gas meter products and can offer complete repair, refurbishment, flow calibration and pressure testing. Repairs to other manufacturers flow metering systems is possible where spares parts and tooling is available.
Stream’s Return to Factory Flow meter calibration services ensure the highest level of calibration accuracy and test rig traceability is achieved. With their wide range of test fluid mediums including Water, Air and Oil, Stream provide one of the largest calibration offerings in the UK.
Our standard service checks the flow meter accuracy at two flow points, the test at each flow point is repeated at least twice to ensure repeatability of the flowmeter (the single most important performance factor of the instrument).
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 0.5 to 4,000 m³/hour.
Our service covers any manufacturers flow meter – whether for process or energy measurement, covering any technology, including Positive Displacement, Turbine, Electromagnetic, Coriolis, Vortex or Swirl – and offering a service for Industrial Process, Water, Heat, Gas, Steam, Compressed Air, Oil and LPG meters.
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.
