Dwyer’s Series 490W Wireless Hydronic Differential Pressure Manometer is the most accurate and easy-to-operate manometer on the market. Along with wireless transducers and a mobile device, a single operator using a 490W can monitor and balance a hydronic system in less time and with less manpower than would be possible using a traditional hydronic balancer. In addition, being wireless, the 490W has zero hoses or manifolds – meaning there are no annoying attachments that need to be carried, that can snag onto equipment, or that need to be drained between readings.

Thermal flowmeters use the thermal properties of the fluid to measure the flow of a fluid flowing in a pipe or duct. In a typical thermal flowmeter, a measured amount of heat is applied to the heater of the sensor. Some of this heat is lost to the flowing fluid. As flow increases, more heat is lost. The amount of heat lost is sensed using temperature measurement(s) in the sensor. The transmitter uses the heat input and temperature measurements to determine fluid flow. Most thermal flowmeters are used to measure gas flows. Thermal flowmeters represent 2% of global flowmeter sales. Continue reading “How Thermal Flowmeters Work”
In the ongoing narrative of environmental conservation, few adversaries are as concerning as methane gas emissions from landfills. This potent greenhouse gas poses a substantial threat to both our climate and community health, demanding immediate attention and sustainable solutions.
Landfills contain several different gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) caused by the breakdown of waste, with methane and carbon dioxide making up over 90% of them (health.ny.gov). Once waste breaks down and forms landfill gas and particulates, it can potentially spread to nearby buildings or structures through openings like cracks, windows, or ventilation systems and settle in areas of poor ventilation like basements or crawl spaces (health.ny.gov).
