Technical characteristics and calibration capabilities of testing facilities for big water meters in Europe - Establishment of a data base


The purpose of this project is to establish a data base accessible for everyone interested in the characteristics and capabilities of testing facilities for big water meters situated in Europe. The meters to be tested by these facilities are of DN > 200 mm and are foreseen for metering cold and warm water and for heat.

In order to establish this data base (which will be then also maintained by the project holder) the participants of this project and the labs known to them are asked by a questionnaire to return the corresponding data. The testing facilities meant shall be more or less those available for customers and serve the purpose for calibration and verification rather than for scientific research work.

Besides the technical aspects of the testing facilities, the data base shall also give links to the site and staff of the testing facilities.

The database will be available to the flow community by means of a website and/or other means.
