Axioma Metering manufactures Qalcosonic E1 heating and cooling meters. Its cooling meters have been granted a cooling approval certificate by the German national metrology institute PTB, which means that from now on, all European residents may use Axioma’s meters not only for heating but also for cooling energy accounting.
“Unlike heat, cooling accounting in the European Union is not uniformly regulated by the Measuring Instruments Directive; hence, its requirements are set by national documents,” says Mantvydas Vaičius, Head of the Commerce Department at Axioma Metering. “This certificate is appreciated and acknowledged in many EU countries.”
The company submitted its application, including samples of the meters, in mid-2018. PTB’s examination included an accelerated life cycle test, demonstrating how the meters operate across 10 years.
Axioma Metering has been manufacturing Qalcosonic E1 meters since 2011, and now produces around 50,000 per year. The majority are exported to the Scandinavian countries, Germany and Italy. Axioma expects that this certification will help increase exports by 30 to 40 per cent.
