Axioma Metering manufactures heating and cooling meters Qalcosonic E1, which have been granted a German Cooling Approval certificate. The certificate is issued by the German National Metrology Bureau PTB, which is known and appreciated throughout Europe. From now on, all European residents may use the Qalcosonic E1 meter produced by Axioma Metering not only for heat but also cooling energy accounting.
“Unlike heat, cooling accounting in the European Union is not uniformly regulated by the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID); hence, its requirements are set by national documents. This certificate is appreciated and acknowledged in many EU countries,” said Mantvydas Vaičius, head of commerce department at Axioma Metering.
The company submitted an application for this certificate about half a year ago, along with the samples of the meter Qalcosonic E1. The PTB Laboratory examined the documentation provided and verified how these meters work in real terms. Besides, an accelerated life-cycle test was carried out, which demonstrated how the company’s meters operate in 10 years.
Axioma Metering has been manufacturing Qalcosonic E1 meters since 2011. Around 50,000 meters are produced a year. The majority of the meters are exported to the Scandinavian countries, Germany and Italy. “Axioma Metering” team is planning that this certificate will help to increase the export of Qalcosonic E1 by 30-40 per cent.
