After their first successful day trial last week, Tommy and his friends went exploring again this week. This week they were up in Manchester with our Sales Manager, Jeff Cassells, and our Product and Support Manager, Rhys Griffiths.

Tommy was definitely excited to see more of the UK – just look at his face in Rhys’ car!Tommy in Rhys' car

They went to visit a food production factory near Manchester where they make Jam, Honey and other edible yummy’s! The site was interested in measuring the flow in clean water at various points in the factory so that the site had a clear idea of their water usage and where their water was going with an overall aim to reduce the water consumption for the site.

Tommy on his way to site with JeffUpon first consideration, the Engineer Manager for the site was thinking about installing inline magnetic flow meters at numerous key locations, with an estimated installed cost of around £1000 per location.

As this was a clean water application, unfortunately, Daisy the DFM and Freddie the FlowPulse were unsuitable for this application, as they both need particles to be present in the liquid to be able to gauge a reading. However, clean water applications are Tommy’s time to shine! Just look how excited he was waiting for installation.

The installation was on a 3” stainless steel pipe and proved absolutely no problem for Tommy. Just look at the clear readings he was getting!

As there are multiple locations to be monitored it was decided that a portable solution would be a much more cost-effective solution than fixed installations, luckily Tommy’s sister, Poppy the PTFM is just a short journey away from their home back in Long Sault, Canada.

Overall, the visit was a success and the Engineer Manager for the food production site was pleased with Tommy’s results. Another win in the bag for Tommy!
