Do you know, our electrodes are at the heart of our Hydrastep system?

As well as being essential to the measurement of water and steam, they are also incredibly durable and reliable.

This is due to their specific design, as each electrode is handcrafted and tested to withstand both extreme pressures and temperatures. As a result they can endure harsh conditions for many years (even decades), ensuring that your plant will continue to operate safely and consistently.

We are delighted to announce that we have secured an instrumentation order for the newbuild Joint Support Ship being built by Seaspan shipyard for the Royal Canadian Navy.

This is the first of two such vessels being constructed for the Royal Canadian Navy, the delivery of the first is scheduled for 2023.

With a length of 173.7 metres and a breadth of 24 metres, this multi-purpose Naval Vessel will be the largest ever constructed in Canada, and has a significant instrumentation requirement with more than 140 level & pressure transmitters, more than 30 flood detection switches, and associated termination modules. We are also expecting a future order for all tank level alarm switches.

A major tire manufacturer in the Southeastern United States seeking to improve their steam curing process. Installing the VorCone steam quality meter along with temperature and pressure sensors has led to this facility significantly reducing product losses due to the presence of condensate in their steam curing process. Additionally, this facility received corporate recognition for achieving a reduction in their overall energy costs.

Learn about:

  • The different types of steam
  • Steam quality: why it’s important, and how to measure it
  • Economic and safety considerations of steam quality
  • Common steam flow metering issues
  • Flowmeter technologies for steam metering
  • The advantages and disadvantages of different flowmeter technologies for steam applications
  • Steam quality is a measure of the wetness of steam. Typically, steam quality is expressed as a percentage (X), where the mass of steam is divided by the sum of the mass of steam and water

In-Situ Gas Changes with Gas-SelectX®

We're changing the game for so many customers who deal with the consistent challenges of changing gas in the pipe. Find out how.

Model FT1 now has CAL-VCalibration Validation!

CAL-V™ can be initiated using the front panel of the flow meter electronics, the free FT1 View™ software tool, or via Modbus!

Use CAL-V™ on Model FT1 to:

  • Test the functionality of the sensor and its associated signal processing circuitry
  • Check for build-up on sensor that could affect calibration
  • Ensure FT1 retains its original NIST-traceable calibration


The test takes 3 minutes to complete and provides a pass/fail result. If using the FT1 View™ software to perform the test, the user has the option to print a CAL-V™ certificate upon completion of the test for record keeping!

Other great FT1 features:

  • Min/Max velocity range: 15-25,000 SFPM
  • Insertion and inline styles
  • Equipped with Gas-SelectX® field-selectable gas menu options
  • Advanced DDC-Sensor™ technology

D-ISO Success in it’s first installment.
Dwr Cymru Welsh Water have multiple drinking water plants and had an issue with ageing turbidity monitors at one of its drinking water sites. After over 20 years continuous service the existing turbidity monitors were breaking down and
replacement parts were not available. Partech were approached to provide an alternative to potentially replace the current 15 units. The potential replacement sensor had to not only match but exceed the current measurement accuracy to ensure compliance with strict water quality standards. Another requirement was to move away from wet calibration standards and simplify the calibration process as a whole.
The Partech TurbiTechw² D-ISO and 7300w² control monitor were installed on a 3 month trial with Partech providing on site guidance and support in the initial phase. After 3 months the data from the D-ISO was assessed and found to meet the trial criteria. Data was stored using the 7300w²’ monitors onboard logging facility. The engineers reported increased accuracy of results along with a greater simplicity of calibration using the D-ISO’s dry calibration reference cell. Following the successful trial a second unit is being installed with a longer term project in place to gradually replace the aging existing units.
Building on the success of the TurbiTechw² LR sensor and by continually striving to improve and expand our product range Partech is proud to introduce the new TurbiTechw² D-ISO sensor. The D-ISO is a natural evolution in terms of development and offers our customers an improved user experience in all areas.

Palmer Wahl are proud to make the first introduction of their new Differential Pressure Recorder, widely used among the gas industries.

Housed in a rugged 12 inch cast aluminum case with corrosion prevention and powder coatings, these recorders are long-lasting and designed to take a beating.  Differential pressure models are available in ranges of 20 to 400 inches of water, with pipestand mount configurations only.

Delta Controls Ltd.are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement with Emerson, to purchase its Mobrey line of measurement products manufactured in Slough, UK.

As an original Bestobell-Mobrey company, Bestobell-Aquatronix is looking forward to showcasing Delta-Mobrey products in Canada.

VorTek Instruments’ VorCone™ flow meters utilize two different flow meter technologies in combination; vortex and differential pressure. The design has blended the two separate flow metering principles into one hybrid system where the two meters complement each other's performance. This combination allows for the prediction of the fluid density, volumetric flow rate and mass flow rate without any fluid density information being required from an external source. In saturated steam service, the meter produces a reliable steam quality (dryness) measurement and steam mass flow rate reading.
