The future of water meter testing

Xylem opens one of the largest testing facilities in Europe

This month, global water technology leader Xylem (NYSE:XYL) will officially open its new testing facility for bulk water meters in Laatzen (near Hannover, Germany). The new facility is a major investment in its metrology branch Sensus and a dedicated commitment to the success of the new ultrasonic bulk water meter, Cordonel.

In this new test bench Cordonel and other bulk water meters can be tested in real installation and extreme environmental conditions, thanks to its so-called U0D0 section (90° bend in front of and behind the meter) and integrated climate chamber. It is one of the very few test benches in Europe that can test water meters up to DN 300. Extensive testing under real installation conditions, high precision components and fully automatically controlled processes ensure constant accuracy in the testing process, therefore Xylem plans to extend the operation to testing meters by other suppliers as well.

The planning and realization of the project was supported by the Xylem Rental Solutions team, who help to solve even the most complex water challenges with their expertise. Furthermore, many Xylem products are installed in the test facility, such as Flygt pumps and Wedeco UV disinfection systems.
