Axioma Metering’s factory of water and heat metering devices is launching the production of another few meters, development of the new generation composite ultrasonic heat and water meters begins. Their development is funded under the EU funds measure Intelektas LT-2, the value of which amounts to 3.4 million euro. Axioma Metering will invest 2.9 million euro of own funds. The total value of the project amounts to 6.3 million euro. This project will continue for three years, and the first products will be released in 2020.
“We create innovative ultrasonic meters, which will operate according to the principle of future technologies. The metering devices will feature the new composite and nanocomposite materials and smart solutions that will meet the needs of the future international market,” said Virgilijus Pamakštis, Head of Innovation and Technical Department.
Fundamental scientific research will be performed in the process of creating these metering devices. The research will be carried out by the scientists from the Kaunas University of Technology. Axioma Metering will implement the applied scientific research and experimental development works in cooperation with the Lithuanian Energy Institute.
In comparison to the existing meters, the high-quality metering devices will be characterised by a lower price and more advanced properties. “The service life of the new meters will be doubled, while the time between the metrology inspections will become twice as long. The new-gen meters will be environmentally-friendly and made of recycled secondary raw materials,” says V. Pamakštis.
The future heat meters will mark the new generation of Axioma Metering heat meters, while the water metering devices will continue the Qalcosonic W1 product line.
