This demonstrates that the new members of the Qalcosonic W1 product family meters have met the highest metrological standards. Therefore, they are ready for the commercial water metering across the EU. The certificate was issued by the registered body of the Thermal Equipment Research and Testing Laboratory of the Lithuanian Energy Institute and will be valid for 10 years.
"This certificate confirms that we have completed the development phase of the Qalcosonic W1 sizes DN25 and DN32. Consequently, we are about to start a new one, the preparation for its mass production. We are currently adjusting all necessary technological equipment, which, as planned, will start operating in our manufacturing facility, located at the plant in Kaunas FEZ, in December 2020,” says Virgilijus Pamakštis, the Director of the Innovation and Technology Department at Axioma Metering.
“We have already provided the first samples of DN25 and DN32 to our multiple partners worldwide, and they have started the first tests”, says Rytis Kepalas, the Head of Water Meter Sales Team at Axioma Metering.
The development phase of the larger-sized Qalcosonic W1 meters started one year ago, and today Axioma Metering began accepting their first commercial orders for this particular product type. “We are confident that the expansion of this product line will help us to achieve our strategic goal to become a global leader in the market of smart water and heat meters. We are consistently working to bring new, high quality and competitive products to the market, and we will not limit ourselves to a few new diameters. At the beginning of 2021, we will be ready with Qalcosonic W1 meters in extra larger sizes, which will be even larger. Therefore, we will fulfill the market needs worldwide,” says Rytis Kepalas.
Water and heat devices are the objects of legal metrology. This means that they can enter the market only in accordance with the procedure established by the Law on Metrology. The MID is the EU directive, which defines the essential requirements for metrological objects used for commercial purposes in 2006. Its main aim is to harmonize these provisions at the European level and to ensure that consumers receive only the highest quality products that are safe. Prior to the MID approval, each EU country applied its own national requirements.
