New water technology list acknowledges performance of ABB electromagnetic flowmeters

ABB Limited (Group Headquarters) : 03 December, 2003  (Technical Article)
Electromagnetic flowmetering equipment from ABB Limited has been included in a new list of water technology aimed at promoting better control of water quality and consumption throughout industry. Four flowmeter models have been added to the Water Technology List under the category of 'meters and monitoring equipment'.
The flowmeters added to the list are the AquaProbe, available in battery and mains powered versions, and the MagMaster and MagMaster LoFlo. All are manufactured by ABB in the UK and use the latest technology to enable accurate measurement across a wide range of flows, making them ideal for water metering applications.

The Water Technology List is part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme, which allows businesses to write off, in the first year, 100% of the money they invest in plant and machinery against their income and corporation tax. The Water Technology List has been developed by Defra and the Inland Revenue in partnership with EnviroWise. It is aimed at helping businesses save money in the short and long term by encouraging them to invest in technologies and products that reduce water use and improve water quality.

Water savings are a key area for all businesses. According to EnviroWise, manufacturing companies can save between 30 and 50% of their water and wastewater costs through inexpensive changes to their working practices.

Martin Gibson, Director of EnviroWise, says: 'The Water Technology List is making it easy for businesses to make important decisions to improve their water use and water quality and save money at the same time. Businesses will benefit in the long term through reduced water costs and improved water efficiency by claiming an Enhanced Capital Allowance.'

'ABB is one of the product and technology manufacturers leading the industry forward. One of the objectives of offering the ECA is to promote innovation and to encourage companies such as ABB to come up with new technologies for improving both water usage and quality.'

Says Harry Lawrence, Flow Product Manager, ABB Limited: 'ABB is committed to helping its customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact throughout their operations. The addition of our electromagnetic flowmeters to the Water Technology List provides us with an invaluable opportunity for promoting our corporate environmental message both to the water industry and also to major water users throughout other industries.'

The Water Technology List currently has five qualifying technologies, which will be reviewed on an annual basis and expanded in future years, namely:

Flow controllers
Meters and monitoring equipment
Leakage detection equipment
Efficient toilets
Efficient taps
