STOREY BUILDING A regional provider of electrical engineering and contracting services to the commercial, industrial, health and educational sectors installed 14 Micronics U1000 Heatmeters in a new seven storey building in Princes Street, Manchester.

Based in Salford, Greater Manchester, WMB Mechanical has been established in the North West since 1982. The units were required as part of a building management scheme.

As the client was sub-letting each fl oor they wanted to monitor energy usage as part of an energy saving scheme and for the purposes of accurate billing. Phil Bluer, a Director of WMB has used Micronics fl owmeters and heatmeters very successfully for a number of years. He said: “WMB has relied on Micronics products for many tasks, both large and small including


SOLUTIONS Staying true to its culture of innovation, Sika has launched Sikalastic-652N, an upgraded version of one of its most popular liquid-applied single-component polyurethane waterproofi ng membranes, Sikalastic-625.

This versatile, durable cold-applied membrane is used up and down the UK in a range of fl at roof applications, from industrial and commercial roofs to balconies and walkways. The new and improved Sikalastic-625N incorporates Sika’s patented i-Cure Technology, an enhanced chemistry that gives the product greater temperature stability, extended shelf life and improved workability.

Thanks to these benefi ts, the waterproofi ng membrane is capable of curing in a wide range of conditions, making it ideal for use in the unpredictable UK climate.


for numerous projects at the University of Manchester and, we therefore, have complete confi dence in recommending the quality and service of their products to our clients. We will continue to count on them for the foreseeable future, particularly as its deployment minimises costs.”

The U1000MKII-HM is a ‘Best Value’ clamp-on, Ultrasonic heat meter alternative to traditional inline energy meters, for energy management and billing applications in domestic and commercial, district or shared heating or cooling systems, because pipes do not need to be breached or disturbed during installation. In addition to the signifi cant installation benefi ts the ultrasonic clamp-on thermal, heat/ energy meter also delivers cost and dry maintenance benefi ts over traditional inline products.

The Micronics U1000 meter is suitable for fl ow metering of hot water, chilled water, potable water and demineralised water, making it very fl exible for use in the energy management or building services

Application is quick, easy, and will not be delayed by adverse weather, which is a huge benefi t for the specifi er, contractor and client.

Gavin White, Marketing and Product Manager at Sika Roofi ng, said: “We’re excited to be able to offer our customers the benefi ts of our exclusive new i-Cure Technology with the launch of Sikalastic-625N. It delivers a whole host of performance enhancements while maintaining the trusted weather resistant waterproofi ng properties of its predecessor.

“Sika has been manufacturing high performance protection and waterproofi ng systems for over 50 years and we’re proud of that expertise. Our aim isn’t just to pioneer new market-leading technologies, but also to continually improve existing

ones – especially those that are already loved by our customers.”

The high quality and durability achieved by this membrane is evidenced by its BBA and ETA Accreditations.

Sikalastic-625N is a direct replacement and upgrade to the existing Sikalastic-625 formulation and will be available in the same colour range and tin sizes. Coverage rates and guarantees – 10, 15 and 20 years – also remain the same.

It uses ultrasound to measure fl ow rate and PT100 temperature sensors to measure fl ow and return temperatures, displaying energy rate and totalised energy with pulse output and communication options, so it can be used as a standalone meter or as an integral part of an aM&T or BEM’s system.
