Measuring systems: from design to maintenance

<p>Measuring systems: from design to maintenance</p>

Innovative certification of complex measuring systems

NMi develops test procedures for innovative measurement systems in order to deliver proof of conformity for certification.

Knowledge and experience with respect to legislation and interpretation of standards

Based on its long experience in certifying flow meters and flow measuring systems, NMi is an authority when it comes to statutory requirements and standards.

Independent view on your specifications

As an independent party, NMi can take a neutral stance when preparing specifications and evaluating your specifications.

Environmental requirements aimed at minimising emissions and pollutants are becoming more stringent. If you cause emissions, you must apply for a tradable emission permit (emission allowance). The requirements are stipulated in European Directive 2003/87/EC.

Calculating emissions

Calculating emissions, including the maximum measurement uncertainty, is an important part of the permit application. The calculation is based on all the products that enter and leave again. A variety of measurements are often part of your routine process operation that can serve as a basis for the emission calculation. As an independent party, NMi uses available documents, calibration certificates and even a site visit to prepare the calculations. This considerably speeds up the permit application.

Granting the permit

In the Netherlands, the emission allowance permit is issued by the Netherlands Emissions Authority (Nederlandse Emissieautoriteit – NEa). Thanks to our knowledge of the standard relating to making the emissions measurable, we are familiar with the requirements to be met. This guarantees a rapid process and a prompt permit. We have already performed the calculations and prepared an application for several parties.
