To answer these questions, participants in an EMPIR-funded research project, MetroWaMet, have built experimental facilities and developed protocols to test domestic water meters under fluctuating flows, low flows and with varying water qualities. Commercially-available domestic meter types have been included in the test programme and the results are being used to create a ‘virtual flow meter’ model.
In this webinar, presented by Sarah Jones from TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, attendees will hear about the progress of the collaborative MetroWaMet project since the previous webinar in 2020

Sarah Jones has worked as a Flow Measurement Engineer at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory for the last two years. She chairs ISO/TC 30/SC 7 responsible for ISO 4064 and is co-convenor of OIML/TC 8/SC 5 responsible for R 49, which are the standards relating to water meters. She has spent most of her career working in the UK and international water industry on various aspects of pumped and gravity systems for raw, potable and waste water, including secondments into one of Anglian Water’s leakage teams and Thames Water’s waste water team.
