Why is it important to know the difference between MID and OIML, and track the development of these, when working with flow meters?

Flow meter manufacturers, distributors and end-user are aware of the international guidelines within OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology) and MID (Measuring Instrument Directive). But why are these requirements important for the different flow instruments, and how are the instruments validated and controlled?

Join us for an introduction to OIML and MID in relations to flow measurement in a webinar on the 23rd June at 13.00 CEST to find out.

The webinar is targeted to professionals who work with legal metrology in the areas of liquid and gasses, and want a deeper understanding of the requirements. You will get a walk through of the OIML and MID, and their differences and similarities.

Who should participate?

The webinar is primarily relevant for professionals with little or no prior knowledge of the subject, or for individuals that want to refresh their knowledge.

Why learn from FORCE Technology?

At FORCE Technology, we perform type testing of measuring instrument according to national and international legislation. We keep our knowledge of type testing and measuring instruments at the highest level through participation in leading global organizations and fora within measuring instruments. For instance, we:

  • hold the presidency of CEN/TC176, which prepares the standard EN 1434 for district heating and cooling meters
  • hold the convenor title in WG 11, the working group for utility meters in WELMEC
  • are approved to type test water meters according to OIML R49 (EN 14154) and MID within water, gas and heat meters
  • participate in WELMEC, ISO, OIML and CEN.

And we look forward to sharing our knowledge with you in the webinar.
