District heat

An efficient way to use energy

The expansion of district heating continues apace, and for a good reason: The district heating generated by combined heat and power in cogeneration plants has a high level of efficiency and therefore allows provision of heat and hot water with particularly sparing use of resources.

Digital and continuous measurements

Responsibility for monitoring a district heating network is associated with many challenges. Problems in the network can often only be identified once cost-intensive damage has resulted. An efficient monitoring concept with control system connection can be the solution. The solution from SAE IT-systems gets to the core of these problems: the experienced system supplier has extended its established telecontrol and transmission technology by special measuring components for application in district heating networks. The solution therefore enables continuous digital monitoring of district heating networks and slots from the control centre – with a very good price-performance ratio.

Your practical benefits: insulation measurements in the insulating foam, water ingress measurements for slots and temperature measurement for the water in the flow and return circuits. A particular advantage with regard to the security level is the possibility of being able to separate loops locally or remotely during service operations.

Ideal solution for monitoring: net-line FW-5 with PIT-1 and ISO-1

Decentralised route sections demand a lot from those operating district heating networks. Continuous digital monitoring by the proven telecontrol unit net-line FW-5 with extension boards ISO-1 and PIT-1 enables greater remote control plus better protection for employees. The extension boards perform the necessary monitoring and measuring tasks for this via their sensors: Insulation measurements in the insulating foam, water ingress measurements for shafts and temperature measurement for the water in the flow and return circuits. The net-line FW-5 transmits the measured data securely to the control centre via a standardised IEC 60870-5-101/-104 or Modbus RTU/TCP protocol.

In this way, both process and maintenance-relevant information can be logged automatically and monitored efficiently in the control centre: from isolation and moisture measurements, water ingress detection in the shafts or temperature measurement in flow and return circuits through to logging general process information such as pressures and flow rates, circulation volumes and heat output.
