Measurement technology open day

Published:  11 August, 2009

On Thursday 11th June 2009 BEKO held a Measurement Technology Open Day.

The venue was the impressive New Guesten Hall at Avoncroft Building Museum, very near to BEKO UK offices. This venue was chosen partly because of it's location, but also because of it"s unique construction: The roof dates from 1330, and is mounted onto a modern lower structure giving a perfect blend of traditional and modern- which was one of the themes of the day. BEKO says it is a company combining traditional values with a dynamic, forward looking approach to business.

Rainer Stuetzel, Beko International marketing manager started the event by outlining BEKO’s history from in a lock-up garage in Duesseldorf to an independent worldwide leader in air treatment with fifteen subsidiaries and three manufacturing companies. Rainer told how BEKO has opened two new manufacturing sites within the last year, and how the HQ in Germany is currently undergoing a major expansion.

Following this summary Roland Dunker spoke about Flowmeters and Dewpoint meters, explaining how BEKO make it easy for customers to find out the quality and consumption of their compressed air with BEKO’s simple, accurate measuring solutions.

UK sales manager Kevin Morris then gave a concise explanation of the company’s leak monitoring technology. Leak Detector offers a simple and inexpensive way of reducing air loss in compressed air systems-

after all, up to 1/3 of all compressed air just goes to waste. Morris also showed how leak surveys fit hand in hand with flow monitoring to create an ongoing virtuous circle of improving energy efficiency.

Dunker then highlighted BEKOKAT and METPOINT, another two products that compliment each other. BEKOKAT provides true oil-free air regardless of compressor type or ambient conditions. METPOINT is able to verify the resulting Air oil content right down to ISO class zero quality and gives a clear and constant indication of which class is being achieved.  The combination of these two products gives air users with critical applications real peace of mind thanks to a built-in alarm contact.

After Dunker had finished, the delegates were able to see the new products first hand during an hour long demonstration session. During this time the BEKO team was on hand to answer any questions and to show the products in use. There were four separate demonstration stations which allowed everyone a chance to see and feel how BEKO has changed and grown in recent years.
