Sub-metering
Vipac supplies and supports a range of equipment for sub-metering of gas usage, and has an experienced installation team.

Remote Data Collection (telemetry)
Vipac has installed hundreds of telemetry installations around Australia, providing remote access  to measurement installations.  Your data can be uploaded wirelessly into our CMRS website, providing secure, simple access to current and historical energy usage.

Proven Excellence in Metering Data Collection
Vipac monitors Flow Computers on behalf of gas distribution companies and gas retail businesses throughout Australia, utilising a combination of meter readers and telemetry. Flow Computers are data loggers that record and store gas flow readings and correct for pressure, temperature and supercompressibility.

The Flow Profile capability provides the means for validation of load profiles for contract clients, assisting in energy forecasting, billing and energy provision contract negotiation.

Vipac can service all Flow Computers used in the Victorian Gas Industry, and we also supply our own Flow Computer and Data Logger products.

Gas Usage Website (CMRS)
Vipac’s CMRS system provides all commercial gas users that have an Interval meter installed at their premises with access to their current and historical gas usage information.  Contact us for details.  The system includes gas volumes, temperature, pressure and estimated GJ energy consumption.  Scheduled reports are available.
