Redesigning Sensors & Measuring Technology
February 15, 2011 11:47 am
“We shall be launching a redesigned multipoint flow sensors and a brand new Air Flow measuring Station for the first time in India indigenously developed with lot of thought. These products will be affordable and can help save a lot of energy and initial capital needed to install such products. This is being launched at ACREX 2011”, says Sarfraz Panjwani, Managing Director, A L M Engineering & Instrumentation.
Tell us about the business activities of A L M.
A L M is mainly in the business of sensing, measure and control of Pressure (including differential pressure), Air Velocity & Flow, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Relative Humidity & Temperature, Occupancy (motion) Sensors, liquid flow & level and allied products for conserving energy through Automation for non-hazardous and hazardous areas. These products find application mainly in HVAC, BAS (Building Automation Systems), EMS (Energy Management Systems) for Green Buildings etc.
A L M is mainly into instrumentation products related to sensing, measure and control of pressure. What are the sectors your products are catering for?
As I said earlier, the main sectors are HVAC, BAS, EMS finding applications in Green Buildings, Clean-rooms, Data Centres, Pharmaceutical, Textile, Chemical, Semiconductor, Electronics, Power Plants, Steel Plants, Powder & Bulk Handling etc.
A L M Engineering & Instrumentations has a considerable market share in products for differential pressure and air velocity measuring instruments in the Indian subcontinent. Can you give us an overview of your business sector?
We established A L M in 1996 and have been associated with HVAC turnkey companies ever since those days as we used to supply to them our own brand of Acrylic Manometers at competitive prices. In those days we were among the first to supply these instruments with calibration certification which is mandatory today in Pharma and other industries going for USFDA, MCC, MCA, TGA or energy audits mandated by BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency, Govt of India) or simply applying for LEED Certification by USGBC/IGBC.
We have invested heavily in advanced state of the art calibration systems mainly for Differential Pressure, Air Velocity & Flow and Temperature equipments which are internationally traceable to NIST-USA, NPL-UK and NPL-India. We have recently ordered a Wind Tunnel Capable of Testing and Calibrating Air Velocities from 0.1 m/s up to 50 m/s at an accuracy of 1%.
We have given successful calibration tests on board a new Naval ship where others have backed out and have successfully offered international quality products at highly competitive prices apart from trials, test and calibration on-board a newly manufactured Naval ship ready to sail. We have supplied instruments at various airports including Mumbai airport and major buildings through various HVAC and BAS contractors.
We export these instruments to Middle-East and South Asian nations and the response is tremendous.
We have head strategic tie-ups with most of the major HVAC, Clean room and BAS contractors and equipment manufacturers for supplying the instruments at competitive prices. Competitive pricing and International Quality Service with minimum turnaround have been the keys to our customers’ loyalty. We have a very high reputation with our customers some of whom have been with us since the time we were established in 1995-96.
