"Kharkivstandartmetrologiia” PTC "Prylad” (Device) produces and offers four tariff electronic meter with water temperature control ЛВ-4ТМ.
One of the energy-savings methods is installing of the accounting devices for cold and hot water. Certainly, meters by themselves, does not save anything, they simply count up, how much water is consumed. However the only fact of their installing stimulates the water economy and ordering commodity and money relations in society.
Nowadays the greater part of population, industrial enterprises and organizations of Ukraine already installed the meters for accounting of cold and hot water consumption. However they mainly fix the volume of water passing through them, without registering the temperature. But every city-dweller, whether office worker, or production worker, knows that water in hot pipelines is not always higher than 40ºС.
In accordance with resolutions of Cabinet of ministers of Ukraine № 630 of 21.07.2005 and № 151 of 17.02.2010, service of the centralized hot water-supply must be paid depending on the water temperature coming into apartment. If temperature of hot water :
- is less than 40º С the service for water heating is considered as non supplied, it means you need not pay for it;
-  in limits from 40º С to 44º С - service is paid on 70 % of its value;
-  in limits from 45º С to 49º С – only 90% of service is taken into account;
-  equals 50º С and higher - 100 % of services are taken into account, you need to pay for heating in full amount.
The solution of tasks of brining of payment amount for the used hot water to more real indexes was offered by specialists of production and technical center (PTC) "Prylad” (Device) the branch of SE "Kharkivstandartmetrologiia”. They organized serial production in Kharkiv of one of the first in Ukraine accounting appliance,  controlling not only amount, but also heating quality properties of hot water, - four-tariff electronic water meter ЛВ-4ТМ.
The meter is intended for measuring of consumption of cold drinkable and hot water in the water systems, and also water temperatures measuring in the hot water system with the further correction of volume of hot water depending on its temperature. It can be used for accounting, including commercial, of used hot and cold water in communal, household, and industrial spheres.
The meter, in stated intervals, measures temperature water, passing through it, records data into the electronic memory and on demand of owner informs him, how much and which water was spent. The consumer only has to report the recorded data to communal organization, for calculation of payment.
Thus, now every consumer has a chance not to pay for hot water supply service, which was not supplied, in case of installation in his apartment of ЛВ-4ТМ meter, produced by PTC “Prylad” (Device) of SE "Kharkivstandartmetrologiia”.
