BARTINGTON ASSOCIATES Ltd is a small research and development company primarily dedicated to innovation in the field of gas flow measurement. It was formed in 1995 by its commercial director, John Bartington, to promote the TTL Flowmeter, invented by himself and developed in conjunction with The Water Research Centre PLC. This product is the cornerstone of an environmental monitoring and control systems company with considerable experience in landfill gas monitoring schemes.

This site currently features our 2 Gas Flow Meters,
the original Timed Thermal Label (TTL) Flow Meter and the new Flow Oscillator (FLOSC) Flow Meter

The TTL Flowmeter is manufactured under licence to The British Technology Group PLC and an emphasis is maintained on innovative solutions to monitoring problems, patenting where appropriate in association with interested parties.

The business has two principal consultants whose diverse specialisations are complementary to the technical development of products and the challenges of industrial problem solving - both have been very closely associated with development of the flowmeter since its inception in 1993. They are:

Dr. B.J.S.Barnard, who holds a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering (Bristol), a Ph.D. (Cambridge) and a D.I.C. in Public Health Engineering (Imperial College, London). Subsequently he has worked for consulting engineers and held posts at the California Institute of Technology, Cambridge University, Belfast University and the University of Essex. Having published widely, including the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, he is involved in the development of applied statistical computational methods for analysing landfill gas extraction schemes and also the continual development of innovative devices for monitoring gas flow.

Dr. Nigel Brooks, who holds a B.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Electronic Systems (University of Essex). Dr. Brooks is a freelance control systems and software consultant specialising in microprocessor based environmental monitoring and control systems. His expertise has been applied to the development of monitoring and control systems for such diverse customers as the National Gallery in London, The Getty Center in Los Angeles and British Petroleum in Farnborough. System specifications have featured computerised control of gallery lighting and motorised actuator and alarm systems programmed to respond to data from a variety of sensors, such as light level, temperature, oxygen and methane concentration. Dr. Brooks specialises in the complete development of custom hardware and software systems, from initial specification to final commercial design.

Both consultants are company shareholders and their collaboration extends to all aspects of company activity both on and off site.
