Remote Pressure Monitoring System

Remote Pressure Monitoring System

Several years ago, Mueller began a journey to develop a user friendly and cost-effective technology to continuously and remotely monitor pressure at any point within a potable water distribution system. The technology involves threading a sensor onto a corporation valve to transmit pressure readings. The pressure sensor, typically installed one per District Metering Area (DMA), reports at userdefined intervals via cellular service and a Mueller-hosted secure web server. Beginning with pressure monitoring, Mueller has created a communications backbone that utilities can integrate into its monitoring systems or use as a stand-alone monitoring platform.

  • Monitoring ORP In Private Wells To Determine Arsenic
    Monitoring ORP In Private Wells To Determine Arsenic

    Arsenic is one of the most common elements in the earth’s crust and is commonly found in many locations at varying concentrations. The Midwestern United States has locations that are heavily laden with arsenic because of certain geological settings and conditions. This naturally-occurring arsenic can leach into groundwater potentially causing elevated levels of arsenic in drinking water supplies. The primary pathway that exposes arsenic to humans is through drinking water (Thomas et. al., 2008).
