DRINKING WATER DISTRIBUTION APPLICATION NOTES
Hydrant Pressure Monitoring Application Note
One of the most popular uses for the Telog Hydrant Pressure Recorders (HPRs) is to monitor and analyze customer pressure complaints. The HPR is ideally suited for this application because it is rugged, highly portable, and can give a complete, time stamped picture of the pressure differential between the customer’s water pressure and the water pressure being delivered by the utility.
Leak Detection Using Conductivity
Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.
How To Read An Encoder
The HR-E LCD encoder has a 9-digit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to show consumption, flow and alarm information. The display automatically toggles between 9-digit and 6-digit consumption, rate of flow and meter model.
Pipe Repair On A Budget
A new pipe-repair solution promises to save time and money, while also being sustainable, long-lasting, fully scalable, and safe for workers.
Water Distribution System Wireless Monitoring Application Note
Providing water distribution monitoring solutions since 1987, Telog continues to offer the industry’s leading remote data acquisition system including the most comprehensive family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors available from any single supplier.
Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.
