Wireless Lift Station Montioring

Application
Lift stations are remote pumping facilities that move wastewater from lower to higher elevation. Monitoring lift stations is important to collection system operators to:

  • Obtain real-time alarms on:
    • Pump failures
    • Wet well overflow
    • Station tamper or vandalism
    • AC power failure
    • Generator power failure
    • Pump temperature and/or vibration exceedance
  • Ensure pumps are functioning properly and sized correctly
  • Optimize energy efficiency
  • Track station flows

Solution
A comprehensive lift station monitoring system provides information to Operations, Maintenance, Collections and Modeling groups within a utility. This includes:

  • Real-time alarming
  • Time-stamp event data
  • Trend data
  • Station flow history
  • Pump cycle data
  • Pumping rate history
  • Pump energy efficiency history
  • Site diagnostics
