MCCROMETER FEATURED ARTICLES

  • In May of 2021, the Senate passed the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021 (DWWI Act). They have allocated $250 million of grant money, broken down into $50 million segments each year starting in 2022 and ending in 2026. Due to this bipartisan legislation, small public water systems should consider taking advantage of this unique funding opportunity. Keep reading to see if you may qualify.

  • Every water system needs data to make decisions about day-to-day operations and long-term strategic planning. Unfortunately — whether due to cost or practical limitations — not every one of them has access to all the data they would like to make the most productive decisions. Here are several ways that even smaller utilities can implement affordable technologies to improve visibility into what’s happening in key areas of their systems.

  • Whether decision-makers consider it ultimately attainable or not, there is something positive to be said about striving toward ‘net zero leakage’ in water distribution systems saddled with high non-revenue-water (NRW) losses. The key is taking affordable steps — like those described below — toward identifying and mitigating the most egregious water loss locations in a distribution system, based on readily accessible data.

  • Sometimes, a meter installation isn’t as straightforward as we’d like it to be. Many flow monitoring projects can start out simple and evolve to be very complex, especially when the meter is meant to solve a challenging measurement issue. To prevent potentially time-consuming and frustrating delays and issues, McCrometer offers a startup service. So, what does this service include, and should you book this service for your next meter project?

  • Electromagnetic (mag) meters are a desirable metering choice for their incredible accuracy and low to no maintenance required over its lifespan. Operating with no moving parts, the appeal is high – however, the ability to troubleshoot in-field is challenging and time-consuming. Luckily, there’s a major contributing factor in installing an effective mag meter that can set you (and your operations) up for success: grounding.

  • Oftentimes in municipal flow applications utilities and districts opt for a propeller meter, an electromagnetic (mag) meter, or another type of “no moving parts” meter like an ultrasonic device. However, there are instances in which a differential pressure (DP) meter is a more attractive option, and specifically the VM V-Cone, McCrometer’s DP meter designed for a wide variety of municipal flow applications.

  • Those familiar with propeller flow meters are usually familiar with their common counterparts, flow straighteners and vanes. Implemented to reduce swirl in shorter straight-run applications, straighteners are a complementary instrument for agriculture, irrigation, and municipal flow measurement applications.

  • The V-Cone® is widely known for its success as a metering solution in the oil and gas industry, but it’s also a burgeoning solution for many industrial applications, including district steam. The V-Cone’s tolerance for a range of flow conditions and media, as well as available customization, make it a viable, lasting solution for many unique new and retrofit steam applications.

  • McCrometer, Inc., a globally recognized flow meter manufacturer, recently announced NSF-61 and NSF-372 certification of the Ultra Mag® and Dura Mag® electromagnetic (mag) flow meters. NSF-61 is an international standard for drinking water and certifies that the Ultra Mag and Dura Mag, as well as all components and materials, meet health and safety requirements for the municipal water industry.

  • In commercial brewing — as with other food, chemical, or industrial processes — control over steam heating can have significant influence on process costs and consistent quality in the final product. But its measurement and control can also be impacted by unique circumstances of those applications. Here is how changing just one aspect of steam measurement brought economy and consistency to multiple aspects of a brewer’s overall process.

  • Until recently, it was difficult to find an optimal meter for the harsh conditions that can occur during water transfer in oil and gas applications. The good news is that an effective, accurate, and rugged meter is emerging as an alternative.

  • McCrometer’s Dura Mag flow meter has gained a reputation as a robust tool for flow measurement within irrigation and other markets because of its accuracy and ruggedness while being an economical solution. Several technology limitations prevented the Dura Mag from widespread adoption in municipal water applications, but those issues are about to be addressed as McCrometer is preparing to launch the Dura Mag with expanded capabilities this year, enabling water utilities to take advantage of its benefits.

  • McCrometer, Inc., a globally recognized flow meter manufacturer, recently announced the launch of their redesigned telemetry offering for their electromagnetic (mag) product line of flow meters.

  • Electromagnetic meters have increasingly become the instrument of choice for municipal utility and industrial water measurement applications where highly accurate flow measurement is critical. Also known as mag meters, these devices contain no moving parts, so they are both reliable and virtually maintenance-free. However, if a mag meter’s liner is torn or delaminates, it can lead to serious problems and major expenses.

This advanced differential pressure-type (DP) flow meter offers high accuracy and repeatability, flexible installation, and little to no maintenance for the widest range of fluids.

The FPI Mag™ (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter is the only hot tap full profile insertion flow meter available on the market. The FPI Mag installs without service interruption making it ideal for retrofits, upgrades and maintenance projects and sites never before metered. The hot tap installation significantly reduces installation time eliminating the need to de-water lines or cut pipe.

Unlike traditional propeller meters, the Mc Propeller uses a flexible drive-train and sealed ball bearings. Its unique design makes it easy to service in the field and requires no external power or batteries. The Mc Propeller is designed to comply with AWWA standard No. C704/08. Standard features include an instantaneous flow rate indicator and six-digit totalizer.

The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications. Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.
