AMR, AMI and Metering CASE STUDIES

  1. BEACON AMA Managed Solution Helps Provide Great Water and Great Customer Service
    3/23/2017

    Situated along the Arkansas River and Lake Dardanelle in the heart of the Arkansas River Valley, Russellville, Arkansas is known for having plentiful amounts of high quality, fresh water.

  2. The 450 MHz Band: Security, Reach, And Reliability For Smart Water Metering
    7/14/2015

    Since the early 1980s, the 900 MHz frequency band has been widely used for wireless communications in consumer, business, and municipal applications.

  3. Following Ultrasonic Success, Master Meter Introduces Sonata
    6/17/2016

    A common drive among inventors is the hope of building “a better mouse trap.” There may be products that satisfy their users every day, but are crying out for improvement. One company has found that opportunity in water meters, taking a technology that has worked in the industrial space and offering it for the first time for residential applications.

  4. Secret To Disinfection Monitoring For High Chlorine Residual Wastewater Applications
    8/2/2015

    Some wastewater applications require chlorine residuals greater than can be effectively monitored using DPD due to the oxidation of the Wurster dye to a colorless Imine. Such applications include industrial wastewater processes that inherently have a high chlorine demand thereby requiring a more robust monitoring method.

  5. Achieving Predictable Reliability
    4/19/2017

    Numerous considerations are in play for utility officials when choosing a data communication system. It is a substantial investment, with the eyes of regulatory agencies and customers watching intently.

  6. Encore® 700 Chemical Metering Pumps Provide Precise Coagulant Metering
    8/15/2016

    Water utility operators are increasingly challenged by scrutiny and regulation on disinfection by-product (DBP) levels while trying to manage ever increasing coagulant costs in a tight budget environment.

  7. Chicago Suburb Ensures Highest Water Quality Year-Round, Saves On Labor And Reagents With New Chlorine Analyzers
    5/18/2015

    For the Village of Lombard’s Water Division, consistently delivering high-quality tap water to the community’s nearly 44,000 residents and the businesses serving them was once quite a juggling act: constantly fixing old, temperamental analyzers; feeding reagents into the old analyzers; and staying ahead of callers complaining about “musty” water tastes and odors. Not today.

  8. Township Water Authority Uses Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meters To Avoid Surcharges For Exceeding Peak Limits
    11/27/2015

    A suburban township in the upper Midwest U.S. buys their drinking water from a major municipal water district. The municipality has many customers and has implemented contracts with each of its wholesale customers that limit the peak flows and the time of day in which they may occur. If the wholesale customer exceeds the limit, they are assessed significant surcharges.

  9. Increase Revenue With New Commercial Metering Technology
    4/10/2017

    Revenue for water utilities is circling the drain. Most commercial water meters can stand up to the high water flow of commercial water customers, but these same meters often have a hard time measuring low water flows and retaining accurate meter reads over time and continuous flow conditions. Grocery stores, for example, do not pay for the scant amount of water used for produce misters because it passes through many commercial water meters without detection. These low flows add up to big dollars and are forcing water utilities to take a hard look at the accuracy of their meter fleet.

  10. Using Analytics To Reduce Apparent And Real Water Loss
    11/1/2018

    Water loss control can be challenging, confusing, and time-consuming. Effective water loss control requires a multi-step process, including water audit (also referred to as a water balance), component analysis and intervention.
