AMR, AMI and Metering CASE STUDIES

  1. 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.

  2. Advanced Metering Analytics And Hi-Res Ultrasonic Meters Create A Winning Combination
    2/9/2015

    When Waterworks District 3 of Beauregard Parish, La., began to research new water meters to replace its aging system, it didn’t take long to decide that the BEACON AMA managed solution was the right fit.

  3. 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.

  4. City Upgrades AMI System For Boost
    9/16/2015

    The city of Yakima services approximately 19,000 accounts within 27 square miles in the Yakima Valley. Frequent droughts, above average water loss and inaccurate meters prompted the city to search for a vendor who could provide a turnkey solution complete with a quality product line. The selected vendor also needed to have an endpoint that could withstand the extreme conditions experienced inside their meter pits including high humidity and varying temperatures.

  5. Northshore Utility District Boosts Reading Efficiency By More Than 900 Percent, While Improving Customer Service
    9/19/2013

    When Northshore Utility District began searching for a new meter reading solution in 2006, achieving a strong return on investment was a critical factor in its selection process.

  6. E-Coder® And R900® RF Help Data Go Deeper In Ventura County
    8/21/2015

    The majority of the water in the city of Simi Valley, California, is provided by Ventura County Waterworks District 8, serving approximately 26,000 metered connections — 22,000 of which are now read by Neptune’s R900® System.

  7. Los Angeles Department Of Water And Power Uses GIS To Improve Water Incident Management
    12/3/2015

    While utilities use sophisticated systems to supply clean water as well as collect and treat wastewater, the effort to manage incidents and outages leaves room for improvement. Water utilities often rely on manual processes to handle customer reports of leaks, loss-of-service or quality issues.

  8. 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.

  9. The Village Of Frankfort Awarded For Operational Efficiencies Achieved Through The Mi.Net™ System And Meter Replacement
    12/20/2012

    Most recently, Frankfort Village officials decided to replace its water and electric meters and implement an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network to increase the operational efficiencies of its water and electric infrastructure in ways that would help improve employee safety, water and energy conservation and customer service while also reducing operational costs.

  10. Ultrasonic Metering For Small Water Meter Applications
    9/19/2013

    For many years, ultrasonic metering has been utilized for large scale liquid and gas measurement. However, it is a relatively new technology for small meter applications — particularly those designed for potable water.
