Drinking Water Flow Control and Measurement Application Notes

  1. WATERFLUX 3070 Electromagnetic Water Meter
    9/3/2019

    The WATERFLUX 3070 is a battery powered electromagnetic water meter for use in water abstraction wells, district metering areas (DMA) and custody transfer measurement of potable water (MI-001, OIML R49). With optional pressure and temperature sensors, the meter can also be used for leak detection, quality control and pressure management systems. Unlike mechanical water meters, the WATERFLUX 3070 is maintenance-free and offers a much larger turn down ratio (1000:1). Its measuring tube with a rectangular and reduced cross-section enables a stable measurement even at low flow rates. Due to the optimized flow profile, the WATERFLUX 3070 can be installed virtually anywhere without straight inlet or outlet runs – behind pipe bends, slide valves or a reduction in the pipe. Even burial installation or use in flooded areas is possible.

  2. Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency
    12/15/2017

    One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.

  3. Hydro-Guard® HG-8 Automatic Flushing System
    5/13/2014

    Designed to increase chlorine residual consistency in potable water systems, Mueller® has added the HG-8 model to the expanding line of Hydro-Guard® Automatic Flushing Systems. Hydro-Guard HG-8 is installed below the frost-line, with all components easily accessible from the ground surface in the Mueller Thermal-Coil® Box. Dechlorinated discharge water is directed to the storm water drainage system or local retention pond. In addition, the product is designed to accept a 1-inch meter.

  4. FLUXUS® F401 Portable Flow Meter
    12/9/2014

    The FLUXUS® F401 is FLEXIM's dedicated single channel portable flow meter for applications in the municipial water and wastewater sector offering long term stable and precise bidirectional flow measurements in remote areas outdoor - being ideal for water loss activities prescribed in AWWA M-36.

  5. Temperature Measurement
    12/2/2015

    SITRANS T temperature measurement devices can be connected to many different thermocouples and resistance thermometers, as well as mV and resistance sensors. The SITRANS T temperature transmitters are available as intrinsically safe, explosion proof and non-sparking versions and also as non-hazardous.

  6. Echotel® Non-Contact Ultrasonic Two-Wire Transmitter
    11/15/2013

    Echotel® Model 355 is a loop-powered, non-contact-type ultrasonic transmitter that performs liquid level, volume or open channel flow measurement.

  7. Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
    11/21/2013

    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.

  8. TIDALFLUX 2300 Electromagnetic Flowmeter
    8/26/2019

    The TIDALFLUX 2300 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) with a patented, capacitive level measurement for use in partially filled pipes (up to DN1600 / 64”). The meter is the ideal solution for flow measurement of municipal or industrial wastewater in pressureless transport lines. However, the EMF is also suitable for measurement of effluent brine from dredging, mining or sea/well water injection applications. Unlike open channel systems (Venturi, V-notches etc.) the inline flowmeter is a closed measuring solution without obstructions and with a much better accuracy at lower total costs of ownership.

  9. WATERFLUX 3050 Electromagnetic Flowmeter
    9/3/2019

    The WATERFLUX 3050 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) for basic water applications. It offers cost-effective flow measurement in applications where extremely high accuracy, extensive diagnostics or a wide range of digital communication options are not a priority. Its measuring tube with a rectangular and reduced cross-section enables a stable measurement even at low flow rates. Due to the optimized flow profile, the meter is practically independent of interferences from the installation environment. It can be installed virtually anywhere without straight inlet or outlet runs – behind pipe bends, slide valves or a reduction in the pipe.

  10. OPTIMASS 2400 Coriolis Mass Flowmeter
    9/9/2019

    The OPTIMASS 2400 is the world’s highest capacity Coriolis mass flowmeter for liquids and gases. With its twin or four straight tube design, the Coriolis meter is ideally suited for bunkering operations and custody transfer or fiscal metering in the oil and gas industry. It can also be used for any bulk mass application with many other products such as syrup, molasses or raw chemicals up to 4,600 t/h / 169,000 lb/min. The Coriolis meter features Entrained Gas Management (EGMTM) for liquid applications, maintaining operation over a wide range of gas fractions and complex flow conditions. In this way, the Coriolis device enables continuous and uninterrupted measurement of mass and volume flow, density and temperature – even at difficult process conditions with 2-phase flow.
