Drinking Water Flow Control and Measurement Podcasts

  1. Predictive Maintenance Enabled By Moving Secured Data To The Cloud
    10/24/2017

    Cloud-based monitoring and reporting was all the rage at WEFTEC 2017. Water Talk sat down with Tom Perry, National Product Manager with Veolia to discuss Aquavista, one of the more established technologies for capturing critical data, storing it in the cloud and allowing it to be accessed real time, 24/7 from any smart, web-enabled device.

  2. Flow Measurement Meets Advanced Metering Infrastructure
    11/4/2016

    As utilities update their metering to automatic meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, integration with measurement devices in the distribution system has many benefits. McCrometer’s Dan Hardin recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the flow measurement company’s Smart Output protocol that allows mag meters to connect to a water district’s AMI/AMR system.

  3. Understanding Big Data In The Water Industry
    10/18/2016

    There’s a lot of data floating around the water industry these days. SCADA, flow statistics, online monitoring, DO measurements, air flows, LIMS system data in the Lab, and CMMS data from maintenance software to name but a few.

  4. Eradicating Water Loss Starts With Accurate Flow Measurement
    7/14/2016

    McCrometer’s Full Profile Insertion (FPI) magnetic flow meter inserts into a pipe via a two-inch hot tap, avoiding the need to cut in a full bore mag. As Dan Hardin, Regional Sales Manager for McCrometer, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, it can then connect to any SCADA or radio system the utility might have to measure flow rate to within half a percent accuracy.

  5. Measuring Flow In A Partially-Filled Pipe
    11/30/2015

    Accurate partially-filled pipe measurement is essential when dealing with variable stormwater flows or over-sized community systems built for future growth. In Europe, new stormwater regulations requiring treatment before release are driving a change in measurement that will likely be seen in the U.S. in the not-too-distant future. 

  6. Helping Customers Make Informed Decisions
    11/3/2015

    Badger Meter has 10 metering technologies that exist in the marketplace, so there is a lot of variety in what they do. Brian Kettner, Marketing Manager with Badger Meter, sat down with Water Online Radio to talk about the company, and what they are currently focusing on.

  7. Big Pipe, Big Consequences
    7/9/2015

    When you go really big on pipe, the stakes get higher. Maintenance and energy costs can easily skyrocket, and failure on components such as valves is not an option.

  8. Reduce Maintenance And Extend Longevity With Dual Tubing
    7/7/2015

    Bill McDowell, Sales Engineer with Blue-White Industries, sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the new things happening with their company and their peristaltic pump tubing lines.

  9. Technology Helps Reduce Pressure On Pipes … And Utilities
    7/1/2015

    Water distribution might sound as easy as passing water through pipes, but good municipal managers know better. With failing infrastructure rampant and an increased focus on operational efficiency, water quality, and conservation, distribution systems demand oversight and optimization. 

  10. A New Approach To Accurate Water Flow Management
    6/23/2015

    Accurate flow measurement is often overlooked at a water treatment plant. Many operators look at flow as being what it is. In reality, accurately measuring your plant’s flow(s) is critically important for operational efficiency, from back-washing to chemical dosing and a host of other processes.
