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. 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. 

  5. 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.

  6. Combating I&I With Sensor Technology
    10/21/2015

    Hampton Roads Sanitation District is using flow monitoring to help get inflow and infiltration (I&I) out of the sewers. Learn why this method will save the municipality millions versus alternative approaches.

  7. Flow Meters: Long-Term Energy Savings, Cost Efficiency, And Low Maintenance
    10/21/2015

    Endress is very well known for instrumentation in several different markets such as chemical, food and beverage, mining, life sciences, and oil and gas, but they are also in the water and wastewater market. Water is a resource that we all need, and it’s very important that we monitor this resource, especially with some of the drought conditions seen in the news today.

  8. 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.

  9. Diagnosing And Fixing Flow Measurement Problems
    12/2/2014

    Utility personnel and engineers want to know more — now more than ever, due largely to drought and water scarcity concerns, according to Greg Webster of McCrometer.

  10. Ultrasonic Flowmeters Drive Portability Trend
    12/1/2014

    Flowmeter portability is a growing trend as improved flow measurement accuracy and longer battery life allow operators to monitor flow without large capital investment.
