Water Instrumentation White Papers & Case Studies,

  1. Precise Biogas Flow Measurement
    4/25/2016

    As oil prices remain high, we are in the midst of a nation-wide initiative to seek renewable sources of energy to increase energy efficiency and energy security. Renewable energy accounted for 13.2% of the domestically produced electricity in 2012. Among the sources of renewable energy is the production of biogas from landfill gas (LFG) or digester gas.

    3/7/2016

    Advancements targeting the challenges related to a flooded meter pit environ­ment have occurred slowly over the years, with limited success.

  3. Local Support Saves Time And Money
    2/1/2016

    At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

  4. Rural Water Plant Finds Leak With Clamp-On Flowmeter
    1/31/2016

    A rural water treatment plant in the Southwestern U.S. treats, stores, and distributes 325,00 gallons per day of water to the village it serves. The village consumes an average of 125,000 gallons a day and can store up to 1 million gallons. Unfortunately, the treatment plant was also losing 210,000 gallons a day due to an unknown leak.

  5. Engineers Without Borders Uses Siemens Clamp-On Flow Meter To Restore Water Supply In Les Anglais, Haiti
    12/2/2015

    The Siemens Channel Partner in Oregon, has a customer from an engineering firm who also volunteers for Engineers Without Borders (EWB). The Portland chapter of EWB took on a project in Les Anglais, Haiti, to restore their drinking water supply system that had been disrupted in the Fall of 2008.

  6. 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.

  7. Louisiana Wastewater Treatment Facility Benefits From Siemens Product Support
    11/26/2015

    A municipal wastewater treatment facility located in Louisiana was having problems with a clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter that was supplied by a Siemens competitor.

  8. Bury A SITRANS MAG Sensor? Sure!
    11/25/2015

    A large east coast water supplier faced a number of challenges with one of its pumping stations. It was built more than 35 years ago on a 25’ earth mound (“ant hill”) to protect it from flooding, the pumping station was becoming very expensive and inefficient to operate.

  9. An Energy System For Power Generation Relies On Quality Monitoring Instruments From Siemens
    11/23/2015

    A U.S. company develops energy technologies that are environmentally sustainable and provides their customers with the ability to use their energy sources in a more practical and cost-effective manner.

  10. Meter Technology Used For Verification
    11/13/2015

    The core of Coriolis mass flowmeters are oscillating tubes. As soon as mass is flowing through them, a Coriolis force is affecting the oscillation, creating a phase shift.
