    Municipality arrives before the water bill to alert customers of unusual spikes in usage.

  3. Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter To Comply With Allocation Quota
    10/30/2014

    Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District (AVWSID) serves rural county residents who live outside the city of Vernal, Utah.

  4. DM Petroleum Operations Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter For Tough U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve Application
    10/15/2014

    New tests recently performed by DM Petroleum Operations Company with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter from McCrometer continue to confirm the flow meter’s accurate performance and reliability on two rugged Texas brine disposal lines supporting the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

  5. Next Generation FPI Mag Flow Meter Helps Provide Clean Water For Seattle
    10/15/2014

    The Cedar Water Treatment Facility (CWTF) serves the residents of the City of Seattle. This state-of-the-art plant was designed and built, and is now operated by CH2M Hill.  Working together, CH2M Hill and McCrometer improved flow measurement at the facility with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter.

  6. Water Surge Prevention: Analysis Of Solutions And Alternatives
    9/18/2014

    Water Surge could cause damage in a water conveyance system, from leaking pipes to serious breakdowns and accidents the consequences of which could lead to heavy financial costs and even loss of life.  There are various solutions that are able to prevent or reduce the damage.  It is important to know the differences between the solutions, and the advantages and disadvantages of each technology, before recommending the most suitable solution for the system.

  7. Advanced Diagnostics of Thermal Mass Flow Meters
    9/9/2014

    Many thermal mass flow meters are of the insertion type. As a starting point, proper insertion depth and straight run per the manufacturer’s recommendations should be adhered to.

  8. City Solves Reliability And Maintenance Problems For WTP Hypo Feeds
    8/13/2014

    A municipal water quality manager reports replacement of sodium hypochlorite (hypo) vacuum feeder units with a more advanced type at one water treatment plant (WTP) has helped allow for continued reliability for chlorination.

  9. Two Phase Flow Considerations For Coriolis Meters
    7/8/2014

    Two phase flow is notoriously problematic for most flow technologies. Read how ABB is tackling the 2-phase flow problem through an entire meter-design approach, which entails a state of the art electronics platform and innovative sensor technology. By Ron DiGiacomo

  10. Advantages Of Thermal Dispersion Switches For Pump Protection
    7/1/2014

    Thermal dispersion switches use similar principles as thermal mass flow meters. Fluid carries heat away from the probe tip reducing the temperature difference between a heated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and a reference RTD.
