DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT RESOURCES

  • Biopharmaceutical processing is highly precise, and people must rely on various measuring devices to control costs, maintain quality, and avoid accidents. They often use flow meters to accomplish many of those aims. Here are some specific ways professionals working in pharmaceutical processing use these devices, making them so instrumental in successful outcomes.

  • Learn how water and wastewater utilities can use data to find operational efficiencies can both reduce energy costs and reduce carbon emissions.

  • Flow measurement sensors are essential parts of water treatment plants. It’s increasingly common for those products to have Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. One industry report indicated the intelligent flow meter market will reach $3.1 billion in market worth by 2025, representing a 4.4% compound annual growth rate between 2020 and 2025.

  • McCrometer, and channel partner Tecnova, were able to help meet the demands of this water distribution customer by identifying and supplying the necessary meter to satisfy their specific needs.

  • In October 2021, the Birmingham Water Works (BWW) in Birmingham, Alabama, discovered a broken water main in one of its city centers. Read the full case study to see how SEMPER RPM provided critical help.

  • With water supply at a premium and pipelines deteriorating, drinking water utilities must do all they can to preserve their existing assets.

  • The versatile, green-friendly ST75 air/gas flow meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) accurately and reliably measures natural gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), and mixed waste gases in small line sizes to optimize brewing fermentation processes, product quality, and overall plant efficiency.

  • Since the Forsyth County, Georgia, Department of Water and Sewer deployed the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER® Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM) more than a year ago, it has seen numerous advantages. But the AFC SEMPER’s ability to move from one system asset to another, “Lift and Shift,” is among the greatest. Introduced in February 2020 in partnership with Trimble Water, the AFC SEMPER RPM is a wireless, battery-powered pressure recorder that provides utilities with the data needed to monitor water pressure throughout their systems, help identify transients and reduce non-revenue water.

  • In March 2021, the city of Fairfield, California’s Water Division was tasked with commissioning a new 36-inch Cross Town Transmission Line (CTTL). The CTTL will enhance the already robust distribution system and better serve the water needs of the Water Division’s 33,000 customers. This new CTTL, however, will change the dynamics of the city’s current distribution system. To better understand how the new CTTL would affect operations, the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM) was deployed to strategic points throughout the system.

  • Accurate measurement delivered by a range of ABB flowmeters is helping the company behind the world-renowned Macallan whisky brand to maintain its high product quality standards following its move to its new 187.2M USD distillery.   

DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT SOLUTIONS

  • OPTIFLUX 2050 Electromagnetic Flowmeter

    The OPTIFLUX 2050 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) for basic water and wastewater applications. It is suitable for all cost-effective measurements where extremely high accuracy, extensive diagnostics or a wide range of communication options are not a priority. The EMF has a wide diameter range (DN25…1200 / 1…48") and all drinking water approvals. The extra isolation of the electronic device and housing makes this EMF particularly suitable for use in areas with extreme humidity.

  • Reduced Bore Electromagnetic Flowmeter

    Being able to accurately measure both the quantity and rate of water passing through a water distribution system is crucial to gain an informed understanding of overall efficiency. As such, achieving a measurement that is exact as possible can have a significant impact on key areas. This includes supply planning, maintenance, resource deployment, leakage detection and the overall environment.

  • SITRANS FS290 Portable Clamp-On Flow Meter Test Kit

    Each measuring path is formed by two coordinated transducers that transmit ultrasonic signals back and forth through the pipe. Using the transmit and receive time difference between the two signals, caused by the flow in the pipe slowing the transit time against the flow and accelerating the time with the flow, the transmitter calculates the resulting flow measurement.

  • OPTISONIC 6300 Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flowmeter

    The OPTISONIC 6300 is an ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter for permanent mount installation. It is particularly suitable for flow measurement of (non-)conductive liquids at any location where inline measurement is not possible or desirable. The flowmeter consists of a combination of one or two clamp-on sensors and one ultrasonic signal converter. Its robust clamp-on rail is highly flexible and can be very easily attached to virtually any pipe up to DN4000 / 160".

  • AquaTrans™ AT600

    The AquaTrans AT600 liquid flow ultrasonic transmitter combines state-of-the-art flow measurement capability with a low-cost transmitter package that can be installed right at the process measurement point. It’s designed specifically for water and wastewater applications in full pipes. The all-digital AquaTrans AT600 has no moving parts and requires minimal maintenance.
