DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT RESOURCES

  • 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.   

  • The Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) produces and supplies drinking water to over 11 million people in the Bangkok Metropolitan area covering the provinces of Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samutprakarn. On average, around 5.47 million cubic meters of water gets distributed daily through a network of pipelines spanning 37,700 kilometers.

  • Water Online’s “Math Solutions Explained” series, presented by wastewater consultant and trainer Dan Theobald (“Wastewater Dan”), educates operators by explaining pipe volume gallons calculations.

  • More frequent capture of water supply and distribution data is becoming a must-have for utilities as they strive to build network resilience, improve customer experience, and meet regulatory expectations. Ovarro’s associate product line manager for RTUs & loggers, Adam Wright, shares insights into the latest developments.

  • In the summer of 2020, the Lowcountry Regional Water System in Hampton, South Carolina, had a customer located in an industrial park report a low water pressure issue. The company was a commercial laundry that served the hospitality industry and provided linens to hotels around the Hilton Head area. The low water pressure issue was causing the company’s heat recovery system to work improperly shortly before the July 4 holiday. In its first use of the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER™ Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM), Lowcountry Regional Water System deployed two units to resolve the issue. One device was located on the water system’s side of the meter and the other device was placed inside the company’s building, where water enters the facility at the backflow preventer.

  • Fox Model FT1 Gas Mass Flow Meter

    The Fox DDC-Sensor™ is a new state-of-the-art sensor technology used in the Fox Model FT1 Thermal Gas Flow Meter. The DDC-Sensor™, a Direct Digitally Controlled sensor, is unlike other thermal flow sensors available on the market. Instead of using traditional analog circuitry, the DDC-Sensor™ is interfaced directly to the FT1 microprocessor for more speed and programmability. The DDC-Sensor™ accurately responds to changes in process variables (gas flow rate, pressure, and temperature) to determine mass flow rate, totalized flow, and temperature.

     

  • DigitalFlow™ DF868 Liquid Ultrasonic Flowmeter

    The DigitalFlow DF868 is a full-featured, fixed-installation liquid flowmeter designed to meet all your flow metering and energy measurement needs. Its patented Correlation Transit-Time™ digital signal processing provides drift-free measurements in ultraclean and most “dirty” liquids. This includes fluids with gas bubbles and entrained solids that have previously required Doppler-type meters.

  • OPTIBATCH 4011 Coriolis Mass Flowmeter

    The OPTIBATCH 4011 is the standard Coriolis mass flowmeter for process batching of conductive and non-conductive liquids. It is a highly accurate and specialized meter for linear and rotating filling machines. 

  • 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.

  • ModMAG® M4000 Electromagnetic Flow Meters

    The ModMAG® M4000 electromagnetic flow meter provides an accurate and reliable long-term solution in most applications because it’s virtually unaffected by density, temperature, pressure and viscosity changes. It is approved for Class 1, Division 1 environments.
