DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT RESOURCES

  • Value of Wave Integration With PRVs

    Distribution system water main breaks are a significant burden to communities and water systems not only due to disruption of water service to customers, but also due to significant economic burdens in the form of pipe replacement costs, excavation costs, and even insurance reimbursements. Read the full white paper to learn the KETOS Wave can be easily installed into existing PRVs to monitor the pressure and flow in the downstream side of the valve and proactively act in real-time as needed.

  • Utility Enhances Wireless Wastewater Monitoring With Trimble Telog Ru-35 Technology

    Trimble Telog® technology helps Plainfield Area Regional Sewerage Authority (PARSA) become proactive to emerging problems.

  • Using IoT-Based Tank Level Monitoring For Volume Measurement

    Level monitoring systems has successfully triumphed every implementation. Their deployments allow the users to measure the level of liquid stored in a container of any shape, size, orientation, or material. Powered with the advanced telemetric technology of Internet of Things, these systems measure liquid level without making any contact with the liquid and transmit the readings to a comprehensive platform suite.

  • Reducing Costs For Water Distribution System Maintenance

    Maintaining a water distribution system requires constant management. From leaking pipes to broken valves or even distribution expansion, there always seems to be something to do and you will never be short of work. But, are “old” ways of performing maintenance and repair creating unnecessary costs?

  • Ensuring Water And Wastewater Resiliency During The Pandemic

    Remote monitoring helps keep employees safe while mitigating emergencies.

  • Water Use Patterns Provide A Sense Of Normalcy

    From his perch in the control center at Denver Water, Phil Malone watches the city shift and stir, shaking off the night’s slumber.

  • Optimizing Leak Detection With Virtual DMAs

    After experiencing significant real water losses in its distribution system and having difficulty locating the root causes, this large water authority in United Arab Emirates took a proactive approach by using real-time data to identify the source of leaks, reducing non-revenue water and gaining system intelligence to improve future operations, maintenance, and capital planning.

  • Improve Your Plant Efficiency With Accurate Water And Wastewater Monitoring

    A West Coast wastewater management facility provides design, management, and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system for an entire county, including the conveyance system and treatment system. The wastewater treatment plant has been established for over 50 years and has the capacity to treat 41 million gallons of sanitary sewage per day (mgd).value chain. Siemens suggested that the customer try the Siemens HydroRanger 200 controller. The HydroRanger 200 uses proven, continuous, ultrasonic echo ranging technology to monitor water and wastewater of any consistency up to 15 m (50 ft) in depth.

  • Remote Monitoring Provides Water Resilience During Crisis

    Managing three drinking water treatment facilities, multiple pump stations, more than 350 miles of pipelines, and a wastewater treatment facility is challenging even in normal conditions for a small city where agriculture is an economic driver and water demand can exceed 22 MGD.

  • Calibrating Success: Improved Tools To Maintain Flowmeter Accuracy

    Water utilities with highly successful monitoring programs tend to share a common trait: they have a well-defined plan for calibration that emphasizes frequency and tracking. However, when done properly, this process is time-consuming and often leads to unnecessary labor and downtime. The good news is that advanced metering technology is available for plants to get a better handle on the instrument’s performance with significantly less effort.

DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT SOLUTIONS

  • Capital Controls® Gas Feeder Series WM4000

    Capital Controls Series WM4000 gas feeders are wall cabinet mounted vacuum operated and designed to conveniently house a combination of gas feed equipment. The fibreglass cabinets enclose the gas flow control components.

  • OPTIMASS 7010 Coriolis Mass Flowmeter

    The OPTIMASS 7010 is a high-end single straight tube Coriolis mass flowmeter. It is particularly suitable for demanding process and dosing applications involving gases and shear-sensitive or viscous liquids, slurries, very aggressive media or media with a low flow velocity. The Coriolis meter features an integrated Modbus converter. This makes it the ideal solution for applications where a DCS or a PLC is already in use and extensive communication options and control functions are not necessary. By way of its Modbus interface the flowmeter integrates easily into existing controller systems. There is no need for a conventional signal converter. Purchase costs can be saved.

  • Capital Controls® Series 480 Vacuum Gas Feeders

    The Capital Controls® Series 480 all-vacuum gas feeder is designed for direct mounting to a 150 pound gas cylinder or ton container. It is a basic alternative for those applications requiring a chlorine feed rate of 250 PPD (5 kg/h) or less. The gas feed rate is controlled under sonic flow conditions eliminating the need for an auxiliary differential pressure regulators.

  • WATERFLUX 3100 Electromagnetic Flowmeter

    The WATERFLUX 3100 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) for all standard applications with raw, potable or abstraction water. It is the ideal solution for all general flow applications where reliable flow measurement with sufficient yet not extremely high accuracy is required. With its rectangular and reduced cross-section the EMF enables a stable measurement even at low flow rates. This way, the WATERFLUX 3100 offers a much larger turndown ratio (1000:1) than mechanical flowmeters (e.g. turbine meters) in drinking water distribution networks.

  • 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".

DRINKING WATER FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT VIDEOS

Engineers challenged by flow meter inaccuracy and repeatability issues will want to watch a new video featuring, “Vortab Flow Conditioners.” This video explains how air, gas and liquid flow measurement can be greatly improved anywhere restricted pipe runs in cramped equipment areas make following the flow meter manufacturer’s pipe straight-run requirements impractical or impossible.
