WASTEWATER FLOW CONTROL RESOURCES

  • Existing level monitoring, usually for combined sewer overflow (CSO) or event duration monitoring (EDM) purposes has been in regular use in the U.K. for over a decade, but the equipment hasn’t changed much in that time. With the current technology comes limitations. So, the question Dave Walker, co-founder and commercial director at wastewater monitoring specialists Detectronic, has been asking is: How can we do level monitoring better for the benefit of water companies, their customers, and the environment?

  • With freshwater sources depleting rapidly, treating and consuming wastewater seems to be the only option in the near future. As per a UN population fund released in 2001, it was estimated that the world will start facing water-related issues by 2050.

  • The City of Warren Water Recovery Facility in Michigan, treats and protects the waters of the state. Proper water treatment is the main goal for the City as it has a direct impact on the future, ecosystem and providing residents safe and clean water to drink and participate in outdoor activities. Read the full case study to learn how the City of Warren Water Recovery Facility has been able to attain accurate data at a high repeatability rate since the installation of the Promag W unrestricted mounting 0 x DN electromagnetic flowmeter.

  • 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.

  • Remote monitoring helps keep employees safe while mitigating emergencies.

  • Today, the world is facing unprecedented circumstances that are affecting every single sector and the water service is no exception. Although there is still more research to be done, this article has collected the currently available information to highlight how wastewater utilities have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, this article will attempt to look at the outbreak’s impact on utilities, the potential hazards, and the predominant solution.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • When water and wastewater plant operators can’t get accurate flow measurements or analytical readings — or lack confidence in their instruments’ readings — it creates challenges with the process. When substandard water goes to homes and causes a boil order, or discharge pollutes a lake or reservoir, the resulting bad press, fines, and potential lawsuits erode public confidence. Avoiding these kinds of problems is rooted in good preventive maintenance habits.

FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT

 

Flow measurement can be defined as quantification of the movement of water in a given channel. Flow can be measured either by determining the displacement and/or Velocity of the water. Water meters usually control measure and display total usage in cubic meters, on either mechanical or electronic registers. 

Flow can be divided into two main flows which are: Open channel flow and Closed conduit flow. Flow is controlled by use of valves at intervals to either to slow down, allow faster flow or completely shut down the flow. Some water meters usually perform both the function or making readings and controlling flow while others just conduct measuring only. 

Meters for reclaimed water contain special lavender register covers show that the water is non-potable. Velocity-type meters measure the velocity of flow through a meter of a known internal capacity. The speed of the flow can then be converted into volume of flow for usage. Since Multi-jet meters are usually very accurate in small sizes they are normally used for residential and smaller commercial uses. Turbine meters are not as accurate as jet meters and displacement meters at low flow rates. 

A compound meter is used where high flow rates are necessary. Magnetic flow meters are a velocity-type water meter, except that they use electromagnetic properties to determine the water flow velocity. In water treatment plants, measurement and control devices can be installed in the following locations: within interceptors or manholes, the head of the plant, in the force mains that lead to main tanks etc. Automatic Meter Reading has compelled producers to build pulse or encoder registers to provide electronic output for radio transmitters, reading storage devices, and data logging devices.
