Making the Switch to AMI

Automated Meter Reading (AMR) consists of a collection of technologies used to gather monthly meter reading data which is then transferred over to a utility for billing and analyzing. Gathering the data simply involves walking or driving by with a handheld device. AMR provides numerous benefits including reducing meter reading costs, virtually eliminating billing errors, … Continued

Fatbergs Are No Match for the SL-RAT

We’re taking a trip to New Zealand today to focus on a problem at Lake Taupo, the largest lake in the country. For more than a year, the lake was dealing with a major problem involving the presence of fatberg, a congealed mass in a sewer system that sometimes forms when non-biodegradable solid matter like … Continued

Better Water Asset Management with WaterPoint Network

  As more and more municipalities race to become “Smart Cities”, the chase for non-revenue water as well as water asset management has become one of great importance. The WaterPoint Network (WPN) tool by 64seconds has increasingly become a vital solution to assist with these efforts. Keeping track of pipe, valve, meters and water source … Continued

Flow Measurement Solutions for Power Plants

Steam generating power plants often see varied types of water flow, from process samples of small size to much larger condenser cooling water. Monitoring these different flows can prove to be a challenge, particularly the high volume flow of larger pipes or pipes that lack enough straight run sections where a standard meter could be … Continued
