Dramatically Reduce the Odds of SSOs With Cutting-Edge FOG Software

The acronym FOG Stands for Fats, Oils, and Grease. These substances often lead to major headaches due to their propensity in causing Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) by creating blockages. The issue is typically caused by Food Service Establishments FSE’s that make fried foods and dump the grease down the drain, versus having it taken away … Continued

Correct FPI Pipe ID Is Essential

McCrometer’s full profile insertion (FPI) electromagnetic (mag) meter provides precise readings through the pipe’s full diameter, requiring a meter that is built especially for the pipe it will be mounted on. A convenient and reliable way to ensure the right pipe ID (inside diameter) is measured and registered is to have this job done by … Continued

Determining Flow Technology Compatibility

Many considerations will impact what type of meter is best for the job. It will help tremendously to consider the local environment, any possible pipeline intervention, and what the project priorities are. The flow meter can be used as a guide to making rational decisions about flow by knowing how it will interact with the … Continued

Badger Meter Solutions for HVAC Applications

Hydronic systems are stringent and have exact criteria for flow calculation that must be met by commercial and industrial facilities. Flow meters take care of measuring closed-loop energy where the liquid is absorbed by a source, cooled or heated, and then provided to a load as needed. Effective hydronic device installation is a crucial phase, … Continued

Kansas Farmers Rely on McCrometer Solutions

Farmers and irrigation experts recognize the value of providing accurate flow meters. In addition to working on a regular basis, in the rugged farm climate, they need to be readily compliant with state regulations but yet easy to use and long-lasting. A Kansas family works as irrigation dealers, and they are also farmers overseeing thousands … Continued

Ultrasonic Flow Technology for HVAC Applications

Contemporary systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) rely to a great extent on technology for flow and energy calculation. Owners of commercial and industrial facilities aim to deploy advanced flow metering solutions that allow them to accomplish optimum hydronic cooling and heating levels, even under very difficult conditions. In chilled/hot water systems, the … Continued

McCrometer’s McMag 2000 and McMag 3000 Are More Than Meets the Eye

The McCrometer® McMag 2000 and McMag 3000 may have similar names and a small number change, but the differences between the two electromagnetic (mag) meters go much deeper. For example, the Mc®Mag 3000’s sensor is identical to the FPI’s, except it has more electrodes, and the line is more invasive. The tilted sensor positioning, however, … Continued

WLSSD Saves Millions With Syrinix

Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) is responsible for wastewater treatment for more than fifteen communities and a trio of large industrial facilities in a 500+ square mile region in the Duluth-Cloquet Minnesota area. Preventing the occurrence of leaks and sewer overflows is one of its key priorities, something which is controlled in part by … Continued

A Few Things You May Not Know Regarding the McCrometer V-Cone

Did you know that the material construction of the McCrometer® V-Cone is among its most customizable components? Popular metals tend to be the norm for the V-Cone, but titanium is an option customers can explore. For applications that may involve especially corrosive fluid or dangerous environment, titanium may prove extremely useful, particularly if concerns regarding … Continued

What Does It Mean to ‘Calm’ a Water Network?

As a result of factors like fatigue and stress, joints and fittings on the pipeline experience leaks. In the case of pipeline wall failures, they may also experience thinning due to these same factors. Although a multitude of factors may lead to stress on the pipeline, ‘pressure transients’ is the one we’re concentrating on for … Continued
