Calculating Sewage Flow Success

Flow monitoring is necessary to obtain data when evaluating wet-weather and dry-weather in sanitary sewer flows. Incorporating the data into operational plans and optimizing maintenance activities are part of this process and continue to grow in popularity.   Monitoring sewer flow involves the installation of a network of flow meters within a sewer system during … Continued

Better Network Intelligence With Syrinix Total Head Pressure View

Several variables influence the pressure observed at every point in a pipeline, such as flow head loss from the reservoir or pump station providing the network and pressure intermittent events, to name a few. When evaluating measurements taken at different points on the network, total head variations will quickly overshadow more nuanced details such as … Continued

Startup Services Are Invaluable in Meter Installation

In a perfect world, a meter installation would always be a straightforward process, but this isn’t always the case. Many flow monitoring projects may initially seem simple but they may soon escalate into something much more involved, particularly if the meter is intended to address a complex measurement scenario. McCrometer provides a startup tool to … Continued

Utility Improves Burst Event Detection with Syrinix

The Dutch utility Evides provides drinking water for more than two million businesses and households in The Netherlands. The utility contacted Syrinix to inquire whether transient monitoring could prove a viable solution in the location and detection of bursts as well as developing a targeted response to operations. The plan to detect burst events began … Continued

A Brief Introduction to Clamp-On Flowmeters

    Ultrasonic flowmeters utilize sound waves to calculate fluid flow velocity in a pipe. The frequencies of an ultrasonic wave transmitted into a pipe and its fluid reflections remain the same under no-flow conditions. Thanks to the Doppler effect, the amplitude of the reflected wave differs under flowing conditions. The frequency shift will increase … Continued

Multiple Electrodes Make for Greater Accuracy with the FPI Mag

The drive to provide an optimum level of service plus the scarcity of water has spurred utility managers to concentrate more on obtaining the most accurate and current insights into their distribution systems. A major aspect of this involves flow measurement. Traditional center-line electromagnetic flow meters do not account for variations in velocities across a … Continued

Tackling Low Flow Cutoff

  Steam system operators may find themselves paying a steep price if product passes through a meter but doesn’t get measured. Commonly known as low flow cutoff, these losses typically happen because of a flow meter’s turndown ratio, which determines how wide a flow spectrum is able to be measured. If low flow cutoff is … Continued

Intelligent Flow Measurement with the DXN Portable Ultrasonic Flow and Energy Meter

      The DXN Portable Ultrasonic Flow and Energy Meter is truly a versatile, hybrid tool able to measure liquid flow with a multitude of technologies, including Doppler, liquid thermal (heat energy) flow, and transit time. With its simple installation, the DXN measures flow using non-invasive ultrasonic sensors practically effortlessly. Transit time flow meters … Continued

Essential Considerations When Choosing a Flow Meter

A water utilities’ critical process controls are highly reliant on dependable and accurate flow measurement. As flow metering continues to evolve, today there is a myriad of options available to address specific needs. To choose the best flow meter, it is imperative to look beyond low cost and consider other vital factors. Before deciding on … Continued
