Tag: flow meter

Flow can be measured in a variety of ways. Positive-displacement flow meters accumulate a fixed volume of fluid and then count the number of times the volume is filled to measure flow. Other flow measurement methods rely on forces produced by the flowing stream as it overcomes a known constriction, to indirectly calculate flow. Flow may be measured by measuring the velocity of fluid over a known area.

In Pursuit of Data

In Pursuit of Data

When accurately obtained and analyzed, water-quality data has the potential to drastically influence our daily lives by identifying problems, verifying solutions, and fueling scientific revelations. Understanding how water moves through our society and how our society affects its condition can improve conservation and management of this necessary global resource. Every

The Art of Leak Detection and the Arithmetic of Audits

The Art of Leak Detection and the Arithmetic of Audits

According to EPA, public systems face numerous challenges, including aging infrastructure, increasing regulatory requirements, water quantity and water concerns, and inadequate resources. These challenges are amplified through changes in population and climate. It is estimated that the US will need to spend upwards of $200 billion on water systems in

Straight to the Source

Leak detection is one of the highest priorities of any water distribution system operator. Leaks are the result of structural failures to the containment integrity of a water supply system’s distribution pipe network. These failures can occur anywhere in the pipe system but mostly occur at pipe joints and fittings.

A Critical Role

A Critical Role

When it comes to moving water efficiently, pumps and valves play a critical role. Some efficiency concerns focus on the wastewater utility sector, where “the EPA state revolving funds are going to fixing failing existing sewers—not so much extending into new service areas as much as they have been, but

Well-known for their industry-leading water level instrumentation, In-Situ has carried their trusted design and high-accuracy sensors over to the new meters, allowing them to offer durable water level tapes that meet

Technical Focus: Backflow Prevention

Technical Focus: Backflow Prevention

Water supply systems must ensure that they remain isolated from drainage systems, groundwater, storm sewers, and sanitary sewers. Should the flows from any of these places enter a water main via siphon or backflow, the drinking water supply could be contaminated. A backflow prevention device keeps this from happening by

When You Need to Make It Flow Uphill

When deploying sustainable water networks, we can observe the watersheds they’ll inhabit to seize opportunities to serve both people, and the planet. In the 21st century, we’re getting used to scientific facts running circles around science fiction, yet water will always behave the same. Whether we use sophisticated electronic pumping
