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.

The most dramatic and identifying characteristic of water is that it is always moving. Even so-called standing water is never completely static; it’s either being drawn by gravity to seep down into the earth or being agitated by warmth at the surface to rise into the air as a vapor.

The history of SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) begins with the widespread development of computers in the 1950s. Before manufacturing and remote sites started to grow, people managed the standard control and monitoring processes by hand. As mainframe computers grew in popularity, utilities and industries adopted the concept of

Successful Water Leak Detection and Audit Methods

Every drop of clean water is precious. Unfortunately, 30–50% of water is lost through aging infrastructure. And lost water equals lost revenue to the water service supplier. Water is lost through leaks and cracks in pipes and their fit­tings. Since most infrastructure is underground, it is virtually impossible to visually

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

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.
