    Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Hydrology

    In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for shipping, transportation, irrigation, drainage and for cooling water extraction of power plants. A further important use of transit-time open channel flow meters is the transportation of water used for the supply of drinking water. Here the focus lies on detecting the flow rate of water loss at an early stage as it is sometimes difficult to detect small leakages.

  • Separation and filtration for urban areas

    In urban areas can geotextiles be found in most diverse applications. The geotextiles are being used in access and paved roads, sport fields, riverbed protection, drainage trenches and pond liner protection. The geotextiles are also being used in vertical drainage applications. Groundwater and excess rainwater can be controlled well when geotextiles are properly used. More and more floods cause serious damage to urban areas.

  • Water-blocking geotextiles

    SAF is the key component for a range of geosynthetic membrane fabric technologies – which can be adapted into a wide range of formats – that are used by many industries requiring water-sealant solutions. Such fabrics are designed to act as a barrier to water and help alleviate the problems of flooding. As a fibrous super absorbent it allows for ease of handling, giving rise to exceptionally substantive and even distribution profiles within final fabric construction. As such, geosynthetic membrane fabrics incorporating this technology offer truly unparalleled levels of waterblocking performance. These fabrics have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect and/or drain, and offer many advantages that are extremely important to demanding civil engineering projects. The fact that they can be supplied in rolls is also a huge benefit when being used on large-scale projects.
