    Sewage Treatment Plants and Flow Sensors for Industry Application

    In sewage treatment plants, flow sensors are primarily installed for internal reasons. Ultrasonic flow meters are used to control the flow velocity in partially filled and fulfilled pressurized pipes, specific plant components, for leak detection or to control the use of additives. International regulations such as the EU-Directive for handling municipal waste water require flow metering for a continuous surveillance of waste water flow. Defective flow monitoring in sewage-treatment plants can therefore influence their operation, but there can also be legal or environmental consequences.

    Large pipes & ducts, hot tapping, purging flow solutions

    The measurement of gas flow in large ducts or pipes offers its own set of challenges. Large ducts and pipes often have swirls or turbulence in them which makes measurement of true gas flow difficult. Sierra has developed a number of solutions to this vexing problem, including stand-alone flow conditioning elements and multiple arrays of thermal sensors. By including hot taps and purging systems, such arrays can be very flexible.

    Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Water Power

    Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any interruptions. Ultrasonic flow meters, flow sensors and clamp-on flow meters (OR clamp-on technology) are ideal for accurate flow metering and flow monitoring.

  • Fibre Optic Distributed Temperature Sensing for Borehole Flow Monitoring

    Subsurface environments are critical not only as water resources but also for energy use including geothermal, CO2 sequestration and oil & gas operations. These sensitive environments are directly affected by anthropogenic activities, hence monitoring is essential. Temperature offers insight into a variety of physical properties and can be used for flow monitoring and flux quantification in the subsurface. Traditionally, point sensors have been used to collect temperature data; however, significant limitations exist.

    Disposal and Cleaning Equipment for Waste Water Industy

    Drinking water is not the only area requiring flow monitoring. The disposal and cleaning of waste water also requires flow meters. Waste water used to be dumped directly into the soil or an open channel. As awareness has increased, most discharges are now treated to assure long term sustainability. Modern water treatment plants are highly complex systems that require the use of flow sensors to monitor flow velocity in open channels for waste water discharge. Likewise facilities for waste water collection and clarification plants need regular data on flow rate. The use of radar non contact flow measurement and ultrasonic doppler flow meters are particularly efficient. HydroVision can complete flow measurements in all of these areas.

  • Emissions testing for industrial boilers and burners

    Industrial boilers and burners have their own unique characteristics. When an unexpectedly high CO is detected, the Testo 350 will automatically adjust to the situation, keeping the sensor protected at all times. Don`t worry about climbing and removing the probe from the stack, just hit the fresh air button. The measurements of O2, CO, NO and SO2, combined with automatic calculations (CO2, efficiency, excess air), provide fast tuning solutions. The 350`s compact design is better for working on a platform or small space. The automatic zero pressure measurement is ideal to monitor flow or draft induction. With a pitot tube you can quickly measure velocity and determine mass flow even during long term testing. The Testo 350 makes reporting in lbs/hour easy!

  • Wet gas monitoring for refineries

    Thermal mass flow meters provide excellent measurement capabilities in dry gas flows. They have proven durability, accuracy, and repeatability. However, thermal flow meters are sensitive to liquid droplets in a wet gas stream. For a thermal flow meter to work accurately in a condensing gas environment, the probe must be placed far enough downstream so that the entrained water has condensed onto the pipe wall. In a very wet environment, any condensing liquid (commonly referred to as mist or fog) contacting the sensor probes causes a high reading due to the liquid vaporizing on the heated portion of the sensor. As a result of this deficiency, measurements with conventional thermal meters are largely ignored when moisture levels rise because there is no confidence that the measurements are true.
