  • Consumption estimation with a partial automatic meter reading deployment

    Automatic water meter reading (AMR) is now the best kind of technology to supply real time information on water consumption. Complete equipment of a district metered area enables the assessment of the total consumption of a finite size population, for a time scale sometimes as short as an hour. However, its cost for generalization can generate high capital expenditures (CAPEX), unaffordable for ...

  • Noise Monitors and Meters

    Sound level meters Description and ApplicationsThe sound level meter is a lightweight instrument for the measurement of sound pressure level (SPL) in decibels. All ANSI-approved meters meet minimum requirements that include an A-weighted network, a slow-response meter characteristic, and a fully graduated scale with measurements ranging from 80 to 130 dBA. The Type II meter is most frequently ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • The key advantages of FlashRES resistivity meter

    FlashRES-UNIVERSAL is the first instrument in the world that can fully utilise all its electrodes during data collection.  It is a significant technological breakthrough.

  • A CFD study of the effect of venturi geometry on high pressure wet gas metering

    Venturi meter is increasingly being preferred as wet gas flow meter because of its simple construction and ease of operation. It has been found that the performance of venturi in single phase gas is very different from that of water. In this work, with a view to optimise the design, the effects of diameter, diameter ratio and convergent angle on the performance of a venturi meter for wet gas ...

  • 50th anniversary of world`s first sound level meter

    Sound Level Meter Celebrates 50th Anniversary 2010 is the year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Type 2203, the mother of all sound level meters. It was the world’s first precision hand-held and transitorised sound level meter. Produced for 21 years, it sold a record number of 17300 units. With its upgrades Type 2204 (Impulse time constant) and 2209 (peak detector), it accounted for a ...

  • What You Need to Know about Electronic Automation of Hydraulically-operated, Diaphragm-actuated Control Valves

    Hydraulically controlled, diaphragm-actuated control valves are the mainstay of the waterworks industry to control pressure, flow, level, pump control, and at times to meter. These automatic control valves are controlled by pilots to do specific tasks and are mainly single-set-point systems. With the need to remotely actuate and control the valves and the applications becoming more complex, ...

  • Multivariate consumption profiling (MCP) for intelligent meter systems: a methodology to define categories and levels

    Multivariate Consumption Profiling (MCP) is a methodology to analyse the readings made by Intelligent Meter (IM) systems. Even in advanced water companies with well supported IM, full statistical analyses are not performed, since no efficient methods are available to deal with all the data items. Multivariate Analysis has been proposed as a convenient way to synthesise all IM information. MCP ...

  • Sub-metering of natural gas-flexible flow measurement delivers improved accuracy and substantial savings

    Introduction Unlike oil, natural gas exists in abundance in the United States. Of the natural gas consumed in the United States in 2011,95% was produced domestically. The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects U.S. natural gas production to increase from 23.0 trillion cubic feet in 2011 to 33.1 trillion cubic feet in 2040, a 44% increase. Almost all of this increase in ...

  • Full waveform data display

    FlashRES resistivity meter displays full current and voltage data when the system is collecting these data. The real time read out of the data effectively helps operator to monitor the data quality. In case the data quality Q factor drops in value, the operator can pause the data collection process and check the background, contact and instrument noise. Displa full waveforms thus protect ...

  • Case study - Flowmeter troubleshooting at the township of North Glengarry

    The Problem... The forcemain meter at the pump station read five times higher than the open channel flowmeter at the lagoon 2 km away. The Township needed to determine which of the two flow meters was reading incorrectly. Troubleshooting Forcemain Flow... First step was to evaluate performance of the 12” magmeter at the sewage pump station. The cost ...
