  • Effective monitoring improves sewage flow management case study

    SmartScan 50 introduces an effective solution for flow measurement of sewage water in one of Poland's municipal waste water treatment plant. The city of Zblewo, Poland provides waste water treatment services to its inhabitants. The plant sought an ultrasonic measurement solution for monitoring the raw sewage flow during the treatment process. The problems When entering the ...

  • AVFM 5.0 area-velocity flow meter monitors sewage lagoon discharge flow

    The Township of South Glengarry in Eastern Ontario discharges continuously from their 72,000 m3 sewage lagoon. But they ran into flow measurement problems when their magnetic flowmeter was unable to detect seasonal low flow rates. Operations Manager, Shawn Killoran selected a Greyline AVFM 5.0 Area-Velocity Flow Monitor because it was simple to install in a horizontal discharge pipe from the ...

  • Typical Sensor Location Considerations

    The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe leak, or faulty valve? density of ...

  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • Continuous on-line monitoring of dissolved oxygen in the activated sludge of a sewage treatment plant

    Dissolved oxygen is traditionally measured using a Clark cell, which relies upon a gas-permeable membrane for its opera-tion. Such sensors are subject to fouling with subsequent loss of accuracy, making frequent maintenance and calibration necessary. The objective of this development was to take advantage of specific properties of microelectrode arrays, such as low flow-dependence, insensitivity ...


  • Portable Monitoring Instruments Solve Flow Rate Mystery

    The Glen Walter Sewage Collection System was built to service 1080 customers in 1989. At the time the population was 850 but by 1995 the sewage treatment plant had already reached capacity. Shawn Killoran took over the Operations Manger position in 1999 and, along with the Mayor and Council, he immediately had concerns about the excess flow. The Township started by video taping all of the lines ...

  • Dunstable sewage treatment plant steps up to mono nov for a complete extraction package

    Underlining its ability to supply either individual products or complete packaged systems for this type of application, Mono also provided two screw extractor systems and a single screw conveyor to partner an existingunit. The original step screen units installed on the Dunstable plant’s inlet flow had proved to be inefficient and unreliable. The replacement Discreen units now screen the inflow, ...

  • OCF 5.0 open channel flow monitors - monitor infulent at Long Sault WWTP plant

    Greyline Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Long Sault, Ontario when the SBR plant was originally commissioned in 1995. But after 16 years of continuous service, components for the old models became obsolete. Plant operators Caneau Water and Sewage Inc. decided to replace the instruments and new Greyline OCF 5.0 Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sewer Level Monitoring - Photos

    Sewer Level Monitoring - Photos Photos in this article present the complexity and versatility of sewer level monitoring. When examining the photos, pay special attention to the stand-alone autonomous characteristics of each installation. In lack of any cabling from the outside, whether data cables or power cables, the solution is fed from its own battery power supply. Data is tranmitted ...

  • A sewer process model as planning and management tool – hydrogen sulfide simulation at catchment scale

    The collection system of a major city at the Persian Gulf was simulated for bulk water hydrogen sulfide and the release of sewer gas to the urban atmosphere. Geometry data on 870 km of sanitary sewer and data on dry weather flow entering all nodes in the catchment was exported from a Mike Urban database and imported to the sewer process model WATS. The process model then routed sewage and sewer ...
