  • Development of a self-rechargeable digital water flow meter

    The objective of this paper is to present the feasibility of a self-rechargeable digital water flow meter (SRDFM) system for water pipes using the latest data processing and wireless communication technologies while causing negligible water pressure drop (head loss). The system uses a Pelton turbine generator to power the electronic circuit, which processes and transmits the signals generated by ...

  • How Does a Water Flow Meter Work?

    A water flow meter works by measuring the amount of water that passes though the flow meter. The most common mechanical types work by measuring the speed of flowing water that causes a turbine or piston to rotate. The volumetric flow rate of the water is proportional to the rotational speed. Other water flow meters include ultrasonic, magnetic and vortex flow meters. The best type of water flow ...

  • Pumps as turbines (PATs) in water distribution networks affected by intermittent service

    A hydraulic model was developed in order to evaluate the potential energy recovery from the use of centrifugal pumps as turbines (PATs) in a water distribution network characterized by the presence of private tanks. The model integrates the Global Gradient Algorithm (GGA), with a pressure-driven model that permits a more realistic representation of the influence on the network behaviour of the ...

  • How Does a Water Flow Meter Work?

    A flow meter works by measuring the amount of a gas, liquid or steam that passes through or around the flow meter sensors. While flow meter sensors work in many different ways, the end goal is the same: Deliver the most accurate and repeatable flow measurements for the specific application, whether for general research, process control or semiconductor processing. Flow meters measure either mass ...

  • Energy Efficient Vertical Turbine Pumps Promote Sustainable Mining Efforts

    The computational fluid dynamics process advances highly efficient pump designs for difficult applications. Energy is a strategic input for the mining industry in Latin America and worldwide. Mining requires large amounts of energy, which drives up total operational costs. In Chile, mining companies consume 34 percent of the total energy produced in the country and spend approximately ...

  • Non-Contacting Solution for Plugged Off Flow Meters in The Oil Patch

    For years Petrobakken Energy Ltd. used inline turbine flow meters to track the flow rate of oil recycled to treaters. But with a high concentration of wax and sand in the oil, the turbine meters were quickly plugging off. The line had to be shut down at least once a day and the turbine flowmeters disassembled for cleaning. This was troublesome and expensive. Petrobakken knew there had to be a ...

  • Controlling the addition of Chlorine into a Process

    There are several methods for controlling the addition of chlorine into a process. These methods include flow proportional injection, ORP (oxidation reduction potential) or a residual chlorine analyzer. Each method measures a different process characteristic. Depending on the specific type of process being controlled, there generally is a best choice for controlling the injection of either ...

  • Can saltwater quench our growing thirst?

    An increasingly water-stressed world takes a new look at desalination. It seems simple enough: Take the salt out of water so it’s drinkable. But it’s far more complex than it appears at first glance. It’s also increasingly crucial in a world where freshwater resources are progressively strained by population growth, development, droughts, ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...
