  • 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 ...

  • Energy management for smart community

    Under the project title “Smartes Yspertal” an energy management concept for municipal administration buildings was created in the 1,900 inhabitant community in Lower Austria. Savings potential and inefficiencies in public buildings are thus to be shown. Microtronics has equipped the buildings with data loggers of the type ...

  • Soil CO2 Flux Measurements -- Addressing Spatial Variability: Determining the Number of Readings Required

    Soils can be highly variable in terms of CO2 flux values. Even at a seemingly uniform site, the soil CO2 flux might range from 2 μmol/m2/s at one location to over 4 mol/m2/s just a few meters away. To obtain reliable site mean flux values, it is important to determine how many readings might be required so that time and resources can be properly allocated before starting an investigation. In ...

  • TDS and EC meters for hydroponics explained

    As technology advances, questions inevitably follow. Due to the rapid growth of the hydroponics and indoor gardening industry, it is important for growers to be familiar with the technology, in this case instrumentation. There is a myriad of nutrients and fertilizers available to help you cultivate the best possible plant yields, but what is consistent among all of them is they need to be ...

  • Case Studies Demonstrate the Implications of Metering Errors

    General anomalies that occur in the management of apparent losses are identified and include determination of apparent loss indicators that fail to take into account both the random and bias errors inherent in metering. Estimating the volume of water losses that could be attributed to meter errors is also incorrectly assumed to be equivalent to the error limits (i.e. envelope) stipulated in ...

  • TLC meter “how-to” video: two-point user calibration

    A Solinst TLC Meter measures water level, temperature, and conductivity. To ensure accuracy of readings, the user can easily calibrate the Meter for conductivity, as required. User calibration allows for adjustment of a TLC Meter if the probe has been altered slightly due to mechanical, biological or chemical affects. If a TLC Meter is tested in standard calibration solution, and the readings are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Efficient Waste Water Treatment

    Clean drinking water is an essential need of mankind. Often surface water like rivers or lakes is used as drinking water source. To prevent these resources from pollution the effective treatment of waste water is a must. For example in China 75% of discharged waste water is coming from pulp and paper, textile and dyeing industries. To run a waste water treatment plant in the most efficient way ...

  • 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 ...

  • How To Put Your Building on a Water Diet in 2017

    As you prepare for the new year, why not commit your building to the same resolution as millions of American men and women: a diet! Every year, millions of gallons of water, one of our most precious resources, is wasted through undetected leaks, over irrigation and faulty equipment. Since most building managers and owners only check usage when the bill comes, your water usage is likely to ...

  • 5 ways to conserve water this winter

    Water conservation is something we harp on during the summertime, but what about during the winter? When the irrigation systems shut down, it’s easy to put conservation on the back burner while indoor water waste continues to occur. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the average person uses 80-100 gallons per day for everything from cooking, to showering and flushing the ...
