  • Detect Leaks and Analyze Water Consumption with WaterSignal

    Did you know it will cost an estimated $1 trillion over the next 25 years to upgrade the nation’s water system to run more efficiently? While part of the problem is fragile, hundred-year-old water mains, it also falls on property owners to ensure they are doing their part to save water — for both the environment and their wallets. But how? ...

  • Determination of Flow Rates in part-filled Applications using the Radar Method

    Introduction The radar measurement method plays an increasingly important role in the water and wastewater field. This is particularly reflected by the "Metering outside of the medium" trend. Flow measurement using radar which enables contactless measurements thus becomes a major focal point. It features a wide range of applications and hence is useful as permanent measurement system for ...

  • Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study

    Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reclaimed Water Metered Pricing and Its Effect upon Water and Sewer Rates

    This paper describes the evaluative process that the City of Clearwater went through to determine that metering reclaimed water, and setting higher reclaimed water rates to provide a greater level of self sufficiency, reversed a number of dynamics that were going to have negative long-term consequences, while allowing a reduction in the annual rate increases required for the City’s water and ...

  • World`s Most Advanced and Easiest to Use Sonic Water Level Meters

    A common theme among drillers and environmental monitoring companies is the need to repeatedly measure water levels and until recently that meant constantly lowering and raising heavy measurement tapes. If you were lucky they wouldn't get stuck or break off leading to spoiled test results and expensive repairs. Eno Scientific has solved this problem by manufacturing the ...

  • Leakage fault detection in district metered areas of water distribution systems

    Fault tolerance and security in drinking water distribution operations are important issues that have received increased attention in the last few years. In this work the problem of leakage detection is formulated within a systems engineering framework, and a solution methodology to detect leakages in a class of distribution systems is proposed. Specifically, the case where water utilities use ...

  • A new approach to improve water loss control using smart metering data

    The control of water losses is a major concern in the sustainability of urban water utilities and in promoting the efficient use of this natural resource. Recent advances in telemetry technology provide high-resolution consumption data at the consumer level, allowing for a remarkable knowledge improvement on the different water balance components. However, few studies focus on systematic ...

  • Using smart meters to identify social and technological impacts on residential water consumption

    Studies have shown that householders' perceptions of their water use are often not well matched with their actual water use. There has been less research, however, investigating whether this bias is related to specific types of end use and/or specific types of socio-demographic and socio-demographic household profiles. A high resolution smart metering study producing a detailed end use event ...

  • Optimal meter placement for pipe burst detection in water distribution systems

    Pipe bursts in water distribution systems (WDS) must be rapidly detected to minimize the loss of system functionality and recovery time. Pipe burst is the most common failure in WDS. It results in water loss out of the system, increased head losses, and low pressure at the customers' taps. Therefore, effective and efficient detection of pipe bursts can improve system resilience. To this end, ...

  • Effect of bank curvatures on hyporheic water exchange at meter scale

    The micro-topography feature of a riverine system is a controlling attribute to induce the change of patterns and magnitudes of hyporheic water exchange. The study aims to determine how hyporheic water exchange is affected by the bank curvatures of test points at meter scale. A one-dimensional heat steady-state transport model was applied to determine patterns and magnitudes of vertical ...

  • Linking water consumption smart metering with census data to improve demand management

    This study uses high-frequency water consumption data from 311 smart meters to link consumption with census data. For this purpose a well-established procedure was adopted. Results include the identification of the socio-demographic profiles associated to low, medium, medium-high and high water consumption groups and distinct daily consumption patterns in terms of the period of the day with ...

  • Qdos metering pumps usurp diaphragm models in potable water application

    The revolutionary new Qdos 30 metering pump from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group is proving a resounding success in Barrie, Canada. Located in southern Ontario on the western shore of Lake Simcoe, Barrie is a modestly sized city (135,000 residents) but one with a track record for quality when it comes to its potable water supply. Here, the Water Operations Branch of the Corporation of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • A new hardwire circuit for metering reactivity

    Sub-criticality, criticality, and reactivity are the terms which are not annunciated in Indian PHWRs (Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors) and are thus not very clear to the reactor operators. These parameters are prime movers defining nuclear reactor and should be annunciated in control room by simple means to aid operator to view reactivity excursions while in power operation or during shutdown ...

  • Smart metering use cases to increase water and energy efficiency in water supply systems

    Efficient water and energy use in water distribution systems is being limited by the lack of sufficient data about water and related energy consumption. Therefore, it is crucial to provide updated and continuous feedback information to water users. This paper describes relevant use cases to improve efficient water use and related energy consumption by water utilities and consumers through the ...

  • 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 ...
