  • Flow Rate Measurement in Full Pipes Using the Transit Time Method

    Particularly in large diameters the relevance of water volume measurement is growing. The challenge with cooling water or fresh water processes is to generate accurate flow recordings or to document and to control individual consumptions and withdrawal quantities. Flow detection, however, particularly in large diameters is highly demanding. In such cases the transit time measurement thanks to its ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Decision support system for the optimal design of district metered areas

    The establishment of district metered areas (DMAs) is widely recognized as one of the most effective techniques for the optimal management of water distribution networks (WDNs). However, its implementation in real cases is a very challenging task that requires decision aiding. In this work, a comprehensive methodology for the optimal design of DMAs is presented and discussed. The proposed ...
