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.
Greyline AVFM Area-Velocity Flow Meters are installed thoughout the country by Teletronic Denmark to monitor municipal sewage and stormwater. Application photos and descriptions illustrate flow monitoring in manholes and open channels.
A Greyline AVFM Area-Velocity Flow Meter monitors and data logs water discharged from the Bray Quarry to the South Raisin River. The Quarry is required to measure flow for environmental permit compliance.
The Township of South Glengarry installs a new Greyline AVFM 5.0 Area-Velocity Flow Meter to measure continuous discharge from their municipal sewage lagoon. The sealed ultrasonic sensor is mounted in a horizontal 12` PVC pipe. The AVFM replaced a magnetic flowmeter that was unable to measure seasonal low flow rates.
An Ontario municipality deploys Portable flowmeters to solve flow rate discrepancies between sewage pump station effluent and lagoon influent flowmeters. Faced with suspension of construction permits due to flow rate uncertainty, the Township of North Glengarry called on Greyline Instruments to help troubleshoot two permanently installed flow meters.
Town operators were plagued by high level alarm call outs at two new sewage lift stations. Read how they used Greyline`s hybrid ultrasonic level controllers with dual sensor capability to put an end to level alarms.
After 16 years of service, the Long Sault WWTP replaced two older Greyline Open Channel Flow Monitors with new data logging OCF 5.0 models. This SBR treatment plant`s influent is measured with flow through two 6` Parshall Flumes.
A Surge Tank is used at the Okatokes Rec Centre Swimming Pool to regulate pool level. By monitoring level in a surge tank the non-contacting Greyline LIT25 Level Indicating Transmitter controls makeup water flow through a solenoid valve.
Culligan Water installs Greyline SLT32 Level Monitors to control tank levels in their bottling plant in Calgary, Alberta. With non-contacting ultrasonic sensors the SLT32`s control fill and discharge valves in five tanks containing spring water, reverse osmosis water and distilled water.
Thousands of dredges are operated to maintain navigation channels in our rivers, lakes and harbours and to mine sand and gravel for the construction industry. Managing and optimizing production from a dredge requires continuous monitoring of pipeline pressure, vacuum and slurry velocity. The operating conditions are extremely harsh and any sensing components in contact with the abrasive slurry can be damaged. But dredge operators need accurate real-time flow information to properly manage production so equipment...
Wax and solids build-up were plugging off pipes and in-line flowmeters at this oil battery site in Alberta. Read how Petrobakken Energy solved the problem by switching to Greyline DFM 5.0 Doppler Flow Meters with non-contacting ultrasonic sensors.
