Flow monitoring system helps prevent overflow (WaterWorld) During recent construction in the Knoxville Utilities Board's (KUB) wastewater collection system, a potentially large storm-induced sewer overflow was avoided in downtown Knoxville thanks to a wireless depth monitoring and alarming system that alerted KUB staff, allowing them to take just-in-time corrective actions...
Ultrasonic flowmeters 'on top of' difficult water jobs (Water & Wastewater International) Imagine the scenario: You have to measure the flow of liquid through a pipeline, the pipe is over a metre in diameter, you can only get access to the top of it and the only available access is via a narrow pit in the ground. This is exactly the situation encountered by engineers from Katronic Technologies and its customers on a regular basis. Ironically, a solution is simpler than it might seem...
