When a Pennsylvania municipality needed reliable level measurement of their feed water canal, they turned to Flowline. The treatment plant supplies fresh drinking water to 375,000 homes in greater Philadelphia. Water enters the plant through a 40′ wide canal that’s fed by two reservoirs. The canal level is measured and used to control the flow rate from each reservoir. The measurement is critical and the operators had experienced problems with ultrasonic level sensors during extreme weather. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our pulse radar level sensors that are unaffected by environmental conditions such as rain or wind. The pulse radar sensor provides continuous level data to the SCADA system, which in turn, controls the reservoir flow rates. The local display provides convenient indication to the operators.
Flowline is reliable level measurement.
