October 10, 2022 – ADS® announced availability of the new ParaDepth™ non-contact, depth sensor, used with the ADS TRITON+® flow monitors and ADS PRISM software.
Acquisition of accurate depth data is critical for making timely decisions to manage collection systems. The ParaDepth sensors, in combination with TRITON+ monitors and PRISM™ software, provide a seamless, end-to-end solution for depth data collection and analysis.
ParaDepth is an ultrasonic sensor that precisely focuses the output via a patented parabolic reflector design. Its recessed sensor and polycarbonate housing provide exceptional durability in sewer flows. It has an in-air operating range of 144” (3.7M) and has no deadband.
ParaDepth can be mounted above the flow in a pipe, secured by a bracket that is mounted to a metal ring on the pipe. A second mounting option uses the all-new Topside Retrieval System™. With this, the bracket is positioned above the flow and secured to the manhole chimney. This method enables removal and replacement of the sensor without manhole entry.
Depth data collected with ParaDepth is key to a wide range of applications including, I&I analysis, CSO activation, SSO mitigation, collection system cleaning optimization, bypass monitoring, and lift/pump station backup.
