Elements to Successful Flow Monitoring

Flow Monitor Sensor Technology

Thursday, February 24, 2022 12N EST, 11am CST, 10am MST, 9am PST

While sewer flow monitoring is performed for a variety of reasons, there are some common elements to successful flow monitoring application. Elements to Successful Flow Monitoring will be presented and discussed in a two-part webinar series. Part 1 will focus on the principle of operation for sewer flow measurement and the pros and cons of different measurement technologies. Part 2 will focus on flow monitor site selection, installation, operation, and maintenance. Whether you work for a municipality, a consulting engineering firm, or a flow service provider, important principles and practical advice will be shared to maximize your monitoring programs.

Part 1 – Flow Monitor Sensor Technology

A wide variety of sensors are available today for sewer flow measurement. These sensors are classified according to their principle of operation and the technologies they use. The area-velocity method is the most common approach and relies on flow depth and velocity sensor measurements to calculate flow rate. Flow depth measurement options include ultrasonic and pressure technologies, while flow velocity measurement options include electromagnetic, ultrasonic, radar, and laser technologies. Some of these technologies are applied with submerged sensors, some are applied with non-contact sensors, and some apply a combination of the two. Strengths and weaknesses of each approach and each technology will be discussed, as well flow conditions best suited for them.

Duration: 50 minutes with up to 10 minutes of Q&A to follow
