How to choose an installation location of the paddle wheel flowmeter?

Impurities, pressure, water volume, bubbles, etc. are factors to affect flow meter measurement. For avoiding these factors to make sure on-site operation works well, LORRIC recommends that carefully choosing suitable installation location before installing flowmeter will efficiently get rid of these mentioned factors. Through below simple guideline for correct flowmeter installation location on vertical and horizontal pipe LORRIC builds up from decades of client service and on-site experience, it is easy for users to increase the accuracy of flow measurement for successful on-site management.

What is Water Hammer?

Water Hammer is a pressure surge or wave caused when a fluid, usually a liquid but sometimes also a gas, in motion is forced to stop or change direction suddenly; a momentum change. This phenomenon commonly occurs when a valve closes suddenly at an end of a pipeline system, and a pressure wave propagates in the pipe. This pressure wave can cause major problems, from noise and vibration to pipe collapse. It is possible to reduce the effects of the water hammer pulses with accumulators, expansion tanks, surge tanks, blowoff valves, and other features.

The two new forms of innovation users get to experience through LORRIC’s sensors

After interviewing and associating with over a thousand flowmeter users, getting a deep insight into their on-site work environment, we discovered that on-site factory management, as a consequence of automation, requires on-site personnel to have a larger inspection range than before. That combined with a less than ideal line of sight inside the factory environment, all contribute to make on-site management difficult. In order to increase on-site management efficiency, we believe that apart from the machinery’s sensing capabilities, screen redesign can be the other key to solving user pain points.

A Comparison Between the AxleSense Technology and Traditional Paddlewheel Flowmeters

It has already been many years since the use of paddlewheel flowmeters became a staple in many industries. The relatively convenient installation with both horizontal and vertical measuring options, relatively large range of flow speeds measuring ability, as well as having both the accuracy of electronic flowmeters but with an equally low price, all contributed to it being a favorite of such a broad user base.

The importance of flowmeters under stricter regulations of wastewater disposal

With the increase in Water consumption in all areas, it is a critical time for governments to promote effective and responsible water use, treatment, and disposal. In most countries, wastewater laws have been implemented, laying the foundation for sustainable wastewater management. Other countries, however, legislation is slow and complicated. Regulations are complicated and there is often a geographical division, for example EU regulations vrs State level regulations.
