NON-CONTACT DISCHARGE MEASUREMENT FOR WASTEWATER, SEWAGE SYSTEMS AND INDUSTRIAL WATERS
The radar sensors of the SQ series continuously measure the discharge (flow) volume of sewer systems, ducts, semi-filled pipes and other technical channels in the fields of wastewater and industrial effluents. Due to the contact-free measurement deposits and other solids in the water do not harm the sensor. This is especially advantageous for the measurement of wastewater. The compact design allows an installation in manholes or in sewage systems.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
Using the radar sensors of the SQ-series various applications in the fields of waste- and process water are possible, as for example discharge measurements in sewer systems, wastewater treatment plants, channel systems, ducts, semi-filled pipes and other technical bodies of water. It is important to monitor the flow rate at the inlet of a sewage treatment plant to be able to regulate the different processes and systems or to allocate the costs in wastewater associations. Similarly municipalities or local water authorities need to measure duration and frequency of rain and flood events in order to manage their storm water channels most efficiently. At central measuring spots in the rainwater sewer system and/or at rainwater overflow basins the amount of water and the discharge rates are determined. The SQ flow meters are perfectly suitable for all these different situations.
Due to its compact design and flexible mounting device, the sensor can be installed very easily. It can be fixed underneath a bridge or at a crossbeam, at the ceiling of closed channels or in a service manhole of sewer channels. Moreover, the SQ is equipped with a mounting cube that allows a vertical / horizontal flexible fixation. Due to the non-contact measuring technology the system can be installed outside of the body of water. This is a big advantage since like this the sensor is prevented from deposits and soiling, what usually happens with submerged devices. Hence, the system remains maintenance-free and easy to access.
For installations in sewer manholes a variable adjustable mounting device can be delivered together with the SQ sensor.
SYSTEM SOLUTION: SQ AS MOBILE, STAND-ALONE STATION
For remote measurement sites without permanent power supply and landline wire connection the SQ can be equipped for remote operation. Including a data logger and data transmission technology (2G/3G/4G modem) together with a strong battery pack the SQ becomes a strong self-supporting and independent system ideally suited for applications in the field or external measurement stations. Optionally the system can be upgraded with a solar panel and a camera for visualisation of the current situation.
