Flow Measurement for Industrial and Municipal Water Treatment Systems

Accurate and reliable liquid flow measurement for municipal and industrial water and wastewater treatment systems present interesting challenges. A cost effective, and very accurate flow meter is essential to assure proper flow measurement of water resources and wastewater effluent.

In water and wastewater treatment, accurate flow measurement is critical to the following to applications:

Water Treatment
  • UV Dosing 
  • Filter Balancing and Backwash
  • Effluent
  • Distribution 
  • Wells & Booster Stations 
  • Potable Water
Wastewater Treatment
  • Effluent 
  • Recycle / Reclaim
Accurate flow measurement is a critical control variable for the following industries: chemical & petrochemical plants, metals & mining, power plants (and cogeneration), paper mills, food & beverage.

Industrial Applications include:
  • Fire Water 
  • Raw Water 
  • Inlet to Surge Basin 
  • Cooling Water
  • Feed Water
  • Effluent
One particularly well suited flow meter for these applications is the FPI Mag Flow Meter from McCrometer. It provides simple installation, lower costs, unmatched accuracy, a very robust construction, and the versatility to solve many flow metering applications.
