Providing flow surveys for a multitude of applications and industry sectors
One of Detectronic’s core competencies is to conduct flow surveys for water companies, civils contractors, MOD sites, construction companies and any other companies undertaking building developments.
Flow surveys are mainly carried out in wastewater sewer channels typically for an 8 week period and used to detect bottlenecks in the sewer system, inflow and infiltration rates, sewer capacity and areas susceptible to flooding.
Flow surveys are often extended for longer terms and into permanent monitoring solutions to help manage the wastewater network more efficiently.
The Detectronic MSFM range is typically used for this type of work and measures wastewater flow, depth and velocity in open and closed channels.
The MSFM S2U is battery powered making it suitable for use in remote locations and is available with GSM/GPRS communications. The battery within the MSFM is a Lithium ion cell which has a lifetime of 5 years.
Remote Data Management
All Detectronic remote data management portals use a user friendly interface allowing you to manipulate it into an easy to digest, interactive format. Web based, your information is accessible wherever and whenever you need it. With the ability to set up email or SMS alerts, you don’t even need to log in to know when your network needs attention.
For a flow survey, flow rates, velocity and depth information is recorded at regular intervals, typically at a 2-minute logging rate throughout the survey. Data is then transmitted daily and customer are able to access the information through the Detectronic portal.
Intelligent remote monitoring and alarm handling helps to ensure your network is running at optimal levels, assets are protected and you are minimising operating costs and risk.
