We used the ORAKEL TOF clamp on flow meter to monitor flow within the existing pipework ready for the installation of a new potable water pipe line

opex vs capex: maintaining the right balance

Commissioning a wastewater monitoring programme can be a significant investment and a long term project. We help water companies choose the right budget model for them.

HEAPHAM LAKE

We installed a cluster of level and flow monitoring equipment to help Severn Trent Water manage and help prevent sewage leaks at this site of special scientific interest

BREWERY

When a brewery asked a contractor to help them better understand their sewer network, they contacted us to help us with the technology and equipment for the monitoring project.

VAUXHALL MOTORS

Twenty years after our first shipment of monitoring equipment for the sewage system to Vauxhall Motors, we have a maintenance contract to monitor ongoing wastewater monitoring.

SUD’S

The data and analysis provided by our monitors, rain gauges and data centers ensures that all existing and future SuDS can be successfully monitored to be reliable and effective
