Providing flow surveys for a multitude of applications and industry sectors

Flow Surveys

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 measure depth and velocity of the water within the network. Raingauges are often used in conjunction with a flow monitor for a greater understanding of the environmental conditions when trying to understand the causes of flooding or bottlenecks.

All Detectronic flow monitoring equipment is available to buy or to hire.

typical applications

Detectronic uses ultrasonic flow measurement technology to enable water utilities and industrial companies manage their networks and processes effectively.

Water utilities
  • Trade effluent monitoring
  • Understanding the volumetric flow through a process line
  • Validation of an installed metering system
  • Pump efficiency

Flow surveys are often extended for longer terms and into permanent monitoring solutions to help manage the wastewater network more efficiently.

The Detectronic MSFM flow meter range is typically used for this type of work and measures wastewater flow, depth and velocity in open and closed channels.

The MSFM is battery powered making it perfect for installations that have no mains power available, such as remote sites. The lithium Ion battery has a life expectancy of 5 years.

The ORAKEL Time of Flight monitor has non-invasive, clamp-on transducers that allow you to measure nearly any process line without the need for cutting, welding, or process shutdown.

It can measure almost any fluid that contains <10% solids or gas; including water, oils, petrochemicals, alcohol and more.

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.
