Stormwater Pump Station Liquid Level Sensor


Stormwater-Pump-Lift-StationWhen a West Virginia municipality needed reliable level measurement of their stormwater pump lift stations, they turned to Flowline. Pumping stations collect and transfer stormwater run off into water treatment, reclamation or disposal. But they also receive trash, dirt, plant material, grease, debris, chemicals and anything else you can imagine, making them very challenging applications. As a result, their submersible pressure sensors were often clogged and unreliable. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our non-contact, pulse radar sensor that’s unaffected by such variables. The pulse radar sensor is bracket mounted to the side wall and provides continuous level data to the SCADA, which in turn, controls the pumps. The sensor’s display provides convenient local indication. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
