Stormwater Pump Lift Station Liquid Level Sensor

When a Central California municipality needed reliable level measurement of their stormwater pump lift stations, they turned to Flowline. Pump stations collect run off from streets and highways, and transfer their contents into water treatment, reclamation or disposal. During extreme weather events, they become violent environments with fast rising level, lots of agitation and foam. Factors that can directly affect level measurement reliability, damaging submersible pressure sensors and causing ultrasonic sensor intermittence due to foam. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our pulse radar liquid level sensors that are mounted safely above the sump, and unaffected by foam. The pulse radar sensor provides continuous level data to the SCADA, which in turn, monitors the sump level and actuates the high speed pumps. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
