Municipal Effluent Discharge Liquid Level Transmitter

When the Birdsboro, PA water treatment plant needed reliable level measurement of their effluent discharge basin, they turned to Flowline. Effluent flows continuously from the plant to the basin, where a modulating gate valve controls its further release to the Schuylkill River. Additionally, two submersible pumps provide backup during peak flows or gate valve failure, and the entire process is level controlled. Hence the basin level sensor must perform reliably across all environmental scenarios including extreme rain, wind, snow and temperature. For this reason, Flowline suggested our radar level sensors that are unaffected by the elements, and robustly packaged for outdoor use. The radar sensor provides continuous level data to the local display and PLC, which in turn, monitors the basin and controls the discharge. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
