When a Gulf Coast wastewater treatment plant needed reliable level measurement of their sewer pump lift stations, they turned to Flowline. These human waste receptacles are notoriously hard on sensors and pumps, as they contain feces, paper, grease, chemicals, particulates and trash. Plant operators had used pressure level sensors for years, but were tired of the high costs of downhole maintenance. As one said, “If we hang them from the top, the pump turbulence damages them. If we affix them to the bottom, we have to go down there to install and maintain them with a confined space team.” For these reasons, Flowline suggested our non-contact radar sensors that are easily installed at the top for maintenance-free operation. The radar sensors provide reliable level data to the SCADA for pump control and sensor display for convenient level indication. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
