Stormwater Pump Lift Station Liquid Level Transmitter

When a Houston municipality needed reliable level measurement of their storm lift stations, they turned to Flowline. Storm water flows from streets to pump stations that gather and transfer the run off to nearby treatment plants, ponds or culverts. While trash and debris are screened prior to the lift stations, sediment passes through and collects at the bottom of the sumps. There the operators had ongoing problems with pressure level sensors that would clog and require expensive confined space downhole maintenance. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our non-contact pulse radar sensors that provide reliable maintenance free measurement. Here the operators installed the sensor through the sump top, mounted on a metal plate for convenient access. The pulse radar sensor provides continuous level data to the SCADA, which monitors the sump and controls the two pumps. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
