City Stormwater Pump Station Radar Level Measurement

Stormwater Pump Lift Station Radar Level Sensor

Stormwater Pump Lift Station Radar Level Transmitter

When a Southern California desert community needed reliable level measurement of their most problematic stormwater lift station, they turned to Flowline. Located at the base of a steep mountain canyon, the station receives typical run off from the surrounding neighborhoods. But about two days a year, El Nino rains fill the streets with quick moving water that races to the 36′ station, causing extreme turbulence and fast rising level conditions. During which, the previous ultrasonic level sensor would become intermittent, the SCADA would alarm, and a service truck would be unhappily dispatched. For this reason, Flowline suggested our radar sensors that are unaffected by turbulent, fast rising or falling water processes, such as lift stations. The radar sensor provides reliable level data to the SCADA system, which monitors the station and controls the pumps. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
