At the center of each system is a calculation that is used on every single project to determine the Total Dynamic Head, or TDH, of the system. The TDH describes many different variables as a single number that can be used to engineer pump stations with respect to the desired pumping rate of the system.
Good pump station site-fencing plans can offer numerous benefits to owners and operators of pump stations. Each location has unique requirements and these should be considered when designing a new site.
Choosing the best telemetry for your pump station involves looking at your personnel, resources, and management practices to find the most appropriate technology.
Romtec Utilities designs, engineers, and manufactures pump stations as complete packages, including some equipment that improves the operation of the system. Davit cranes are one option that can be included with many pump stations and offer several benefits to both owners and operators of the system.
Bubbler level sensors excel in providing continuous level measurements in applications where submerged sensors may be damaged.
Conductive probes make an excellent backup level sensing option in many applications, but are primarily used in municipal wastewater systems. Their functionality requires water to make contact with one of the points on the sensor to allow an electrical current to pass through and complete a circuit.
Pressure Transducers are incredible reliable sensors in pump station applications and are unaffected by many of the challenging conditions that impact other level sensors.
Radar level sensors do have a high cost, but they are extremely versatile and are suitable for many difficult operating conditions.
Today we’ll be covering ultrasonic transducers, a reliable level sensing method that uses acoustic signals to determine levels inside the wet well.
Level sensors are components that are included in nearly every pump station, and they are integral to the operation of the pumping system. There are many different level sensor technologies available, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and ideal water conditions.
