Flow Monitoring System – EPG Product Highlight


This week we feature EPG's Stand Alone Flow Meter Liquid Flow Monitoring System as our highlight of the week. This flow monitoring system/ flow meter provides continuous recording of liquid flow rate and total flow of groundwater, leachate and process water. The flow monitoring system is available in a wide variety of user friendly configurations.

There are four main reasons to monitor and measure flow :

• Custody Transfer (Buying or Selling Liquid)
• Information / Data
• Permit Compliance
• Monitor System Health


The Flow Meter employed in the FMSA Stand-Alone has the flexibility to work with a variety of flow sensors. For example :

Paddlewheel - Flowing liquid turns a paddlewheel, which sends out a pulse proportionate to flow rate. It can be used with pipe sizes from 1" to 14" with flow rates of 2 to 1,850 GPM.


Magnetic - The magnetic sensor measures flow by passing the liquid through a magnetic field and measuring the voltage produced. Since the induced voltage is proportional to the average flow velocity and the inside diameter of the pipe is known, the volumetric flow rate can be calculated. It can be used with any pipe size.


Ultrasonic - This sensor is attached to the outside of the pipe. It operates by transmitting a high frequency signal off of solids entrained in the liquid and reading the return signal. The detected frequency shift is proportional to the liquid velocity (Doppler Effect). It can be used with any pipe size.

Whether you require the inexpensive, ease and reliability of a paddlewheel flow sensore or the accuracy of a mag meter for custpody transfer and complaince, EPG has got various solutions for your needs. Find out more and read more on monitoring and controls systems .
