Details

Proven Technology with Innovations
The FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV sensor is a fully integrated area velocity flow sensor, and combines proven pressure depth and continuous wave Doppler velocity technologies with innovative sensor level signal processing for improved sensor accuracy and stability.

Velocity Sensor
The sensor utilizes continuous wave Doppler velocity technology, which has been proven in open channel flow metering applications for over 25 years. The sensor utilizes Progressive Spectral Analyzer (PSA) technology, which improves the quality of the signal, accuracy of the readings, and reduces the power consumption on the batteries.

Level Sensor

The pressure level sensor utilizes a 100% piesoresisitive ceramic pressure sensor, which has been utilized for the first time in the sewer flow metering industry. This technology offers improvements over the previously used pressure depth measurement technologies through a reinforced structure. This enhancement provides more durability in the hostile and corrosive sewer environment. The ceramic sensor ensures high linearity across the entire range of measurement and reduces the effect of Hysteresis (sensor drift). The sensor-to-water interface is a unique Teflon protected membrane that will not puncture or foul from debris in the water.

Signal Processing in the Sensor

The sensor is uniquely designed to process the primary sensor signals within inches of the signal source. This means that all signal processing power is applied to producing the best measurement possible and not utilized to separate “good” signal from electric noise introduced by the sensor cable. The sensor delivers the processed measurements to the data logger over industry standard RS-485 serial communication using Modbus Communication Protocol (an industry standard communication protocol).

Fit for Duty

The sensor cable is the smallest diameter cable available in the market today. This is important because a smaller cable minimizes the potential to obstruct flow in the pipe. Additionally, thinner cable is easier to manage during installation and maintenance. The cable is terminated with an industry proven connector to ensure no moisture interferes with the transmission of data.

Rounded pebbles give evidence of past flowing water on Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover has found pebbles that appear to have been rounded by streamflow, according to a release from University of California Davis. Experts say the finding represents the first on-site evidence of sustained flowing water on Mars. The rounded pebbles discovered are only known to form when transported through water over long distances. Their discovery supports theories that the red planet could once have supported life. The smooth rocks were found between the north rim of the planet’s Gale Crater and the base of Mount Sharp, a mountain inside the crater. Researchers say they chose Gale Crater for study because there was a sediment deposit there that typically requires water to form.

Study suggests small dams have more negative effects than large dams

A recent study suggests that small dams may have a greater impact on rivers than large dams, as they divert more water away from rivers, according to a press release from the American Geophysical Union . Researchers from Oregon State University studied China’s Nu River, which is home to a variety of dams in the river main stem and its tributaries.  In total, 31 small dams were evaluated and compared to four large dams in the main river stem. The research team compared dam impacts to habitat loss, river channel lengths, land affected and landslide risks among 14 total factors.  They found small dams had a greater negative impact in nine out of 14 categories. Small dams, used to divert water to hydropower stations, had some of the most profound impacts on rivers.

FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV flow meter resists ragging

For professionals who use meters like the FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV to measure water flowing through mains or sewers, the job is often a dirty one. As a dirty job, there’s even a slang term for all the debris - organic or not - that gets stuck to cables and other devices during deployment: “ragging.” One feature on the new PSA-AV flow meter may help some professionals by cutting down on the sticky debris. “Our sensor cable is the smallest diameter cable manufactured on these sensors today,” said Kelly Abercrombie, director of sales and marketing at FloWav. The smaller cable also makes the PSA-AV easier to install. Larger cables can restrict where sensors can be placed, as well as catch more debris that can tangle up and absorb more interference from flowing water or wastewater.
