Water Flow Measurement in Remote Locations

with Portable Water Flow Meters

When working to control processes and effluents, it is sometimes necessary to

measure flow though pipes in remote locations. There are times that the location

isn't so much remote as it might be difficult to reach, or somewhere even within the

building, but with no power source near the place that flow must be checked on.

Portable flow meters are used in various

circumstances and can provide many benefits

over fixed flow meters. While there are

circumstances where a fixed unit will be better

suited (such as when data logging is necessary),

the portable instruments are often being put into

play to bring cost savings and flexibility.

The usual devices used for flow measurement are

fixed flow meters that are inline, meaning the

fluid actually flows thought the flow meter itself.

This can be impractical in many instances. These instruments require power

continuously and require significant downtime for installation. There are

circumstances where a fixed flow meter is more appropriate, of course. When

readings must be taken frequently, it is best to have a meter that is always there, set

up and running. If the situation is such that logging the data is required, then a fixed

until will be required.

There are some processes that should sometime

monitor water flow in point far from a building or

power source. An example of this would be

checking on the amount of (hopefully processed and

clean) wastewater exiting the processing facility at

the very end of the process. This should be as it

exits into a municipal system, or into an outdoor

reservoir. Another example would be the flow from

the top of an indoor column, where there is no


The solutions to those problems is with portable

water flow meters. These instruments are hand-help and powered with long-lasting

batteries. They can be manually transported to the location where flow must be

measured. Readings can be taken wherever needed. This is also true of the places

indoors where power is not available.

Another benefits

are the smaller size of the units. Often, liquid flow must

be measured in places where there is little room for

equipment. The best portable water

flow meter is much easier to squeeze into

those tight spaces. There are also fewer wires

to deal with in an installation process.

Many portable flow meters are also non-

invasive. They can measure liquid flow

though ultrasonic means. There can be great

advantages to this. Flow measurement is very

and as the pipes do not have to be cut into in order to install

the device, there is no need for downtime in the process to begin measuring. The



savings, in terms of the manpower to handle all the plumbing and electrical work

involved in a fixed meter installation, can be significant considering the cost of

stopping production of a product for an extended period of time.

You can find further examples in which portable clamp-on flow meters have been

utilized at online. You'll learn about the use of ultrasonic, portable flow meters as

there are numerous case studies and examples of successful use. For example,

they've been used successfully at a school in Dagenham, which was having an

extension built. As a government-funded project, it was required to do a full

evaluation on the building's energy use, in order to minimize the environmental

impact. There were numerous locations where measurement of the heating system

was required. The energy consultants opted for a portable flow meter to save all the

costs of multiple installations and devices.
