Flow meter installed with minimum disruption

13 April, 2012

When a pump station in northern Sydney required the installation of a flow meter to an existing pipeline, the downtime had to be kept to a minimum to avoid disruption of the water supply. The new section with the flow meter was put in place and connected to the remaining main line with two Straub Flex 2H 1296.0 mm pipe couplings. Because the Straub pipe couplings have a very short installation time, disruption to the water supply was kept to a minimum.

Safeguarding Wellington’s water supplies

27 April, 2011

The reliable provision of clean water is essential for any large population. It is now commonplace for water treatment plants to run autonomously and, for this to be effective, a reliable process control system is needed to supervise plant activities. Through the 1980s, distributed control system (DCS) architectures were widely used to manage these processes. However, many of these systems are now reaching the end of their design lives. Consequently they suffer from declining availability of spares and waning access to technical assistance.
