WATER SUPPLY

INDUSTRY

Water supply is critical for many public, commercial and industrial activities. The diameters of water pipelines can go up to 300 inch (8 meter) and even larger. Due to the limited value of water per liter compared to other more valuable liquids like oil or chemicals, pricing of high accuracy inline flow meters for large diameters often becomes prohibitive for the business plan. Xsens can offer high accuracy clamp on flow meters which can be easily installed on the outside of the pipe. Our meters can also measure the salinity of water from the same meter.

Water lines can be in steel or plastic or other materials. Contact Xsens to confirm your applications for Xsens meters.

Examples of areas where high accuracy measurement of water flow rates are required or measure salinity in water can be:

Examples of areas where high accuracy measurement of water flow rates are required or measure salinity in water can be:

  • Hydroelectric power plants
  • Cooling stations in power plants
  • Irrigation
  • Potable water treatment
  • Industrial waste water
  • Water injection monitoring in oil and gas reservoirs
  • Fire systems
  • Water purification
  • Ballast systems
  • Boiler circulation
  • Reverse Osmosis making drinkable water out of seawater
  • Water transfer as traded commodity
  • And many more applications.
