WAT water automation technology FOGRod pump station

Another liquid level detection choice to dramatically increase pump station resilience

FACT: Not one level detection technology is suitable for ALL water and wastewater level detection applications, that would be nice, but in practical reality it simply isn't the case.

  • Ball floats are fine to detect high effluent level however they are notoriously unreliable for low level alarming and pump control.

  • Ultrasonic or radar technologies can be a good option but a downside is they're expensive and complicated to set up plus some sites simply don't suit non-contact technologies. For example unreliable level readings are often encountered in small, narrow, deep or cluttered wastewater wet wells particularly at high level  (risk of spill) or low level (pump run on and reduced pump life). Also foaming is a problem as can give false level readings again causing pump run on. 

  • Stainless steel rods with witches hats are very expensive to install (often require confined space entry), difficult to clean and maintain, inflexible and limited switching points and foul easily. 

 

FOGRod - simple and easy option

  • Water and wastewater liquid level detection using multi-electrode conductivity sensors

  • 10 year warranty, virtually unbreakable design

  • 3, 5 and 10 electrode versions available.  

  • Water and wastewater level detection for ultra-reliable monitoring and/or pump control. Wastewater, de-watering, bore holes, storm tanks, culverts etc 

  • Simple and easy - no complicated programming or configuration, no laptop required  ​

  • EASY, SAFE INSTALLATION. Simply fix bracket, lower, hang and connect, NO REQUIREMENT TO ENTER WELL

  • Only 1 cable to pull through ducting, unlike a 4 float system

  • Unaffected by fat, grease or foaming, works in heavy sludge

  • No moving parts or complexity​

  • FOGRod controllers for easy control, new panels or retrofit

    • 10 electrode FOGRod controller - LIT100 Liquid Indicator Controller

    • 2 electrode FOGRod ON-OFF controller - LLR-240 conductive liquid level relay 

Use FOGRod to help eliminate pollution and flooding, expensive vacuum tanker visits, wasted energy and early failure associated with unsuitable technology being installed for the particular application.

'The best pump in the world is only as good as it's control system'

 

FOGRod is an ultra-reliable conductive liquid level detection device designed specifically for water industry applications. Ever used a MultiTrode probe? FOGRod is simply an improved version developed by ex-MultiTrode Engineers who left MultiTrode after they were acquired by Xylem in 2013.

Simply designed to be ultra-reliable to increase resilience when monitoring the level of conductive liquids such as water and wastewater effluent

 

How does FOGRod work?

ELECTRICALLY ULTRA SAFE SYSTEM

< 12V AC and milli-amps of current level detection 

 

10 x Electrode FOGRod + Liquid Indicator Transmitter (LIT) 

  • LIT designed specifically for use with FOGRod

  • Bright 10 LED level indication

  • 10 (YES 10) SPCO relay outputs - 1 per electrode

  • 24V DC supply MAX 4W so easily battery backed to provide crucial remote site information such as effluent level during mains fail events

  • A 4-14mA output (1mA per sensor) to transmit level information to a PLC, SCADA etc

  • 2 failsafe relay alarm outputs (cable cut, wiring error, cleaning required)

  • Wide sensitivity range (up to 200K Ohms) to extend use to very low conductivity water applications   

  • FOGRod and LIT directly replaces old products such as the MultiTrode probe and MTIC
