CASE STUDY - RAW WATER APPLICATION

UK ENVIRONMENT AGENCY PUMP STATION RESILIENCE BOOST PROJECT

FOGRod & LIT (Liquid Indicator Transmitter) retrofitted in pump station in under 4 hours

 

  • A full redundant system using completely different and very simple technology to sanity check the primary control system

  • 10 relay outputs available for redundant pump control

  • 4-20mA output to compare level reading via SCADA

  • Uses only 4 Watts of power so a low cost and compact 500VA Schneider Easy UPS installed to give approx 8 hours of back-up in the event of power failure to keep the level reading visible on telemetry

  • Redundant failsafe high level alarm

EXAMPLES OF EASY AUTOMATION - FOGRod

CASE STUDY - WASTEWATER APPLICATION
UK WATER UTILITY LOW LEVEL ALARM & BACK-UP PUMP CONTROL


Ball floats - Notoriously unreliable for pump control in wastewater with heavy loading of fat and rags

Non-contact technologies  - Ultrasonics / RADAR etc. expensive, complex to set up and not always suitable

The FACT IS NO one technology fits every APPLICATION

FOGRod PROVIDES A VERY SIMPLE AND ULTRA-RELIABLE ALTERNATIVE OR FULL REDUNDANT SOLUTION TO EXISTING TECHNOLOGIES
 

 

PROBLEM

Ragging, tangling ball floats = CALL OUTS, BURNT OUT PUMPS & POLLUTION
