Weir Boxes

Weir Boxes

Water management systems depend on different factors, but an accurate measurement is a priority. Depending on the type of water management system you run, there are many flow measurement tools at your disposal. 

However, the cheapest and most effective is the open channel system and weir boxes are the durable and precise measuring tools that allow your operation to gauge the channel flow in the easiest way possible.

First, what is a Weir Box and how does it work? Weirs direct open channel flow for measurement purposes. A Weir Box usually contains a Weir plate with a 'V' notch that allows you to take accurate flow sample measurements. Installing a Weir Box in your open channel flow system allows you to achieve the desired results with ease. The most significant advantages of weir boxes are: 

  1. Their design is simple and easy to use, allowing for precise measurements. 
  2. They are adept at low flow operations. 

Indicators of a need for a Weir Box depend on the setup and conditions of your operation. Weirs may not be the best choice for closed channel flows or those with high water volumes. Open channel low flow systems, however, require Weirs for consistent and accurate measurement. Another consideration is durability. 

Weir flow measurement devices are rugged and inexpensive, making them the right choice for harsh environment operations. All that matters when selecting a Weir Box is whether you want a reliable, accurate measuring tool. If so, Weir Boxes are right for you. 

Weir Boxes come in many materials. Fiberglass is a good material for weir boxes because it is strong and durable, and resistant to the elements. Choosing a fiberglass weir box means getting a tool that will serve your operation reliably. 

A flow meter or a Weir Box are the best ways to measure open channels. Weir Boxes offer the measurements needed to control the water system efficiently. 

To install a Weir Box on your water management system, you need to find a  company that fits that bill perfectly. TRACOM offers every kind of water management products you need. Contact Advance Instruments to get more information about TRACOM products.

Sampler Selection Considerations for COVID-19 Tracking

Sampler Selection Considerations

Wastewater-based epidemiology methods have shown the potential to detect COVID-19 in wastewater samples well in advance of an outbreak compared to the testing of individuals.

By using portable samplers, hot spots are easily detected by taking aliquots daily at sensitive locations.

Teledyne ISCO is a leading manufacturer and supplier of rugged, reliable wastewater sampling and monitoring instruments.

All-in-One Non-Metallic Diaphragm Seal with Pressure Transmitter/Switch

All-in-One Non-Metallic Diaphragm Seal with Pressure Transmitter/Switch

NOSHOK is a high-quality manufacturer of pressure, level, temperature, force measurement instruments, needle and manifold valves transducers, transmitters, gauges, and valves.

NOSHOK is introducing it's new electronic indicating pressure transmitter with two alarms, protected by a corrosion-resistant, chemically inert PTFE diaphragm seal with a single pressure connection.

The device is ideal for water, wastewater & chemical feed applications and is a tested and proven solution used in many municipalities. In many situations, it replaces the heavy analog gauge with a diaphragm seal and mechanical switch, commonly used for pump shut-off protection. It offers fewer possible leak paths, no moving parts, and a high level of repeatability, durability, compact size, and lightweight.

Keep Your Campus Safe by Catching COVID-19 Quickly

Campus Samplers for Covid Monitoring

The recently demonstrated ability to reliably identify and measure COVID-19 genetic material in untreated wastewater is one of the most exciting advances in Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE). This advance has put a powerful new tool in the hands of those trying to defeat the virus, giving schools the ability to detect potential outbreaks weeks earlier than conventional population monitoring.

Schools using wastewater-based epidemiology methods have shown the potential to detect COVID-19 in wastewater samples well in advance of an outbreak compared to the testing of individual students. A means of avoiding complete campus shutdowns is through the use of portable samplers. Hot spots are easily detected using portable samplers, taking aliquots daily at sensitive locations.

Teledyne ISCO is the leading manufacturer of sampling and analytical instruments used to collect wastewater samples that researchers use to predict COVID-19 flareups through a "Virus Radar" system.

The two most popular Teledyne ISCO samplers on campuses today are the portable Avalanche with powered refrigeration that is perfect for genetic material preservation and the Glacier with its 12-volt deep-cycle battery that provides 48 + hours of unpowered refrigerated composite sampling.
