The new Asset Management Period (AMP) in the UK water industry introduces a requirement to monitor any spills going into a storm tank – regularly referred to by those working in the sector as UMON3.
One element of this requirement is ensuring that all flow is recorded to a specific standard, so that water utilities are confident in the reliability of their flow readings.
MCERTS provides a framework of standards for the safe and reliable monitoring of liquid flow and is widely used by those working in the UK water industry to ensure that organisations are working towards the same standards, to protect sewage networks and local environments.
Pulsar Measurement has a long and experienced history with MCERTS and two products have already achieved this certification, including the FlowCERT and DUET twin transducer, and the FlowCERT Lite and dB3 with double sunshields. The firm is now announcing the addition of the Ultra 4 and dB3 with double sunshields to its list of MCERT-certified products.
The Ultra 4 and dB3 with double sunshields have been future proofed for the purpose of UMON3 and UMON4 in the UK, and are specifically designed to monitor stormwater overflows.
The sophistication and advanced features of this new and improved unit allows water companies across the UK to comply with the new directive in a small, compact, and easy to use controller, enabling it to be a small but crucial building block in a much bigger development.
The non-contacting nature of the Ultra 4 and ultrasonic technology means there is little to NO maintenance required for this system and helps make life easy for utility companies across the nation.
