Navigating the Flood of Advanced Metering Technology
Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, which places even more pressure on manufacturers to keep up with the latest advancements to “future-proof” their products. When making investments in technology it is critical to find solutions that will not only address today’s challenges, but also continue to be part of future solutions as well.
Advanced metering technology is designed to help utilities to provide safe, clean drinking water to their customers while accurately measuring their water use. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks; while fluidic oscillators and mag meters excel in specialized laboratory and industrial applications, ultrasonic meters pave the way for utilities to maximize their revenue, reduce maintenance costs, and save time while working safely. Investing in the right industry-leading technology for your needs will help you to future-proof your utility and maximize revenue year after year. Learn more at neptunetg.com.
2-Pole vs 4-Pole Motors for Submersible Solids Handling Pumps
Historically, in the United States there has been a broad tendency to specify 4-pole nominal 1,750 rpm motors for use on submersible solids handling pumps. Two-pole 3,500 nominal rpm motors are not only becoming widely accepted, they are increasingly the preferred solution for lower flow/higher head applications. There are a number of important considerations behind this change.
