MS-6 Flowmeter Provides Solutions to the Water Treatment Market

Blue-White’s MS-6 Ultrasonic Flowmeter is an innovative new addition to flowmeter offerings in the water and wastewater treatment industries.

The MS-6 flowmeter uses transit time ultrasonic technology to provide a broad flow range. This technology provides an immediate solution to a problem the industry has struggled with for years.

Industry professionals require extremely accurate measurement and monitoring of flow rates. The MS-6 satisfies both requirements. It has measurable flowrates down to 0.15 gallons per hour and up to 158.5 gallons per hour. Blue-White’s MS-6 flowmeter offers one of the lowest flow rates on the market.

Because Blue-White Industries’ MS-6 provides the necessary capabilities and desired features for water treatment plants, and is very cost-effective, it’s an excellent alternative to electromagnetic flowmeters for monitoring flow.   

Features of the MS-6 include a 4-20mA output, frequency output, and high and low flow setpoints that can be utilized for no flow alarms. The flowmeter also has numerous system warning functions like air bubble or empty pipe problems, which are crucial to operations.

Alarms for a no-flow condition is very important at plants, as this could indicate there is a block in the chemical line or that the chemical tank is empty. While chemical controllers can provide this feedback, it takes time for the system to register a large drop in pH, and for the controller to signal an alarm. The MS-6 communicates these problems instantaneously with the SCADA control system. This capability helps ensure minimal downtime and loss of production at the plant.

Accurately monitoring the chemical being dosed into the system is crucial to ensure effective water treatment. An overdose or underdose of chemical can adversely affect the quality of the treated water and leads to wasting chemical, which has a financial impact.

With the high accuracy and functionality of the MS-6 flowmeter, plant operators and SCADA personnel will be provided feedback to optimize production. While Blue-White Industries offers a broad range of dosing pumps, the MS-6 excels with both Blue-White’s pumps as well as those of other manufacturers.

With PVDF and PEEK wetted components, NSF 61 approval, and the necessary features to accurately monitor chemical dosing, the MS-6 is a good fit for drinking water applications.

Heyward Incorporated, a leading manufacturer’s representative of water and wastewater process equipment, has a branch in Charlotte, North Carolina, that currently utilizes the MS-6 flowmeter. Heyward was using the gear flowmeter in a 20% cationic filter aid polymer neat feed application. Before installing the MS-6 flowmeter, Heyward was experiencing gear flowmeter failure. 

With the easy installation of the MS-6, there has been no flowmeter failure and the meter readings have consistently been accurate based on draw downs. All water treatment plants could benefit from the many innovative features and functions of the MS-6 flowmeter.
