Science and Enterprise Park company in revolutionary trial to meter wastewater

An innovative way of revolutionising how sewerage services could be measured is being trialled by Wessex Water, following a collaboration with Dynamic Flow Technologies Limited, from Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Parks.

The project sees the installation of the world’s first wastewater meter capable of accurately measuring the smallest of flows in part filled sewer pipes. It uses non-invasive microwave technology to measure flows as low as 0.02 litres/second – the tiniest trickle in the invert of the pipe – up to virtually full bore flows. Dynamic Flow Technologies has provided product development with grants from the Technology Strategy Board and is now supporting further research at the University through a doctoral sponsorship in to next generation meters.
