Different Types of Water Meters


To measure the water pressure and its amount, water meters are used. They typically record water usage in gallons or cubic feet. Some meters also track the total volume of water used over time. Let’s take a look at some of the types of water meters.

COD/BOD/Ammonia Analyzer

The online cod bod analyzer is designed to continuously monitor water quality, specifically measuring Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), and Ammonia levels. It's essential for wastewater treatment plants and industrial processes where monitoring these parameters is crucial for environmental compliance and process control. The online capability means it can provide real-time data, enabling immediate responses to changes in water quality. These analyzers are vital in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and food processing, where water quality directly impacts product quality and safety.


Multiparameter Water Quality Meters

The Multiparameter water quality meters from Boqu Instruments are versatile instruments that monitor pH, conductivity, oxygen dissolution, turbidity, and more. It's ideal for field applications, offering portability and ease of use. This meter is particularly useful for environmental monitoring, aquaculture, and water treatment facilities. Its multiparameter capabilities allow for comprehensive water quality assessment with a single device, making it a cost-effective and efficient solution for regular monitoring.


Residual Chlorine Meter

Residual chlorine meter specializes in measuring the residual chlorine in water, an essential parameter for ensuring safe drinking water and bathing water in pools. Residual chlorine measures the effectiveness of the disinfection process, and maintaining the right levels is crucial for preventing microbial contamination. This meter is typically used in municipal water treatment, swimming pool maintenance, and food and beverage industries where chlorine is used as a disinfectant.


Online Turbidity Meter

The online turbidity meter is designed to measure the turbidity of water – the cloudiness or haziness caused by particles. Turbidity affects aesthetics and health. The online turbidity meter is essential in water treatment plants for monitoring the effectiveness of filtration and sedimentation processes. It's also used in environmental monitoring to assess the impact of erosion and runoff on water bodies.


Portable Water Quality Meter

Portable water quality meters are designed to test various water quality parameters on-site. These meters are versatile, easy to use, and essential for field applications like environmental monitoring, geological surveying, and emergency response. They can measure parameters like pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and temperature, providing immediate insights into the water's quality. Their portability makes them ideal for on-the-spot analysis in remote locations or quick assessments in different parts of a water treatment facility.


Industrial Flow Meter

The industrial flow meter aims to measure water flow rates within industrial processes and systems. Flow meters are important in manufacturing, chemical processing, and power generation, which require monitoring precise flow rates for efficient operation control systems. Ultrasonic, electromagnetic, or turbine water flow meters suitable for specific applications of these meters are available. Industrial flow meters give correct information that assists industries in the efficient utilization of resources, leakage detection, and adherence to governing standards.


Industrial Level Meter

The industrial level meter indicates the water depth in tanks and reservoirs. These devices are essential in agriculture, water treatment, and wastewater management, where level control plays a major role in water resource management and avoidance of overflows and under-supplies. The meters are based on ultrasonic, radar, and float sensors that give very accurate measurements of levels. Level meters for industrial use support self-control in technological procedures, avoid equipment failure, and save water.


Industrial Pressure Instrument

The industrial pressure instrument includes pressure gauges used in industrial pressure measuring systems and water lines. Accurate pressure monitoring should continue to sustain high operation levels and the system's safety. They are of different types, such as pressure gauges, transmitters, and switches, and they exist oil and gas sectors, chemical processing, and water supply. Industry pressure meters are used for monitoring real-time pressure, which can help the operators detect leaks, abnormalities, and any changes in pressure, thus preventing catastrophes and maximizing system efficiency.


Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Ultrasonic flow meters employ two transducers that send and receive sound waves to measure the water's flow velocity in a pipe. When there is no flow, the frequency of the sound waves sent into the pipe and their reflections from the fluid remain constant. However, when the water flows, the frequency of the reflected waves changes. The meter's transmitter interprets these variations in wave frequency to calculate the flow rate. By knowing the pipe's cross-sectional area, the meter can accurately compute the total volume of water passing through.


These meters are highly durable because they lack mechanical parts and don't typically require recalibration. Additional advantages include minimal pressure loss, the ability to measure very low flow rates (as low as 0.1 liters per minute), over 98% accuracy, and versatile installation orientations. They are also not affected by air in the system or the reversal of water flow.
