Flow measurements with Iris® Diaphragm Control Valves in the test facility for hydraulic engineering and water management in Obernach (GER)

Stroemungssimulation_TUM_Obernach

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) – Faculty of Civil Engineering and Surveying – operates a test center for hydraulic engineering and water management in Obernach near lake Walchensee in the German Alps. Here, geographic models of rivers and streams are simulated in order to optimize the impact of dams and water courses on the flow behavior.
At this hydraulic test center students can analyse and test the flow behavior during their temporary stay. The three flow channels, into which various hydraulic models can be fitted, are loaded evenly with water. For a precise control of the incoming flow, three Egger Iris® Diaphragm Control Valves with electric actuator type Auma are in operation.

    In our company Surcis (www.surcis.com) we are developping a system to measure online the oxygen uptake rate in the bioological reactor of a wastewater treatment plant. For that purpose, we are in need to get an analogical signal (e.g. 4-20 mA) proportional to the air-flow (m3/h) delivered in a determined zone of the biological reactor.
    My question: Is it posible to install one air fow-meter, provided with a analigic output, in the outlet of the IRIS valve ?
    Thank you.

    Dear Emilio,
    thank you for your post. The actuators mounted on our Iris Flor Control Valves can be customised (4-20 mA, device net, profibus etc.). We have thousands of installed valves for aeration flow control in biological tanks of WWTPs. Our sales team in Spain will have the pleasure to consult you.
