For 115 years, Badger Meter has offered innovative flow metering and control solutions for smart water management, smart buildings and smart industrial processes. The acquisition of s::can GmbH, a leading provider of online water quality monitoring solutions, adds real-time water quality parameters to our capabilities and enhances the scope of actionable data for our customers to help measure and protect resources for a smarter world. The combined solutions from Badger Meter and s::can offer technology that measures both the quantity and quality of liquids.
Water utility billing has transitioned from manual meter reads to automated, two-way communication with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems. Now, water quality monitoring has transitioned to online and real-time collection, monitoring and reporting—allowing for greater insight and easier operation.
Through digital sensor technology, online and inline water quality monitoring can detect the physical, organic and inorganic properties of water, such as pH, chlorine and turbidity. By sending a beam of light through a sample of water and measuring the absorption, a detector is able to determine water quality parameters without using any chemicals or reagents. This method is fast and affordable.
Because these products are digital and intelligent, they check their health every second and can communicate with their operator. They have no moving parts, so the products require minimal maintenance.
