Cardiff Bay Wetlands Project - Minisonic 600

Background:
The Wetlands project was part of the Cardiff Bay development project which was to create a wetland area to attract wildlife in Cardiff Bay and also provide an area of scientific interest.To do this required the building of a dam to stop the tidal area from drying out. This had the effect of raising the water table in the local area and it was this that needed constant draining. This was achieved by installing 12 boreholes with automatic level monitoring, pumping, metering and logging. The meters were selected for ease of installation operation and maintenance.
The Problem:
Low Maintenance and infrequent calibrations were pre-requisite along with ease of installation, 4-20 mA outputs and alarm functions.
The Solution:
The Minisonic range of flowmeters were selected for their range-ability and ease of installation. All pipework had been installed so clamp-on meters were selected for the retrofit capability. Flows were not interrupted or by-passed and the installation could be easily checked by the in-built diagnostics.
