American Sensor Technologies (AST) has published a booklet that describes its position and pressure transmitter capabilities for the water sector.
The booklet concentrates on four application areas, namely, desalination and sub-sea equipment, water pumps, level monitoring for wells and sewage, and filtration monitoring. The page on sub-sea and desalination dwells on packaging and concerns regarding media compatibility of a sensor. The section on water pumps deals with the key factors to be taken into account during the measurement of water pressure. The section on well and sewage lift station offers an overview of the working mechanism of hydrostatic level sensors along with a diagrammatic representation. The filtration monitoring section gives a lucid illustration of how a filter is monitored using a differential pressure sensor and also includes an example of the calculation.
The six-page booklet concentrates on specific products of AST used in each of the four applications, and thus aids the reader in finding a solution.
