Innovative Solutions for New Flow Measurement Regulations
Explore Advanced Approaches: Enhancing Flow and Level Measurements for Regulatory Compliance
Time & Location
30 Nov 2023, 09:30 – 16:00
The Ark Conference Centre, Dinwoodie Dr, Basingstoke RG24 9NN, UK
About the event
This workshop, sponsored by UDlive, will focus on the techniques needed to comply with the revised requirements from OFWAT and the Environment Agency for flow and spill monitoring, encompassing abstraction, effluent flow, and EDMs. With an emphasis on precision and adherence to updated MCERTS standards, meters are now required to deliver measurements of utmost accuracy, with operational uncertainty no greater than ±8% for flow measurement and ±5mm for EDM alarms.
The event's agenda will be tailored to accommodate a diverse audience, including regulatory bodies, water utility companies, suppliers, and other experts. We aim to foster a collaborative environment that nurtures a deeper understanding of the latest techniques, technologies, and best practices in the realm of flow and level measurements.
In light of evolving regulations, our workshop will be an invaluable platform for the exchange of insights and solutions. Join us in delving into the forefront of innovative advancements in flow and level measurements, particularly within challenging environmental contexts.
