An Aluminium Refinery in Gladstone, Queensland approached us to assist with monitoring of their process water feed to the main plant. The volume of water consumption was currently monitored and billed by the supplier of the water. The refinery does not have direct access to the meters and only receive a quarterly bill. They wanted to ascertain daily flows and identify specific consumption by production area.
Currently the site has multiple separate inlets metered from mag flow meters which are off site.
Initial diagnostics indicated scale build up on the inside of the pipe.
