Flow discharge monitoring

The airport from Zürich uses Flo-Sonic and and Hybrid flow meter systems to monitor its water discharges for environmental compliance
Flow discharge monitoring

EMV-500 & FLO-SONIC OCFM (hybrid flow meter system)

Zurich Airport has installed 2 flowmeter systems to fulfill it's needs to measure the quantity of cleaned waste water flowing into the Glatt and monitor the impact of its de-icing infrastructure on the environment. Zürich Airport installed one Flo-Sonic OCFM with 2 paths and one Hybrid flowmeter. The medium contaminated fraction of the de-icing sewage (40% of the water volume) is irrigated through a spray system on suitable grass land at the airport. The waste water is cleaned through the infiltration process. The cleaned waste water is led through the drainage system into the Glatt river. The Flo-Sonic OCFM and Hybrid flowmeter systems are used to quantify the waste water flowing from the drainage system into the Glatt river.
