In The Know On Flow

A Note From Dave Brown


WEFTEC 2015 Chicago is almost here! I am super excited for this upcoming conference and my final travel arrangements, commitments and "foodie" stops are taking place. I am a BIG fan of the Chicago and New Orleans rotation due to their increased attendance numbers, which leads to excellent networking opportunities.

I have been a member of the WEF Collection Systems Committee (CSC) for a number of years. The CSC is growing with new members, new committees and a "new" mentorship program to get newbies started on the right foot. If you have ever considered joining the committee, now is an exciting time. I recommend you attend the new member orientation and mentoring program on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from 9:00-10:00am at S106, South Building - Level 5 in McCormick Place. I have accepted a leadership role to help jump-start this mentoring program and would love to see you there.

If you can't attend the orientation, please be sure to attend the Collection Systems Committee meeting on Sunday, September 27 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. There will also be a meet-and-greet (Mentorship Program) with subcommittee chairs following the CSC meeting, where you will have the opportunity to sign-up for projects and subcommittees.

Did you know that, year after year, the Collection Systems' tracks at WEFTEC have the highest attendance and overall scores? Every year submitted abstracts, papers and presentations are heavily scrutinized and analyzed for quality, results and new ideas, ensuring excellent presentations for you to benefit from. And here's a little tip: don't leave WEFTEC early, as the best papers are saved for last, typically on Wednesday.

And of course, please stop by to visit the Hach Flow Team at Booth 3631 in the Exhibit Hall. We'd love to see you.

Here we go...

Win a FH950 Portable Flow Meter!

We're going big this year at WEFTEC! If you stop by our booth (#3631) to say "Hi," we'll enter you into our Grand Prize drawing to win a Hach FH950 Portable Flow Meter. That's a $6000 retail value! We've always said every truck should have one of these incredibly convenient handheld meters, either for selecting optimal sites for metering or for providing redundant verification of your flow data. Now you have the opportunity to take one home for free. We're even including the highest end sensor it comes with, which automatically captures both velocity and depth, storing the data in the meter for easy download back at the office. So make sure you stop by the booth and get entered to win.

What else will be going on at our booth? Lots. For starters, if you missed our fully functioning flow loop at last year's WEFTEC in New Orleans you'll have the opportunity to catch it in Chicago. See all of our sensors up-close-and-in-person in a "live" flow monitoring environment, including the FLO-DAR, an ultrasonic down-looking sensor, and a submerged AV sensor. Plus, you can see how easy it is to program our state-of-the-art FL900 data logger and wirelessly view your data online in FSDATA. This display is as hands-on as you can get...without confined space entry!

We hope you can join us. Remember, booth #3631. We'll see you there.

Last month to save big on wireless loggers!

Between now and September 30th, Hach is continuing to offer a trade-in discount for wireless flow loggers.* For every logger you trade in, regardless of manufacturer, we'll give you $1200 off on the purchase of a brand new, wireless FL900 Flow Logger purchase. So if your current wireless loggers have gone, or are going, obsolete due to AT&T 2G Modem turndowns, now's your time to replace them with new loggers at a huge cost savings. Or, if you don't currently have wireless loggers but want to experience the convenience and efficiency of wireless, it's a perfect time to upgrade. We'll accept non-wireless loggers in the trade-in.

From 3G wireless communication with free data hosting to longer battery life, the Hach FL900 Series Flow Logger is designed to reduce monitoring costs, increase efficiency, and provide better data 24/7 with less hassle than you ever thought possible. And with the FL900's included software tool, FSDATA® Online Data Manager, necessary site visits are reduced dramatically, giving you more time for data analysis and solving challenges.

Contact your local Hach Flow sales representative today to learn about the 3G FL900 logger and take advantage of our $1200 discount.

*Wireless service only available in the USA & Canada. Offer good through 9/30/15.

Did You Know?

Expanding your metering network costs less than you might think.

Too often municipalities are unable to actively monitor all areas within their collection system simply due to budget constraints. The very thought of "flying blind" like that simply makes us nervous, which is exactly why we've developed a reduced-cost solution to expand your monitoring network without breaking your budget. Check out the Hach Level-Alarming Network Extension which allows you to use a ballasted down-looking ultrasonic sensor to efficiently monitor more locations within your network. Simply use the highly accurate FLO-DAR in your most critical locations, and then this economical solution at secondary locations. It's a great way to see and know more about the health of your system, even on a tight budget.
