Pulsar's global ultrasonic capability the key to major Australian contract

As the principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services throughout the state of Western Australia, Water Corp. manages more than 100 wastewater treatment plants and over 1,100 pump stations across an area more than a quarter of the size of the US.

After trials and extensive experience with a wide variety of both contacting and non-contacting alternatives, Water Corp. has chosen UK manufacturer Pulsar Process Measurement to be a preferred supplier of level measurement and control requirements.

The corporation will use hundreds of Pulsar's specialist non-contacting ultrasonic sensors and controllers, with technical and sales support from Pulsar's regional office and Australian distributor.

Since 2012, Water Corp. has installed over 200 Pulsar ultrasonic units, and has recently purchased a further 346 to install throughout its Perth Metropolitan network. Pulsar's Australian distributor Bintech is supplying both equipment and know-how through its Western Australian representative John Hoskins of Gateway Technical Services.

With such an extensive network operating in the often extreme conditions of Australia, equipment has to work reliably. Water Corp. undertook a detailed investigation of equipment in use throughout its sites, reviewing and comparing performance.
