Monitoring Leakage in Landfill Leachate Control Systems

Landfill leachate monitoring requires a flow meter with no moving parts and minimal maintenance such as a Magflow meter

Landfill leachate is a aggressive liquid, typically carrying debris, which needs to be managed, controlled and removed to prevent groundwater pollution. Such applications require a flow meter with no moving parts and minimal maintenance. A UK landfill site has installed 2“ diameter, PTFE-lined Magflux A magnetic flow meters with remote transmitters on each secondary discharge pipeline and the cumulative volume of leachate is compared with the total flow through the primary leachate collection line, indicating any leakage.

BENEFIT FROM THE FOLLOWING MAGFLUX A MAGNETIC FLOW METER FEATURES:

  • No moving parts resulting in obstructionless flow measurement
  • Handles flows with high level of solids
  • Relatively short straight-run requirements
  • Rugged, solid, welded-steel body
  • Signal amplifier inside flow sensor
  • Pressure up to 250 bar
  • Various connection types & liner materials: hard rubber, soft rubber, PTFE, special upon request

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

  • Water and sewage plants
  • Landfill leachate control
  • Chemicals and pharmaceuticals
  • Mining, cement and mineral materials
  • Liquid food and beverage industry
  • Pulp and paper industry
