Patent for Sale:Sewer - The Last Unmetered Utility
Sewer systems are the last unmetered public utility. Sewer systems are also the least profitable public utilities. Sewer metering can increase system efficiencies and increase system billing revenues.
Primary Application of the Technology
- Wastewater utilities
- Environmental compliance
The Problem Solved by the Technology
Other metering technologies capable of monitoring wastewater flows are electronic in nature and require large amounts of power for continuous operation. Our technology is very low power and can be battery operated for years on a single "C" cell size battery.
How the Technology Solves the Problem
1. The first metering technology capable of long term sewer metering.
2. No external power requirements
3. Superior flow measurement in no flow and low flow conditions
4. Scalable to meter flow amounts of any size desired.
5. Will not cause system backups or blockages.
6. Field proven with over five years of actual usage in the target market.
One day all buildings will have a sewer service meter - just as they now all have a water meter. This technology is a prime candidate for such a use.
