SmartCover Dual Sensor Provides More Accurate Sewer Spills Prevention

SmartCover® Systems released the SubSonic™ Dual Sensor as a standard configuration for their suite of wastewater technology solutions. The dual sensor extends visibility throughout the entire manhole from the bottom of the channel to the cover. Not only does the dual sensor provide customers with “full dynamic range” of manholes, it combines the accuracy of ultrasonic with the wide range of a pressure sensor. The SmartCover SubSonic Dual Sensor units started shipping Summer 2019.

“The release of SmartCover featuring a SubSonic Dual Sensor is a reflection of our dedication to helping wastewater operators prevent sewer spills. Our customers wanted full dynamic visibility of their manholes and we listened. In the past, when ultrasonic sensors submerged during heavy rainfall, operators were in the blind. SmartCover’s product engineers redesigned our solution to eliminate the deadband during a surcharge,” said Greg Quist, CEO of SmartCover.

The SubSonic Dual Sensor embeds a pressure sensor to monitor costly inflow & infiltration (I&I) during water surges, such as heavy rainfall events when groundwater and/or stormwater flows into a wastewater collection system. Dual sensors detect water level changes from the outset and continue to provide valuable data beyond the point when the ultrasonic sensor becomes submerged. The sealed submersion sensor is virtually maintenance-free, issues alarms when a manhole is reaching overflow levels, and allows wastewater operators to “triage” manholes to prevent sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs).
