Utilities Smart Monitoring:
IoT Flow Management

Aeris enables smart flow management for data, insights, and cost controls.

FLOW MONITORING BRIEF

The Need for Flow Management

Flow management is essential in many industries: agricultural, oil & gas, manufacturing. The ability to integrate IoT sensors into pipelines can result in significant cost reductions, more efficient operations, and an overall reduction in errors and downtime. Managing a flow, especially in manufacturing / industrial plants / transmission pipelines, can be business critical, many times defining success or failure. Aeris’ reliable cellular connectivity enables remote flow management anywhere in the world.

IoT-Connected Flow Management Benefits

Our customers manage and monitor their devices remotely, conserve resources, and leverage valuable data to improve their business operations. Here are some of the advantages of leveraging Aeris connectivity in your flow management system.

Monitor Flow from Anywhere

With an always-on network, you can oversee flow management devices anytime, anywhere while exercising precise operational control. Also get timely notifications for inefficient partial fills, emergency deliveries, or run outs.

Conserve Resources

Out of the 7.5 billion people on the planet, about a third have experienced problems of water scarcity. That percentage is rising. Not only is it important to conserve water as one of Earth’s resources, but it also helps companies save money when resources are managed properly.

Get Precise Usage Data

Where it was once common to pay flat fees for water, this is no longer the case. The necessity of usage data is growing, and utilities companies are relying on that data to ensure accurate billing. In addition, companies benefit from tapping into this precise data to improve operations.

Discover Leaks and Other Issues

With IoT smart monitoring, leaks can be discovered immediately, enabling quick fixes. In addition, smart flow management alerts you immediately if there is suspected unlawful extraction or other serious problems. By catching problems quickly, you’ll save time and money for better bottom-line results.

Adjust from Afar

Tap into data delivery networks and leverage applications that can watch, record, inform, and adjust data from pressure monitoring systems so as to drive costs down and improve business operations. With always-on monitoring, managing pressure and flow levels is safer and requires far less onsite labor.

Long-Lasting Solutions

Aeris is focused on providing future proven solutions―ones that are built from experience but will last well into the future―even with new devices and increased data loads.

Valuable Insights from Flow Monitoring

Flow monitors can be used to control and measure mass, volumetric, linear, or nonlinear flow rates. This might involve any liquid, a gas, or sewage on the move. By monitoring pipe attributes (product levels and location, flow rates, or treatment activity, to name a few) companies can enhance process efficiency, improve the operating environment, and reduce operational costs.

And flow monitors can come in all shapes, types, and sizes―differential pressure flow meters, positive displacement flow meters, velocity flow meters, mass flow meters, or open channel flow meters. But regardless of the type or location, gaining the vital data from the sensor is the bottom line. Getting that data quickly and cheaply is an ongoing business goal. Reliable connectivity is the key.

Aeris Connectivity Platform (ACP) provides multi-technology, multi-network connectivity solutions that deliver maximum value by combining the benefits of 2G / 3G / 4G (and soon-to-be 5G) cellular connectivity with the benefits of non-cellular technologies, such as low power wide area networks (LPWA), and Wi-Fi. Aeris seamlessly delivers connectivity in more than 190 countries, across more than 550 underlying carriers, all delivered on a single platform.
