Outlets

Murray Irrigation's PIIOP project includes the upgrade of the company's water management and measurement system. The two main types of outlets being installed are:

FlumeGate™
The FlumeGate™ is a combined flow measurement and control gate designed by Rubicon Water to regulate flow in open channels. Flow measurement, precise motor control, power supply and radio telecommunications are fully integrated in a single device. In free-flow or submerged conditions, flow is calculated from the gate's own measurements of upstream water level, downstream water level and gate position.

The FlumeGate™ can be operated as a stand-alone unit, or can coordinate with other gates along the channel to optimise the whole network's flow. It can be managed and monitored on-site or operated remotely when connected to Murray Irrigation's SCADA network. The FlumeGate™ automatically controls the flow of water by varying the gate position based on a desired set-point or on irrigation demand.

SlipMeter™
The SlipMeter™ is a flow meter with an integrated control gate designed to automate irrigation service points. Accurate flow measurement, precise flow control, power supply and radio telecommunications are fully integrated in a single device.

The SlipMeter™ accurately measures flows even in turbulent conditions. Instantaneous flow rate and total volume passed are recorded, providing a precise account of water usage. It features a local LCD display which provides the ability to control the service point and view instantaneous flow rate, volume of current delivery, and total flow volume for the season. The SlipMeter™ can be managed and monitored on-site or operated remotely when connected to Murray Irrigation's SCADA network.
