As the principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services throughout the state of Western Australia, Water Corporation manages more than 100 wastewater treatment plants and over 1,100 pump stations across an area more than a quarter of the size of the USA. 

After trials and extensive experience with a wide variety of both contacting and non-contacting alternatives, Water Corporation has chosen UK manufacturer Pulsar Process Measurement to be a preferred supplier of level measurement and control requirements.

Equipment used:

The Corporation will use hundreds of Pulsar’s specialist non-contacting ultrasonic sensors and controllers, with technical and sales support from Pulsar’s regional office and Australian distributor.

Since 2012, Water Corporation has installed over 200 Pulsar ultrasonic units, and has recently purchased a further 346 to install throughout its Perth Metropolitan network. Pulsar’s Australian distributor Bintech is supplying both equipment and know-how through their Western Australian representative John Hoskins of Gateway Technical Services.

With such an extensive network operating in the often extreme conditions of Australia, equipment has to work reliably. Water Corporation undertook a detailed investigation of equipment in use throughout its sites, reviewing and comparing performance. The Corporation was able to identify Pulsar equipment as consistently being a reliable system.

Pulsar has grown to the point that the company is now the leading specialist ultrasonic manufacturer in the world, with non-contacting measurement systems working successfully from the heat of Australia to the cold of Canada, from China to the United States. With regional offices strategically positioned around the world working with an extensive network of trained and accredited distributors, Pulsar can confidently supply and support equipment anywhere in the world.

“Water Corporation’s choice of Pulsar equipment demonstrates the lower support costs and high reliability that we offer, and we are delighted to be able to help them to solve technical issues and provide a high standard of service to the people of Western Australia,” said Pulsar’s Regional Manager Asia Pacific, Colin Murphy.

“Our policy of strongly supporting national specialists such as Bintech/Gateway Technical Services means that users can be absolutely confident of great on-going advice and training wherever they are.”
