ETS-UV for Food & Beverage Process Water

ETS-UV for Food & Beverage Process Water

Waterborne microorganisms are responsible for adverse effects on the flavor, color, odor, and shelf life of soft drinks, bottled water and food products. It is therefore the fundamental objective of food and beverage manufacturers to eliminate spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms from process water, product water, and sugar solutions to overcome this problem.

Correlated, Acoustic Leak Detection System: Aclara STAR® ZoneScan

Correlated, Acoustic Leak Detection System: Aclara STAR® ZoneScan

Non-revenue water loss due to underground leaks is a major headache for utilities — and losses often worsen as the infrastructure ages. What’s more, leaks often erupt into major infrastructure failures. Aclara STAR ZoneScan is the industry’s only remotely correlated acoustic leak-detection solution that uses time-synchronized sound recordings to identify leak locations on the main. The sound recordings are made by underground equipment in the field and later correlated at the utility, pinpointing leaks before they become expensive emergencies. The solution’s hands-off operation as well as automated data collection and analysis saves money, time, and resources.
