Light Scatter Tech: Laser Nephelometer Vs.Probe Turbidimeter
By Hach Company
Two new instruments were used in this study, a laser nephelometer and a probe turbidimeter. The laser nephelometer is designed to detect very small changes in turbidity. The probe turbidimeter exhibits quick response and contains an 860-nm infrared light source, making it immune to color interference.


Optimizing Existing Designs Through Cost-Effective Simulation
By Glenn Dorsch, P.E., and Kent Keeran, Vaughan Company Inc.
The chopper pump is a centrifugal pump that utilizes a chopping action between the impeller and suction plate. These pumps were originally designed in the 1960s for use in the local dairy industry to transport manure to and from storage tanks.


Hot Rod Improves Meter Reading
By Mueller Water Products
The manual, bimonthly collection of readings from each meter was no small challenge — or expense — for Davie County Public Utilities. Oftentimes, meters in its water system were separated by a half mile or more, and covering the routes could take a driver and a meter reader as many as 50 days.


Versatility Of Thermal Mass Flow Meters
By Magnetrol International
There are many well-documented flow meter technologies that are essentially trying to accomplish the same thing: measure fluid flow rate. Some of the technologies that are entrenched in the market, such as flow meters that utilize differential pressure as the measurement principle, are well understood by customers. Thermal mass flow meters however, such as the Magnetrol Thermatel TA2, represent a rapidly growing technology that is continuously evolving.


How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
By Fortrans, Inc.
When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial wastewater burden on publically owned wastewater treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pretreatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.
