How To Select A Flowmeter Technology To Minimize Annual Energy Costs
By ABB Measurement Products
Selecting the right technology for a flow measurement application can be a daunting task. In the case that several technologies will work for a particular application, minimizing energy costs can help narrow the selection. This article discusses ways to assess the energy costs associated with a particular flowmeter technology to inform your decision.


Protecting Our Water: Keep Chemicals In The Tank
By Bill Sholette, Level Products Business Manager, and Ricardo Chavez, Solutions Business Manager, Endress+Hauser
Leaking or overfilled tanks can cause environmental problems, contaminate drinking water, and cost a company millions of dollars. Proper instrumentation, monitoring and control can prevent these problems.


Next-Generation Mag Meter: A Tool For Leak Detection
By Michelle Pawlowicz, Marketing Specialist, McCrometer
There is an unrealized opportunity to understand non-revenue water by expanding flow meter usage to include new measuring points. What some may not be aware of, is that the data provided by flow meters is an asset that utilities can use to drive down water loss.


Liquid Level/Interface Monitoring In Flocculant/Sludge Control
By Steven Craig, Sr. Member Technical Staff Fluid Components International (FCI)
Precisely measuring and controlling the mixture of wastewater effluent, flocculants, and sludge is essential to efficient water treatment. The level/interface instruments that support the process liquid measurements must be capable of distinguishing between liquids with varying properties in order to detect the levels where the different liquids interface in the pond or tank.
