Guaynabo WTP In Puerto Rico Saves Thousands With UV 254 Monitoring Package

Dealing with fluctuating water sources is not an easy task for plant operators. Seasonal variation, heavy rainfall, or accidental contamination events change the raw water quality, requiring immediate attention. In an initiative to improve plant performance, the Los Filtros Water Treatment Plant in Puerto Rico coordinated with Montanas Electric, Inc. and the Nator Corporation to integrate a UV254 coagulation optimization package. Initial Phase 1 testing presented far greater results than expected, savings thousands in chemical costs. Learn more.

Spotlight On Flow And Level Measurement

12 Ways To Measure Fluid
By ABB Measurement Products
The demands of sophisticated automated processing systems, the need for ever-tighter process control, and an increasingly stringent regulatory environment drive process engineers to seek more precise and reliable level measurement systems.


Closed-Loop Cooling Tower System Reduces Thermal Impact On Bay
By Jennifer Kerckhoff, Vertical Marketing Manager, McCrometer, Inc.
A large power generation plant on a coastal bay site in the United States needed to convert its cooling tower water system to a closed-loop design. The newly retrofitted closed-loop system is more efficient and reduces the thermal impact on the bay.


Capacitance Level Switches For Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection
By William Sholette, Level Products Business Manager, Endress+Hauser
There are a number of point level approaches to measuring the interface between water and oil for water dump control in the oil and gas industry. However, each has disadvantages. This white paper introduces capacitance level switches as an accurate and reliable alternative for water/oil interface detection.


Multipurpose Flowmeter Works In All Industrial Applications
By KROHNE, Inc.
The Ultrasonic 3400 is a multipurpose flowmeter for demanding process industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, energy, and water. This video highlights key product features such as universal usage for conductive and nonconductive liquids, and a full-bore unobstructed sensor tube without moving parts that prevents pressure loss.
