Chicago Suburb Ensures Highest Water Quality Year-Round, Saves On Labor And Reagents With New Chlorine Analyzers

For the Village of Lombard’s Water Division, consistently delivering high-quality tap water to the community’s nearly 44,000 residents and the businesses serving them was once quite a juggling act: constantly fixing old, temperamental analyzers; feeding reagents into the old analyzers; and staying ahead of callers complaining about “musty” water tastes and odors. Not today.

    Portable Parallel Analysis: Streamlining Distribution System Water Testing

    A Water Quality Specialist used the Hach SL1000 Parallel Portable Analyzer (PPA) to test 6 parameters simultaneously – all within about 8 minutes.  Previously, the procedure took 20 minutes just for one parameter.

  • Optimize Energy And Resource Usage
    Optimize Energy And Resource Usage

    Through the implementation of a WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity and Steam) monitoring solution, a brewery was able to optimize energy and resource usage while boosting capacity to meet the demands of U.S. customers. Water usage costs were reduced by 28%; the brewery’s carbon footprint was reduced creating a savings of $2 million/year from CO2 recovery; compressed air usage was reduced by 15%; and fuel oil costs were reduced by $34,000.

  • Making Accurate pH Measurements
    Making Accurate pH Measurements

    Like the old saying goes, give a man a watch and he always knows what time it is. Give him two watches and he never knows the correct time. What do watches have to do with pH? In this article, we will tie the analogy of accurate time to pH measurement and show how to make more accurate, dependable and believable pH measurements by using three pH sensors.

  • How To Clean, Inspect, And Calibrate pH Sensors

    Once a pH sensor is installed in the process and operating, how do you determine when it is time to take the sensor out of the process and do a cleaning, or a calibration? Does one perform both a cleaning and a calibration or just a cleaning, or just a calibration? By Fred Kohlmann - Analytical Product Business Manager

  • Town Of Hillsborough Relies On Hach For Free-Ammonia Testing And Nitrification Control When Bay-area water wholesaler San Francisco Regional Water System (SFRWS) changed its residual drinking water disinfection process from chlorine to chloramine, the town of Hillsborough’s Water Quality staff faced the challenge of updating its water testing procedures to prevent nitrification and continue to meet state-mandated drinking water quality standards.
