ORP And pH — What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
ORP And pH — What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

When I look back at 2016 one of the most significant and most satisfying trends I observed was the growing acceptance of ORP measurements, especially to monitor disinfection. To insure the killing of pathogens the measured ORP value provides an unambiguous indicator. The same cannot be said of measuring free chlorine, whose measurement must be combined with pH to determine disinfection efficacy.

  • Ultrasonic Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Plants
    Ultrasonic Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Plants

    Radar technology is often viewed as the “best” method of level measurement, but this isn’t necessarily true in the water industry.

  • Reverse Osmosis Application Bulletin
    Reverse Osmosis Application Bulletin

    Electrical conductivity is the most convenient method for testing RO water quality and membrane performance. Pure water is actually a poor electrical conductor. The amount of ionized substances (salts, acids, or bases) dissolved in water determines its conductivity. Normally, the vast majority of the dissolved minerals in tap, surface or ground water

    Facility administrators will find the advanced ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) helps them improve the accuracy of specialty gas point of use and sub-metering operations to achieve accurate billing in their labs for better cost tracking and control.

  • All WirelessHART Devices Are Not Created Equal
    All WirelessHART Devices Are Not Created Equal

    Though they all must support routing functionality, some devices do it better than others.

    Routing consumes more energy, so the lifetime of the battery will be affected.  Therefore, a device with a battery that is inexpensive, has a long lifetime, and is easy to change would be ideal. With all this considered, a WirelessHART temperature transmitter is a suitable option to operate as a repeater.

  • Secret To Disinfection Monitoring For High Chlorine Residual Wastewater Applications
    Secret To Disinfection Monitoring For High Chlorine Residual Wastewater Applications

    Some wastewater applications require chlorine residuals greater than can be effectively monitored using DPD due to the oxidation of the Wurster dye to a colorless Imine. Such applications include industrial wastewater processes that inherently have a high chlorine demand thereby requiring a more robust monitoring method.

  • Accurately Measuring Network Leakage

Capital Controls® Series 71P11A Gas Pressure Reducing Valve Capital Controls® Series 71P11A Gas Pressure Reducing Valve

The Series 71P11A Gas Pressure Reducing and Shutoff Valve is a diaphragm-type gas pressure regulating valve designed for use on chlorine, sulfur dioxide and ammonia gas service. The valve is used in a gas dispensing system to prevent liquefaction of the gas by providing a controlled pressure drop in the piping system. Downstream pressure is regulated to a reduced value by adjustment of the control setting. If the downstream pressure exceeds the pressure at which the valve is set, gas flow will be shut off.
