  • 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.

  • Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring
    Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) is a progressive supplier of potable water. With source water from the Adirondack Mountains, MVWA works to improve on nature and provide superior water quality, always striving to meet or exceed drinking water standards. Like many other surface water sources, MVWA’s water supply is rich with natural organic matter (NOM). Unfortunately, growing research has demonstrated that NOM in water when combined with chlorine leads to the formation of potentially harmful disinfection by-products.
  • Optimized Quality Control In Mineral Water Plants Due to microbiological activity in the process, or to a lesser extent due to the reduction in nitrate levels in the raw water, nitrogen compounds may give rise to increased nitrite concentrations. By Endress + Hauser, Inc.
  • Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help
    Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help Superior water quality, it is why we treat our waters. All around the world we are continually striving to improve the safety of our drinking water to protect public health. However, how are we assuring the success of our efforts? UV254 testing provides valuable assurance about your water quality by detecting organic matter in water. This is something that turbidity can’t do. Just because you have low turbidity does not mean that you will have low organics. By Real Tech Inc.

  • Utilizing A Phosphate Analyzer To Monitor And Control Chemical Feed Reduces Operating Costs And Improves Reliability
    Utilizing A Phosphate Analyzer To Monitor And Control Chemical Feed Reduces Operating Costs And Improves Reliability

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which provides for the enhancement of the safety of public drinking water supplies through the establishment and enforcement of nationwide drinking water regulations. Congress gave the primary responsibility for establishing regulations to the U. S. EPA.   Until 1990, the EPA administered a certification process for chemicals, including phosphates, to be used for potable water treatment. By Randy C. Turner, Technical Director, Swan Analytical USA

  • The Basics: Monitoring Deionized Water
    The Basics: Monitoring Deionized Water

    Years ago, high purity water was used only in limited applications. Today, deionized (Dl) water has become an essential ingredient in hundreds of applications including: medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics manufacturing, food processing, plating, countless industrial processes, and even the final rinse at the local car wash.

  • The Basics: Keeping Our Water Clean Requires Monitoring
    The Basics: Keeping Our Water Clean Requires Monitoring

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality.

  • The Basics: Testing RO Quality
    The Basics: Testing RO Quality

    Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached.

  • Immediate pH Correction For Fluctuating Flow
    Immediate pH Correction For Fluctuating Flow

    In a number of water, wastewater and industrial process applications, pH is one of the most critical and highly sensitive analytical measurements.  Examples of critical pH applications include: Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems in which a controlled feed of caustic solution is typically added to the feed stream in order to convert a portion of dissolved carbon dioxide into bicarbonate precipitate allowing for removal by the RO membrane. By Rafik H. Bishara, Steve Jacobs, and Dan Bell

    Water Distribution System Wireless Monitoring Application Note

    Providing water distribution monitoring solutions since 1987, Telog continues to offer the industry’s leading remote data acquisition system including the most comprehensive family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors available from any single supplier.

  • Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
    Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note

    Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement

    One of the most important measurements in the determination of the health of a body of water is its dissolved oxygen content. The quantity of dissolved oxygen in water is normally expressed in parts per million (ppm) by weight and is due to the solubility of oxygen from the atmosphere around us.

    Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is a global pharmaceutical and related health care company with the mission to extend and enhance human life. One of the company’s oldest and largest facilities was built in 1943 in East Syracuse, New York, when BMS was one of 12 companies chosen by the federal government to mass produce penicillin.

  • On-Line Phosphorous Measurement Takes The Guesswork Out Of Alum Treatment
    On-Line Phosphorous Measurement Takes The Guesswork Out Of Alum Treatment

    Phosphorous promotes eutrophication in surface waters and helps create conditions for algal blooming and oxygen depletion. Some phosphorous removal can occur naturally in a conventional biological wastewater treatment facility, but the result is not reliably compliant with increasingly strict limits on permissible phosphate levels in effluent discharged to receiving streams, ponds and lakes. By Bob Dabkowski, Hach Company
