At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.
If your flow meter is costing you time and money ... and that all adds up to real operational headaches, then you might want to hear what four McCrometer customers who installed the FPI Mag Flow Meter have to say about this problem-solving flow instrument.
The City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, had been using a drive-by Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system to read all of its meters since 2010, but according to Rob Stark, utility supervisor for the City of Coeur d’Alene Water Department, it wasn’t realizing the full benefits with its existing system.
Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District (AVWSID) serves rural county residents who live outside the city of Vernal, Utah.
Air stripping and granulated activated carbon were applied at different points in the distribution system to evaluate effective removal of disinfection byproducts (DBPs). By Chandra Mysore, Ph.D., James Fletcher, Bill Roberts, and Mark Xerxis, GHD Inc.
Real time spectrophotometers offer the immediate detection capability of a wide range of important and emerging contaminants of concern.
Though they all must support routing functionality, some devices do it better than others.
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.
The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.
The water municipality at a mid-size city in the Western region of the U.S. serving a population of about180,000 people needed to address a chlorine disinfection system problem at one of its water treatment plants.
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds found naturally in the environment. PAHs are monitored by the US Environmental Protection Agency due to their carcinogenic characteristics.
In 2012, Americans consumed well over 79 billion servings of tea, which is just over 3.60 billion gallons.
Hexanal is one of many well-documented aromatic components that contribute to flavor and aroma in common consumer food products containing omega-6 fatty acids. Hexanal content is also used to measure the oxidative status of foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids.
Water quality laboratories across the nation are faced with both a rising level of water quality awareness amongst the general public, as well as rising costs in water quality monitoring. As a result, laboratories are looking for more efficient ways to provide higher quality monitoring.
Numerous compounds contribute to changes in beer flavor as it becomes stale. One of these compounds, (E)-2-nonenal, has been investigated as a major source of the papery/cardboard flavor that develops in aged beer.
The analysis of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in seawater can be both challenging and expensive. The concentration of organic carbon in seawater is of considerable interest. The effect this matrix can have on TOC analyzers can lead to rapid consumable turnover, costly maintenance and repairs.
The water industry in the UK faces a turning point in the use of instrumentation with the advent of TOTEX (capital expenditures [CAPEX] + operating expenditures [OPEX]) within the current Asset Management Period, the sixth since it privatized in 1989.
In Oregon, a mobile toolkit helps promote healthy ecosystems and protect community drinking water.
Not all data is good data. Businesses know this — or at least should — and it effects how they make decisions about sales, marketing and R&D.
To get the latest on the Promag 400 line of electromagnetic flow meters featuring specialized sensor technology, Water Online spoke with Endress+Hauser’s Flow Product Marketing Manager Nathan Hedrick and Environmental Industry Manager Alan Vance. The two served up details on the sensors’ web capabilities, proprietary Heartbeat Technology, and advanced safety features.
Rapid detection of changes in water quality is critical in water delivery systems, wastewater treatment, and industrial plants for process optimization, environmental regulatory requirements, and consumer health.
