In an era when water scarcity, water quality and delivery costs are becoming urgent problems worldwide, the flow meter is more important than ever as a water management tool. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure,” is a simple business truism, which summarizes the growing role of flow meters in many water process applications.
When facing source water problems, downtime from equipment malfunctions or emergencies, seasonal surges in consumption, or increased demand that exceeds system capacity, municipal and industrial water providers need a solution to rapidly increase production.
Many municipal water treatment plants utilize Ozone Treatment Systems to produce clean water for residential and industrial users. While all the various types of water treatment systems have their advantages and disadvantages, Ozone (O3) systems provide excellent disinfection and avoid some of the chemical byproduct problems experienced with the use of chlorination.

Our client is a processor of lemon, orange and grapefruit concentrates and single strength juices. Large portions of the State of California’s citrus crops are processed through the customer at three separate locations.
Neptune Benson provides a wide range of filters and UV products for disinfection in both water and wastewater.
Water reuse may be the moment’s most talked about treatment industry topic. It’s no wonder that as drought persists in regions throughout the world without sign of subsiding, questions about how we can make the most of our water are being asked.
A refinery needed to upgrade the wastewater treatment system to prepare for expected changes brought about by the use of a new crude feedstock with elevated concentrations of TDS and conductivity. Veolia Water Technologies supplied an AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) treatment system to reduce the BOD and ammonia in the effluent.
The use of peracetic acid (PAA) for wastewater disinfection has seen significant growth in North America over the last several years due to its advantages over chlorine-‐based chemistries.
Taking pH measurements may be the most common water quality testing performed around the world. From backyard pools to treatment plants serving millions, it has long been a reliable method of detecting red flags in water quality. But with rapid developments in sensor technology, is there room to innovate on such a routine practice? Water Online spoke with Thomas Roemer, the business development manager for KROHNE about the company’s efforts to do just that.
The City of Somersworth has a historical background dating back to the early 1900s when it became the first community to start using chlorine to disinfect it’s drinking water.
A market expert shines a light on the bright spots and trouble spots for industrial water reuse, revealing who should consider the practice and why.
You probably have some sort of insurance – for your healthcare, car, house, or apartment. Acting on climate change is also like insurance. It is all about managing the risks.
While many companies and investors have struggled to make sense of an entry point into the massive water industry, seeds are consistently being sown for those that know how to monitor and enter intelligently.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling data-driven smart agriculture. The IoT is a network of technologies which can monitor the status of physical and other objects, capture meaningful data, and communicate that data over a wireless network to a computer in the cloud for software to analyze and help determine action steps.
Massive droughts and water demands from a world population projected to grow to nine billion by 2050, translate to food insecurity and lack of water for agriculture.
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.
Columbus Water Works (CWW) provides drinking water and wastewater services to more than 250,000 residents in the Columbus, GA, area. In 2004, Fort Benning and Columbus Water Works signed an agreement that said CWW would provide water and wastewater services for the military base for 50 years, requiring a connection of the two systems and several large upgrades.
In wastewater collection systems, raw sewage flows through gravity sewers to lift stations, which transfer the waste from lower elevation to higher elevations and eventually to a treatment plant. By Endress+Hauser, Inc.
The City of Geneva is located on the Seneca Lake in the wine-producing area of New York known as the Finger Lakes region. The drinking water facility, a Pall 2-train custom Aria™ membrane system, is operated by a team that prides itself in serving the clean water needs of its constituents. Integral to those efforts is the leveraging of tablet technology for maximizing plant operating efficiencies and minimizing downtime.
Activated carbon and ion exchange can be called two sides of the same coin. Where activated carbon purifies water by removing organic contaminants through an adsorption process, ion exchange removes contaminants under the surface via electrical charge.
An international mining company was looking at electrocoagulation for waste treatment at a copper mine in South America. A sample from ore processing was provided for bench-scale testing.
Accurate partially-filled pipe measurement is essential when dealing with variable stormwater flows or over-sized community systems built for future growth.
