  • Oldest Town In West Virginia Adopts Modern Wastewater Treatment System
    Oldest Town In West Virginia Adopts Modern Wastewater Treatment System

    Along the banks of the Potomac River and nested in the lower Shenandoah Valley, sits the quaint and historical Shepherdstown, the oldest town in West Virginia with nearly 1,200 residents and home to Shepherd University which serves about 4,000 students. The town attracts visitors year-round who come to take in the shops and bistros along German Street and visit the town’s many historical landmarks including the Mecklenburg Tobacco Warehouse. This 1920’s landmark housed the town’s waterworks that supplied water to Shepherdstown residents until the mid ‘70s.

    Make Your SCADA Feel Young Again

    When the Village of Romeoville underwent a major upgrade to their SCADA system, they also decided to move to the latest version of the monitoring & control software that they had used successfully for many years. This version included features designed specifically for the water/wastewater industry. In this article, a former Head of the Water Department (*) explains why the utility continues to push for the latest HMI version and how this helps them overcome many of the issues related to maintaining a long-running SCADA system.

  • Extreme Water Filtering – Consider High-Flow Systems To Save Costs And Reduce Waste
    Extreme Water Filtering – Consider High-Flow Systems To Save Costs And Reduce Waste

    In an era when everything is done to the extreme – from sports, to home makeovers, to weather predictions – it should come as no surprise that the world of water filtering has joined the crowd. “Extreme” filtering, so to speak, is achieved through the use of high-flow cartridge systems – smaller designs that are able to handle much higher water volumes and pressures at lower costs and with less maintenance.

ETS-UV for Food & Beverage Process Water

ETS-UV for Food & Beverage Process Water

Waterborne microorganisms are responsible for adverse effects on the flavor, color, odor, and shelf life of soft drinks, bottled water and food products. It is therefore the fundamental objective of food and beverage manufacturers to eliminate spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms from process water, product water, and sugar solutions to overcome this problem.

  • ETS-UV for Drinking Water Disinfection Product Summary

    ETS has developed a range of drinking water UV systems that comply with the requirements of the US EPA Design Guidance Manual and have been independently validated to demonstrate performance under a variety of operating conditions. The systems are modeled using CFD and FEA emulation tools, which are continuously and iteratively improved following bioassay, routinely undertaken with a variety of surrogate organisms such as B. Subtilis, T1, and MS2 phage.

    Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up

    Now that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its rule for cooling water intakes under Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, the race is on for more than 600 power plants and manufacturing facilities to comply.  Right now, there is probably no better example in the water industry of how carefully choosing among compliance options can lead to millions of dollars in cost savings.

  • The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring
    The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring

    Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.

    Next Generation Mag Meter Measuring Flow In A Pump Station

    A municipal drinking water distribution system, also known as a water supply system, is used to provide fresh drinking water to residential and commercial customers and facilities around the world. A distribution system for drinking water typically begins with: a) intake of raw surface water from a reservoir or lake or b) ground water intake from wells transferred to a water treatment plant. During the water treatment process, the water intake must flow through a series of processes that clarify, filter, and disinfect the water source transported to the distribution system and made available for storage and human consumption.

    High-Power UV Lamps Lower Replacement Costs, Reduce Maintenance

    The Tesla Water Treatment Facility is located in Tracy California approximately 60 miles west of San Francisco in the Central Valley of California. Since 1934, San Francisco has received water from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park via the 167 mile long Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct. Due to the pristine nature of the water source, the water is unfiltered and was only chlorinated at the 75 year old Tesla Portal facility.

  • QuadraTherm® 640i/780i Mass Flow Meter Datasheet

    Traditional thermal sensors have two sensors-–one temperature sensor and one velocity sensor, each in a separate probe sheath. QuadraTherm (the term “Quad” meaning “four”) introduces four sensors—three precision platinum temperature sensors and one patented DrySense mass velocity sensor. Sensor performance improvements never thought possible are gained with QuadraTherm as forced convection is completely isolated (the critical variable for measuring gas mass flow rate) by calculating and then eliminating unwanted heat-transfer components, like sensor stem conduction, one of the major causes of false flow readings.
