    Although treating produced water typically has been difficult and expensive, an increasing number of Texas oil and natural as producers are finding produced water reuse more and more attractive, encouraged by new technologies that make it more affordable to treat the vast volumes of wastewater generated.

  • Why A Little Knowledge About Sensors Can Be A Dangerous Thing
    Why A Little Knowledge About Sensors Can Be A Dangerous Thing

    Every day our technical support people answer questions on the selection of sensors for pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. No issue generates more confusion than cell constants for conductivity sensors. The vast majority of returns we process are for conductivity sensors that were ordered with the wrong cell constant. It turns out that cell constants are something that we all read but that most of us don’t really understand. Pick the wrong cell constant for a probe and your analyzer will happily give you numbers to 3 significant digits. The only problem is those numbers are wrong.

  • Membrane Contactors Reduce Radiation Build-Up In Nuclear Power Plants
    Membrane Contactors Reduce Radiation Build-Up In Nuclear Power Plants

    For nuclear power plants, controlling dissolved gas in the water system can be essential in preventing the release of radioactive material. Several nuclear power plants have recently installed Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors into their water systems to remove dissolved gases. This application note explains how the membrane technology reduces the formation of radionuclides to protect both the operator and the environment during plant overhaul and decommissioning.

  • 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.

    Primary Wastewater Treatment: Influent Monitoring

    The raw sewage entering a wastewater treatment plant comes from a variety of sources. In addition to effluent from domestic users, effluent from industrial users and storm water run off can be present.

  • Monitoring Nitrates In Drinking Water And Wastewater

    Nitrate is present in high levels in wastewater due in part to the high nitrates present in human sewage but also from some types of industrial effluent entering the municipal sewer system.
