WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES

  • Crystal Clear Water Supply Corporation
    Crystal Clear Water Supply Corporation

    Serving an area from eastern San Marcos to northwest Seguin, Crystal Clear Water Supply Corporation (CCWSC) recently commissioned their integrator, Central Texas Water Maintenance (CTWM) to replace their Wonderware and WIN-911 systems with VTScada software from Trihedral.

  • Monsters Protect Pump Station, Weather Storms In Scotland
    Monsters Protect Pump Station, Weather Storms In Scotland

    Pump blockages and rags are a significant barrier to energy and operational efficiencies at pump stations, causing unscheduled shut downs, safety hazards for operators, costly equipment repairs and increased power usage due to a decrease in the pumps’ hydraulic performance. Scottish Water observed these negative effects caused by an influx of wipes and rags throughout a network of area pump stations. Engineers looked to a proven, powerful solution in the form of two JWC Environmental Channel Monster® grinders at one of their most problematic sites.

  • Robertson County Water Supply Corporation Adopts VTScada Software
    Robertson County Water Supply Corporation Adopts VTScada Software

    Serving just over 16,000 residents in eastern Texas, the Robertson County Water Supply Corporation (RCWSC) operates a small rural water system with five water plants, four wells, one booster pump station, and approximately 350 miles of PVC pipe. In December of 2014, their systems integrator, Express Electric, recommended that they adopt VTScada software from Trihedral to remotely monitor and control their plants.

  • Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping
    Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping

    Wastewater pumps have traditionally been operated in an on-off mode for small as well as large wastewater pump stations. Because the inflow of wastewater is varying over time and is often only a fraction of a pump’s required capacity engineers have looked for ways to operate wastewater pumps at a reduced capacity in order to optimize performance while reducing operating costs.

    A Tale Of Two SCADA Conversions

    Over the past five years, J.D. Irving, Limited Sawmill Division has invested $70 million in the latest operational equipment as part of their continuous investment in sustainable forest management strategies. In 2015, the company chose VTScada monitoring and control software to replace the aging SCADA systems used in their biomass boiler and trim line processes. Jody Gallant, an Electrical Engineering Technologist for JD Irving describes the some challenges and benefits of implementing a modern industrial SCADA system.

    Winslow Township — the largest town in Camden County, NJ — sought relief from its clog-prone, unreliable pumps.

  • Cooling Process Control Panels Effectively
    Cooling Process Control Panels Effectively

    Over the past few decades, the use of sophisticated high density electronics within automation and process control panels has become commonplace. Thermal management and its related costs for these electronic enclosures are very important considerations in managing these valuable assets. Choosing the appropriate and most cost and energy efficient cooling solution from the many types available requires knowledge of their individual strengths and weaknesses, and the ability to match that to the operational environment.
