    AMERICAN Zinc, V-Bio Protect Iron Pipe Against Aggressive Soils In Bismarck, North Dakota

    More than 6,800 cubic yards of structural concrete are being used in the construction of a new Trickling Filter and Trickling Filter Pump Station in Bismarck, North Dakota. These structures are being built well below the area’s water table, and the more than 6,800 cubic yards of concrete will protect them against the effects of Mother Nature.

  • WIMS Offers A Winning Solution In Columbia, SC
    WIMS Offers A Winning Solution In Columbia, SC

    Back in 2012, the City Of Columbia made the decision to update its OPS SQL software to Hach WIMS (water information management system). The old software was not only sitting idle, but was also out of date. The reasons for updating and implementing the software were many but can be summarized with the two primary goals: To collect the data into a central database that is easily accessible and to create a dashboard from which the rotating operations teams or management could quickly understand what was happening. After more than a year of coordinating Metro management and staff, Hach WIMS support staff, and city IT staff, WIMS began to take shape.

  • 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.

  • Energy Measurement Tools Make Processes More Efficient While Reducing Costs
    Energy Measurement Tools Make Processes More Efficient While Reducing Costs

    Rising energy prices have made accurate energy measurement a hot topic in recent decades. The need for accurate measurement technologies extends to many different application areas, including heating and cooling; compressed air; steam production and distribution; heavy fuel oil consumption; energy monitoring; and custody transfer. In response, new technology is being developed that integrates tasks previously requiring several measurement devices.
