In 40 years, Endress+Hauser has become market leader in electromagnetic flow measuring technology
In today’s economic environment when profits are reduced due to rising costs, it is necessary to find ways to save time and money.
In June 2011, Evoqua was contacted by a manufacturer of battery equipment for electric lift trucks. The systems are routinely used at many large food processing facilities in Texas.
The Greater Lawrence Sanitation District is responsible for building, maintaining, and operating a system of sewage collection and disposal for over 130,000 people in five communities in Essex County. Established in 1977, the plant operates on the banks of the Merrimack River approximately 24 miles from Boston, in the northeastern part of Massachusetts.
Providing the best value to wastewater customers requires a team of operators that have a deep sense of ownership and are committed to continuous improvement. By Patrick Higgins
There are a number of point level approaches to measuring the interface between water and oil for water dump control in the oil and gas industry. However, each has disadvantages — manual methods introduce human error, conductivity switches are rendered inaccurate by buildup, and float switches are susceptible to wear and tear. This white paper introduces capacitance level switches as an accurate and reliable alternative for water/oil interface detection.
Thermal dispersion switches use similar principles as thermal mass flow meters. Fluid carries heat away from the probe tip reducing the temperature difference between a heated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and a reference RTD.
Wales is said to be wetter throughout the year than Northern Ireland and England, and is known for intense rainfall activity. Therefore, effectively treating and managing the country’s substantial stormwater runoff is of utmost importance. It’s also subject to increased scrutiny from governing bodies.
A Kaeser EBS series screw blower is making wastewater treatment considerably more efficient and effective at the Goldsteig dairy factory in Cham in the Upper Palatinate region in Germany.
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is a global pharmaceutical and related health care company with the mission to extend and enhance human life. One of the company’s oldest and largest facilities was built in 1943 in East Syracuse, New York, when BMS was one of 12 companies chosen by the federal government to mass produce penicillin.
Lift stations are remote pumping facilities that move wastewater from lower to higher elevation. Monitoring lift stations is important to collection system operators.
Phosphorous promotes eutrophication in surface waters and helps create conditions for algal blooming and oxygen depletion. Some phosphorous removal can occur naturally in a conventional biological wastewater treatment facility, but the result is not reliably compliant with increasingly strict limits on permissible phosphate levels in effluent discharged to receiving streams, ponds and lakes.

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds found naturally in the environment. PAHs are monitored by the US Environmental Protection Agency due to their carcinogenic characteristics.
Facility administrators will find the advanced ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) helps them improve the accuracy of specialty gas point of use and sub-metering operations to achieve accurate billing in their labs for better cost tracking and control.
As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.
The Littleton/Englewood wastewater treatment plant, Colorado, put in place processes to effectively monitor the levels of ammonia in their wastewater treatment.
A recent study into one of the world’s first anammox reactors has determined the organisms behind the process, including a mysterious “dark matter” microbe. Do they hold the key to improving wastewater nutrient removal?
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.
As critical gateways to the Internet of things (IoT), sensors are sure to have a massive social and economic impact globally within the next decade.
Water 4.0 is a concept that has recently been raised as the “future” of the water industry …possibly. Apart from being a paraphrase of Industry 4.0, the questions have to be asked: What is it, and what does it have to do with the way the water industry operates in its current state?
In most wastewater treatment systems, a well-designed equalization basin with the right equipment can improve operational performance and reduce costs.
