  • Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection
    Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection

    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.

  • How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
    How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.

  • Optimize Energy And Resource Usage
    Optimize Energy And Resource Usage

    Through the implementation of a WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity and Steam) monitoring solution, a brewery was able to optimize energy and resource usage while boosting capacity to meet the demands of U.S. customers. Water usage costs were reduced by 28%; the brewery’s carbon footprint was reduced creating a savings of $2 million/year from CO2 recovery; compressed air usage was reduced by 15%; and fuel oil costs were reduced by $34,000.

  • Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
    Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality

    Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irriga­tion resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.

  • 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.

  • Case Study: Lift Station Pump Sealing Lift stations or pumping stations supply wastewater to treatment plants. They are remote from the plant and are critical to the operation that many redundancies are built into each lift station to ensure they remain in operation, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These stations must be extremely reliable because the gravity flow coming into the lift station cannot be turned off.

  • Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries
    Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries

    A single operational oil and gas refinery produces millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater a year, leading to environmental pollution concerns. Ion exchange resins are a metal- and ion-removal solution to help clean this wastewater for plant reuse or safe disposal. This application guide explains how resins can be used to demineralize refinery water in process, boiler, and cooling water applications.

  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins
    Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    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.
