WATER INDUSTRY FEATURES

  • Technical Experts Key To The Future Of Water
    Technical Experts Key To The Future Of Water

    Water is a complex, challenging field— a fact that should be better promoted if the industry wants to move forward, says Rich Lowrie, the water and wastewater industry manager with Krohne.

  • The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring
    The Basics: ORP and Free Chlorine Monitoring

    Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.

  • QuadraTherm® 640i/780i Mass Flow Meter Datasheet

    Traditional thermal sensors have two sensors-–one temperature sensor and one velocity sensor, each in a separate probe sheath. QuadraTherm (the term “Quad” meaning “four”) introduces four sensors—three precision platinum temperature sensors and one patented DrySense mass velocity sensor. Sensor performance improvements never thought possible are gained with QuadraTherm as forced convection is completely isolated (the critical variable for measuring gas mass flow rate) by calculating and then eliminating unwanted heat-transfer components, like sensor stem conduction, one of the major causes of false flow readings.
