    Technical Article: Improve Flow Meter Flexibility And Simplify Maintenance By Combining Wired And Wireless Technologies

    If you’ve been thinking that wireless technology for process control is still too far away or not as reliable as you would like for critical or hazardous applications in your plant, there’s a new reason that you might still want to evaluate it. Now you can get the best of both the “wired” and “wireless” world in a flow meter that let’s you read and send flow data with high reliability of conventional hard wire communications while at the same time simplifying maintenance and other routine tasks with wireless technology.

    Technical Article: Protect Your Pump And Keep It Longer

    In today’s complex and frequently rugged process plant environments, liquid pumps are often over-worked and under-protected from adverse operating conditions. Many pumps run nearly non-stop 24-hours a day over multiple shifts. Poor operating conditions can reduce pump performance, require extra maintenance, shorten their lives and increase costs.

SORB 33® Arsenic Removal System SORB 33® Arsenic Removal System

The SORB 33® arsenic removal system from De Nora Water Technologies is economical, simple to operate and requires virtually no labor. In this simple pump-and-treat adsorption system, the contaminated water passes through a robust granular ferric oxide media, Bayoxide® E33. As water passes through the media, arsenic is adsorbed and removed to a level below the 5 micrograms per liter (μg/l). The SORB 33 system requires no cleaning, no regeneration and no complex, laborintensive steps.

Chemical Processing Industry Chemical Processing Industry

Veolia provides the chemical processing industry with a variety of water and wastewater treatment systems and technologies. Complete water cycle, from the production of process water to wastewater treatment, water recycling and reuse, premium chemical production, odor control, and residuals management. 

Oxidizing Micropollutants In Water Circulation Oxidizing Micropollutants In Water Circulation

The elimination of micropollutants from our water is a challenge which more and more facilities are having to address. While conventional treatment processes do not remove them completely, oxidation with ozone is proving to be one of the most efficient methods of treatment.

Capital Controls® Series 17T2000 Amperometric Titrator Capital Controls® Series 17T2000 Amperometric Titrator

The Series 17T2000 Amperometric Titrator is an analytical instrument for the electrical determination of the end point of a titration for free, combined, or total chlorine residual. It can also be used to determine bromine, iodine, ozone, permanganate, and chlorine dioxide residuals.

John Meunier StormGuard® Overflow Screen John Meunier StormGuard® Overflow Screen

Every year, large volumes of raw sewage overflow into our waterways when the storage capacity of the sewer network is exceeded. When an overflow cannot be avoided, effective retention of floatables and debris is required. The StormGuard® Overflow Fine Screen, a weir mounted horizontal band screen, provides one of the highest capture ratios on the market.

STAR® Network Through-The-Lid Antenna STAR® Network Through-The-Lid Antenna

Aclara’s through-the-lid antenna lets you choose how to install communications modules in meter pits. You decide whether to reuse current metal lids or replace them with RF-permeable ones. Modules installed with the antenna provide equivalent communications performance to those mounted under RF-permeable lids.
