  • Three Steps For Reducing Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) In Pumping Systems
    Three Steps For Reducing Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) In Pumping Systems

    Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

    Identifying And Estimating The Value Of SCADA And Smart Metering Systems In Water Distribution Networks

    Considering the invaluable service provided to the society by the water companies, it is imperative to ensure their sustainability. To achieve this objective, these organizations must be allowed to fulfill their mission with effectiveness and efficiency. Information and communication technologies are especially important tools in this pursuit of enhanced performance.

    Water Cybersecurity: Alarming, Autodialers, And The Resistance To Change

    It is 2:00 AM on Saturday morning. It is a cold, frigid night. The booster station maintaining water pressure within the distribution system has unexpectedly shut down. The autodialer checks for a dial tone, then calls the first standby operator and plays the prerecorded message, “Booster Station Shutdown Alarm” it repeats, “Booster Station Shutdown Alarm,” “Press 1 on your touch-tone phone to acknowledge this recording.” The operator presses the 1 key on his phone. A potential outage is likely. Customers will be disrupted. The operator has no idea what has happened, or the appropriate tools to bring to the solution. By Darian Slywka

  • Designing For Process Automation: 5 Keys To Success
    Designing For Process Automation: 5 Keys To Success

    For most water and wastewater treatment plant operators, the words "process automation" are likely music to their ears. Labor requirements are reduced, while processes become more efficient and reliable — all outcomes that make an operator's life easier. But the decision to automate will often fall on the engineer in the design stage of a plant build or upgrade. I wondered what guides an engineer's decision to automate specific processes, so I went to Craig Correia, head of process automation at Festo Corporation, to gain some insight.

VTScada 11 HMI / SCADA Software

VTScada 11 HMI / SCADA Software

Instantly Intuitive SCADA Software

Intuitive means many things to many people, but most agree that intuitive designs should work for you and not the other way around. It simply doesn't feel intuitive if you must source third-party products to make the solution work - like historians, OPC drivers, Auto-dialers or application version control. The right product should let you design the way you want, objects first then graphics or vice-versa. It should also be designed for the special needs of Industrial control, not generic IT technology that require many add-ons to manage & worry about. Discover VTScada.

  • The Great Graywater Debate
    The Great Graywater Debate

    Widespread nonpotable reuse of graywater could potentially lead to a significant reduction in water demand, and over 8 million people across the U.S. are already using graywater for landscape irrigation. Yet most of the graywater reuse currently taking place is illegal. 

  • WWEMA Window: Why ‘Buy American’ May Be Bad For America
    WWEMA Window: Why ‘Buy American’ May Be Bad For America

    “Buy American” is a sound bite that conjures up an image of a Norman Rockwell painting, motherhood, and apple pie. Ask most people on the street, in our state houses, and on Capitol Hill whether “Buy American” is good, and I suspect most peoples’ immediate response would be … “Of course it’s a good thing.” While it is good to promote the purchase of American-made goods, there is another very important side to this issue that is so much more complex and challenging than what can be conveyed in a simple sound bite.
