    The time-consuming and costly task of traditional flow meter calibrations, which requires shutting down the line, pulling the meter, installing a spare and paying a lab fee, is no longer a painful or costly process with the innovative VeriCal In-Situ Calibration Verification System for the ST00 Series Flare Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI).

  8. The Challenges Of Combined Heat And Power Generation From Biogas
    3/16/2018

    Driven by tight budgets and competing needs for limited CAPEX funds, wastewater treatment plants are increasingly looking to reduce their operating expenses. Many are now referring to themselves as water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs), reflecting a heightened focus on recovering nutrients, methane, and a host of other properties from their waste flows. The largest boon to date has come from thermal energy, but producing biogas comes with its own set of challenges, including accurate gas flow measurement.

  9. Money Down The Drain: The High Cost Of Poor Air Flow Metering
    3/14/2018

    Activated sludge systems have been a cornerstone of wastewater treatment for over 100 years. This biological process uses suspended growth microorganisms to break down and consume organics and remove nutrients from the wastewater. The heart of the process takes place in aeration basins, where the microorganisms need to receive sufficient oxygen to stay alive.
