Drinking Water Application Notes

  1. Preliminary Assessment Of Water Quality In Riviera Grise Near Port-Au-Prince, Haiti
    10/17/2012

    The Riviera Grise drains water from the Cul-de-Sac watershed, Haiti, which covers most of the rural areas along the flood plains and areas that extend into steep hillsides. It also covers urban areas of Port-Au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti.

  2. Application Note: YSI 600 Optical Monitoring System Used To Protect Lake Oconee, Georgia Water Quality
    12/27/2005
    Northern Georgia is experiencing unprecedented development; consequently, water quality in many of its watersheds is in jeopardy of severe degradation. The State of Georgia, Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has implemented an NPDES monitoring and enforcement program designed to prevent construction activities from impacting water quality
  3. Application Note: Turbidity Monitoring In Drinking Water Treatment Plants
    8/30/2005

    Turbidity, or the relative clarity of a liquid (in this case drinking water), is caused by the presence of microscopic particles such as clay, silt, or other fine undissolved matter

  4. Innovative Solutions To Drinking Water Decontamination In Small And Medium Treatment Plants
    9/21/2017

    Air stripping technology effectively removes VOCs, THMs, and CO2 for improved adherence to water quality regulations.

  5. Phosphate Corrosion Control In Drinking Water
    11/21/2012

    Corrosion occurs because metals tend to oxidize when they come in contact with oxygenated water, resulting in the formation of stable metal oxides.

  6. A Strategy For Optimizing Water Treatment Plant Performance Using Light Scatter Technologies
    6/7/2013

    Two new particle detecting technologies have been developed to help optimize filter performance at water treatment plants (WTP).

  7. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Improve Water Quality and EDI Performance
    6/27/2017

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is a widely used water treatment process. EDI technology is an electrochemical process that uses ion selective membranes and an electrical current to continuously remove ions from water. The process uses ion exchange resin to remove the ions from the feed stream, producing pure water.

  8. UV Technology Offers Solution For Emerging Water Crisis
    2/19/2014

    Many are turning to UV as an effective barrier to enable the reuse of wastewater, for indirect reuse, and aquifer recharge.

  9. Organics Monitoring (TOC)
    2/1/2013

    Total organic carbon (TOC) testing is the traditional method for determining organic matter in water. However there is a far more practical, affordable and often more useful way to measure organic matter. UV absorbance testing (UVA) is rapidly becoming the preferred method of measuring organics even when the levels of organics being measured are very small.

  10. ABB Aztec 600 Manganese Analyzer Optimizing Manganese Removal Efficiency
    11/15/2017

    The task of managing the quantity and quality of potable water is unimaginable without online instrumentation to help water utilities to measure, treat and deliver drinking water to consumers. ABB’s Aztec 600 colorimetric and ion-selective electrode (ISE) analyzers have been designed to measure the key parameters that affect water quality – aluminium, iron, manganese, phosphate, color, ammonia and fluoride.
