  8. Municipal Wastewater Provides A Solution For A Major Chemical Processing Plant
    7/6/2017

    Water scarcity is requiring large industrial plants to investigate conservation options, including reuse of municipal wastewater effluent, in order to grow sustainably while meeting increased demands for fresh water make-up.

  9. Transient And Surge Related Pipe Bursts, Water Loss And Damage Prevention
    2/13/2013

    Pipe bursts as a result of transients and surges within a piping network are very common problems throughout the world. Not only are the maintenance costs of these repairs extremely expensive, but when you add in possible litigation for third party damages, combined with the potentially significant value (cost) of the lost water, you can quickly realize the significance of what may appear simply as “another pipe burst”. By Brad Clarke, Singer Valve Inc.
