Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Ultrasonic vs. Radar In The Water Industry
    6/30/2017

    In recent years, the debate about which technology is best suited for level monitoring and open channel monitoring (OCM) applications has taken some traction. There are those who argue that ultrasonic level technology has been uncontested as the standard for level and OCM applications in the water industry. The counter-argument is that radar technology is more effective because it is more robust and accurate than ultrasonic technology. 

  2. Treatment Plant Modernized To Meet EPA Turbidity Regulations
    6/25/2014

    GF Piping Systems technology and its unique approach to business are an integral part of Akron’s plant improvement plans.

  3. Integrated Membrane Facility In The City Of Delaware, Ohio
    10/11/2017

    To better comply with the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) the City of Delaware (Ohio) piloted Torayfil hollow-fiber PVDF membrane modules to treat surface water for their 7.2 mgd full-scale facility. After significant review of the data, cost, and other factors, the City and URS selected Toray to utilize in the full scale design. Read the full case study to learn more.

  4. White Paper: Comparing Conventional Settling Basin Clarification To Leopold Clari-DAF System Clarification
    5/31/2006
    The source waters for the Greenville Water System were so clear that for over 70 years the water from the mountain reservoirs was unfiltered and only treated with chlorine. However, in the mid-1980s, the Adkins Plant, designed at 30 MGD and employing conventional settling basin clarification technology, was built to filter water drawn from Lake Keowee. Increasing regulations required all surface water systems to be filtered, so a new state-of-the-art filter plant was placed in service to provide filtration for all of the water drawn from the Table Rock and Poinsett Reservoirs. This paper compares the performances of the two treatment processes, given the fact that the source water is very similar and the treatment chemicals are identical
  5. New Meters And AMR System Deliver Outstanding Revenue Savings And Improved Efficiencies In Ozark Mountain Region
    5/7/2014

    Tri County Regional Water upgrades to Badger Meter E-Series® Ultrasonic meters and ORION® Classic (CE) automatic meter reading (AMR) solution.

  6. Concrete Manufacturing Operation Meets Permit Requirements With PH Control System
    1/30/2014

    In order to meet its discharge permit limits, a ready-mix concrete manufacturing operation needed to neutralize its high pH process water. Staff installed a control system that automatically detects a rise in pH and treats the water with a modular in-line carbon dioxide feed system. The operation can now recycle treated water for rinsing trucks, supply recycled water into the concrete batching operation, and safely discharge the water into the environment.

  7. In-Situ Oxygenation System Enables Increase In Capacity For Municipal Wastewater Treatment Facility
    6/16/2016

    To increase capacity within the existing footprint of a wastewater treatment facility in Michigan, two existing tanks were converted to aeration tanks with pure-oxygen aeration provided by Praxair’s In-Situ Oxygenation (I-SOTM) System.

  8. Australian Cities Adopt Wastewater Reuse
    6/27/2018

    Potable reuse of wastewater has gone by many different names, some of them unflattering, like “toilet to tap.” Despite the clear benefits of water reuse, this so-called “ick factor” has slowed the adoption of technology that can transform wastewater into drinking water.

  9. Micro Media Filtration Proving Effective In Produced Water Softening Systems
    5/14/2012

    Having an eff ective, durable pretreatment system in advance of ion exchange produced-water softening systems is the fi rst, most critical line of defense – ensuring smooth, more troublefree performance downstream.

  10. Insta-Valve 250 Patriot Works Under Pressure
    8/28/2017

    Buchanan County had a project which required repairs to a pumping station that boosts the pressure high enough to get water to a tank at the top of a mountain. The line pressure needed to accomplish this is 250 psi. After considering options, Buchanan County selected the Hydra-Stop Insta-Valve 250 Patriot. Read the full project profile to learn more.
