Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Cyanide Analysis Of Wastewater Samples From FCC And Hydrocracking Operations
    6/21/2013

    Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is a major unit operation in refineries around the world. FCC is used to convert lowvalue, high molecular weight feedstocks such as shale oil, tar sands oil, and coker gas oils into lighter, high-value products by “cracking” C-C bonds.

  2. How To Ensure Accurate And Successful BOD Measurements
    3/25/2013

    YSI created this document to address some common problems that are encountered when conducting Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) testing.

  3. Louisiana Wastewater Treatment Facility Benefits From Siemens Product Support
    11/26/2015

    A municipal wastewater treatment facility located in Louisiana was having problems with a clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter that was supplied by a Siemens competitor.

  4. Dealing With The Highs And Lows Of Flow
    5/4/2015

    In February of 2014, due to severe drought conditions, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation informed central California farmers that they would receive no irrigation water from the lakes, canals and reservoirs under the Bureau’s control.

  5. Full Scale Installation: Village Of Bartlett, Illinois
    8/13/2012

    Located 35 miles northwest of Chicago, current population approximately 36,000. Average radium levels approximately 9 pCi/L. No other treatment, only the addition of chlorine and polyphosphate.

  6. Water Treatment for Industrial Reuse
    11/5/2014

    By making hypochlorite solution only as needed, the compact Constant Chlor unit brings efficiency, consistency to water reuse system.

  7. Ultimate Monitoring Solution For Biological Wastewater Treatment [Infographic]
    9/25/2015

    Wastewater treatment plant staff do their best to optimize the health of microbes in their bioreactor, but without a direct way to measure active biomass process optimization is a very difficult task to achieve.

  8. Miramar Reaps The Benefits Of Leak Detection
    3/29/2018

    In 2014, the City of Miramar was rapidly approaching their permitted source water limits, and eliminating water loss became a primary objective.

  9. South Australia’s $403 Million North South Interconnection System Project (NSISP) Uses A “Super” Valve To Perform In A Variety Of Extreme Conditions
    10/3/2014

    NSISP is one of South Australian Water Corporation’s (SA Water) biggest infrastructure projects undertaken in Adelaide metropolitan to connect the north and south drinking water distribution systems and to increase access to their desalination plant. The project included the construction of 32 km of pipeline through metropolitan main roads and suburban inner streets. This is no small feat and getting it done right meant fitting together a lot of different moving pieces.

  10. Arsenic Removed From Drinking Water With Iron Oxide Adsorption Treatment
    10/29/2013

    When high levels of arsenic were found in the drinking water in the community of Alto Lampa outside of Santiago de Chile, municipal water provider Aguas Adinas faced a predicament. AdEdge Water Technologies was contacted to design a treatment approach. This case study describes how iron oxide adsorption helped Alto Lampa reduce arsenic levels in treated water to non-detectable concentrations.
