Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Measuring pH And Its Role In Corrosion Control
    9/19/2018

    Corrosion control has always been a priority for distributing safe drinking water throughout the world’s networks of pipeline. This has become all the more critical following the outrageous lead poisoning revelations in Flint, MI — an incident caused directly by corrosion of the city’s lead-based infrastructure.

  2. Case Study: Optimized Quality Control In Mineral Water Plants
    4/16/2009

    Due to microbiological activity in the process, or to a lesser extent due to the reduction in nitrate levels in the raw water, nitrogen compounds may give rise to increased nitrite concentrations. By Endress + Hauser, Inc.

  3. Making Turbidity Readings Consistent, Reliable, And Compatible
    1/23/2019

    When water treatment plant (WTP) instrument readings impact regulatory compliance, any discrepancy between laboratory and inline instrument readings can be disconcerting. Fortunately, improved sensor technologies and Mobile Sensor Management capabilities can enhance operator confidence in managing the significance of those readings throughout WTP processes.

  4. Case Study: Continuous Monitoring Safeguards Malaysia’s Water Quality
    11/14/2007

    Well on the way to becoming a total environmental monitoring solutions provider, Alam Sekitar Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. has applied its expertise in air and water quality monitoring to aid the Malaysian government in safeguarding the nation's water supply. A broad contract between ASMA and Malaysia's Department of the Environment partners the two entities in a highly efficient system that gathers long-term trend data on water quality while also maintaining an early warning system to alert officials and water treatment operators of pollution discharges in key reaches of the country's river system

  5. 3 Keys To Flow Meters As Water Management Tools
    2/25/2016

    In an era when water scarcity, water quality and delivery costs are becoming urgent problems worldwide, the flow meter is more important than ever as a water management tool.    “You can’t manage what you don’t measure,” is a simple business truism, which summarizes the growing role of flow meters in many water process applications.

  6. Siemens Is Doing Its Part In Maintaining Drinking Water Purity
    7/19/2016

    Lead in drinking water has become a very visible issue of considerable concern over the last few months.  While municipalities across America have been scrutinizing the quality of their drinking water, it should at least be some consolation that manufacturers of measurement instrumentation have taken serious steps to assure that they are not contributing to the problems that have been encountered.

  7. What’s A Luminometer? And Why Should You Care?
    10/5/2016

    If you’re in the business of managing a water system — whether drinking water, wastewater or water used for industrial purposes — a luminometer can make your job easier.

  8. Clamp-On Ultrasonic Flowmeters: How They Measure Up
    11/28/2018

    Not cool enough in summer. Not warm enough in winter. Guests staying at a prestigious country club in New York state complained regularly about the air conditioning and heating of their luxury suites and apartments. The geothermal heat exchange system serving this facility had never, in fact, been fully functional.

  9. An 8-Point Checklist Of Pressure Gauge Application Best Practices
    10/1/2018

    As electronic measurement, microprocessor or computerized control, and wireless networking have worked their way deeper into industrial processes, new opportunities for accuracy, convenience, and cost-saving efficiency have multiplied. Electronic accuracy and communication have delivered performance advantages down to even the simplest functions — including pressure readings.

  10. The Challenge Of Flow Disturbances On Meter Accuracy
    7/10/2018

    Accurately measuring flow is critical for water utility operations. Also, regulatory agencies mandate flow monitoring and require annual calibration of meters. But even a meter in perfect condition and properly calibrated can read inaccurately. Flow disturbances are a common cause of accuracy and repeatability errors.
