Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Local Support Saves Time And Money
    2/1/2016

    At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

    A wide range of issues can disrupt the normal functioning of an urban water system, such as storms and other natural disasters, pollution, physical damage, cyber incidents, aging and insufficient infrastructure, and rapid urban growth.

  3. DM Petroleum Operations Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter For Tough U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve Application
    10/15/2014

    New tests recently performed by DM Petroleum Operations Company with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter from McCrometer continue to confirm the flow meter’s accurate performance and reliability on two rugged Texas brine disposal lines supporting the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

  4. United Utilities Adopts Collaborative BIM Strategy To Deliver Over 200 Water Projects
    12/19/2017

    Privatization of the United Kingdom’s (UK) water industry 25 years ago required providers to implement asset management programs (AMP) whereby water boards tendered contracts to construction firms to update the industry’s antiquated assets and help keep infrastructure properly maintained. 

  5. Reducing Costs of Steam Flow Measurement
    9/9/2016

    Traditionally, steam flow has been measured with a differential pressure device. This is typically an orifice plate. However, such devices are inherently volumetric flow measurements. As we have discussed in previous blog posts, changes in pressure and temperature will change the mass flow rate of steam.

  6. Case Study: Leveraging Data To Optimize Operations And Manage Budgetary Pressure

    Budgetary pressure on water utilities continues to grow due to factors such as new infrastructure demands, increasing regulatory compliance requirements, and the scarcity or declining quality of source water. By Gabi Miles, Hach Company
  7. Carbon Dioxide For pH Control Of Landfill Leachate
    6/16/2016

    A landfill operator’s leachate treatment plant in Missouri required pH reduction following lime-softening and prior to the biological wastewater treatment process. Carbon dioxide (CO2) was chosen as a substitute for sulfuric acid due to improved process control and a reduced tendency to form scale.
