Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Mass Or Volume? A Weight Off The Bottom Line
    1/12/2015

    Confusion often arises over the difference between mass and volume flow measurement and when a particular measurement should be applied.

  2. Continuous Phosphate Monitoring Improves Reliability
    11/11/2013

    When municipalities choose to manually feed phosphates into their potable water, this often creates an over-feed of chemicals. Learn how employing an automatic-dosing phosphate analyzer can reduce operating costs and improve reliability.

  3. Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help
    5/21/2009
    Superior water quality, it is why we treat our waters. All around the world we are continually striving to improve the safety of our drinking water to protect public health. However, how are we assuring the success of our efforts? UV254 testing provides valuable assurance about your water quality by detecting organic matter in water. This is something that turbidity can’t do. Just because you have low turbidity does not mean that you will have low organics. By Real Tech Inc.
  4. Singer Valve Improves Aussie Water Supply

    Without the right solution, aging water pipes, overflowing tanks and noisy valves can become chronic issues to a water retailer’s supply infrastructure.

  5. Water Treatment Analytics: A Road Map To Greater Efficiency
    6/5/2018

    From the largest metropolitan water treatment plant (WTP) or wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operations to the smallest rural systems, the goals are essentially the same — achieve regulatory compliance and the most efficient results at the lowest practical cost. The most feasible (i.e., affordable) control solutions vary by process, plant size, and budgetary limitations. Here are several high-level guidelines to achieving a common strategy that works across virtually all applications: good data, properly analyzed, yields good results.

  6. 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.

  7. New Electromagnetic Water Meter Technology Improves Accuracy And Reliability
    12/26/2012

    Electromagnetic water meters are becoming more and more popular for bulk measurement of residential and commercial drinking water, especially as pricing and metering gain traction as tools for more efficient use of water and water conservation.

  8. Utah Water District Saves Time And Resources, Improves Accuracy By Upgrading Sensors And Analyzers
    7/20/2015

    Monitoring chlorine and fluoride levels in the drinking water of Utah’s Taylorsville-Bennion Improvement District used to be expensive, labor intensive, and often sensitive to interference from the vari­able frequency drives used to operate the chlorine injection pumps. That is, until the district upgraded to Rosemount free chlorine and fluoride sen­sors and analyzers from Emerson.

  9. 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. 

  10. 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.
