Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Ozone-On-Demand™ Reduces Water Treatment Cost By 20%
    11/15/2012

    Pinnacle Ozone Solutions’ new generation of smart Ozone-On-Demand (OOD™) generator and control technology can help significantly reduce the cost and complexity of ozone water treatment.

  2. Asset Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Networks
    2/1/2018

    Water and wastewater leaders are unsung heroes. Clean, safe water is essential to human life and to the well-being of the environment, yet it is grossly underfunded. Limited resources lead to deferred maintenance and difficult decisions.

  3. Automatic In-Situ Verification Of Accuracy For CoriolisMaster Mass Flowmeters
    5/9/2017

    Users often question whether their measuring devices are working properly and within specified measurement accuracy. The new CoriolisMaster flowmeter models by ABB include technology for integrated online diagnosis and accuracy verification. This technology constantly monitors the oscillating meter tube within the flowmeter for erosion and coating deposits.

  4. Advantages Of Thermal Dispersion Switches For Pump Protection
    7/1/2014

    Thermal dispersion switches use similar principles as thermal mass flow meters. Fluid carries heat away from the probe tip reducing the temperature difference between a heated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and a reference RTD.

  5. WSSC Achieves Over 60% Reduction In Hydraulic Plan Review for Water And Wastewater Systems
    12/1/2016

    Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) Development Services Group reviews hydraulic plans for approximately 160 proposed development plans per year. This includes water and sewer system extensions as well as approximately 172 small-site utility plans (commercial private systems) that connect to the existing water and sewer network in two large Maryland counties.

  6. Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring
    3/18/2009
    Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) is a progressive supplier of potable water. With source water from the Adirondack Mountains, MVWA works to improve on nature and provide superior water quality, always striving to meet or exceed drinking water standards. Like many other surface water sources, MVWA’s water supply is rich with natural organic matter (NOM). Unfortunately, growing research has demonstrated that NOM in water when combined with chlorine leads to the formation of potentially harmful disinfection by-products.
  7. Case Study: Leveraging Data To Optimize Operations And Manage Budgetary Pressure
    5/23/2011
    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
  8. Rural Water Plant Finds Leak With Clamp-On Flowmeter
    1/31/2016

    A rural water treatment plant in the Southwestern U.S. treats, stores, and distributes 325,00 gallons per day of water to the village it serves. The village consumes an average of 125,000 gallons a day and can store up to 1 million gallons. Unfortunately, the treatment plant was also losing 210,000 gallons a day due to an unknown leak.

  9. Precise Biogas Flow Measurement
    4/25/2016

    As oil prices remain high, we are in the midst of a nation-wide initiative to seek renewable sources of energy to increase energy efficiency and energy security. Renewable energy accounted for 13.2% of the domestically produced electricity in 2012. Among the sources of renewable energy is the production of biogas from landfill gas (LFG) or digester gas.
