Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility Prevents Energy Waste With Eaton’s Motor Insight
    4/26/2017

    To ensure real-time monitoring of pump motor status at its five lift pumping stations, Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility, Sheboygan, WI, replaced its bi-metallic overload relays with Eaton’s Motor Insight™ overload and monitoring relays.

  2. ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?
    12/12/2016

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.

  3. Case Study: Ambitious Water Quality Study Could Guide Development For Years
    5/25/2006
    The City of Kissimmee, Fla., has embarked on an ambitious water quality study that could provide a road map for development in the fast-growing tourist mecca – and save millions of dollars as the city begins to comply with water quality regulations

  6. Worry-Free Water Metering With Advanced Electromagnetic Technology
    2/24/2017

    Accurate measurement of water consumption across a large metropolitan area is no easy task, but for a water company it can mean the difference between profitability and throwing money down the drain. That’s why City West Water, a major water supplier to residential, commercial and industrial sites in and around the city of Melbourne, Australia, has been working with Siemens for more than a decade to install SITRANS F M MAG 8000 electromagnetic water meters at high-consumption sites and in fire service applications.

  7. Case Study: Metering Accuracy is Critical To The Success Of Toronto’s Innovative Deep Lake Water Cooling
    6/7/2007
    The city of Toronto has capitalized on a valuable asset lying 272 feet below the surface of Lake Ontario – icy cold water that remains at a constant 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit all year round. Since August 2004, this previously-untapped resource has been supplying economical and environmentally-friendly air conditioning to large buildings in the city’s downtown
  8. Accurate Gas Flow Measurement Improves Water Disinfection Process Efficiency
    12/3/2017

    Many of today’s large urban water treatment plants rely upon sophisticated chlorination processes in order to provide clean, sanitary water to millions of consumers in the US and around the globe. The efficiency and cost-effective operation of chlorination processes in water treatment facilities can be significantly improved with the installation of flow meters that accurately measure the flow of chlorine gas in the treatment process

  9. Taste and Odor Compounds in Drinking Water (Fact Sheet)
    2/22/2011

    The primary sources of taste and odor problems in drinking water are algae and bacteria.

  10. ORP And pH — What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
    11/15/2016

    When I look back at 2016 one of the most significant trends I observed was the growing acceptance of ORP measurements, especially for monitoring disinfection. With one caveat, the ORP value measured in a solution provides an unambiguous measure of the disinfection efficacy.
