Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Revolutionizing Asset Management In The Water/Wastewater Industry
    4/17/2018

    The industrial world is awash with data and new information from sensors, applications, equipment, and people.

  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. AMERICAN Valve And Pipe Groups Join Forces To Serve The Citizens Of Eastern Pennsylvania
    5/8/2014

    Together, AMERICAN Flow Control and AMERICAN Ductile Iron Pipe are providing a complete package of valves, hydrants and pipe for a new waterline to serve the eastern Pennsylvania communities of North Wales and Chalfont Borough.

  4. Are You Experiencing Deviation Alarms In Your High Pressure Process Vessels?
    4/9/2018

    In this white paper, learn how to decrease alarms due to redundant level devices not matching, especially in applications with high pressure and/or high temperature. The importance of Gas Phase Compensation (GPC) and how it affects level readings of guided wave radar (GWR) devices is critical. The presence of polar gas also can have an effect on the accuracy of any GWR that does not have GPC when installed in applications where high temperature or pressure is present. This paper will discuss these issues and address how to overcome them.

  5. Keep Your Pumps Running Smoothly To Optimize Process Efficiency
    12/1/2017

    Industrial pumps consume up to 20% of the world’s energy production and can be responsible for 25 to 50% of a process plant’s energy bill, according to Europump, the Hydraulic Institute and other sources. Nothing moves without them in a process plant, and they are expensive to purchase, maintain and even more to repair or replace. Reducing pump lifecycle costs (their purchase, operation and maintenance) is critical in a process plant optimizing efficiency and product output. The process and the surrounding equipment configuration can be responsible for unnecessary high pump lifecycle costs.

  6. Improving Flow Measurement Accuracy With Flow Conditioners
    12/1/2017

    When looking for a way to reduce plant operating costs, one of the potentially simplest and often least expensive solutions is to measure liquid and gas flow more accurately. Plant upgrade projects that focus on the continuous improvement of flow measurement and control can trim overall production costs by eliminating waste and reducing maintenance costs.

  7. Is There A Correlation Between ATP And Other Traditional Microbiological Methods?
    12/7/2017

    Perhaps the most common question that we’re asked is how our ATP tests correlate with traditional microbiological methods.  Unsurprisingly, when people are used to getting their information in a certain way, they naturally want to know how a new method will stack up against it.  However, the mechanisms of culture-based techniques and ATP analyses are completely different, and in many ways, so are the results they produce. 

  8. Thermal Dispersion Technology Helps Utility Meet Federal Environmental And Health Regulations
    11/15/2013

    Many water quality plants are using flow controls to help achieve critical operational goals. This recent case study shows how thermal dispersion flow meters can help your plant ensure compliance with stringent government regulations.

  9. Next Generation FPI Mag Flow Meter Helps Provide Clean Water For Seattle
    10/15/2014

    The Cedar Water Treatment Facility (CWTF) serves the residents of the City of Seattle. This state-of-the-art plant was designed and built, and is now operated by CH2M Hill.  Working together, CH2M Hill and McCrometer improved flow measurement at the facility with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter.

  10. Ultrasonic Vs. Radar Level Technology In The Water Industry
    3/13/2017

    In recent years, the debate about which technology is best suited for water and wastewater level measurement and monitoring is heating up. There are those who argue that ultrasonic level technology has been uncontested as the standard for level and open-channel measurement applications in the water industry.
