Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Mass Flow Meter Best Practices For Water Treatment
    12/6/2017

    Air/gas mass flow meters find a variety of applications in many of today’s large urban water treatment plants, both clean water and wastewater. From measuring disinfection gases to controlling air or gas flow in digesters and aeration systems, the proper application, installation and operation of mass flow meters improves process efficiency as well as end product quality while at the same time reducing plant operating costs

  2. Cyanide Analysis Of Wastewater Samples From FCC And Hydrocracking Operations
    6/21/2013

    Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is a major unit operation in refineries around the world. FCC is used to convert lowvalue, high molecular weight feedstocks such as shale oil, tar sands oil, and coker gas oils into lighter, high-value products by “cracking” C-C bonds.

  3. How Meter Nozzles Can Deliver Accuracy In Municipal Treatment Facilities
    5/16/2013

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency claims there are approximately 155,000 public water systems in the nation and the public drinking water systems regulated by EPA provide drinking water to 90 percent of Americans. To put this in perspective, a family of four statistically uses 400 gallons of water daily. By Jeff Smith, Primary Flow Signal

  4. Source Water Monitoring Case Studies And Solutions
    8/25/2011
    Protecting the sources of drinking water is a key concern among water professionals. We rely on water for our most basic needs. As we have observed since the beginning of the industrial revolution, there are many threats to the quality of this water.
  5. Water Surge Prevention: Analysis Of Solutions And Alternatives
    9/18/2014

    Water Surge could cause damage in a water conveyance system, from leaking pipes to serious breakdowns and accidents the consequences of which could lead to heavy financial costs and even loss of life.  There are various solutions that are able to prevent or reduce the damage.  It is important to know the differences between the solutions, and the advantages and disadvantages of each technology, before recommending the most suitable solution for the system.

  6. Two Phase Flow Considerations For Coriolis Meters
    7/8/2014

    Two phase flow is notoriously problematic for most flow technologies. Read how ABB is tackling the 2-phase flow problem through an entire meter-design approach, which entails a state of the art electronics platform and innovative sensor technology. By Ron DiGiacomo

  7. Article: Validation Of Online Monitors Using EPA 334.0 And EPA-Approved Or Accepted Laboratory Meter Reporting Methods
    8/25/2010
    There has long been verification testing between lab and online instrumentation for water quality measurements, especially for Drinking Water and Wastewater (DW//WW). By Jane L. Stevens, Product Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific
  8. Optimize Energy And Resource Usage
    2/17/2015

    Through the implementation of a WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity and Steam) monitoring solution, a brewery was able to optimize energy and resource usage while boosting capacity to meet the demands of U.S. customers. Water usage costs were reduced by 28%; the brewery’s carbon footprint was reduced creating a savings of $2 million/year from CO2 recovery; compressed air usage was reduced by 15%; and fuel oil costs were reduced by $34,000.

  9. Precision Air/Gas Flow Measurement Helps Turn Landfills Into Green Electric Power Generators
    12/1/2017

    A leading supplier of landfill gas extraction and recovery systems located in the Midwest region of the US relies on flow meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) for gas flow measurements in landfills. The company has developed hundreds of landfill gas system flares and extraction system skids that are in operation worldwide, which all require accurate gas flow measurement.

  10. Monitoring Lead In School Drinking Water
    5/23/2016

    The EPA’s guidance documentation “3T’s for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities: Training, Testing, Telling” recommends for schools to routinely test their facility’s drinking water, with a focus on lead levels in drinking water fountains.
