Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Improving Wastewater Treatment With Air Flow Instrumentation
    12/7/2017

    In wastewater treatment plants, a variety of processes are employed to eliminate organic pollutants from water to ensure its safety and release for future uses. One of the most common processes is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins.

  2. The Benefits Of A Venturi Meter
    2/19/2014

    With the introduction of new measurement technologies and the myriad of performance claims from sale literature, it’s easy to lose sight of the important elements that an effective flow meter offers no matter what technology is used. Long known for their longevity, reliability, and long term performance, Venturi meters provide the widest variety of measurement options in piped systems for liquids, gas, steam, and mixed media of any metering technology – all while offering the highest degree of traceable accuracy.

  3. Local Support Saves Time And Money
    2/1/2016

    At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

  4. Sabesp Improves The Anhangabaú Sewer Collection System Below Projected Cost
    12/1/2015

    Sabesp provides water to and collects sewage from over half of the cities in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, including São Paulo the state capital and the country’s largest city. The utility is currently in the process of upgrading the Anhangabaú sewer system, which consists of 122.88 kilometers of sewer conduit network, with 1,749 manholes and 14,832 household connections serving an estimated 400,000 inhabitants.

  5. FMCW Or ToF? Which Radar Level Technology Is Best For Tank Gauging In Custody Transfer Applications?
    4/9/2018

    Measuring the level of tanks used to hold fluids for custody transfer can be expensive. This is not due to the cost of the measurement instrumentation, but to what inaccurate measurements can cost the company. Picking the right instrumentation for applications is important. Which radar level technology should you choose for tank gauging in custody transfer applications? Frequency Modulated Continuous Waveform (FMCW) or pulsed Time-of-Flight (ToF or PToF).

  6. Advanced Metering Analytics And Hi-Res Ultrasonic Meters Create A Winning Combination
    2/9/2015

    When Waterworks District 3 of Beauregard Parish, La., began to research new water meters to replace its aging system, it didn’t take long to decide that the BEACON AMA managed solution was the right fit.

  7. 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.

  8. The Value Of Continuous Instrumentation To The Operator & Why Manufacturers Should Listen To Their Needs
    7/2/2013

    When I began my career as a power plant chemist most continuous analyzers were trending devices at best.  Conductivity was the most reliable analyzer and the temperature compensation algorithms were marginal.  Sample conditioning with respect to sample temperature control was not very good as well.

  9. Hydraulic Modeling For Esri© ArcGIS Users
    2/15/2018

    Water and wastewater networks are inherently geospatial, comprising interconnected assets that are often underground, buried beneath urban and rural communities.
