Drinking Water Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. What's Faulty — Your Treatment Or Your Testing?
    9/29/2017

    The primary reason for laboratory testing at a water or wastewater plant is to determine if the facilities are meeting regulatory limits. Both proper operation and accurate testing are of utmost importance to ensure compliance. However, regulators and operators must consider limitations of the test methodology, as they may affect analysis results. The last thing any plant manager wants is unwarranted problems as a result of faulty analysis.

  2. 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.

  3. Ammonia Monochloramine Analyzer Helps Utility Control Chloramination
    5/13/2015

    In chloramination, continuous online monitoring and increased frequency of measurements allow you to react faster to changes in water quality. The Bachman WTP in Dallas, TX tested the new Hach 5500sc Ammonia Monochloramine Analyzer against other lab and process analyzers.  Read the full case study to see how the increased frequency of the 5500sc AMC measurements allow the Bachman Plant to react faster to water quality changes and further optimize their chloramination processes. Dr. Vadim B. Malkov, Product Applications Manager

  4. Chlorine vs. Chloramine: A Tale Of Two Chemistries
    4/17/2018

    In drinking water treatment’s ongoing battle between disinfection and disinfection byproducts (DBPs), most water utility customers are oblivious to the process. One thing they do notice, however, is when their water smells or tastes bad. Here are some insights that can help water treatment plant (WTP) operators deal with their internal concerns about DBPs and residual chlorine or ammonia levels, as well as their external concerns about customer perceptions of water quality.

  7. 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.

  8. How Experts Justify The Cost Of Comprehensive SCADA In Drinking Water Plants
    5/31/2016

    Due to their critical role in protecting the health of customers, drinking water treatment systems require a high degree of care and oversight.

  9. WaterGEMS® Prioritizes Manila Water Facilities For Disaster Resiliency And Contingency Plan
    2/1/2018

    Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and typhoons that cause catastrophic losses. Manila Water Company, Inc., prepared a Natural Calamity Risk Resiliency and Mitigation Masterplan to ensure that there is a reliable water supply in the event of a natural disaster for the service area covering the East Zone of Metro Manila (the National Capital Region) and Rizal Province.
