Drinking Water Measurement

  1. Balancing The Yin And Yang Of Water Pressure

    All the effort and expense required to produce high-quality water can be for naught if the distribution system cannot maintain appropriate pressure to deliver it efficiently, at a reliable flow rate. Simply pumping more pressure into the system is not the answer. Learn how new pressure monitoring options make it easier to track pressure in every zone to deliver customer satisfaction at peak energy efficiency.

  2. Comparing Benefits Of V-Cone® And Coriolis Meters

    Proper operation of water treatment processes depends on accurate flow measurements. Also, flow data is often required by regulatory agencies.

  3. Accurate Metering For Every Water Consumer’s Habits

    Utilities looking for greater billing efficiency and control over every drop of water consumed by their customers face a constant battle with non-revenue water loss, which can be compounded by different metering technologies and consumer behaviors. Using accurate, always-on, continuous-sampling meters to take full advantage of automated smart utility networks is a better way to improve decision-making and achieve accountability goals across any circumstances.

  4. Quantifying The Benefits Of High-Volume Meter Testing

    “I know that (blank) is good for me; I just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet!” Most of us can fill in that blank with any number of tasks — modifying diets, exercising, or monitoring commercial and industrial (C&I) water meter accuracy at our largest utility accounts. If that last item is still on your “to-do” list, here are several good reasons why you should do it and how to make it happen soon.

  5. Making Turbidity Readings Consistent, Reliable, And Compatible

    When water treatment plant (WTP) instrument readings impact regulatory compliance, any discrepancy between laboratory and inline instrument readings can be disconcerting. Fortunately, improved sensor technologies and Mobile Sensor Management capabilities can enhance operator confidence in managing the significance of those readings throughout WTP processes.

  6. Claros Data Management: Big-Picture Data Brings Clarity To Water Treatment Efficiency

    Dealing with the chemistry, biology, and engineering of local source waters and their seasonal variations is quite familiar to experienced water treatment plant (WTP) operators. It is monitoring, analyzing, and reporting WTP performance under changing conditions that gets complicated. That is where a comprehensive Data Management Solution (Claros WIMS Water Information Management System and Claros Collect) can prove its value, especially if labor resources are limited.

  7. Automating Field Readings For Better Water Distribution Management

    Water distribution systems can be just as critical to the ultimate delivery of high-quality water as central water treatment plant (WTP) operations, even if the cost and complexity of monitoring distributed water quality can be proportionally higher. Monitoring field-collected data with the same timeliness and accuracy as online plant instrumentation goes a long way toward safeguarding consumer satisfaction.

  8. Instrumental Solutions For Better Process And Data Management

    Generating accurate data is essential for maintaining water treatment plant (WTP) process efficiency and regulatory compliance. Here are multiple considerations for automating critical instrument monitoring and management activities that can help generate reliable data as a means of supporting timely decision-making, accurate compliance, and maximum confidence in WTP performance.

  9. HVAC Efficiency – The Benefits Of Optimizing Your Heating And Cooling

    There has been no shortage of studies, discussions and debates surrounding the concept of energy efficiency over the past 40 years. Scientific studies suggest a relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change, strengthening the belief that human activity was harming the environment.

  10. Electromagnetic Meters And Ultrasonic Meters — A Comparison

    Water and wastewater professionals rely on accurate flow measurements for process operation and regulatory compliance. Selecting the best flow meter for each application is essential to obtaining accurate flow data.
