Drinking Water Treatment Application Notes

  1. VFD Energy Savings For Pumping Applications

    In the early days of variable frequency drive (VFD) technology, the typical application was in process control for manufacturing synthetic fiber, steel bars, and aluminum foil.

  2. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Are Widely Used In The Soft Drink And Brewing Industries To Control Dissolved Gasses

    Gas control is an important concern in the beverage industry. Oxygen in the water can oxidize flavor components and shorten the shelf life of the product. Carbon dioxide can also have an impact on taste and pH of the product.

  3. Application Note: Simultaneous Determination Of Total Bound Nitrogen (TNb) And Total Organic Carbon (TOC) In Aqueous Samples
    Total bound nitrogen (TNb) consists of dissolved ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, amines, and other organic nitrogen-containing compounds. TNb measurements represent an alternative to Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) analysis for rapid screening of industrial wastewater, drinking water,agricultural run-off, and surface waters. By OI Analytical
  4. Application Bulletin: Reverse Osmosis
    Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached
  5. Validation Of Environmental Water Methods On One System

    Water quality laboratories across the nation are faced with both a rising level of water quality awareness amongst the general public, as well as rising costs in water quality monitoring. As a result, laboratories are looking for more efficient ways to provide higher quality monitoring.

  6. Comparison of UV vs. Sodium Hypochlorite (Fact Sheet)

    Hypochlorite has some significant environmental concerns associated with DBPs and residual toxicity.

  7. Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency

    One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.

  8. Accurately Measuring Network Leakage

    The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.

  9. Determination Of Pesticide Residues In Honey, By An Automated QuEChERS Solution

    The QuEChERS (Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe) sample extraction method was developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities.

  10. Capturing Ammonia In Flue Gas Condensate Treatment For Biomass Power Stations With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    Heat and power generation in biofuel engine cogeneration plants has become increasingly important as process industries look for more economical and environmentally friendly ways to produce energy.
