    10/23/2013

    This brief memo will provide a snapshot of data and information from BlueInGreen’s most recent CDOX® success at a 120 MGD municipal water treatment plant in the Midwest.

  3. 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. 

  4. City Solves Reliability And Maintenance Problems For WTP Hypo Feeds
    8/13/2014

    A municipal water quality manager reports replacement of sodium hypochlorite (hypo) vacuum feeder units with a more advanced type at one water treatment plant (WTP) has helped allow for continued reliability for chlorination.

  5. Filtration Avoidance in Surface Water - North Tahoe, California (Case Study)
    11/30/2011

    With its mountain beauty and deep, clear waters, Lake Tahoe is one of the most popular vacation spots in the California/Nevada area.

  6. Evaluation Of Ceraflow-50 As A Filtration Media For Hexavalent Chromium Treatment
    6/1/2018

    Pilot testing was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of 4 filter media, including Ceraflow-50, as part of a reduction coagulation filtration (RCF) treatment process for the removal of hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) from groundwater. This evaluation was conducted at multiple well sites for a water utility in California.

  7. Reservoir Overcomes Toxic Algae Issue
    6/16/2015

    A Nebraska reservoir was experiencing toxic algae in its water. Constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) primarily as a flood control reservoir with recreation and irrigation as secondary uses, the reservoir has a surface area of 700+ acres with an average depth of almost 12 feet.

  8. Santa Monica, CA Case Study
    12/22/2011
    The City of Santa Monica shut down the Charnock well fields in 1996 after finding methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and later trichloroethylene (TCE) and 1,1-Dichloroethene (1,1-DCE) in the water.
  9. A Legacy Of Clean Water
    3/22/2016

    Helping to maintain clean water is part of the Whalen family history, a story that begins in the mid-1990s with a father’s fervent belief that his research could make a difference and his son’s intense desire to ensure it did.
