  1. 3 Dirty Little Secrets About Coriolis Flow Meters

    Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.

  2. 3 Public Works Professionals Tap Technology To Address Infrastructure Challenges

    The digital revolution has reached our utilities, but not everyone is taking advantage of how it can, for example, make water and wastewater cleaner, healthier, and more efficient. National news media seemingly report daily on U.S. infrastructure, but they rarely get down in the trenches with the public works professionals who are accomplishing so much. Three of them, who are using the Internet of Things (IoT) to better manage critical assets, tell their stories here.

  3. Water And Wastewater Pipeline Infrastructure Opportunities

    There is little doubt that America’s infrastructure is aging, and in some cases, operating well beyond its originally intended lifespan. With labor costs representing up to half of the cost of pipe replacement, the key to cost-effective water and wastewater utility strategies revolves as much around labor-saving installation efficiency as it does around the physical performance of a particular material. Here is a look at historic failure rates, causes, and factors to consider when replacing existing water distribution and sewer networks.
