  1. Essential Answers To Important pH Questions – Part 2
    6/19/2015

    pH measurement plays an important role in virtually every industrial process and an equally essential part in environmental regulatory compliance. Many of the below questions pop up every day whether in chemical processing plants, power plants, water and wastewater plants or biopharmaceutical processing.

  2. Rosemount X-Well Technology™ Is A Complete Point Solution For Accurately Measuring Process Temperature Without The Need For A Thermowell Or Process Penetration
    3/7/2017

    Emerson Automation Solutions introduces Rosemount X-well Technology, a surface sensing temperature measurement solution that eliminates the need for thermowell process penetration when measuring process temperatures in pipe applications.

     

  3. Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In Wastewater Treatment
    11/11/2013

    A wastewater treatment plant separates solids from the liquid, and consists of two basic stages: primary treatment and secondary treatment.

  4. Application Note: Turbidity Monitoring In Drinking Water Treatment Plants
    8/30/2005

    Turbidity, or the relative clarity of a liquid (in this case drinking water), is caused by the presence of microscopic particles such as clay, silt, or other fine undissolved matter

  5. Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements
    8/8/2014

    Homes, industry, schools, and businesses all generate sanitary waste, or sewage. Sewage treatment is a multistage process that cleans up wastewater before discharge or reuse. In the final step of the treatment, disinfectants are added to kill disease-causing organisms. Common disinfectants are chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dosage levels are designed to leave almost no residual in the wastewater after treatment

  6. New Emerson Combustion Control Analyzer For Small And Midsize Boiler Users Helps Meet Energy And Environmental Requirements
    4/4/2018

    To improve energy efficiency and meet environmental regulatory requirements for small and midsize boiler markets, Emerson introduces the Rosemount CX1100 in situ oxygen analyzer, the first high-performance, zirconia cell-based combustion control system designed for these users.

  7. Powering Safety Systems - Significant Power 'Headroom' Is Good Practice
    12/15/2014

    One of the most common sources of Fire and Gas detection system failure is power supply interruption and disturbance. Power supply specifications of an instrument refer to the voltage that must appear at the instrument power terminals, not the power supply rated output.

  8. Application Note: pH Control Protects Membranes In Reverse Osmosis
    8/30/2005

    Reverse osmosis is a technique for removing dissolved solids from filtered raw water. It is used in a variety of industries to condition water for plant use, or as a first step in the demineralization process

  9. Leak Detection Using Conductivity
    11/11/2013

    Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.

  10. Detecting Hydrogen Sulfide Gas And Understanding Its Danger In The Field
    1/2/2015

    Many oil fields, especially mature ones, can produce high levels of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), which is deadly at even low concentrations. As drilling and completions are often in remote locations, getting to the nearest hospital in time to respond to an exposure event could be impossible.
