  1. Case Study: Newport News Uses Emerson Ozone Instrumentation For Safe, Effective Disinfection
    5/22/2006

    Maintaining the quality of the water supply is the top priority for municipal drinking water treatment plants across the country. Water plants use several treatment processes to ensure water quality and safety, and these treatment steps include disinfection. Traditionally, chlorine is used in both primary and secondary disinfection treatments and has been used since 1908. Some water plants are moving to ozone for primary disinfection. One water utility that is taking this direction is Newport News Waterworks. 

  2. 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
  3. Coagulation and Flocculation
    9/18/2013

    Water is clarified using the processes of coagulation and flocculation, which remove suspended solids (turbidity) from water by causing the suspended particles to aggregate into a slime, that settles out of the water.

  4. Emerson Introduces The Industry’s First Wireless Pressure Gauge To Help Plants Improve Operations
    9/14/2017

    Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced the industry’s first WirelessHART® pressure gauge. The Rosemount Wireless Pressure Gauge enables remote collection of field data, keeping operators updated on changing field conditions and improving personnel safety by reducing manual operator rounds and field exposure.

    The 56 advanced analyzer supports continuous measurement of analytical inputs from one or two sensors. The modular design allows signal input boards to be field replaced, making configuration changes easy. The high resolution full-color display gives unsurpassed visibility and functionality for analytical instrumentation.

  6. SMART pH Sensors And Instruments For Plug And Play Use
    2/27/2013

    Linda Meyers explains how SMART pH sensors and instruments help customers solve challenges like calibrating sensors in remote locations where buffer solutions, beakers, and a rinse bottle must all be carried on site, making it cumbersome and time consuming.

  7. Essential Answers To Important pH Questions – Part 1
    6/16/2015

    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.

  8. How One Plant Found Great Service Through Turbidity Analyzers
    10/3/2016

    The nearly 16,000 people in Calhoun, GA, rely on two drinking water treatment facilities — one that pulls its water from a river and another that pulls from groundwater — that process about 9 MGD. The turbidity of the river’s water can fluctuate dramatically, so the operators rely on the surface water treatment plant’s turbidity analyzers to ensure that they are serving the population as they should.

  9. Application Datasheet: Desalination Of Sea Water
    10/16/2006
    Areas with large, growing populations and little fresh water resources are increasingly turning to desalination for their water needs. Many industrial plants and electrical utilities are located by the ocean so that they can be assured of a large, dependable, fixed-cost water supply. Seawater, however, is so corrosive that it is generally more cost effective to remove the salt than to replace piping or install pipe of more resistant materials.
  10. Primary Wastewater Treatment: Influent Monitoring
    11/10/2013

    The raw sewage entering a wastewater treatment plant comes from a variety of sources. In addition to effluent from domestic users, effluent from industrial users and storm water run off can be present.
