  1. 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.

  2. Free Chlorine Measurement In Drinking Water Treatment
    12/21/2005

    Before water can be used as a safe and reliable source for drinking water, it must be properly treated. Since water is a universal solvent, it comes in contact with several different pathogens, some of which are potentially lethal, and inactivation is accomplished through chemical disinfection and mechanical filtration treatment. This treatment consists of coarse filtration to remove large objects and pre-treatment which includes disinfection using chlorine or ozone

  3. 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.

  4. Loop Calibration Made Easy

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Continuous Total Chlorine Measurement And Recording To Meet EPA Discharge Requirements
    11/21/2011

    Total chlorine can be determined using the Rosemount Model TCL. This system is a sample conditioning and measuring system for the continuous determination of total chlorine in water.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Point Versus Continuous Level Measuring Technologies
    11/7/2017

    While point level measuring approaches are regarded as simple and user friendly, they lack the capabilities of more sophisticated continuous measuring instruments.
