  1. Improved Process Control: Putting ‘Knowledge Is Power’ To Work
    10/20/2017

    You can’t control what you don’t know and when it comes to gas mixtures, control is of vital importance. But how can you get a handle on all of the elements you’re processing at a given time?

  2. The Integral AutoCal For 6888 InSitu Oxygen Probe Demo
    11/10/2014

    Doug Simmers, Product Manager, talks about the 6888 In-Situ Flue Gas Oxygen Analyzer and the Integral AutoCal feature.

  3. 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

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Loop Calibration Made Easy
    1/29/2013

    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.

  8. 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.
