    7/6/2017

    The next big thing is here and it’s the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With pundits waxing philosophical on this big breakthrough, it’s hard to cut through the noise and understand what the IIoT actually is and how it applies to individual plants. I offer the following as a definition. The IIoT means collecting, interpreting, and applying data to actively improve processes or operations. To understand how the IIoT applies to a wastewater treatment plant, look no further than your front yard.

    Behind every super-accurate instrument is chemistry that relies on near-perfection to work. In the case of colorimetric instruments commonly used to analyze water for specific impurities, this often involves multiple reagents made from high purity chemicals designed to react within specified times and precise concentrations. If any element does not work, the entire process fails. The same also applies to the calibration standards; it’s vital that what’s on the label is exactly what’s in the bottle.
