  3. How To Destroy Pathogens And Micropollutants With Ozone
    10/26/2017

    Utilities continually face new challenges. Where treatment facilities were once expected to simply disinfect the water, they must now avoid creating disinfection byproducts during the process. New and more stringent regulations require removal of additional micropollutants and emerging contaminants. Finding the best technology to accomplish these goals can be difficult.

  5. A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves
    1/9/2017

    Water management professionals know all too well that problems arise — usually sometime after 2 a.m., or just as you’re walking out the door for a holiday weekend. No matter how well-prepared you are, or how sophisticated your system, sometimes you’re going to run into challenges. It’s simply the nature of the industry. When you experience an issue with your valves (especially when they’re failing to open or close as expected) your first instinct is to call the factory for support. While some cases may require factory assistance, this isn’t always the most efficient solution.

    Are you confused about how to incorporate technology into FSMA compliance? If so, you are not alone. This article offer suggestions on how to apply technology at your plant to comply with FSMA.

  10. The Challenge Of Flow Disturbances On Meter Accuracy
    7/10/2018

    Accurately measuring flow is critical for water utility operations. Also, regulatory agencies mandate flow monitoring and require annual calibration of meters. But even a meter in perfect condition and properly calibrated can read inaccurately. Flow disturbances are a common cause of accuracy and repeatability errors.
