    The key to selecting a blender that will blend powders together into uniform mixes, also called "bulk solids," are the material's flow characteristics.

  4. Advanced Metering Analytics: The Logical Evolution Of AMI
    5/30/2018

    Just as different water utilities use different processes for turning raw source water into potable drinking water, so too do they take different routes to account for, and bill for, their output. Here is an overview of a cellular-based approach to collecting and leveraging data from water distribution operations that can achieve the greatest business advantage.

    Operational savings realized through high-tech leak detection techniques could pay for your utility’s advanced leak detection equipment.

  9. Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers
    4/18/2018

    As with so many other drinking water treatment processes, corrosion control demands a delicate balance among multiple factors. From the water-purifying chlorine that increases corrosion risk, to alternative strategies that reduce corrosion — using either elevated pH or phosphates — keeping corrosion under control requires sound strategy and reliable execution. Here are several approaches to addressing those conditions, along with options for better, more effective corrosion control.
