Water Industry Features, Insights, & Analysis

  1. Virtual Reference Technology Saves Costs And Simplifies Flow Meter Installation At Desalination Plants
    5/30/2017

    As fresh water supplies dwindle, whether due to drought, contamination, or overuse, desalination becomes more attractive. Desalination plants must ensure proper flow measurement to monitor the resource — so proper installation and operation of these meters is extremely important.

  2. How To Use Biological Filtration To Meet Today’s Clean Water Challenges
    9/26/2017

    Utilities and industries need reliable and cost-effective treatment methods to protect critical water resources. Water professionals want proven technology to remove contaminants from drinking water, wastewater, and process water. These technologies must also be able to operate under a variety of flows and conditions.

  3. Helping Customers Find The Right Fit For Security
    4/26/2018

    When it comes to data security, there’s often a gap between what your clients think they need and what they really need. Your job as an MSP is to create and deploy a solution that will deliver both. But, determining what that solution is will require more than just checking off a list of features and capabilities.

  4. A More Efficient Approach To EPA Stage 2 DBP Compliance
    4/20/2018

    Everyone wants pathogen-free drinking water, and adding chlorine is a great way to get it. Unfortunately, the dirtier a water treatment plant (WTP)’s raw water inflow — in terms of natural organic matter (NOM) or microbial organisms — the more disinfection byproducts (DBPs) the chlorination process will generate in the form of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Those DBPs increase the risk of non-compliance with the U.S. EPA’s Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rules. Choosing the right instrumentation to measure NOM through spectral absorption coefficients (SACs) can have a big impact on treatment strategies — in terms of both costs and compliance performance.

  5. Lessons From Leonardo: What Leonardo da Vinci Can Teach Us About Water
    1/5/2018

    Salvator Mundi sold for nearly half a billion dollars. Walter Isaacson’s latest biography is a breakaway hit. Management guru Michael Gelb’s book accessing the thought techniques of history’s most accomplished Renaissance Man — in every literal and figurative sense of the word — is still a bestseller. Almost 500 years after his death, Leonardo da Vinci is still a superstar.

  6. Harmful Algae: How To Stay Ahead Of The Bloom
    3/20/2018

    It’s the call no water treatment plant superintendent wants to receive, especially not while on vacation. Andy McClure, Superintendent of Toledo, Ohio’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant, answered his phone to hear his head of operations report that the level of microcystin in the finished water was high, caused by a large harmful algal bloom (HAB) that was impacting the plant’s Lake Erie intake.

  7. The Vanguard of Patient Centricity: Patient-Led Clinical Trials
    4/12/2017

    Amid the AIDS epidemic during the late 80’s, Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, found himself at a crossroads. As a long-time proponent of the traditional “research to approval” drug development model, involving randomized clinical trials and lengthy regulatory reviews, Fauci was faced with the realization that this traditional approach would be of little benefit to AIDS patients without the luxury of time. Something had to be done. But what?

  8. Remote Monitoring For Water Quality And Public Health
    5/10/2018

    New technology helps utilities meet the challenges of maintaining a safe and adequate public water supply.

  9. NIROBOX™ SW Datasheet
    9/19/2017

    Leading the way in water, wastewater and reuse solutions, Fluence believes that everyone, everywhere deserves access to clean water. The NIROBOX™ family of containerized water treatment solutions challenges convention by providing advanced treatment technologies in an affordable and compact package. Nirobox offers the industry’s smallest overall footprint, which makes the units ideal for the industrial, municipal, and commercial markets.

  10. ABB Aztec 600 Manganese Analyzer Optimizing Manganese Removal Efficiency
    11/15/2017

    The task of managing the quantity and quality of potable water is unimaginable without online instrumentation to help water utilities to measure, treat and deliver drinking water to consumers. ABB’s Aztec 600 colorimetric and ion-selective electrode (ISE) analyzers have been designed to measure the key parameters that affect water quality – aluminium, iron, manganese, phosphate, color, ammonia and fluoride.
