  2. Applying Oxidation Reduction Potential Sensors In Biological Nutrient Removal Systems
    2/3/2012
    Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is commonly a misunderstood science. Applying ORP to wastewater treatment is often a considered a mystery and sometimes called “black magic”. By Bob Dabkowski Hach Wastewater Specialist
  3. 2 Applications That Triggered The Rise Of Coriolis Flow Measurement
    11/1/2017

    Coriolis measurement has been adopted as a default technology in many application scenarios due to its high accuracy and immunity to process variables (temperature, pressure and flow profile). However, Coriolis wasn't always widely accepted. Two applications, in particular, helped what was once a nascent flow measurement technology gain a foothold in the marketplace.

  4. Degassing Boiler Feed Water in China with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors
    7/6/2017

    ShenLan Environment Inc. located in Shanghai, China uses 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors in their boiler feed water treatment systems. These systems realize lower operating costs with the added benefit of reducing the chemicals added to the boiler feed water.

  5. Process Monitoring And Control For Increased Productivity And Efficiency
    4/9/2012

    The Littleton/Englewood wastewater treatment plant, Colorado, put in place processes to effectively monitor the levels of ammonia in their wastewater treatment.

  6. Application Note: Building A Baseline In Florida
    5/25/2006
    The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) knows that establishing dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrient criteria for the state’s water bodies is a challenge – both scientifically and politically
  7. Monitoring Nitrates In Drinking Water And Wastewater

    Nitrate is present in high levels in wastewater due in part to the high nitrates present in human sewage but also from some types of industrial effluent entering the municipal sewer system.

  8. Primary Wastewater Treatment: Influent Monitoring
    11/10/2013

    The raw sewage entering a wastewater treatment plant comes from a variety of sources. In addition to effluent from domestic users, effluent from industrial users and storm water run off can be present.

  9. Analysis Of Pesticide Residue In Spinach Using The AutoMate-Q40 An Automated QuEChERS Solution
    10/16/2014

    QuEChERS is a Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe extraction method that has been developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities.

  10. How One Wastewater Treatment Plant Saved Time And Money Measuring Turbidity And TSS
    1/31/2012
    The wastewater treatment plant of a major corporation is designed for a population capacity of 6 million people and is considered a very large wastewater treatment plant.
