Wastewater Flow Control Measurement Application Notes

  1. Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency
    12/15/2017

    One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.

  2. Lab Gas Sub-Metering Accuracy Improves With Thermal Flow Meters To Save Money

    Facility administrators will find the advanced ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) helps them improve the accuracy of specialty gas point of use and sub-metering operations to achieve accurate billing in their labs for better cost tracking and control.

  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. Thermal Flow Meters For Mixed Gas Applications

    Fox Thermal Flow Meters use a constant temperature differential (constant Δ T) technology to measure mass flow rate of air and gases.

  5. New Ultrasonic Flow Meters Improve Biogas Measurements

    As interest in biogas grows, more attention is being paid to measuring biogas flow, which has long been a problem area in process measuring technology.

  6. Optimize Your Water Discharge Quality Through Accurate Turbidity And Suspended Solids Measurement

    The clarity of water in a stream, river or ocean is a key determinant in fostering a healthy and balanced aquatic ecosystem. The clearer the water, the greater the ability of light to penetrate to aquatic plants which generate the oxygen needed for aquatic life.
