    The decisions and ROI calculations get even more complex when plant staff and their engineering partners are constrained by or must factor in obsolescence should the plant want to consider upgrading their process systems’ communication method. 

  3. How Often Should I Measure ATP In My Wastewater Treatment Plant?
    1/22/2018

    LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP has many potential uses within a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), including: diagnosing acute and chronic toxicity, optimizing solids concentrations in the aeration tank, optimizing dissolved oxygen setpoints and identifying sludge bulking events.

  4. Predictive Diagnostics Has Arrived, But How Is It Applied To Wastewater Instrumentation?
    1/16/2018

    Technology for wastewater treatment is an ever-changing thing. But as plants continue to rely on instrumentation to assure effective operations, a new level of diagnostics has emerged.

  5. Copy Custom Tag Types To Other Applications
    1/8/2018

    Having created a custom tag type, you may want to use it in another application. By far the best way to do this is through the use of application layers, where one application is built on another, thereby inheriting all of the custom features of the first (OEM) layer.

  6. 10 Fluid Measurement Plant Imperatives That Increase Process Efficiency And Reduce Costs
    1/1/2018

    Accurately measuring the flow and level of the various liquids and gases that travel through a process industry plant is a critical function for effective and efficient plant operations. Read more to learn ten important industrial process plant functions that can benefit from accurate, repeatable and reliable electronic flow or level measurement.

  7. Flow Data Red Flags: When To Act
    12/20/2017

    Accurate flow measurement is critical to most water and wastewater processes. Red flags may pop up to indicate meter problems, but which ones should lead you to act — and when? The answer depends on the type of meter, what it is used for, and whether the readings are local or remote.

  8. Flow Conditioning Improves Flow Measurement Accuracy And Reduces Plant Cost
    12/15/2017

    If you're planning to expand, upgrade or retrofit your plant in the near future, chances are that you'll be facing a real estate crisis when it comes to finding a place for all your new or upgraded equipment. 

  9. Ozone Gas Flow Monitoring For Water Treatment Systems
    12/7/2017

    Many municipal water treatment plants utilize Ozone Treatment Systems to produce clean water for residential and industrial users. While all the various types of water treatment systems have their advantages and disadvantages, Ozone (O3) systems provide excellent disinfection and avoid some of the chemical byproduct problems experienced with the use of chlorination. 

  10. The Control They Want
    12/7/2017

    Danville, Kentucky, is known as the City of Firsts.  The City built the first courthouse in Kentucky, the first Kentucky constitution was written and signed there, they had the first U.S. post office west of the Allegheny Mountains, Ephraim McDowell completed the first known successful laparotomy there in 1809, and Danville was the first capital of Kentucky!  This profile describes the implementation of a new SCADA control system completed by VTScada Certified Advanced Integrator, Rawdon Myers, Inc.
