    Flow measurement instrumentation options abound, and the challenge of picking the right one for a particular application can be daunting.

  5. 4 Trends For Water Infrastructure Longevity And Conservation In 2016
    10/22/2015

    Looking back on 2015, severe droughts, flat budgets, and insights on decreased reading system life have affected the way utility managers make decisions about water metering systems. As utilities plan for 2016, managers should consider four key water metering technology trends predicted to help utilities meet their water management initiatives in 2016 and beyond

  6. How The Industry Can Take On Wipes In The Waste Stream – And Win: Part 3
    9/23/2015

    As outlined in earlier articles, increasing public awareness or even seeking legal action are potential tools to help municipalities gain control of the wipes problem. However, many agencies have seen that these strategies are not completely effective in the long term, and they must also employ new technologies to permanently deal with the wipes epidemic.

    This is the second installment of a three-part series examining wipes in the waste stream. The first installment looked specifically at the growth of disposable wipes usage within the last decade. Now we’ll look at the public outreach campaigns and some of the ways pump manufacturers are adjusting their technology to try to reduce or prevent wipes-related clogging.   

  8. Oil, Gas And Water In Real Time
    8/24/2015

    Recently launched by ABB, the VIS (VEGA Isokinetic Sampling) Multi-Phase Flow Meter is the ideal solution for measuring and monitoring flow rates of oil, gas and water close to the wellhead. VIS enables simultaneous measurement of the three different phases with extreme accuracy.

    This is the first of a three-part series examining wipes in the waste stream. This first installment looks specifically at the growth of disposable wipes usage within the last decade.

  10. Optimizing Gas Storage Fields Operation Through High Accuracy Multiphase Flow Metering
    8/6/2015

    Natural gas consumption is far from being constant over the months. Typically Natural Gas (NG) is stored in summer periods, when there is lower demand for it, and is withdrawn in the winter periods, when significant amounts of NG are used for heating.
