  1. ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?
    12/12/2016

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.

    Wastewater treatment plants don’t just have to deal with household and industrial wastewater. Rainwater also enters the cleaning process via the sewer system.

  3. ATP And DNA – Who’s On First?
    10/25/2016

    As some of you may have heard, LuminUltra has partnered with Microbe Detectives to offer DNA testing services to the drinking water and wastewater industries. So “Who’s on First?” (pun intended); simply put, the partnership’s combined technologies tell you who is in a given water or wastewater sample, and how much is in that sample.

  8. Reducing Costs of Steam Flow Measurement
    9/9/2016

    Traditionally, steam flow has been measured with a differential pressure device. This is typically an orifice plate. However, such devices are inherently volumetric flow measurements. As we have discussed in previous blog posts, changes in pressure and temperature will change the mass flow rate of steam.
