Wastewater Management

  1. Siemens Announces A Solution For Magmeter Installations With Piping Constraints

    Siemens Process Industries & Drives Division is pleased to announce independent certification of performance for its Magmeter products in less than ideal mounting conditions.

  2. Collection System Aeration And The Microbial Benefits

    In late 2015 Reliant Water Technologies introduced the Wet Well Wizard, an aeration tool for the wet wells in collection systems.  During 14 months of field testing the patent pending Wizard System, the primary objectives were to eliminate FOG (fat, oil and grease) caps and to reduce H2S, eliminating it if possible. 

  3. Hard Iron Versus Cast Iron Impellers For Non-Clog Sewage Pumps

    When specifying the impeller material for a non-clog sewage pump, how do you know whether to select cast iron or hard iron material?

  4. What Are Sonic Intelligence And Process Intelligence And Their Benefits?

    In level measurement and specifically non-contacting level measurement, ultrasonic and radar technologies are popular across many industries.  They both rely on the time of flight principle to determine the distance to the target or material from which the level can be determined. 

  5. Reliable Flow Monitoring Of Primary And Secondary Sewage Treatment

    Primary and secondary sewage treatment are designed to improve the quality of wastewater. These processes reduce bacteria, suspended solids, biodegradable organics, and other materials to improve effluent quality.

  6. Liquid Level/Interface Monitoring In Flocculant/Sludge Control

    Precisely measuring and controlling the mixture of wastewater effluent, flocculants, and sludge is essential to efficient water treatment. The level/interface instruments that support the process liquid measurements must be capable of distinguishing between liquids with varying properties in order to detect the levels where the different liquids interface in the pond or tank.

  7. Refinery Turns To Thermal Mass Flow Meter

    An independent Midwest refiner operates refineries in multiple states with a combined crude oil processing capacity of more than 500,000 barrels per day. The company recently approved a project to improve the safety of its plant and reduce its costs for nitrogen gas used for tank blanketing. Read the full report to learn more.

  8. What’s Next For Mobile SCADA?

    A Telemetry Expert Describes How and Why Temporary Mobile I/O Will Transform Remote Asset Management

  9. Measuring Methane-Based Digester Gas Flow In Wastewater Treatment Plants

    While traditionally flared by wastewater treatment plants, many facilities are now turning the methane produced by their digester processes into a fuel source. The harvested digester gas is used to generate on-site heat and, with cogeneration technologies, to generate electricity.

  10. Accurately Measuring LNG Tanker Boil-Off Gas For Process Efficiency And Environmental Compliance

    With the recent growth in demand and production of liquefied natural gas (LNG), there has been an increase in trade and the need to transport it globally via LNG tanker ships.
