  1. How To Extend The Life Of Your Wastewater Pumps
    3/20/2018

    Wastewater treatment plants use numerous pumps in a variety of types and sizes to move water through the process. Depending on plant configuration, they may pump influent, activated sludge, thickened or digested sludge, biosolids, scum, filtrate, effluent, or reuse water. Each matrix has specific characteristics that engineers consider when designing pumping systems.

  2. Small Wastewater Plant Gets Big Technology Update
    2/24/2018

    When federal and state environmental agency mandates required the City of Havre, Montana to upgrade its wastewater treatment facility, utility leaders decided to implement a more efficient record keeping process at the same time. The newly upgraded wastewater treatment facility officially started up in September 2016 with the capacity to treat 1.8 million gallons of sewage per day.

  3. The Importance Of Accurate Metering In Irrigation
    2/7/2018

    In the agriculture sector today, where water usage reporting is increasingly becoming a requirement for irrigation system operators that divert water in regulated areas from ground and surface sources, accurate metering is critical.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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. 

  10. 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.
