  1. Is There A Correlation Between ATP And Other Traditional Microbiological Methods?
    12/7/2017

    Perhaps the most common question that we’re asked is how our ATP tests correlate with traditional microbiological methods.  Unsurprisingly, when people are used to getting their information in a certain way, they naturally want to know how a new method will stack up against it.  However, the mechanisms of culture-based techniques and ATP analyses are completely different, and in many ways, so are the results they produce. 

  2. Starch Mill Anaerobic & Aerobic WWTP Monitoring Program
    12/7/2017

    Over the course of a 1.5-month field experiment at a Canadian starch mill biological wastewater treatment process, LuminUltra Technologies demonstrated the benefits of using 2nd Generation ATP® monitoring technology. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) monitoring technology is an accurate biomass measurement that can rapidly monitor all types of biological wastewater treatment processes, aerobic and anaerobic alike.

  3. 3 Dirty Little Secrets About Coriolis Flowmeters
    11/16/2017

    Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.

  4. From The 1970s To Today – 4 Key Advances In Coriolis Flow Measurement
    11/8/2017

    Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.

    To help customers use variable frequency drives (VFDs) to enhance safety and reliability, Eaton is offering eLearning courses for VFD technology to support product, installation and commissioning and service knowledge. The robust online training program helps electrical distributors, contractors and industrial customers optimize the performance of VFDs.

  7. What Happens When Your SCADA Server Buys The Farm?
    11/2/2017

    Scenario 1: It is 3 am and you are fast asleep at home in your bed. At your office across town, the server that monitors and controls your critical water and wastewater infrastructure goes offline. Maybe, the hard drive failed or the power supply died. Perhaps it just lost connection to the network. Regardless, all polling, logging, monitoring and alarming have ceased. What happens next?

  8. Using ATP In Suspended Growth Wastewater Treatment Systems – What Is The Benefit?
    10/25/2017

    Suspended growth systems, such as activated sludge, are a very common form of secondary wastewater treatment. The potential to optimize and improve the operation of such treatment plants using ATP is tremendous. ATP can directly quantify active biomass, which is key to providing secondary treatment. Two of the many potential uses for ATP in a wastewater treatment plant are aeration and solids optimization and toxicity monitoring and identification.

  9. Bulk Emergency Chlorine Vapor Scrubber System Restored For Oklahoma City
    9/19/2017

    As a bulk emergency chlorine vapor scrubber system approached the end of its anticipated 20-year useful life, the city engaged Integrity Municipal Systems, LLC (IMS) inspected the equipment and proposed a system refurbishment plan that would ensure proper system performance and safe storage of the 30,000 gallons of corrosive caustic soda contained within it.

  10. Is Remote Monitoring Right for Me?
    9/14/2017

    Budgetary constraints and the challenges of maintaining and upgrading aging infrastructure have water utilities looking for ways to operate more efficiently, even as customer service expectations and regulatory demand for more sophisticated reporting and usage information are on the rise. Fortunately, many water treatment plants have found a solution to these seemingly contradictory requirements in remote monitoring systems, which allow utilities to conserve water, operate efficiently, and ensure that the assets within their network are performing well.
