Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Crystal Clear Water Supply Corporation
    7/15/2015

    Serving an area from eastern San Marcos to northwest Seguin, Crystal Clear Water Supply Corporation (CCWSC) recently commissioned their integrator, Central Texas Water Maintenance (CTWM) to replace their Wonderware and WIN-911 systems with VTScada software from Trihedral.

  2. Natural Gas Fractionation Process Facilities Rely On Flow Switch For Relief Valve Leak Monitoring
    7/5/2017

    A company with multiple natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation process facilities located in the Southeastern U.S became concerned about a series of missed events and nuisance alarms caused by the flow switches installed to monitor potential overpressure situations with its pressure relief valves. The company wanted a highly reliable flow instrument solution that would detect a real event and avoid the lost productivity of nuisance alarms.

  3. Application Note: The Ultrameter II™ In Municipal Wastewater Treatment
    3/9/2009

    Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) are faced with the challenge of processing the effluent wastes of multiple sources: residential, industrial, and environmental. Under laws governing pretreatment, the ultimate responsibility in determining whether or not industrial effluent meets criteria for treatment belongs to the POTW. Once the POTW has the effluent waste within the confines of its treatment facility, it is accountable to the federal, state, and local regulations governing the quality of the wastewater it discharges into lakes and streams or injects underground.

  4. SCADA Alternatives For Remote Monitoring
    1/30/2014

    In addition to managing operational efficiency and customer usage, utilities are driven by demanding regulations for improved quality, safety, and security. For remote monitoring applications, data acquisition systems (DAS) can provide an enhanced understanding of network operations through detailed documentation. This white paper presents the advantages of remote DAS over SCADA, including the ability to measure data even when communication channels fail or computers crash. By Barry Ceci

  5. Company Reduces Wastewater Treatment Billing Rates
    11/23/2015

    A medical research company in the Midwest United States offers comprehensive services to help determine the safety of life-changing compounds and assist in bringing them to the marketplace as rapidly as possible. Their drug safety evaluation research services offer dedicated expertise in a wide variety of medical arenas.

  6. Neptune’s R450™ System Helps Get Feet Off The Streets Of Laredo
    8/21/2015

    The city of Laredo, Texas, had been walking to read its 67,543 water meters – 59,138 residential and 8,405 commercial accounts – using a manual method that took up to ten staff on the streets nearly an entire month to read to meet a monthly billing schedule. With the dawn of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, the City began their search for the right metering solution for the department’s needs.

  7. What’s The Best Way To Measure Water And Wastewater Flow?
    7/13/2017

    Throughout my time in the industry, the one question that always gets brought up is, “With all of the options and technologies available, what is the best way to measure water and wastewater flow?”

  8. Monsters Protect Pump Station, Weather Storms In Scotland
    7/14/2015

    Pump blockages and rags are a significant barrier to energy and operational efficiencies at pump stations, causing unscheduled shut downs, safety hazards for operators, costly equipment repairs and increased power usage due to a decrease in the pumps’ hydraulic performance. Scottish Water observed these negative effects caused by an influx of wipes and rags throughout a network of area pump stations. Engineers looked to a proven, powerful solution in the form of two JWC Environmental Channel Monster® grinders at one of their most problematic sites.

  9. Refinery Turns To Thermal Mass Flow Meter
    2/5/2016

    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.
