Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. SCADA Alternatives For Remote Monitoring

    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

  2. Is There A Correlation Between ATP And Other Traditional Microbiological Methods?

    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. 

  3. Look For Advanced Performance And Safety Benefits When Choosing An Ultrasonic Level Switch

    Contact ultrasonic level switch technology was first applied to process control in the 1960s – and continues to provide accurate and reliable liquid level measurement in virtually every process industry today.

  4. On The Rise: Quality Of Water, Quality Of Life — From Northeast U.S. To Central Africa

    Bbanda is a small rural village of about 1,100 people in southern central Uganda, located 45 minutes from the closest town of Mityana. There is no electricity or reliable source of drinking water. But thanks to the work of some engineering students, that’s about to change.

  5. Cooling Process Control Panels Effectively

    Over the past few decades, the use of sophisticated high density electronics within automation and process control panels has become commonplace. Thermal management and its related costs for these electronic enclosures are very important considerations in managing these valuable assets. Choosing the appropriate and most cost and energy efficient cooling solution from the many types available requires knowledge of their individual strengths and weaknesses, and the ability to match that to the operational environment.

  6. Rumors, Half-Truths, And Truths About Temperature And pH

    A few months ago I received a call from an angry user who was using one of our differential probes and a controller. Embedded in the probe is a thermistor that measures temperature.

  7. Water Treatments Mass Exodus To Improved Chemical Dosing

    When first moved from water reservoirs, water contains materials that need to be treated and or removed. All microorganisms, flora and fauna waste, assorted dirt and insects all need to be dealt with before, water is fit for human consumption.  It is understood that, water needs to make many detours in its path from raw supplies to the tap.   All these detours start at the treatment plant.  At the plant water goes though applications that remove contaminants such as suspended solids, bacteria, algae, fungi, and minerals such as iron and manganese. The final objective is to turn contaminated debris choked water into safe, drinking water.

  8. Water Plant Upgrades: 4 Reasons To Break The Re-Order Habit

    A large percentage of the flow meters purchased for municipal water plants are replacements for older meters in existing facilities or distribution systems. It’s a common practice to replace aging meters with the same technology, often from the same manufacturer.

  9. AMA Improves Accuracy And Customer Service For Texas City

    After deployment of an AMI system that didn’t work properly, initially forcing them to manually read meters, Highland Village was in need of a new vendor and product they could count on. Enter Badger Meter and the BEACON® AMA managed solution, with ORION® Cellular endpoints.

  10. The Many Faces Of SCADA

    For over a decade, utilities have turned to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems to monitor and control their remote infrastructure. By Christopher Little
