  1. Maximizing Your ROI On Test Equipment
    5/7/2012

    In today’s economic climate, it’s tempting to want to buy the cheapest test equipment you can now. But, how can you tell what the true cost of test equipment is? You have to consider how widely your water and chemical consumption will vary as the readings on your instrumentation does. By Heather Rekalske, Myron L Company

  2. Biological Water Treatment: Only The Best Instruments Are Good Enough
    2/28/2017

    Vallviks Bruk AB, located about 200 km (125 miles) north of Stockholm, produces softwood kraft pulp and chemical pulp for export. Some years ago, increased environmental requirements led to a major investment in a biological treatment plant. Read the full case study to learn why ABB instrumentation was an obvious choice when the Swedish pulp producer Vallviks Bruk AB built a new plant for biological water treatment.

  5. Next Generation FPI Mag Flow Meter Helps Provide Clean Water For Seattle
    10/15/2014

    The Cedar Water Treatment Facility (CWTF) serves the residents of the City of Seattle. This state-of-the-art plant was designed and built, and is now operated by CH2M Hill.  Working together, CH2M Hill and McCrometer improved flow measurement at the facility with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter.

  6. The Benefits Of A Venturi Meter
    2/19/2014

    With the introduction of new measurement technologies and the myriad of performance claims from sale literature, it’s easy to lose sight of the important elements that an effective flow meter offers no matter what technology is used. Long known for their longevity, reliability, and long term performance, Venturi meters provide the widest variety of measurement options in piped systems for liquids, gas, steam, and mixed media of any metering technology – all while offering the highest degree of traceable accuracy.

  7. WIMS Offers A Winning Solution In Columbia, SC
    8/8/2016

    Back in 2012, the City Of Columbia made the decision to update its OPS SQL software to Hach WIMS (water information management system). The old software was not only sitting idle, but was also out of date. The reasons for updating and implementing the software were many but can be summarized with the two primary goals: To collect the data into a central database that is easily accessible and to create a dashboard from which the rotating operations teams or management could quickly understand what was happening. After more than a year of coordinating Metro management and staff, Hach WIMS support staff, and city IT staff, WIMS began to take shape.

  8. HydroRanger For Accurate, Open Channel Flow Measurement
