Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. HydroRanger For Accurate, Open Channel Flow Measurement
    11/23/2015

    A municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in the Western United States had to monitor how much wastewater was coming in to the plant and how much effluent was flowing out to the river after it had been cleaned and treated.

  2. WirelessHART® Networks: 7 Myths That Cloud Their Consideration For Process Control Measurement Made Easy
    1/20/2017

    Misinformation about WirelessHART networks prevails among many instrument engineers in the process industries. This article attempts to set the record straight by debunking seven myths about these networks.

  3. Shanghai Investigation Sets BIM Standard On Ningbo Yongxin’s Urban Flood Control Project
    11/1/2016

    In response to the devastation from a 2013 typhoon that caused the Yongxin and Yongjiang rivers in Ningbo, China to overflow, Ningbo Raw Water Group Ltd. commissioned the detailed design and construction of a CNY 178 million emergency sluice pump. The pump would provide flood control measures and mitigate future flood losses to improve urban infrastructure services within the Zhejiang province. To avoid the risk of additional flooding from another typhoon, the Raw Water Group required the urban flood control project to be delivered in a demanding eight-month schedule—a process that would ordinarily take 24 months to complete.

  4. Instrument Resiliency For Tough Times
    7/17/2018

    Utilities have relied on numerous instruments for process control and monitoring for many years. But in today’s world, instrumentation is more crucial than ever. Most treatment facilities, pump stations, and other system components are automated to some extent. Instrument failure or inaccuracy may result in serious public health or environmental consequences. Resilient instruments can power through adversity and keep utilities running smoothly.

  5. Cyanide Analysis Of Wastewater Samples From FCC And Hydrocracking Operations
    6/21/2013

    Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is a major unit operation in refineries around the world. FCC is used to convert lowvalue, high molecular weight feedstocks such as shale oil, tar sands oil, and coker gas oils into lighter, high-value products by “cracking” C-C bonds.

  6. How The Industry Can Take On Wipes In The Waste Stream – And Win: Part 2
    9/9/2015

    This is the second installment of a three-part series examining wipes in the waste stream. The first installment looked specifically at the growth of disposable wipes usage within the last decade. Now we’ll look at the public outreach campaigns and some of the ways pump manufacturers are adjusting their technology to try to reduce or prevent wipes-related clogging.   

  7. Calculated pH By Differential Conductivity Measurement In Mixtures Of Alkalizing Agents
    10/21/2014

    Proper measurement of pH is a key factor of corrosion risk surveillance in water-steam cycles.
