Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Bury A SITRANS MAG Sensor? Sure!
    11/25/2015

    A large east coast water supplier faced a number of challenges with one of its pumping stations. It was built more than 35 years ago on a 25’ earth mound (“ant hill”) to protect it from flooding, the pumping station was becoming very expensive and inefficient to operate.

  2. How The Industry Can Take On Wipes In The Waste Stream – And Win
    8/20/2015

    This is the first of a three-part series examining wipes in the waste stream. This first installment looks specifically at the growth of disposable wipes usage within the last decade.

  3. Meter Technology Used For Verification
    11/13/2015

    The core of Coriolis mass flowmeters are oscillating tubes. As soon as mass is flowing through them, a Coriolis force is affecting the oscillation, creating a phase shift.

  4. Ozone Demand Testing = Disinfection Project Success
    7/19/2013

    Water and wastewater facilities are increasingly looking to ozone disinfection. A strong and indiscriminant oxidant, ozone can effectively address treatment issues with THMs and DBPs in the disinfection process. Ozone disinfection is also a proactive step toward addressing future rules on endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and other trace organics at both water and wastewater plants. While there are many aspects to ozone disinfection system design, the single most important factor in project success is a thorough understanding of your facility’s ozone demand profile. This article provides an outline of the key factors to make your ozone demand test -and ozone project- a success. By Thoram Charanda and Louis LeBrun

    Myron L® Company’s 900 Series is the Reliable, Accurate, Simple and Flexible Answer.

  6. Modernize Your Mobile Operation
    4/23/2014

    The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati’s Wastewater Collection Division manages 3,000 miles of main sewer line and services some 200,000 individual customer sewer laterals and accounts that cover nearly 1 million residents and businesses. When things go wrong with those pipes, the division hears about it from customers loud and clear.

  7. South Australia’s $403 Million North South Interconnection System Project (NSISP) Uses A “Super” Valve To Perform In A Variety Of Extreme Conditions
    10/3/2014

    NSISP is one of South Australian Water Corporation’s (SA Water) biggest infrastructure projects undertaken in Adelaide metropolitan to connect the north and south drinking water distribution systems and to increase access to their desalination plant. The project included the construction of 32 km of pipeline through metropolitan main roads and suburban inner streets. This is no small feat and getting it done right meant fitting together a lot of different moving pieces.

  8. Ultrasonic vs. Radar In The Water Industry
    6/30/2017

    In recent years, the debate about which technology is best suited for level monitoring and open channel monitoring (OCM) applications has taken some traction. There are those who argue that ultrasonic level technology has been uncontested as the standard for level and OCM applications in the water industry. The counter-argument is that radar technology is more effective because it is more robust and accurate than ultrasonic technology. 

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
