Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Advanced Diagnostics of Thermal Mass Flow Meters
    9/9/2014

    Many thermal mass flow meters are of the insertion type. As a starting point, proper insertion depth and straight run per the manufacturer’s recommendations should be adhered to.

  2. Ultrasonic Flow Measurement System Saves WWTP $72,500 Annually
    10/3/2014

    If the wastewater treatment plant serving Reading, PA, and 11 surrounding municipalities has a mission statement for its day-to-day operations, it couldn’t be simpler or more critical: “95°F.”

  3. Small Wastewater Plant Gets Big Technology Update
    2/24/2018

    When federal and state environmental agency mandates required the City of Havre, Montana to upgrade its wastewater treatment facility, utility leaders decided to implement a more efficient record keeping process at the same time. Havre is located in the north central portion of the state and is home to about 10,000 residents. The newly upgraded wastewater treatment facility officially started up in September 2016 with the capacity to treat 1.8 million gallons of sewage per day. Since the upgrade, the facility is now able to address ammonia reduction and comply with total nitrogen/phosphorus limits. Since day one, all of the Havre Wastewater Treatment Facility’s operational data has been tracked in OpWorks, a web-based application.

  4. A Golden Spike In Revenue, Efficiency, And Customer Service With The R900® System
    8/20/2015

    In 2008, the public utility manager in Ogden City, Utah sent out a request for proposal on a system-wide changeout of its meters, absolute encoders, and radio frequency meter interface units (RF MIUs), with a goal of eliminating estimating and replacing all their meters with AMR technology to read year-round. Read the full case study to learn more.

  5. Biogas Industry Trends And Flow Measurement Technology
    6/3/2015

    Many US wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are beginning to use anaerobic digesters to produce biogas that can be used in their combined heat and power plants to generate electricity and heat.

  6. Digester Biogas Flow Measurement
    12/20/2017

    The engineers at a municipal wastewater treatment utility were expanding their biogas digester system and were seeking an improvement over their existing, maintenance-intensive flow metering technology. They needed to measure the amount of gas contained within a gas bag as well as the flow rate of the gases traveling from the gas bag system into a co-generation power system. 

  7. The Most Misunderstood Fact Behind Dissolved Oxygen Sensors (It’s The Pressure, Not The Concentration)
    8/5/2015

    A dissolved oxygen sensor ought to be simple to understand. Whether it is membrane or optically based, it gives a signal that is proportional to the concentration of oxygen concentration in water.

  8. Revolutionizing Asset Management In The Water/Wastewater Industry
    4/17/2018

    The industrial world is awash with data and new information from sensors, applications, equipment, and people.

  9. Low-Cost Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling For Pump Stations
    11/22/2013

    Avoid pump station failures, protect the environment, and save money through computer simulation.

  10. An Energy System For Power Generation Relies On Quality Monitoring Instruments From Siemens
    11/23/2015

    A U.S. company develops energy technologies that are environmentally sustainable and provides their customers with the ability to use their energy sources in a more practical and cost-effective manner.
