Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. New Developments In Thermal Dispersion Mass Flow Meters
    9/15/2014

    This paper describes a newly developed microprocessor-based thermal dispersion mass flow meter that uses four temperature sensing elements in its flow sensor instead of the traditional two elements and automatically manages changes in gas selection, gas temperature, gas pressure, and outside temperature. By John G. Olin, Ph.D., Founder/Chairman, Sierra Instruments

  2. 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.

  3. Keeping The Operator In Focus: The Four Pillars Of Operator Effectiveness
    8/2/2018

    This paper shows how the four pillars of operator effectiveness lead operators to greater awareness, faster response and better decisions.

  4. Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter To Comply With Allocation Quota
    10/30/2014

    Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District (AVWSID) serves rural county residents who live outside the city of Vernal, Utah.

  5. 50+ Years With Neptune And Building On A Decade of R900 Technology
    3/4/2015

    The Public Works Utilities of Billings, Montana, began their partnership with Neptune Technology back in the 1950s and was an early adopter of Neptune’s ARB® absolute encoder meter reading technology in the 1960s.

  6. BPM Of Things: Secure Your Success In Digital Transformation
    8/31/2017

    Business process management (BPM) has proven extremely successful in managing both gradual and radical improvements in the industry and various business functions. While digitization brings incredible new opportunities, it also brings the distinctive challenge of correctly positioning and scoping BPM in organizations.

  7. Centralized Backup & Configuration For Remote Plant HMIs
    7/5/2007

    As Wastewater Manager for four sewage treatment plants spread across Colchester County, Nova Scotia, Nicole MacDonald faced the daunting task of ensuring all systems continued to function seamlessly on a 24/7 basis. Each plant had its own separate monitoring and control system that allowed it to function autonomously

  8. The Eaton M-Max VFD Provides QuantumFlo With A Cost-Effective, Energy Efficient Solution
    4/26/2017

    Achieving consistent water pressure is a challenge for geographical areas that have grown faster than the development of infrastructures to accommodate water demand and for businesses such as fast food restaurants and strip malls.

  9. Remote Monitoring Saves Money, Time For Rural Municipality
    1/23/2014

    With outdated flow-monitoring systems, the Newtown Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority (NBCJMA) faced time-consuming communication gaps between the various sites of its large, decentralized sewer system. After bringing in engineering consulting firm Gannett Fleming, they installed remote telemetry units (RTUs) with solar power, eliminating the need for AC power or field visits to change batteries. Today, technicians can review data in a few minutes instead of a few hours thanks to frequent, regular delivery of data.

  10. A Visual Guide To Troubleshooting Your Valves
    1/9/2017

    Water management professionals know all too well that problems arise — usually sometime after 2 a.m., or just as you’re walking out the door for a holiday weekend. No matter how well-prepared you are, or how sophisticated your system, sometimes you’re going to run into challenges. It’s simply the nature of the industry. When you experience an issue with your valves (especially when they’re failing to open or close as expected) your first instinct is to call the factory for support. While some cases may require factory assistance, this isn’t always the most efficient solution.
