Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. 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. 

  2. Mass Flow Meter Best Practices For Water Treatment
    12/6/2017

    Air/gas mass flow meters find a variety of applications in many of today’s large urban water treatment plants, both clean water and wastewater. From measuring disinfection gases to controlling air or gas flow in digesters and aeration systems, the proper application, installation and operation of mass flow meters improves process efficiency as well as end product quality while at the same time reducing plant operating costs

  3. 12 Monitoring Applications That Will Keep A Finger On The Pulse Of Your Water Distribution System
    7/16/2014

     “You can’t manage what you don’t monitor”, an adage first attributed to Lord Kelvin applies to practically everything, including water distribution systems.

  4. Replacement Vacuum Feeders For Hypo And Bisulfite Boost Disinfection Reliability For WWTP
    9/10/2015

    The replacement feeders also cut bisulfite consumption by 30 percent and ended the troublesome maintenance burden for instrumentation tech and plant operators.

  5. Tips For Training Today’s Operator — And Making It Stick
    2/24/2014

    Introducing three training trends that improve operators’ understanding and plant performance

  6. How Larger Flow Meters Speak Volumes
    11/13/2013

    As the price of water continues to increase, errors in flow measurement are magnified for distribution networks that transport large volumes of water. These systems often incorporate meters over 48 inches in diameter, which can be a challenge to calibrate. Learn how choosing the proper calibration method can ensure the most accurate measurements.

  7. 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.

  8. Two Processes, One Flow Metering Technology: The Benefits Of Standardization
    3/21/2018

    Wastewater treatment facilities use multiple processes and a variety of equipment to produce water clean enough for reuse. Each process within the treatment train may serve a different function yet use the same or similar equipment. In such cases, standardizing equipment may be beneficial.

  9. Neptune’s R450™ System Helps Get Feet Off The Streets Of Laredo
    8/21/2015

    The city of Laredo, Texas, had been walking to read its 67,543 water meters – 59,138 residential and 8,405 commercial accounts – using a manual method that took up to ten staff on the streets nearly an entire month to read to meet a monthly billing schedule. With the dawn of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, the City began their search for the right metering solution for the department’s needs.

  10. Weighing And Remote Monitoring For Reliable Wastewater Treatment
    1/15/2016

    Wastewater treatment can be a dirty job — but someone has to do it. At a Canadian wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) serving around 75,000 citizens, between 240 and 300 cubic meters of digested sludge are treated each and every day!
