Wastewater Measurement White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Automation Solutions For Fixed-Bed Filters
    2/5/2015

    Handwheel or automated process valve? The worldwide trend is clearly moving towards automation, because it reduces energy and water consumption, especially rinsing water, and increases plant availability. Pneumatic automation of a fixed-bed filter is a good example of this.

  2. Sizing Pages For Differing Screens
    11/27/2017

    A commonly encountered challenge is to develop pages that can be used on many screens where those screens may vary greatly in size, aspect ratio and resolution.

  3. 18 Hours To New SCADA
    4/4/2012

    Houghton Lake Sewer Authority staff were concerned that the aging computer running their SCADA software application was in danger of failing.  However, their budget constraint was cost-driven and required that any new, fully featured system be up and running in under a week.

  4. 10 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Cone Meters (But Really Should Find Out)
    8/25/2014

    Cone meters have been around for decades, since the mid-1980s. They are frequently confused with other technologies for a number of reasons. By Nick Voss, V-Cone® Product Manager, McCrometer, Inc.

  5. Bringing Efficiency And Confidence To Wastewater Analysis
    8/19/2013

    Maintaining the quality of wastewater (WW) effluent is more important than ever before, as municipalities deal with aging treatment systems, budget restrictions, and evolving compliance standards. As a result, water professionals need accurate and efficient tools to check water safety in the lab and in the field to determine levels of chemicals such as sodium, chloride, calcium, fluoride and ammonia, as well as pH, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen. By Dr. George Jarvis, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Water Analysis Instruments

  6. Measuring Methane-Based Digester Gas Flow In Wastewater Treatment Plants
    2/4/2016

    While traditionally flared by wastewater treatment plants, many facilities are now turning the methane produced by their digester processes into a fuel source. The harvested digester gas is used to generate on-site heat and, with cogeneration technologies, to generate electricity.

  7. Measure And Control Cyanide With The CNSolution 9310
    3/2/2015

    The CNSolution 9310 analyzer is used in precious metal processing to measure and control cyanide used in the hydrometallurgical leaching of gold and silver from the ore.

  8. Industrial Internet Of Things (IoT): Identifying The Vulnerabilities Of Field Devices
    7/12/2016

    The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) industry is growing at a rapid pace. By year-end 2015, an estimated 13.4 billion IoT-connected devices had flooded the global market.

  9. Is Manual Calibration The Right Choice For You?
    4/12/2017

    When selecting a new analyzer for your plant, there are many different features to consider. One of those is the choice of how the instrument will be calibrated, namely between an inexpensive manual calibration and a more complex automatic calibration method. (To be clear, we will define automatic calibration as a feature that involves no operator intervention at the instrument.) Factors that influence this choice are financial, process, staff levels, and personal preference. Let’s explore each of those.

  10. Data Monetization: Water And Wastewater Utilities In The Information Age
    5/4/2016

    In this article, we will take a closer look at how water and wastewater utilities can monetize data and improve profitability by generating top-line growth and reducing costs.
