    Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are common place at municipal utilities and manufacturing facilities. By Kevin Connolly and Christopher Little

  3. Case Study: Metering Accuracy is Critical To The Success Of Toronto’s Innovative Deep Lake Water Cooling
    6/7/2007
    The city of Toronto has capitalized on a valuable asset lying 272 feet below the surface of Lake Ontario – icy cold water that remains at a constant 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit all year round. Since August 2004, this previously-untapped resource has been supplying economical and environmentally-friendly air conditioning to large buildings in the city’s downtown
  4. Using Virtual Reference Grounding For Electromagnetic Flowmeters
    7/12/2012

    Electromagnetic flowmeters (EMFs) are the leading choice for recording the volume flow of electrically conductive liquids in a wide range of industries, including chemical, pharmaceutical, water/wastewater and food. By Ralf Haut, KROHNE, Inc.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. The Best Of Both SCADA Worlds
    9/7/2011
    By 2003, the City of Ocala had converted their two monitoring & control systems to VTScada software from Trihedral. In 2005, they merged the two into a single application.
  8. Eaton Expands Online Training With New Online Commissioner Classes
    11/6/2017

    To help customers use variable frequency drives (VFDs) to enhance safety and reliability, Eaton is offering eLearning courses for VFD technology to support product, installation and commissioning and service knowledge. The robust online training program helps electrical distributors, contractors and industrial customers optimize the performance of VFDs.

  9. RTC‐ST Reduces Polymer And Increases Biogas Production
    9/14/2015

    Hach’s off‐the‐shelf Real-Time Control System for Sludge Thickening (RTC‐ST) adjusts the sludge thickening process in real time. Thanks to the RTC-ST, a wastewater treatment plant improved thickened sludge consistency and gas production while reducing money spent on excessive polymer dosing and maintenance.
