Wastewater Measurement

  1. The Importance Of Accurate Metering In Irrigation
    2/7/2018

    In the agriculture sector today, where water usage reporting is increasingly becoming a requirement for irrigation system operators that divert water in regulated areas from ground and surface sources, accurate metering is critical.

    The decisions and ROI calculations get even more complex when plant staff and their engineering partners are constrained by or must factor in obsolescence should the plant want to consider upgrading their process systems’ communication method. 

  3. How Often Should I Measure ATP In My Wastewater Treatment Plant?
    1/22/2018

    LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP has many potential uses within a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), including: diagnosing acute and chronic toxicity, optimizing solids concentrations in the aeration tank, optimizing dissolved oxygen setpoints and identifying sludge bulking events.

  4. Predictive Diagnostics Has Arrived, But How Is It Applied To Wastewater Instrumentation?

    Technology for wastewater treatment is an ever-changing thing. But as plants continue to rely on instrumentation to assure effective operations, a new level of diagnostics has emerged.

  5. Advanced Strategies To Extend The Life Of Your Water Network
    1/16/2018

    Water utilities face many challenges including aging infrastructure, constrained resources and revenue shortfalls. Most utilities use various technological resources to manage their assets and increase efficiency. Resources may include Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), hydraulic models, asset management systems, network sensors, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and billing databases. Unfortunately, those resources are often managed in “silos.”

  6. Scalable SCADA: Deploying Ignition In Any Architecture
    1/9/2018

    The Internet continues to transform the way business is done, industries are in transition, new markets are opening, and consumer habits are shifting. Even if your architecture is working well now, is it scalable enough to adapt to unpredictable changes?

  7. Smarter SCADA Alarming
    1/9/2018

    One afternoon at a waste water treatment facility, an alarm goes off when the water pressure gets too high in one of the tanks. The alarm is set at priority level 4, which means “critical,” but it doesn’t stand out because almost every other alarm at the facility is set at that level. Besides, the operator can’t acknowledge it right away because he’s dealing with several other alarms that went off a few minutes earlier – which he doesn’t yet realize are just “nuisance alarms.”

  8. Making Your Old SCADA System New Again

    When it comes time to update, it's a prime opportunity to consider switching over to new software that offers improved functionality instead of dumping more money into just keeping your existing software up-to-date.

  9. Four Ways Ignition SCADA Speeds Development
    1/9/2018

    Have you ever been trapped in “development hell”? If you’ve been involved in developing software applications, you can probably relate to the feeling. Modern technologies offer many promising possibilities for your enterprise, but the actual process of development can feel endless and painful, especially for control engineers or other professionals who may not have extensive training in software development. In this white paper, learn about the development platform.

  10. Copy Custom Tag Types To Other Applications
    1/8/2018

    Having created a custom tag type, you may want to use it in another application. By far the best way to do this is through the use of application layers, where one application is built on another, thereby inheriting all of the custom features of the first (OEM) layer.
