Wastewater Measurement

  1. How To Apply And Maintain A Photometric/Colorimetric Analyzer
    5/21/2018

    Water resource recovery (WRR) plants must monitor ammonium and orthophosphate. Permitted levels for these nutrients in effluent discharge are becoming increasingly tight because state environmental agencies and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are requiring dischargers to reduce the amount of nutrients in their effluent.

  2. Smarter Spending: Using Data Analysis To Drive Infrastructure Investment Decisions
    5/8/2018

    Data analysis around pipe condition, inflow & infiltration (I&I), and overflows can build a case for the approval of infrastructure funding in budget planning.

  3. WaterCAD’s Modeling Capabilities Produce Accurate Hydraulic Model In 70 Percent Less Time
    5/7/2018

    Varkom D.D. (Varkom) brings water and wastewater utility services to 175,000 people across seven townships and 20 municipalities in Croatia. The organization wanted a feasibility study completed to help better manage its assets. Read the full case study to learn how the team estimated that 70 percent of time was saved directly in model preparation and an additional 70 percent of time was saved in model management and preliminary design.

  4. Beyond The Buzzword: How Utility Operators Can Use Big Data For Better Asset Management, Operations, And Customer Engagement
    5/7/2018

    Big Data is more than a marketing buzzword. It’s become be an essential tool for helping utility operators prioritize capital investments, manage network assets, and provide a higher level of service to customers.

  5. Emergencies: Preventing, Preparing, And Responding
    4/23/2018

    Population health is a primary concern of water utilities, whether water demands are typical (daily demands) or an out-of-the ordinary event occurs and threatens the continuous, safe supply of potable water. Water utilities must be prepared to respond to emergencies before they occur, and this is where hydraulic modeling can be particularly useful.

  6. Digital Engineering Models Enable Comprehensive Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants
    4/17/2018

    Water and wastewater treatment plant design is a large scale, complex engineering effort that requires a multi-discipline design team, often spread across many offices, and involving collaboration among different consulting firms, contractors, and owners.

  7. Revolutionizing Asset Management In The Water/Wastewater Industry
    4/17/2018

    The industrial world is awash with data and new information from sensors, applications, equipment, and people.

  8. Advancing Management Of Urban Water Infrastructure
    4/13/2018

    A wide range of issues can disrupt the normal functioning of an urban water system, such as storms and other natural disasters, pollution, physical damage, cyber incidents, aging and insufficient infrastructure, and rapid urban growth.

  9. FMCW Or ToF? Which Radar Level Technology Is Best For Tank Gauging In Custody Transfer Applications?
    4/9/2018

    Measuring the level of tanks used to hold fluids for custody transfer can be expensive. This is not due to the cost of the measurement instrumentation, but to what inaccurate measurements can cost the company. Picking the right instrumentation for applications is important. Which radar level technology should you choose for tank gauging in custody transfer applications? Frequency Modulated Continuous Waveform (FMCW) or pulsed Time-of-Flight (ToF or PToF).

  10. Are You Experiencing Deviation Alarms In Your High Pressure Process Vessels?
    4/9/2018

    In this white paper, learn how to decrease alarms due to redundant level devices not matching, especially in applications with high pressure and/or high temperature. The importance of Gas Phase Compensation (GPC) and how it affects level readings of guided wave radar (GWR) devices is critical. The presence of polar gas also can have an effect on the accuracy of any GWR that does not have GPC when installed in applications where high temperature or pressure is present. This paper will discuss these issues and address how to overcome them.
