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.

  2. WaterGEMS® Prioritizes Manila Water Facilities For Disaster Resiliency And Contingency Plan
    2/1/2018

    Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and typhoons that cause catastrophic losses. Manila Water Company, Inc., prepared a Natural Calamity Risk Resiliency and Mitigation Masterplan to ensure that there is a reliable water supply in the event of a natural disaster for the service area covering the East Zone of Metro Manila (the National Capital Region) and Rizal Province. 

  3. Asset Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Networks
    2/1/2018

    Water and wastewater leaders are unsung heroes. Clean, safe water is essential to human life and to the well-being of the environment, yet it is grossly underfunded. Limited resources lead to deferred maintenance and difficult decisions.

  4. Innovative New Air / Gas Thermal Flow Meter Changes The Rules

    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. 

  5. 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.

  6. Predictive Diagnostics Has Arrived, But How Is It Applied To Wastewater Instrumentation?
    1/16/2018

    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.

  7. 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.”

  8. 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?

  9. 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.”

  10. 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.
