Wastewater Measurement

  1. Digester Biogas Flow Measurement
    12/20/2017

    The engineers at a municipal wastewater treatment utility were expanding their biogas digester system and were seeking an improvement over their existing, maintenance-intensive flow metering technology. They needed to measure the amount of gas contained within a gas bag as well as the flow rate of the gases traveling from the gas bag system into a co-generation power system. 

  2. United Utilities Adopts Collaborative BIM Strategy To Deliver Over 200 Water Projects
    12/19/2017

    Privatization of the United Kingdom’s (UK) water industry 25 years ago required providers to implement asset management programs (AMP) whereby water boards tendered contracts to construction firms to update the industry’s antiquated assets and help keep infrastructure properly maintained. 

  3. Wastewater Plant Relies On Thermal Flow Meter For Co-Gen Power Gas Blending Process
    12/18/2017

    The Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority (RVSA), which operates a large wastewater treatment plant in New Jersey, embarked on a green co-generation waste-to-energy project to power a portion of its operations. The plant’s management team became interested in pursuing the gas-to-energy power co-generation system for both environmental and cost reasons.

  4. POWERCHINA Zhongnan Standardizes 3D Collaborative Design Of Water Projects
    12/15/2017

    China’s 12th Five-Year Plan (FYP) (2011-2015) allotted 20 percent more funds for municipal wastewater treatment projects to address the pervasive pollution caused by rapid urbanization and inadequate sewage disposal.

  5. Flow Conditioning Improves Flow Measurement Accuracy And Reduces Plant Cost
    12/15/2017

    If you're planning to expand, upgrade or retrofit your plant in the near future, chances are that you'll be facing a real estate crisis when it comes to finding a place for all your new or upgraded equipment. 

  6. Ozone Gas Flow Monitoring For Water Treatment Systems
    12/7/2017

    Many municipal water treatment plants utilize Ozone Treatment Systems to produce clean water for residential and industrial users. While all the various types of water treatment systems have their advantages and disadvantages, Ozone (O3) systems provide excellent disinfection and avoid some of the chemical byproduct problems experienced with the use of chlorination. 

  7. The Control They Want

    Danville, Kentucky, is known as the City of Firsts.  The City built the first courthouse in Kentucky, the first Kentucky constitution was written and signed there, they had the first U.S. post office west of the Allegheny Mountains, Ephraim McDowell completed the first known successful laparotomy there in 1809, and Danville was the first capital of Kentucky!  This profile describes the implementation of a new SCADA control system completed by VTScada Certified Advanced Integrator, Rawdon Myers, Inc.

  8. Improving Wastewater Treatment With Air Flow Instrumentation
    12/7/2017

    In wastewater treatment plants, a variety of processes are employed to eliminate organic pollutants from water to ensure its safety and release for future uses. One of the most common processes is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins.

  9. Is There A Correlation Between ATP And Other Traditional Microbiological Methods?
    12/7/2017

    Perhaps the most common question that we’re asked is how our ATP tests correlate with traditional microbiological methods.  Unsurprisingly, when people are used to getting their information in a certain way, they naturally want to know how a new method will stack up against it.  However, the mechanisms of culture-based techniques and ATP analyses are completely different, and in many ways, so are the results they produce. 

  10. Starch Mill Anaerobic & Aerobic WWTP Monitoring Program
    12/7/2017

    Over the course of a 1.5-month field experiment at a Canadian starch mill biological wastewater treatment process, LuminUltra Technologies demonstrated the benefits of using 2nd Generation ATP® monitoring technology. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) monitoring technology is an accurate biomass measurement that can rapidly monitor all types of biological wastewater treatment processes, aerobic and anaerobic alike.
