Many new health care technologies have advanced over the past decade to enable doctors to perform more procedures in their offices over hospital only settings. However, hysteroscopy — used to identify or treat problems of the uterus — has been slower to respond to this shift.
The water industry may be “all-in” on supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. But are we getting a maximum return on this investment? Data analytics lead to points of action that can return big savings on data acquisition systems. Make sure you are getting the most from your SCADA system data for both immediate and long-term returns.
Ever since drinking water utilities eliminated the need for users to pump or carry water from its source, consumers have tended to take water for granted as a low-cost resource of virtually unlimited supply. Because changing that perspective is such a multifaceted challenge, the answers require multilayered approaches as well. Here are some links and guidelines designed to help utilities do just that.
As states and the federal government march toward PFAS regulation, it’s only a matter of time before most municipal water systems will be required to address the contaminant. And with the constantly changing patchwork of proposed regulations, meaning the earliest imposed rules will likely evolve, PFAS promises to be a moving target for a long time. Preparing now is the key to be in the best position to maintain compliance.
Whether the experts come from a CRO or a regulatory consultancy, their help will be critical in helping develop the trial, meet with the Institutional Biosafety Committee, establish a timeline, and manage expectations. Here’s why.
For municipal water systems, the endless demand to maintain water quality can be challenging. Anytime the quality or pressure drops far enough to necessitate a boil notice, the costs to inform residents and get the problem under control can be extensive. It can also create a public relations nightmare. Newer solutions provide a cost-effective way to build an entire smart utility network to more proactively manage water quality and generate greater ROI.
Today’s wastewater stream is dramatically different than its content just a decade ago. Yet, many municipal wastewater treatment plants are functioning under older designs and are not optimized for the new reality. There are solutions to attack the problem without the significant expense of a major system or plant overhaul.
Consistency is paramount in brewing operations. Careful attention to water quality control ensures every beer tastes the same everywhere it’s distributed. This is especially true for MadTree Brewing, Ohio’s first canned craft brewer. Since the company’s inception in 2013, reverse osmosis (RO) has been used for all its process water
Although an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, all the money spent on regularly scheduled maintenance can add up to a ton of waste — and still result in unplanned downtime — if asset managers can’t reasonably differentiate between which equipment truly needs attention and which doesn’t. Fortunately, data-centric analytics derived from physical performance in real time can make that distinction. Here’s how.
