    4/6/2017

    The C445 motor management relay offers the most configurable protection options in the industry, with features specifically designed to protect critical pumps from costly damages due to dead-head and other underloaded or starved pump conditions.

  2. UV Technology Offers Solution For Emerging Water Crisis
    2/19/2014

    Many are turning to UV as an effective barrier to enable the reuse of wastewater, for indirect reuse, and aquifer recharge.

  3. Active Energy Control – Energy Reductions Of Up To 10% Above Standard Drives
    4/1/2017

    Energy costs continue to increase. At the same time, there is increased pressure to reduce utility bills without sacrificing operations or comfort.

  4. Application Note: Building A Baseline In Florida
    5/25/2006
    The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) knows that establishing dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrient criteria for the state’s water bodies is a challenge – both scientifically and politically
  5. Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement
    7/4/2013

    A North Carolina-based specialty chemical manufacturer, a major producer of insect repellent, was looking for a better way to measure the liquid level in its glass-lined agitated reactor. The company uses a number of complex technologies to manufacture sebacates, adipates, isophthalates, catalysts, alkyds, and other natural and renewable chemistries based on castor and citrates.

  6. Increase Ink Jet Print Speeds By 15% With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors
    6/30/2017

    Many high-speed, wide-format ink jet printer manufacturers are now using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors to remove air bubbles and excess gases from ink to reduce downtime and improve yields. Entrained bubbles and excess gases are often the cause of printing surface defects and ink flow interruptions that can cause printer shut-downs.

  7. Degassing Boiler Feed Water in China with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors
    7/6/2017

    ShenLan Environment Inc. located in Shanghai, China uses 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors in their boiler feed water treatment systems. These systems realize lower operating costs with the added benefit of reducing the chemicals added to the boiler feed water.

  8. Application Note: Dairy Farms Use YSI Instruments To Map Volume Of Wastewater Lagoons
    8/4/2011
    On July 1, 2010, dairy farm waste management plans are due to the California Regional Water Quality Control Board. By YSI
  9. Application Note: Small Team Saves Big Hassles With The Professional Plus Multiparameter Instrument
    1/20/2010
    In the past, Shinkle and her colleagues carried separate YSI meters for pH and DO, she notes. Now they use the YSI Professional Plus handheld multiparameter instrument, which allows them to measure pH, DO and temperature with one quick, reliable instrument. By YSI
  10. The Importance Of Measuring Total Organic Carbon
    4/13/2017

    Organic carbon compounds vary greatly. In fact, one of the first lessons in most introductory Organic Chemistry courses explains that the number of possible carbon compounds is virtually infinite due to carbon’s ability to form long, chain-like molecules. While chromatographic methods like gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are able to make quantitative determinations for specific compounds, the user must first know which specific compounds to look for.
