ASSET MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS & INSIGHTS FOR UTILITY MANAGERS

  • Capitalizing On A New Mindset For Asset Management
    Capitalizing On A New Mindset For Asset Management

    Reasons for changing water or wastewater asset management practices include unacceptable process downtime, statutory requirements for documenting infrastructure integrity, or the desire to refine process cost-effectiveness and maintenance-budget ROI. Here are examples of strategic approaches that can better match desirable asset management outcomes to the real needs of water utility operations.

  • Plotting The Quickest Route To Better Asset Maintenance
    Plotting The Quickest Route To Better Asset Maintenance

    A variety of research indicates that industry loses 3 percent to 5 percent (and in some cases more) of its productivity annually to unplanned shutdowns due to equipment failure. With all the data and connectivity available through today’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology and SCADA systems, water and wastewater treatment operations can reduce those losses significantly…if management is willing to consider and adopt proven strategic approaches.

  • Put A 'Stop' To Water-Main-Repair Shutdowns And Boil-Water Notices
    Put A 'Stop' To Water-Main-Repair Shutdowns And Boil-Water Notices

    For most water or wastewater system operators, engineers, and repair crews, the only thing worse than facing a 24”-main emergency repair is facing an even larger one. To those who have never performed an emergency line stop and bypass, the idea of completing repairs with no service outage, no long-term shutdown, and no ‘boil water’ notice is almost beyond belief. To those who have, it’s a sigh of relief.

  • LTE-M Standard Redefines Cellular Efficiency For Water Meter Readings
    LTE-M Standard Redefines Cellular Efficiency For Water Meter Readings

    The term “cellular” often calls to mind certain assumptions and limitations based on prior experience with consumer cellphone networks. Don’t confuse cellular-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications with past cellular experiences, though. The relatively new Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) standard represents a whole new ballgame. In short, “This is not your father’s cellular network.”

  • Continuous “Hands Off” Insulation Resistance Testing Of Critical Motors
    Continuous “Hands Off” Insulation Resistance Testing Of Critical Motors

    Constant monitoring of critical motors while de-energized prevents failures on startup, reduces unscheduled downtime, saves on major rewinding repairs and increases personnel safety

    Improving Water Treatment Efficiency Via Energy Management, Optimization

    The cost of water delivered to customers is as much about the energy needed to move it as the chemicals required to treat it. Balancing water chemistry, infrastructure costs, and energy consumption is key to optimizing the overall cost of operation. Experience shows that some astute water suppliers are closer to achieving their ideal outcomes than most people realize. Here are some insights into how that works.
