FMCW Or ToF? Which Radar Level Technology Is Best For Tank Gauging In Custody Transfer Applications?
FMCW Or ToF? Which Radar Level Technology Is Best For Tank Gauging In Custody Transfer Applications?

Measuring the level of tanks used to hold fluids for custody transfer can be expensive. This is not due to the cost of the measurement instrumentation, but to what inaccurate measurements can cost the company. Picking the right instrumentation for applications is important. Which radar level technology should you choose for tank gauging in custody transfer applications? Frequency Modulated Continuous Waveform (FMCW) or pulsed Time-of-Flight (ToF or PToF).

Lightning Fast Response Prevents Extended Down Time
Lightning Fast Response Prevents Extended Down Time

The City of Gordon Texas’s drinking water facility was struck by lightning. Thinking long term, and desiring the latest technology available, the City took this opportunity to upgrade their on-line instrumentation with a range of new continuous monitoring on-line instruments including chlorine analyzers, pH monitoring, temperature monitoring, and turbidity monitoring.

Predictive Maintenance Enabled By Moving Secured Data To The Cloud Predictive Maintenance Enabled By Moving Secured Data To The Cloud

Cloud-based monitoring and reporting was all the rage at WEFTEC 2017. Water Talk sat down with Tom Perry, National Product Manager with Veolia to discuss Aquavista, one of the more established technologies for capturing critical data, storing it in the cloud and allowing it to be accessed real time, 24/7 from any smart, web-enabled device.

Real-Time Monitoring Aids Adoption Of New Water Treatment Technologies Real-Time Monitoring Aids Adoption Of New Water Treatment Technologies

With the ability to store mass amounts of data, real-time monitoring and the timely analysis of that data is spurring significant change in the water industry. As Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems, explains in this Water Talk interview, high frequency data is not only aiding in the battle to identify contamination but also in summarizing performance once a solution has been installed to fix it.

Microbial Contamination Monitoring For Water Distribution Systems Microbial Contamination Monitoring For Water Distribution Systems

Back in 2014, Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals wrote an executive order for municipalities to boost their chlorine residuals as high as possible to burn off all biofilm and stop the outbreak of brain-eating amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) that had been detected as the cause of death in a number of individuals.

Water Regulations Change As Data Accuracy Intensifies Water Regulations Change As Data Accuracy Intensifies

It makes sense that water regulations are written in line with the available means to detect contaminants. The same logic would suggest that as newer, more accurate diagnostic technologies become available, the list of MCLs and the depth of water regulations will continue to evolve.

Mazzei Degas Separators Selected For Wichita Aquifer Project Mazzei Degas Separators Selected For Wichita Aquifer Project

A key component of the water supply plan for the City of Wichita, Kansas, was recharging the large aquifer that lies under the region with water from the Little Arkansas River. The river basin contains substantial farming operations which, during rain events, spike the river water with the commonly used herbicide Atrazine. Atrazine concentrations in the river frequently rose forcing the city to shutdown the bank filtration system. Advanced oxidation process (AOP) was selected to remove the herbicide. The AOP reactor’s design limited the amount of hydraulic backpressure it could tolerate. Consequently, Mazzei was challenged by the project’s design team to remove the entrained gas bubbles that remained from the prior oxidation treatment at a “not to exceed” hydrostatic backpressure of 19 feet.
