  • Next-Gen Water Monitoring: Autonomous And Real-Time Results

    Municipal, commercial, and industrial water users all face a common issue — how to monitor the quality of the water they use, dispose of, or distribute in a timely, cost-effective manner.

  • Filter Membrane Predictive Maintenance

    At manufacturing operations using ultrafiltration systems, the ultrafiltration membranes are used for numerous batches without replacement, using Clean-In-Place (CIP) operations in between batches to maintain filter performance. However, ineffective CIP cycles or long-term fouling or degradation of the filter membrane can result in increased cycle times to move the desired amount of product through the filter, lost yield as the product is unable to permeate the filter, or poor product quality as membrane failure may occur.

  • Durham, NC Improves Water Quality With Remote Pressure Monitoring, Sampling, And Flushing Stations

    The City of Durham is committed to providing safe drinking water to a service population of more than 289,000.  The City’s Department of Water Management (DWM) ensures the delivery of water to approximately 99,000 service connections through 1,400 miles of watermains. Lake Michie and Little River Reservoir are the two sources that deliver raw water to the City’s two treatment plants, using a combination of gravity flow and electric and hydro-powered pumping systems. Together, these plants have the combined treatment capacity of 64 million gallons per day (MGD) with an average demand is 28 MGD.

  • The Inevitability Of Digitalization

    The digital transformation of the water sector may trail other industries, but it will happen nonetheless — bringing with it tremendous benefits and opportunities.

  • Digitizing The Water Sector: An Opportunity To Improve Water Quality

    The greatest threats to our water supply can be overcome through the application of digital technologies, but widespread implementation remains a hurdle.

  • 10 LuminUltra Milestones Of 2020

    Like many companies, when we launched our 2020 strategic plan in January, we had no idea what the year would hold. We will remember 2020 not only as a year of unprecedented challenges, but of resilience and innovation.

  • Gwinnett County, GA, Improves Meter Program Through Science And Strategy

    Gwinnett County is located 30 miles northeast of Atlanta. The County is investigating methods to improve its strategic program for water meters. These improvements include updated testing equipment, a wider selection of approved metering technologies, and increased employee training. The goal is to install the most appropriate meter for each specific use, and to enhance the county’s excellent customer service.

  • Instrumentation And Digital Transformation

    Whether you call it Digital Transformation, Water 4.0, or Smart Water, the water industry as a whole is changing drastically in the way that it operates. If you ask a dozen people what these buzzwords mean, you will naturally get a dozen answers. It is because the Digital Transformation of the water industry is different for different people and for different operational and management aspects of what is done to produce water, distribute it to customers, collect it, treat it, and put it back to the environment.

  • Keeping Track Of Your Control Valve Information

    Water production and distribution in the City of Redlands, California, is managed by the Municipal Utilities & Engineering Department and is supplied from two water supplies, Mill Creek and the Santa Anna River. Treatment is provided at two conventional water treatment plants, Tate WTP and Hinckley WTP, each capable of producing approximately 14 MGD. Water is then fed into 7 different pressure zones due to elevation changes through a series of pump stations.

  • TOC Theory

    TOC is a popular analytical technique in water quality testing, as seen in many official analytical methods today. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP), recognizes TOC as a required test for purified water and water for injection (WFI). As stated in USP method <643> on Total Organic Carbon:

  • XV300 HMI & HMI-PLC – Enhance Operator Performance & Improve Remote Access Security

    Eaton’s XV-303 HMI revolutionizes facility control by offering an intuitive and ultra-modern user interface but in a rugged and secure form factor fit for water facilities. Multi-touch controls provide gesture support for a more modern intuitive interface. The XV-303 can provide both simple remote pump station HMI control and advanced water facility level SCADA.

  • Irrigation Technology In Agriculture: How New Technologies Overcome Challenges

    As the world’s population continues to increase at a fast pace, more food and water will be needed to sustain humanity. In the past 50 years, we have tripled our need for water and food, and there are no signs of this trend slowing down. As a result of these conditions, smart, innovative agricultural practices are needed now more than ever. Technology can, and already does, aid agriculture in innumerable ways. One prominent part of agriculture that can use technological innovation to increase efficiency and effectiveness is irrigation.
