DRINKING WATER MEASUREMENT RESOURCES

  • In March 2021, the city of Fairfield, California’s Water Division was tasked with commissioning a new 36-inch Cross Town Transmission Line (CTTL). The CTTL will enhance the already robust distribution system and better serve the water needs of the Water Division’s 33,000 customers. This new CTTL, however, will change the dynamics of the city’s current distribution system. To better understand how the new CTTL would affect operations, the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM) was deployed to strategic points throughout the system.

  • Accurate measurement delivered by a range of ABB flowmeters is helping the company behind the world-renowned Macallan whisky brand to maintain its high product quality standards following its move to its new 187.2M USD distillery.   

  • The Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) produces and supplies drinking water to over 11 million people in the Bangkok Metropolitan area covering the provinces of Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samutprakarn. On average, around 5.47 million cubic meters of water gets distributed daily through a network of pipelines spanning 37,700 kilometers.

  • Water Online’s “Math Solutions Explained” series, presented by wastewater consultant and trainer Dan Theobald (“Wastewater Dan”), educates operators by explaining pipe volume gallons calculations.

  • Water distribution system infrastructures are designed to deliver drinking water to end users, but utilities are continually faced with distinct challenges to fulfill this fundamental objective. For example, these utilities improve customer service by delivering water with high pressure, but on the other hand, water conservation policies push them to minimize water distribution leaks. For this reason, water utilities invest heavily in SCADA and telemetry technologies to support operational decisions. However, unlocking historical operational data and fusing it with other data (such as billing information from AMR/AMI networks) to generate actionable insights has proven difficult.

  • Hydroinformatics offers a fresh perspective that is enabling communities around the world to tackle ageold problems in new ways and with a bigger toolset.

  • Using a single programmable controller such as Schneider Electric’s M580 Safety Controller to manage both process and safety systems can help speed up deployment, improve reliability and sustainability of operations, enhance cybersecurity, and support greater productivity and transparency.

  • This white paper presents ABB’s new TSP341-N temperature sensor for non-invasive temperature measurement and provides examples for applications and accuracies that can be achieved. The present Edition II of the whitepaper additionally presents the results of a direct comparison of non-invasive temperature measurements with classic measurements in a measuring medium, achieved in realistic conditions. These results emphasize the outstanding suitability of the device for multiple applications.

  • More frequent capture of water supply and distribution data is becoming a must-have for utilities as they strive to build network resilience, improve customer experience, and meet regulatory expectations. Ovarro’s associate product line manager for RTUs & loggers, Adam Wright, shares insights into the latest developments.

DRINKING WATER MEASUREMENT SOLUTIONS

  • Coriolis Mass Flowmeter: CoriolisMaster FCB430 And FCB450

    CoriolisMaster FCB400 series of compact Coriolis mass flowmeters feature low pressure drop, high capacity, intuitive ABB common display, five modular I/O's and HART communication.

  • Ultrasonic Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Plants

    Radar technology is often viewed as the “best” method of level measurement, but this isn’t necessarily true in the water industry.

  • TIDALFLUX 2300 Electromagnetic Flowmeter

    The TIDALFLUX 2300 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) with a patented, capacitive level measurement for use in partially filled pipes (up to DN1600 / 64”). The meter is the ideal solution for flow measurement of municipal or industrial wastewater in pressureless transport lines. However, the EMF is also suitable for measurement of effluent brine from dredging, mining or sea/well water injection applications. Unlike open channel systems (Venturi, V-notches etc.) the inline flowmeter is a closed measuring solution without obstructions and with a much better accuracy at lower total costs of ownership.

  • VOC Headspace

    Static headspace is one of the most popular techniques due to its versatility for analyzing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a complex variety of matrices. This is due to the elimination of tedious sample preparation steps and prevents contamination problems that are common to other sample introduction techniques. Teledyne Tekmar draws on our experience as a leader in low-level VOC analysis with the introduction of this companion autosampler to the Headspace product line.

  • Lead Sampling In Schools

    Making results data public is key to your lead programs success. Easily download reports to share with state and district stakeholders.
