  • The Insta-Valve 250 Minimizes Disruption During An Emergency
    The Insta-Valve 250 Minimizes Disruption During An Emergency

    Like so many municipalities, the City of Miamisburg has an aging infrastructure of valves that had not been excercised in decades. Read the full project brief to learn how Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed greater control that minimized shutdown when a water main ruptured.

  • Evolution Of Pipeline Leak Detection
    Evolution Of Pipeline Leak Detection

    As the sheer number of pipelines crisscrossing the country continues to increase, there is an urgent need to ensure pipeline infrastructure safety. The age of many of the pipelines and the number of different products flowing makes this a challenging prospect. Now, new technology has been developed that meets the need for reliable protection that complies with regulatory requirements while eliminating false alarms.

  • New Elevation Data Triple Estimates Of Global Vulnerability To Sea-Level Rise And Coastal Flooding
    New Elevation Data Triple Estimates Of Global Vulnerability To Sea-Level Rise And Coastal Flooding

    Most estimates of global mean sea-level rise this century fall below 2 m. This quantity is comparable to the positive vertical bias of the principle digital elevation model (DEM) used to assess global and national population exposures to extreme coastal water levels, NASA’s SRTM. CoastalDEM is a new DEM utilizing neural networks to reduce SRTM error. Here we show — employing CoastalDEM — that 190 M people currently occupy global land below projected high tide lines for 2100 under low carbon emissions, up from 110 M today, for a median increase of 80 M.

UTILITY MANAGEMENT PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

ME-8 Encoder Register ME-8 Encoder Register

Now available for use on all current Mueller Systems positive displacement meters in 5/8” through 2” sizes, the ME-8 utilizes heat treated tempered, glass lens and corrosion resistant copper can to house the register light tubes, electronics, self-lubricating gearing, and drive magnet. The register delivers extraordinary functionality and value when paired with the latest metrology and AMR/AMI solutions available from Mueller Systems.

Traveling Bridge Clarifiers Traveling Bridge Clarifiers

Traveling bridge clarifiers perform the same functions as circular clarifiers. Both water and wastewater applications are served by this bridge system, including both primary and secondary clarification.

Aquis Water Network Management Aquis Water Network Management

80% of your capital is invested in the distribution network. Aquis puts you in control.

Water Network Optimization Suite Water Network Optimization Suite

The Water Network Optimization Suite by Schneider Electric provides water utilities an overview of the entire water distribution network in real-time and in “future-time” by enabling operators to be forewarned of critical situations in the network so that immediate actions to prevent or mitigate service disruptions can be taken with enough lead time.

MultiSmart Pump Station Control MultiSmart Pump Station Control

Flygt’s MultiSmart Pump Station Control handles up to six pumps and monitors pump voltage and amperage to calculate real power consumption and optimize pump energy efficiency. Control panel costs are also reduced due to built-in functionality such as 3-phase current monitoring.

SR II® Low Lead Meter SR II® Low Lead Meter

Positive displacement water meter with Sensus® electronic register+™.
SR II meters consist of three basic components: maincase, measuring chamber and sealed register. Maincases are made of Bismuth BiAlloy CDA89836 or EnviroBrass™ II C89520 with externally-threaded spuds. Registers are housed in a bonnet of synthetic polymer.

Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note

Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.

Remote Monitoring And Maintenance Through Digitalization Remote Monitoring And Maintenance Through Digitalization

Siemens offers to our customers the ability to both make process measurements and to remotely monitor the activity and health of that instrumentation without the need for SCADA systems or other expensive process control room products. By utilizing Siemens’ ability to offer unparalleled flow, level, pressure, temperature, and weight measurement as well as valve control, we can provide a broad range of process measurements and offer unequaled monitoring of the health and performance of those products.

  • Striking An Ideal Balance In WTP/WWTP Chlorine Dosing
    Striking An Ideal Balance In WTP/WWTP Chlorine Dosing

    For managing chlorine feed rates, automated chlorine analysis has always offered advantages over manual grab samples and feed adjustments. Today, chlorine analyzers connected to cloud-based systems for integrated instrument, data, and process management are bringing new continual-sampling insights to water and wastewater treatment plants (WTPs/WWTPs).

  • Leveraging Connectivity For Improved Chlorine Analyzer Performance
    Leveraging Connectivity For Improved Chlorine Analyzer Performance

    While accurate instrument readings are important to water treatment plant (WTP) and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators, having deeper understanding of plant operations is even more valuable. Here’s how intelligent networking capabilities are giving plant operators better understanding and control over their processes by enhancing instrumentation operation, data sharing, and maintenance management.
