  • Increasing Entry To Market For A Multinational EPC

    Murry & Roberts is a multinational project life cycle group based in South Africa that has been optimizing client's fixed capital investment for more than a century. They have utilized the design generator for the past 2 years to accelerate their entry to market.

  • Alleviating A Bottleneck In Proposals For An Innovative Water Firm

    Organica Water is a global provider of innovative solutions for the treatment and recycling of wastewater. They currently have 100+ installations of their innovative 'garden-like' WWTP's around the world. They were the first end users of the Transcend Design Generator and continue to use the software as a way to keep cost low and bid on an ever-increasing number of projects.

  • 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.

  • Sustainability In Times Of Stress — A 'Bottom Line' Endeavor

    What's your company’s “bottom line?” If “sustainable water management” is your first answer, you probably work in municipal water.

  • Kansas Water Utility Identifies Non-Revenue Water Through Trimble Water Technology

    Mitigating non-revenue water (NRW) challenges has taken an increasing role in water utilities over the past several years. There is a saying in the water industry that ‘what gets measured gets managed’ and the American Water Works Association has recommended water utilities rely on actionable performance indicators to meet the challenges brought on by real losses and apparent losses resulting in underbilling.

  • Small Utility Achieves Astounding Results In Customer Service, Labor Output By Switching To AMI

    A team member from Master Meter approached Amanda Selph, Business Manager at Belforest Water System, with a problem; the meters in the system were rapidly nearing the end of their life span and Belforest’s growth rate was exceeding staff’s capacity to keep up. “We were changing 30 to 40 meters a month that were no longer working, and that was on top of the growth we were experiencing. It would not be uncommon for them [Belforest employees] to change out 50 to 60 meters a month,” Mrs. Selph states. “We were at a tipping point from a staffing perspective and we needed a solution that would show immediate financial results.”

  • Building An Enterprise GIS To Support Efficiency Across The Organization

    Padre Dam Municipal Water District provides water, wastewater, recycled water, and park and recreation services to over 102,000 residents in East San Diego County in California. Padre Dam's infrastructure is worth over $700 million, and it has an annual budget of $76.3 million. Padre Dam imports 100 percent of its drinking water supply and treats two million gallons per day (MGD) of wastewater at the Ray Stoyer Water Recycling Facility.

  • InfoAsset Planner Helps The Largest US Water And Wastewater Utility Save 10% A Year

    Large utilities need to maintain high levels of service when it comes to water and wastewater systems. If they do not they risk failures, fines, and costly reactive maintenance. This specific organization was looking to find a solution that could improve decision support models and monitoring data integrity.
