WASTEWATER INSTRUMENTATION RESOURCES
The Future Of Collection Systems
As real-time monitoring continues to infiltrate the water industry, it’s time to apply such instrumentation to detect the other type of infiltration — along with inflow, snow and ice melt, etc.
Improve Your Plant Efficiency With Accurate Water And Wastewater Monitoring
A West Coast wastewater management facility provides design, management, and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system for an entire county, including the conveyance system and treatment system. The wastewater treatment plant has been established for over 50 years and has the capacity to treat 41 million gallons of sanitary sewage per day (mgd).value chain. Siemens suggested that the customer try the Siemens HydroRanger 200 controller. The HydroRanger 200 uses proven, continuous, ultrasonic echo ranging technology to monitor water and wastewater of any consistency up to 15 m (50 ft) in depth.
The Drive Towards Digital Transformation
It seems that everywhere that you go in the water industry at the current time, somebody is talking about digital transformation…or if we go back five minutes, it was Water 4.0…and 10 minutes ago (it seems), it was “smart water.” These are all very well used buzzwords that the industry is destined to think about for a short-term and then promptly forget about. In reality, though, we as an industry have been hit by a number of different concepts for a number of different technological aspects for a good number of years now. For almost as long we have had a term for all of this — “widgets.”
Remote Monitoring Provides Water Resilience During Crisis
Managing three drinking water treatment facilities, multiple pump stations, more than 350 miles of pipelines, and a wastewater treatment facility is challenging even in normal conditions for a small city where agriculture is an economic driver and water demand can exceed 22 MGD.
Microbiological Monitoring Of Paints Using 2nd Generation ATP
A paint manufacturer produces a wide range of paint products for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. The products are manufactured in large batches of up to 10 tons. Before each batch is packaged and shipped, a number of tests are performed to ensure that the product meets strict quality control requirements.
Using ATP To Reduce Risks From Legionella In Cooling Towers
A semiconductor manufacturing facility in France relies on an extensive cooling system to maintain stable conditions throughout their production facilities. The cooling system includes 19 cooling towers and 14 cooling water networks spread over a 135-acre site.
Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment
The movie and sports term has infiltrated the business world and has important implications for the water/wastewater industry.
How To Use ATP And DNA In A Wastewater Nitrification Monitoring Plan
Ammonia removal is a key metric for assessing wastewater treatment facility performance. This is because ammonia contributes to aquatic life toxicity. Furthermore, nitrogen, along with phosphorus, is a driver of receiving water eutrophication. Eutrophication, which simply is an over-enrichment of nutrients, can be detrimental to environmental and public health. It can result in harmful algae blooms, dissolved oxygen depletion, fish kills, and other damaging impacts.
Calibrating Success: Improved Tools To Maintain Flowmeter Accuracy
Water utilities with highly successful monitoring programs tend to share a common trait: they have a well-defined plan for calibration that emphasizes frequency and tracking. However, when done properly, this process is time-consuming and often leads to unnecessary labor and downtime. The good news is that advanced metering technology is available for plants to get a better handle on the instrument’s performance with significantly less effort.
Water Monitoring's Triple Threat: Bad Habits, Bad Readings, Bad Results
When water and wastewater plant operators can’t get accurate flow measurements or analytical readings — or lack confidence in their instruments’ readings — it creates challenges with the process. When substandard water goes to homes and causes a boil order, or discharge pollutes a lake or reservoir, the resulting bad press, fines, and potential lawsuits erode public confidence. Avoiding these kinds of problems is rooted in good preventive maintenance habits.
