Is Manual Calibration The Right Choice For You?
Is Manual Calibration The Right Choice For You?

When selecting a new analyzer for your plant, there are many different features to consider. One of those is the choice of how the instrument will be calibrated, namely between an inexpensive manual calibration and a more complex automatic calibration method. (To be clear, we will define automatic calibration as a feature that involves no operator intervention at the instrument.) Factors that influence this choice are financial, process, staff levels, and personal preference. Let’s explore each of those.

  • Precipitant Savings Through Optimized Phosphate Elimination With Integrated Predictive Diagnostics
    Precipitant Savings Through Optimized Phosphate Elimination With Integrated Predictive Diagnostics

    Dosing of the precipitant was adjusted manually based on the laboratory measurement value of the daily composite sample and so was unable to respond to possible peaks. Although being compliant with the effluent limits, the values observed fluctuate between 0.2 and 0.8 mg/L.

    Compliance and consistent high quality are two of the key goals within the beverage industry. Hach® provides support for these goals through comprehensive analyses of water and beer.

  • The Importance Of Measuring Total Organic Carbon
    The Importance Of Measuring Total Organic Carbon

    Organic carbon compounds vary greatly. In fact, one of the first lessons in most introductory Organic Chemistry courses explains that the number of possible carbon compounds is virtually infinite due to carbon’s ability to form long, chain-like molecules. While chromatographic methods like gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are able to make quantitative determinations for specific compounds, the user must first know which specific compounds to look for.

    Advances In Paper-Based Devices For Water Quality Analysis

    Water quality test strips have been around for decades. They are usually constructed from a porous media, including different types of paper, and undergo a color change when dipped into water containing the analyte of interest. These test strips have seen application in swimming pools, aquariums, hot tubs, remediation sites, and other commercial/environmental areas.

    Sticking With Innovation That Works: Steinbach, Manitoba’s Plant Upgrade

    Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing census agglomeration areas in Canada with a population of about 50,000 people. Though Steinbach is primarily an agricultural community, it is also the regional economic hub of southeastern Manitoba. Due to the age of the wastewater control system, the city decided it was time for some new technology. This profile will describe the process of that upgrade and why they chose VTScada.

  • Clay County Utility Authority Project Profile
    Clay County Utility Authority Project Profile

    Clay County, located in Northern Florida, has a population of almost 200,000. In April 2016, Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA) needed a new SCADA system to monitor seven reclaimed water sites that the Authority uses to determine water storage times, using this data to route water from site to site. VTScada was selected by CCUA and their engineer.
