WATER INSTRUMENTATION RESOURCES

  • 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.

  • In the summer of 2020, the Lowcountry Regional Water System in Hampton, South Carolina, had a customer located in an industrial park report a low water pressure issue. The company was a commercial laundry that served the hospitality industry and provided linens to hotels around the Hilton Head area. The low water pressure issue was causing the company’s heat recovery system to work improperly shortly before the July 4 holiday. In its first use of the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER™ Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM), Lowcountry Regional Water System deployed two units to resolve the issue. One device was located on the water system’s side of the meter and the other device was placed inside the company’s building, where water enters the facility at the backflow preventer.

  • Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.

  • In industry today, everyone is looking for ways to conserve a bit of energy and save some money. For instance, consider the energy consumption across the United States just in the water treatment process. With thousands of public water utilities, the amount of energy usage is significant.

  • Defining a sustainable digital strategy and employing solutions in a phased manner can result in multiple productivity, maintenance, reliability, and cost benefits for water utilities.

  • Last year, COVID-19 emerged as a global health threat, in more ways than one. In additional to the toll posed by the virus itself, the pandemic presents a number of other safety threats as priorities and resources shift to tackle the larger concern at hand. In particular, as buildings shut down to accommodate stay-at-home orders, property teams may be suspending routine maintenance tasks for the time being, which enables harmful bacteria to spread until workforces return.
