WATER INSTRUMENTATION RESOURCES

  • Modernizing Monitoring And Manual Data Entry For Water And Wastewater

    Advancements in security and technology help bring confidence — and a multitude of benefits — to remote, cloud-based utility monitoring.

  • Mitigating Capital Upgrades To A Wastewater Treatment Plant Using DNA Sequencing

    A municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was planning to carry out an expensive capital upgrade to improve treatment performance and bring the plant into compliance. A study was done to determine if alternative solutions to the upgrade could be found.

  • 2020 Industry Forecast: Treatment Moves Down The Line

    It’s no secret that safe and readily available water is important for public health, can boost economic growth and help reduce poverty. But factors such as climate change, growing populations, natural disasters, increasing water scarcity, and urbanization continue to challenge water systems around the world. 

  • Preparing To Tackle The Hydra Of LCR Revisions

    As a journalist serving the water industry — but not yet a seasoned technical veteran — I attended a recent Lead In Drinking Water Forum sponsored by AWWA NJ to learn about the challenges of complying with the proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR). What I heard impressed upon me the technical, administrative, and logistical challenges of delivering safe, lead-free drinking water all the way to user taps. Here are my takeaways.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Do Your Plant Instruments Play Nice With Others? The Benefits Of Integrated Technologies

    Digital devices provide two-way communication, so they can be programmed from the control room. However, the bigger benefit is that they can be part of a system offering assured interoperability to provide a seamless flow of information. This type of integration between key components of the water treatment and distribution process improves decision-making and overall equipment optimization.

WATER INSTRUMENTATION SOLUTIONS

  • Professional Plus Handheld Multiparameter Instrument The YSI Professional Plus handheld multiparameter meter provides extreme flexibility for the measurement of a variety of combinations for dissolved oxygen, conductivity, specific conductance, salinity, resistivity, total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, ORP, pH/ORP combination, ammonium (ammonia), nitrate, chloride and temperature.
  • Reverse Osmosis Application Bulletin

    Electrical conductivity is the most convenient method for testing RO water quality and membrane performance. Pure water is actually a poor electrical conductor. The amount of ionized substances (salts, acids, or bases) dissolved in water determines its conductivity. Normally, the vast majority of the dissolved minerals in tap, surface or ground water

  • ABB Ability™ For Water Distribution Network

    $40 million cost reduction through real-time water distribution control.
