WATER INSTRUMENTATION RESOURCES

  • Since the Forsyth County, Georgia, Department of Water and Sewer deployed the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER® Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM) more than a year ago, it has seen numerous advantages. But the AFC SEMPER’s ability to move from one system asset to another, “Lift and Shift,” is among the greatest. Introduced in February 2020 in partnership with Trimble Water, the AFC SEMPER RPM is a wireless, battery-powered pressure recorder that provides utilities with the data needed to monitor water pressure throughout their systems, help identify transients and reduce non-revenue water.

  • The United Nation’s (UN) World Water Development Report recently stated that nearly 6 billion people will suffer from clean water scarcity by 2050. Singapore is using desalination as part of the solution to their water supply issue in order to provide enough clean drinking water for its ever-growing population of 5.5 million.

  • In March 2021, the city of Fairfield, California’s Water Division was tasked with commissioning a new 36-inch Cross Town Transmission Line (CTTL). The CTTL will enhance the already robust distribution system and better serve the water needs of the Water Division’s 33,000 customers. This new CTTL, however, will change the dynamics of the city’s current distribution system. To better understand how the new CTTL would affect operations, the AMERICAN Flow Control SEMPER Remote Pressure Monitor (RPM) was deployed to strategic points throughout the system.

  • Accurate measurement delivered by a range of ABB flowmeters is helping the company behind the world-renowned Macallan whisky brand to maintain its high product quality standards following its move to its new 187.2M USD distillery.   

  • The Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) produces and supplies drinking water to over 11 million people in the Bangkok Metropolitan area covering the provinces of Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samutprakarn. On average, around 5.47 million cubic meters of water gets distributed daily through a network of pipelines spanning 37,700 kilometers.

  • Water Online’s “Math Solutions Explained” series, presented by wastewater consultant and trainer Dan Theobald (“Wastewater Dan”), educates operators by explaining pipe volume gallons calculations.

  • 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.

  • Self-Priming Centrifugal Chopper Pumps

    Vaughan's self-priming centrifugal chopper pumps are available in 4" and 6" designs and are guaranteed non-clogging pumps...

  • Application Note: Busseron Creek Watershed Partnership Addresses Concerns In A Rural Watershed As with other watershed organizations, the Busseron Creek Watershed Partnership (BCWP) exists because of surface water quality degradation. In this case, those waters drain 163,231 acres of a watershed that crosses the boundaries of Vigo, Clay, Green, and Sullivan counties in West- Central Indiana. By YSI
  • The Lift Station Solution

    The increasing number of “flushable” consumer products is presenting serious challenges for the standard non-clog lift station. With thousands of proven lift station applications, Vaughan chopper pumps are a proven solution to the toughest plugging problems.

  • OPTIMASS 1010 Coriolis Mass Flowmeter

    The OPTIMASS 1010 is a cost-effective twin straight tube Coriolis mass flowmeter for a wide range of universal and hygienic applications with liquids and gases (up to 170,000 kg/h or 6,235 lb/min and +130°C / +266°F). It features an integrated Modbus converter. This makes the flowmeter an ideal solution where a DCS or a PLC is already in use and extensive communication options and control functions are not necessary. By way of its Modbus interface the flowmeter integrates easily into existing controller systems. There is no need for a conventional signal converter. Purchase costs can be saved.
