On Demand Webinars

A southwestern (AZ) community faced a tough challenge to quickly identify an alternative water source and install a new and cost-effective treatment solution in a period of 6 months to provide potable water for the community during the temporary shutdown of the existing surface water treatment plants. This webinar will describe in detail the rationale and design criteria used to build the ultra-high recovery flow-reversal RO system used in this application.

New and increasing nutrient regulations for phosphorus and nitrogen are driving innovative operational solutions and technologies to meet wastewater facility needs. In this on-demand webinar, you’ll join Steve Myers and Adam Jennings of Hach for a discussion on the classic approach to nutrient sampling and monitoring, and where new efficiencies can be realized.

The Virtual Water Expo brought to you by Water Online took place on August 11 & 12, 2020. The inaugural virtual trade show for the water and wastewater industries showcased presentations from 23 leading water and wastewater solution providers, covering topics and technologies including treatment, fluid handling, remote monitoring, digitization, and more.

Surface water treatment, water remediation and waste water treatment are critical issues in providing safe drinking water. Control of turbidity and removal of NOM remains one of the main challenges facing water utilities. Control of the flocculation process and adjustment of coagulant dose during the course of water and waste water treatment is often a challenging step in the water treatment process.

The session will outline how a unique metering technology has accomplished this challenging task with superb performance and longevity. Over the course of the last 30 years, since it was first introduced, KROHNE's TIDALFLUX meter has proven to be the only product that has stood the test of time. It is a full-bore device, it has no moving parts, it is factory-calibrated, and is approved for hazardous areas and for water, wastewater, and industrial applications.

Non-revenue water is one of the biggest challenges for water utilities worldwide and in the U.S., contributing to billions of dollars’ worth of treated water lost each year. And, with up to 31 percent of water loss coming from leaks in service connections, it is crucial to have detailed knowledge and transparency across your distribution network. That’s why Kamstrup has developed a next-generation smart water meter with integrated acoustic leak detection to proactively identify potential leaks in service connections, which enables utilities to prioritize their daily efforts to where and when they will have the biggest impact. 

Control valves are critical components in almost every process, and one of the most expensive. Between the compressed air driving your pneumatic actuators and the regular maintenance on the valve assemblies themselves, many factors contribute to the continual costs of keeping your process up and running.

Recent market research forecasts $6.3 billion of investment in AI for water management by 2030 in the U.S. and Canada alone — but why? Early adopters of AI-optimization tools are improving efficiency and lowering operational costs — all while keeping compliant with local regulations. Join James Legue, Director of AI Products at Innovyze, to find out the key factors driving the transformative impact AI is having on water operations across multiple industries.

Martin Dingman of Siemens Process Instrumentation will discuss the new FS230 clamp-on ultrasonic meters for liquid and gas hydrocarbon flow measurement. Topics to be covered are theory of operation, innovative features and benefits, liquid and gas hydrocarbon applications, installation tips and tricks, and selection criteria.

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) pays about $20M for its water pumping energy costs. To evaluate real‐time pumping efficiency, GLWA conducted an efficiency evaluation utilizing records from various digital meters installed at its water-pumping stations. This webinar will discuss the development of the program, including the use of SCADA and OSIsoft’s PI System to automate pump flow and efficiency calculations, and how the information was used to identify oversized or inefficient pumps, correct to the preferred operating range and best efficiency point, and realize substantial energy savings for GLWA.

This presentation will identify key value drivers for water utilities to address during business case development to justify projects with internal and external stakeholders. It will discuss best practices during procurement to minimize risk pricing and risk exposure during the 20-year contract, and will identify use-cases of interval data to further unlock both customer and operational benefits.

Peter Evans, Regional Director with StormwateRx LLC introduces Clara Filter, StormwateRx’s newest stormwater pollutant removal system for high-rate sediment (TSS) removal.
