On Demand Webinars

Sharing the results of ALTRA’s latest PFAS pilot in the field is Martin Bureau, Eng., Ph. D., Vice-President Innovation at SANEXEN. He will summarize the on-site tests, go through the operating conditions and PFAS removal levels, and explain what this means for the future of ALTRA and PFAS treatment across North America.

As utilities, engineers, and consultants continue to pursue a digital transformation of their wet infrastructure systems, new cloud-based technologies are being implemented, fundamentally changing the way work is done.

The term Digitalization is thrown around all the time in today’s work environment. With people still working remotely, reduced maintenance and support budgets and the ever-present pressure to improve performance and reduce downtime, digitalization offers some real advantages. However, with these advantages comes concerns. Concerns about cloud security, susceptibility of networks to outside access and making sure only the proper people see the specific information they should. These are key questions that are being asked and deserve to be answered.

You may currently use mechanical meters at your utility—but did you know ultrasonic meters can deliver more value and capture additional revenue? Ultrasonic meters can be used in residential and commercial applications, helping utilities to manage their meter reading systems more efficiently.

Everywhere you look, new technological advancements impact your everyday life. Cell phone apps are everywhere; more and more electric vehicles are popping up on the road next to you; E-commerce is sidestepping traditional business models. But what about measurement instrumentation? In this brief webinar, we’ll explore how recent developments transformed basic devices into comprehensive information engines for gaining more knowledge about your flow, level and other processes.

The key to solving a problem starts with defining the problem, which can be half the challenge when transitioning from traditional to modern utility management methods. The other half of the challenge? Finding a solution to that problem. Learn from an industry expert who will present a practical viewpoint on lessons learned as a former utility manager, former President of ASCE’s utility-focused institute, and current technology evangelist. 

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a group of manmade chemical compounds are an example of an emerging contaminant that is attracting substantial attention of consumers, water professionals, and regulators due to their abundance in soil and drinking water sources, and their potential health effects. Accordingly, local regulation is already in effect in many states, and the EPA is taking measures to control the manufacturing, use, and exposure to PFAS and PFAS waste.

The Lead and Copper Rule revisions are final and the compliance date is set. Whether you are just starting to build your plan or finalizing your inventory, there’s a lot that will be asked of your system over the next few years.

Come learn about Hach latest digital process controller. The SC4500 is designed to integrate easily into your current system while allowing you to upgrade as your capabilities advance, without having to replace inventory. With a wide range of analog and digital connectivity options and the availability of intelligent instrument and data management features, the SC4500 unlocks the future, today.

Acoustic leak detection using IoT sensors is a cost-effective solution to detect emerging leaks in water distribution networks. The acoustic system identifies and pinpoints leakage events with high sensitivity, but it also detects non-leakage events which may overload the utility with data. In collaboration with the University of Waterloo, and supported by the Southern Ontario Water Consortium, an Echologics team used machine-learning techniques to narrow reported events to only the most relevant data visible to the water utility.

Advance your asset management with our new innovative solution, Info360 Asset. The future of accessible, collaborative, and innovative water asset management has arrived. From the field to the office, you want to make the most of your water data. And we’re going to show you how. 

As the water industry maneuvers the revised LCR, public water systems may be overwhelmed by gaps in data or lack of historical information needed to build a comprehensive lead service line inventory. Creating and validating inventory will act as the foundation of your compliance program and access to funding resources, so it’s important to get it right.

Join us for a look at how a deep dive into a wide range of data sets provided insight that has shaped Mazzei Injector’s municipal ozone strategy.

Hach understands that a lack of confidence in calibration, data management, and instrument usability can be challenging, time-consuming, and frustrating. In this webinar, we will introduce you to the HQ Series Portable Meter and how it can help optimize your processes.  This rugged, portable meter spans industries with a simple, robust solution for any water professional who wants to perform electrochemical analysis with confidence.

A variety of devices can be used for measuring water or wastewater flow where pipes cannot be kept full. Examples include open channel flow (OCF) devices like flumes and weirs in combination with secondary level measurement devices and/or electromagnetic flow (EMF) meter options. Each has its pluses and minuses. However, new proven EMF technology can deliver higher accuracy and the best performance when sized for flow rates at levels above 25 percent filled pipe. It also offers a safer environment, simpler installation, and better measuring performance than other available options.

This webinar explores how to select the optimal PFAS removal technology

When it comes to level instrumentation, one technology definitely does not fit all. Assuming you can use the same level device to meet every measurement need is unlikely to yield optimal results for your processes – or your bottom line.

Watch and learn how optimizing bio-control in paper & board production should be at the center of your water treatment program. Hosted by Lievin De Vriese, Business Development Manager at Sigura.

You’ve heard digital transformation is the future, but is it your future?  The fact is, only 8% of water utilities had advanced data management tools which unlock the benefits of cloud technology.  For everyone else, the challenges of legacy systems, technology silos, fragmented information, and excessive implementation costs have put digital transformation projects out of reach.  But that was the past.

In this on-demand webinar join Eric Heilveil of Siemens Industry Inc., as he discusses a new advance in custody transfer flow measurement for the gas industry, that delivers critical accuracy with a very low cost of ownership.

Now that the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) have been finalized and published in the Federal Register, the clock has started. While the revisions are a major step toward removing lead from our water systems, complying with these revisions will create some significant operational challenges.
