  • A Lid For Every Pot: Retrofitting To Meet New Aeration Challenges
    A Lid For Every Pot: Retrofitting To Meet New Aeration Challenges

    Aeration for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment involves more than simply moving volumes of air through a treatment basin. It really comes down to creating and sustaining an optimal oxygenated environment for microorganisms to convert oxygen consuming compounds into CO2 and water. Here are some key considerations for making better retrofit decisions about upgrading existing basin capacity and efficiency with jet aeration.

  • Overcoming Inconsistencies In Digester Gas Measurement
    Overcoming Inconsistencies In Digester Gas Measurement

    Thermal mass flow meters do a good job of measuring gas flows in water treatment and wastewater treatment applications. Measuring digester gases, which can contain moisture ranging from vapor to droplets, however, makes the job a bit tougher for all gas flow measurement technologies. Identifying the right solutions to deliver accurate, repeatable and reliable readings without having to reengineer the piping system becomes much easier and more economical by following these helpful guidelines.

    Smart Meters Educate Consumers On Water Usage

    Can you imagine calling the electric company to demand a rebate because you had just received your bill and realized that over the past month, you inadvertently left all your lights on? As ludicrous as this scenario seems, it’s exactly the type of call water utilities receive from their customers.

  • If A Pipe Leaks In A Forest, Does It Make A Sound? (Part I)
    If A Pipe Leaks In A Forest, Does It Make A Sound? (Part I)

    Beyond the existential philosophy implications, the consequences of a pipeline leaking in a forest when no one is around highlight the desirability of leak detection systems in water distribution utilities as a whole. As the following experiences show, leak detection can have its entertaining side. On the other side of the coin, however, the consequences of not monitoring leaks can also trigger a tsunami of costs far beyond the expense of pipeline repair alone.

  • Green Energy And Decentralized Water Treatment For The Caribbean
    Green Energy And Decentralized Water Treatment For The Caribbean

    Among water treatment industry professionals, consensus is growing that small- to medium-scale decentralized desalination and wastewater treatment plants are the way forward in a water-stressed future. But governments continue to announce new water mega-infrastructure projects at an alarming rate. Because the public policy debate appears to have simply not caught up with current technology, many companies and NGOs with a focus on small- to medium-scale water treatment or renewable energy have begun to see the Caribbean as something of a new frontier.
