Plant Fine Tunes Filtration Performance with On-Line W

Because particle counting is a more sensitive measurement than turbidity measurement, liquid-borne particle counting is playing an increasing role in potable water treatment. At San Francisco’s Harry Tracy Filter Plant, operators are using a water particle counter to fine-tune filter operations. Based on the successful performance of its online unit, plant management is planning to fine-tune filter runtimes even further by installing additional particle counters to monitor raw water influent as well as individual filter and combined filter effluent particle counts.

Desalination of Seawater Helps Meet Fresh Water Demand

Three French companies are meeting the water demands of large populations through the use of seawater desalination.Distillation and reverse osmosis are two competing techniques in the desalination of seawater. While each method has pros and cons, both provide a vital service in making seawater drinkable. Three French water companies (Saur, Degremont and Sidem) are working to improve the quality of fresh water created by both these methods and have invested heavily in the Mediterranean and Middle East markets with these technologies.
