Project provides assistance for utilities looking to boost understanding of biological filtration
The Water Research Foundation (WRF) is helping water utilities improve their understanding of monitoring and controlling biological filtration (BF) through a recently completed research project that resulted in a guidance manual that describes and evaluates current BF monitoring and control techniques.
The TRM-1 is a wide-range TDS monitor, able to measure 0 to 10,000 ppm with three different sensors. It is ideal for water filtration/purification systems that require three sensing points, such as RO/DI systems. Each sensor is ¼ in. in diameter. The monitor comes with three ¼-in. quick-connect T-fittings. It is battery powered, has automatic shutoff, automatic temperature compensation and an accuracy of ±2% (of the reading).
Analytical Measurements manufactures probes for use with pH and ORP instrumentation, as well as resistance temperature detectors for use with automatic temperature compensating controllers/recorders. All probes work with many instrument manufacturers, as long as a BNC-type connection is used. The company offers standard industrial probes, as well as higher temperature/pressure, flat surface, spear type and cyanide probes.
This wireless monitoring system continuously monitors water usage in real time. A self-contained monitor listens to the pulse of the water meter. Real-time data are sent wirelessly to a website portal for water consumption viewing by the month, day or hour. If a major leak occurs, the device sends alerts via computer or smartphone. Alerts can be customized for business hours, as well as after hours and weekends.
The V-SURE wireless remote monitoring system for VRTX cooling water treatment solutions provides operational feedback and alerts. The GSM phone modem interfaces with a programmable logic controller that automates operation while monitoring performance. The system can communicate with and monitor a VRTX system independent of network, and data are made available via a secure Web portal. If an alarm condition occurs, the system alerts personnel who can troubleshoot and repair many issues remotely.
The Prizma water analyzer and controller features automatic calibration and provides real-time online reports. The system is suited for use in private swimming pools and spas, ensuring sanitation and clear water. It works by applying electro-optic capabilities to accurately analyze test pads that automatically monitor water quality at regular intervals. A continuous indicator strip is run across a series of individual test sections, each providing analysis for a different chemical.
The UV Connect wireless logging device allows pool owners to remotely monitor the performance of UV systems. The logger plugs into any UV system and works with a complementary application to make data available on a smart phone or tablet. The app also is capable of monitoring other process equipment, such as pumps and filters. It provides information on system performance, alarm status, lamp running hours and operating parameters. Push notifications for alarm conditions also are available.
This microprocessor-based pH indicator-controller provides a complete monitoring and recording system for industrial wastewater. Two process controllers are provided to activate alarms, pumps, etc., based on preset pH or millivolt set points. The unit can be mounted with 1/8 DIN or in a NEMA 4X enclosure. The recorder can be configured for either a 24-hour or seven-day chart with 0 to 14 pH. The system can be provided complete with probe and buffer solutions to calibrate.
Phigenics to provide water quality monitoring to 33 U.S. Coast Guard aviation facilities
Phigenics LLC has won a water testing services contract for 33 U.S. Coast Guard aviation facilities. This contract was awarded by the Aviation Logistics Center, Airworthiness Sustainment Branch, which is at the center of all water testing programs for Coast Guard aircraft.
