More than a third of the world's drinking water is lost before it reaches consumers. Not only does this inefficiency affect utilities by increasing operational costs and failing to provide a satisfactory customer service — but it also has a huge impact on the environment.
The ECD Model X80 Universal Transmitter is a single- or dual-channel transmitter designed for the continuous measurement of pH, ORP, pION, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, conductivity or resistivity in a general-purpose industrial environment.
FLUID SYSTEMS' nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) product lines are suitable for the delivery of consistent, high-quality filtration, offering municipal and industrial clients a total treatment solution with re-use potential.
A number of laser optical on-site calibrations were conducted for bulk water flow meters in Queensland using a calibration technology developed by German company OPTOLUTION.
The SM4000 magnetic-inductive flow meter operates on Faraday's law of induction. Conductive media flow through a magnetic field and the voltage generated is proportional to the speed or flow rate. This voltage is tapped via electrodes and converted in the evaluation electronics.
The Victorian Government has announced that it will put communities at the centre of storm and recycled water management through new forums across the state.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the SMART NRG, a battery-operated water quality monitoring station that can be installed anywhere along the water distribution network.
Facing up to water security challenges and adopting strategies to allocate water amongst competing users in an economically efficient manner can drive Australia's water security.
Xylem has released the 5th generation HYDROVAR, an intelligent control system that adapts to system demands. The drive and motor control can reduce the energy consumption of a pump by as much as 70%, according to the company.
Hach's RTC (Real Time Control) solutions are complete off-the-shelf systems that adjust treatment processes in real time. Standardised RTC modules can be combined and configured to deliver a holistic water treatment optimisation solution, tailored to plant-specific requirements, which will improve compliance and reduce operating expenses.
Schneider Electric recently worked with WaterForce, a provider of irrigation solutions in New Zealand, to develop a cloud-based Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) mobile control solution. Built on Microsoft Azure and Azure IoT technologies, the system enables farmers to operate irrigation pivots with greater agility, efficiency and sustainability.
The Model L8 Flotect liquid level float switch features a leak-proof body and float constructed from tough, durable polyphenylene sulfide, which has good chemical resistance.
