In order to improve water flow in a bend of a spillway chute using a guide wall, modeling experiments with or without a guide wall under conditions of three different bend axial radii, three chute bottom slopes and three flow rates were carried out in this study. Two indexes were calculated, which are the improved water surface uniformity and the reduced rate of water surface difference in concave and convex banks of the cross-section. The results show that: (1) setting a guide wall in a bend can improve water flow in the bend because it increased the water surface uniformity of the cross-section and reduced the water surface difference in the concave and convex banks; (2) the smaller the bend axial radius, the better the water surface improvement effect will be using a guide wall; (3) the steeper the bottom slope, the more cross-sections with less water surface difference; and (4) flow rates have a great influence on water surface improvement in the bend, and the guide wall can improve water flow obviously when the water depth in the starting section of the bend is lower than the height of the guide wall. This study has important implications in engineering design of guide walls.

Treating drinking water with 99% removal - Case Study
QED E-Z Tray®Air Stripper Treating Drinking Water with 99% Removal in Cedarburg, Wisconsin In October 2011, the Cedarburg, Wisconsin Light and Water Utility installed a QED E-Z Tray® (U.S. Patent Number 5,518,668) Air Stripper in a discreet addition to their existing production pump building. The E-Z Tray 72.6 handles a flow rate of 600 gpm and treats groundwater containing vinyl chloride that has been traced back to a nearby landfill. The influent into the Air Stripper is drinking water with 0.22...
Flow Rate Measurement in full Pipes using the Transit Time Method
Particularly in large diameters the relevance of water volume measurement is growing. The challenge with cooling water or fresh water processes is to generate accurate flow recordings or to document and to control individual consumptions and withdrawal quantities. Flow detection, however, particularly in large diameters is highly demanding. In such cases the transit time measurement thanks to its high flexibility as a reliable and cost-efficient measurement system is literally made for permanent flow metering. Sec...
Oil Well Production Water - Case Study
IntroductionClean Water Technology, Inc. (CWT) is a global water and wastewater treatment firm serving Clients worldwide. The Colombian based SAIDA S.A. (Soluciones Ambientales Integrales de La Amazonia “SAIDA”), provides wastewater treatment for several oil well processors in the area.

How To Put Your Building on a Water Diet in 2017
As you prepare for thenew year, why not commit your building to the same resolution as millions of American men and women: a diet! Every year, millions of gallons of water, one of our most precious resources, is wasted through undetected leaks, over irrigation and faulty equipment. Since most building managers and owners only check usage when the bill comes, your water usage is likely to make your wallet pretty lean as rates skyrocket around the country. It’s time to get your building into shape! Implementi...
