  • Water Level Measurements-Part 1

    Confused about which instrumentation to use in your water level monitoring system? In-Situ offers two categories of pressure sensors for water level measurements: absolute or non-vented sensors, and gauged or vented sensors. They look the same and both measure pressure and water level, but they have drastically different applications, outputs and accuracy. The absolute (or non-vented) water level ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Reliable silica monitoring supports power station efficiency

  • Desubmerge Your Submersible Pump

    A few decades ago, well, definitely not more than four, a contractor was introduced to electric powered submersible pumps. The crew’s first reaction was, “What! You’re going to throw that electric motor in the water? You’ve got to be crazy!” After a few weeks of getting comfortable with the subs, the whole crew was handling them like ...

  • Case study - Flowmeter troubleshooting at the township of North Glengarry

    The Problem... The forcemain meter at the pump station read five times higher than the open channel flowmeter at the lagoon 2 km away. The Township needed to determine which of the two flow meters was reading incorrectly. Troubleshooting Forcemain Flow... First step was to evaluate performance of the 12” magmeter at the sewage pump station. The cost ...

  • Case study - Bi-On Carb OX: Odor treatment in WWTPs. Case study SIMTEJO (Portugal)

    Avoiding problems associated with foul odors in and around collectors and waste water treatment plants is today one of the major focus points to avoid possible issues related to worker safety, as well as minimizing negative social discomforts caused by the foul odors. The main sources that generate foul odors in WWTPs occur at stages of anaerobiosis, where the lack of oxygen favours the ...

  • ‘Smart’ flood alleviation system protects Portsmouth

    In late 2014, Southern Water completed a major project to reduce the risk of sewer flooding in parts of Portsmouth and Southsea. Substantial works were undertaken to divert runoff and tidal ingress, and a ‘smart’ hydrometeorological monitoring system was installed to enable prompt diversion of excess water during periods of high rainfall. Sewer level monitoring is undertaken in ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Treating wastewater as a resource

    A number of UK landfill operators are turning wastewater into a resource by utilising OTT monitoring and control systems to manage the irrigation of Willow crops (for renewable energy generation) with pre-treated effluent. Background Leachate from landfill sites represents a significant potential environmental liability, extending long into the future after a landfill site has ...

  • Project profile - Ramah Pine Hill water system Ramah, New Mexico

    Background The Ramah Navajo Chapter owns and operates the Ramah Pine Hill water system located in Ramah, New Mexico. The water system is served by one well that provides drinking water for the community’s residents at a maximum of 130 gallons per minute (gpm) with an approximate arsenic concentration of 18 parts per billion (ppb) and iron concentration of 1.70 milligrams per liter ...

  • Ramah NM Project Profile 0409

The water system is served by one well that provides drinking water for the community’s residents at a maximum of 130 gallons per minute (gpm) with an approximate arsenic concentration of 18 parts per billion (ppb) and iron concentration of 1.70 milligrams per liter (mg/L). ...

  • Dunstable sewage treatment plant steps up to mono nov for a complete extraction package

    Underlining its ability to supply either individual products or complete packaged systems for this type of application, Mono also provided two screw extractor systems and a single screw conveyor to partner an existingunit. The original step screen units installed on the Dunstable plant’s inlet flow had proved to be inefficient and unreliable. The replacement Discreen units now screen the inflow, ...

  • Unique Chinese wetland park monitors water 24/7

    Project background The Deyang area in southwest China was struck hard by an earthquake in 2008. Since then, reconstruction has taken place with a tremendous speed and the urban population grew exponentially. Due to this urbanisation, the city’s water supply system can not meet its rapidly growing water demand. Currently, two-thirds of ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction An offshore worker ensures a vessel is safe to enter; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face common dangers, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited. A confined space ...

  • Tank terminal demonstrates the electrically operated solution for ESD Valves - case study

  • Gas detector communication technology for offshore oil and gas platforms

    In few applications is safety as important as on offshore oil and gas platforms. Explosive hazards from hydrocarbon gases and vapours are an ever-present risk, whilst toxic hydrogen sulphide gas and depleted oxygen environments can pose significant risks to personnel. Gas detectors are therefore essential to provide dependable early warning of gas hazards. Gas detectors are permanently installed ...
