  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Why are waste operations installing on-board scales?

    Given the rising cost of operating waste collection vehicles, it is becoming more important to evaluate the use of on-board weighing systems to reduce operating costs, meet new safety standards and improve fleet efficiency. Electronic on-board scales are not new. They were introduced more than 30 years ago into trucking applications where monitoring gross vehicle or payload weight was ...

  • Eco-friendly Scalewatcher tackles scale in school building

    A school in Texas is benefiting from reduced salt and chemical usage following the installation of the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher® from Scalewatcher North America.  The Scalewatcher system has proved so successful that the school authorities are proposing to install units in every building which will save the school authority thousands of dollars a year in ...

  • An assessment of the checkpoint bioassay concept for full scale wastewater UV reactor validation

    In an effort to help policy makers and manufacturers understand the impact of parameter uncertainties on UV reactor performance, a numerical bioassay model was developed by integrating a UV reactor model based on computational fluid dynamics with a Monte Carlo model developed to account for parameter uncertainty. For the model implemented, it was determined that reactor performance uncertainty ...

  • Stevens Equipment Records Historical Information During Tsunami

    One of the longest lived products in water resource monitoring has been the Stevens’ chart recorder. In fact, the chart recorder, originally invented by Stevens’ founder and namesake J.C. Stevens in 1911, is the product that established Stevens’ leadership in the water monitoring business.  It’s no surprise then that some of these chart recorders have had long service lives and have recorded ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • RO monitors and Controllers: pros and cons

    A look at a range of devices for watching TDS. One major question a potential customer may ask before they purchase a point-of-use/point-of-entry (POU/POE) water treatment system is, “How often will I need to change the filter?” Maintenance and service are directly related to two of their major concerns: money and health. People don’t want to spend money unnecessarily, yet they ...

  • Monitoring pH and ORP in a SHARON reactor

    This paper analyses the valuable information provided by the on-line measurements of pH and oxidation reduction potential (ORP) in a continuous single high ammonia removal over nitrite (SHARON) reactor. A laboratory-scale SHARON reactor equipped with pH, ORP, electric conductivity and dissolved oxygen (DO) probes has been operated for more than one year. Nitrogen removal over nitrite has been ...

  • A sewer process model as planning and management tool – hydrogen sulfide simulation at catchment scale

    The collection system of a major city at the Persian Gulf was simulated for bulk water hydrogen sulfide and the release of sewer gas to the urban atmosphere. Geometry data on 870 km of sanitary sewer and data on dry weather flow entering all nodes in the catchment was exported from a Mike Urban database and imported to the sewer process model WATS. The process model then routed sewage and sewer ...

  • Construction and Civil Infrastructures Monitoring Systems

    Civil infrastructures are usually monitored through its whole life cycle. SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) technologies enable the estimation of the structural state and detection of structural change that affects the performance of a structure. Two discriminating factors in SHM are the time-scale of the change (how quickly the state changes) and the severity of the change. These factors ...
