  • Equipment purchasing and leasing

    PURCHASING (or leasing) equipment for use in manufacturing compost (and/or soil products) can be one of the riskiest decisions compost managers must make. The obvious risks of equipment acquisition (i.e. paying too much, higher than expected operating costs, not having the cash flow to cover payments, etc.) are augmented by risks such as machines not able to keep up with the increased materials ...

  • A Dutch first in the polder - Water Board Zuiderzeeland measures flow rates to achieve sustainability

    The Dutch province of Flevoland lies metres below sea-level. That’s why rain and seepage need to be removed from the polder, some 6 metres up. And that’s the reason Flevoland is drained continuously by seven huge pumping stations. The quantity of energy involved in this is as great as the energy consumption of 4,000 households. Water Board Zuiderzeeland has launched the ‘Energy ...

  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • Non-contacting Ultrasonic Pumping Station Flow Measurement Saves Money for Dwr Cymru Welsh Water

    Dwr Cymru Welsh Water has benefitted from the unique 'Pumped Volume' feature built into Pulsar's Quantum 2 Pump Station Controller; identifying a flow problem within a pumping station network without the need for expensive Magflow meters. Once the issue was resolved, pumped volume through one of the stations was reduced by 88% , ...

  • Discharge Measurements In Low Flow Conditions With ADC p t echnology – First Experiences In Nepal

    Low flows prevail during about nine months of the year in Himalayan rivers as a result of the influence of the monsoon climate. They account for a large portion of the annual water balance and accurate information about these flows is therefore critical for water resources planning, development, management and hydropower design. Issues that occur with the neighbouring country India are often ...

  • Fearless flow back - treating completion fluids & acid flow backs

    An oil company completed a well and CETCO Oilfield Services was there to treat the flow back fluids. During the flow back, it was necessary for the oil company to continue normal drilling operations. Deck space on the structure was at a premium for the oil company, who simultaneously continued drilling while flow back fluids were being treated. CETCO Oilfield Services’ proven technology and ...

  • Grounding equipment can prevent costly repairs

    Every remote environmental monitoring station should include a plan for an Earth Ground. All sensors, loggers and telemetry devices should be bonded, or connected, to the Earth Ground in order to protect instrument circuitry from damage due to changes in electric potential. Electric potential is defined as the difference in electrical energy between two points and is typically measured in volts ...

  • Design and Evaluation of a Flow Pump System for Column Testing

    The design of the equipment components of a flow pump system for the measurement of solute (effluent) breakthrough curves from soil columns is described. In addition, the performance of the system in terms of the effects of equipment components and temperature on measured differential pressure fluctuations across soil specimens is illustrated. The flow pump for the system provides continuous flow ...
