  • REVO-2 and the ATOM encoder - Case Study

    The REVO multi-sensor system is one of Renishaw's flagship products and enables CMM users to perform 5-axis measurement on a 3-axis co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). It measures 1000s of points/sec and operates at speeds up to 500 mm/s. As the head is much lighter and more dynamic than the CMM, it is able to quickly follow changes in the part geometry without introducing harmful ...

  • Water Treatment Plant: Benefits of Underwater Cameras

    Before fresh water can be made safe for human consumption it must go through a treatment process eliminating bacteria and any other elements deemed unsafe to drink. How does such a process occur and why is it relevant to us? We’ve written about the use of Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles and pipe crawler systems in storm water systems, sanitation pipes, and water storage basins. A ...

  • Water reuse through managed aquifer recharge (MAR): assessment of regulations/guidelines and case studies

    Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) with reclaimed water is an important water reuse application. As an intentional way of recharging water into aquifers, MAR can be used to address water shortages and contribute to sustainable water resources management practices. The establishment of a MAR system depends on the source of recharge water, the selection of a recharge method and site, the type of ...

  • An integrated model for simulating and diagnosing the water quality based on the system dynamics and Bayesian network

    An integrated model for simulating and diagnosing water quality based on the system dynamics and Bayesian network (BN) is presented in the paper. The research aims to connect water monitoring downstream with outlet management upstream in order to present an efficiency outlet management strategy. The integrated model was built from two components: the system dynamics were used to simulate the ...
