  • Top 8 things to check when maintaining a Pressure Reducing Valve

    Like every other piece of mechanical equipment we use, a control valve does require some maintenance. As budgets are stretched and time is tight, it can be tempting to ignore checking on valves that are often located in underground vaults and give years of operation without complaint, but eventually like everything else, they will fail. This article looks at 8 simple steps that if undertaken ...

  • Top 10 Valve Considerations for Pressure Management Zones/DMA’s

    For basic pressure management or more advanced modulating pressure management, water suppliers create a network of District Metered Areas (DMA’s) or smaller, more manageable pressure management zones. The DMA or pressure zone gives the ability to measure flow and control pressure, when a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) ...

  • How can I measure Salt in food?

    Sodium is a mineral required by the body for normal functions, but excessive intake can cause high blood pressure and hypertension. This has lead governments and regulatory bodies to focus on monitoring the levels of salt in foods in order to reduce the risk of these health affects. Canned foods are of particular concern as these often contain relatively high levels of salt. ...

  • Case study - City of Sault Ste. Marie - Pressure Monitoring

    The condition assessment project consisted of a Sahara pipeline inspection to detect any leaks or pockets of trapped gas on the lines, as well as a period of pressure transient monitoring on each pipeline to check for any sudden peaks or drops in the pressures which could be damaging to the lines. Service: Sahara Transient Pressure Monitoring Client: City of Sault Ste. Marie Type of ...

  • LinkBus RIMS case study

    For a variety of reasons, decreasing resources are causing plant operators in the process and utility industries to look for more efficient ways of monitoring and servicing their instrumentation. The analyzer maintenance department may have been reduced in size, merged with another department or perhaps no longer exists at all, and reassignments and relocation of staff can lead to a loss of ...

  • Wastewater Level Measurement Techniques

    Level monitoring and control is a fundamental requirement in any wastewater treatment process. You will find level instrumentation installed at even the simplest treatment plants for pump control, chemical storage tanks and process level controls or alarms. Operators have only limited or emergency control over treatment plant influent, so level controls and instrumentation play an important role ...

  • Assessment of swimmer behaviors on pool water ingestion

    Enteric pathogens in pool water can be unintentionally ingested during swimming, increasing the likelihood of acute gastrointestinal illness (AGI). AGI cases in outbreaks are more likely to submerge heads than non-cases, but an association is unknown since outbreak data are self-reported and prone to bias. In the present study, head submersion frequency and duration were observed and analyzed ...

  • How to boost the performance of Pressure Reducing Valves without breaking the budget.

    Pressure Management has become a very useful tool around the world for controlling leakage in piping networks. This has primarily been achieved by utilities forming DMA’s (District metered Areas) and pressure zones in their systems. Typically, pressure is managed by utilizing a pressure reducing valve that can either have a single fixed pressure reducing pilot set point or pressure flow ...

  • Stop metal losses in processes with Sulphide, Cyanide, Ammonia and Pressure Fluctuations

    Abstract Losses of metal are often traced to incorrect pH/ORP signals in floatation, leaching, extraction, electrolysis, and precipitation processes, aggravated by pressure changes. IC Controls a Canadian mining sensor manufacturer developed a new superior pH/ORP sensor that stops metal losses, reduces environmental footprint and contributes to sustainability. The cause of incorrect pH/ORP ...

  • Frequency pressure regulation in water supply systems

    In water supply systems, pressure management in most cases is proven to be the most cost-effective activity related to water loss control. As an advanced method of pressure control, it is possible to use variable frequency drives for centrifugal pump control. Pressure regulation can be performed with constant pressure or with proportional pressure control. The application of proportional ...

  • A new algorithm for real-time pressure control in water distribution networks

    This paper presents a new logic algorithm for real-time control of regulation valves in water distribution networks. This method entails identifying in real time the appropriate closure setting of regulation valves in order to reach and keep the desired piezometric height at the control node(s), by making use of measurements concerning both the piezometric height at the control node(s) and the ...
