  • Optimal use of chlorine in water distribution networks based on specific locations of booster chlorination: analyzing conditions in Mexico

    Water distribution networks (WDNs) could present problems of pathogen intrusion that affect the health of consumers. One solution to diminish this risk is to add more disinfectant to the water at the drinking water treatment plant (DWTP). However, this increases the cost of water treatment and may also cause the formation of trihalomethanes. Mexico has the largest bottled water market in the ...

  • Long-life Oil Pumps – Ditlev Reefer

    After 25 years, it was finally time to replace the old ROTAN pumps. They say that on average, a pump’s life is about 10 – 15 years if you overhaul and maintain the pump properly, but in the case of the pumps used back in 1990 when Chartworld Shipping Corporation, Greece, built the cargo ship Ditlev Reefer, the pump life was 25 years. DESMI has a long history of supplying ...

  • A deterministic approach for optimization of booster disinfection placement and operation for a water distribution system in Beijing

    Previous studies on booster disinfection optimization were commonly based on ‘blank networks’, neglecting the impact of existing disinfection facilities, which could result in misleading solutions. To overcome this limitation, a method, which incorporates the existing disinfection facilities, is developed and demonstrated in this study. A particle backtracking algorithm, which ...

  • Losing system pressure - positive displacement pumps

    In a positive displacement pump, flow is directly related to RPM and pressure by the restriction of the flow in the discharge line. Once the system pressure is set, any change in flow will result in a change in pressure. These changes in flow can occur from certain conditions in the pump inlet line, the pump itself, the pump drive or in the pump discharge line. Pump Inlet The ...
