Maintaining efficiency in wet chemical scrubbers has become one of the most important missions of current APC facilities due to urban growth and plant expansion/modernization projects as good stewards of the community. Systems often run above the 90% efficiency mark with the help of accurate make-up water control instruments. Continue reading “Sump Level Make-Up Water Controls in Wet Chemical Scrubbers”
Hi-Flow™ control valves are single seated, top or cage guided globe valves – probably the simplest, from a construction standpoint, yet most versatile control valve in use. The Hi-Flow™ valve can fit applications with a smaller size valve since the valve has a greater flow capacity than most conventional valves of the same size. Coupled with a high flow capacity, the Hi-Flow™ valve maintains a wide rangeability of 50:1 to ensure precise control. Continue reading “Product Highlight: Hi-Flow™ Control Valves”
Question: I am choosing an insertion level switch to help me monitor levels in a tank. What are the main differences between the products in the Flotect® switch family? Continue reading “Ask the Expert – What are the differences between the products in the Flotect® switch family?”
Insertion flowmeters provide a great alternative to inline flowmeters because they are typically less expensive and easier to install than inline meters. But how do you know which type of insertion meter to choose?
There are two primary types of insertion flowmeters: mechanical and non-mechanical. It’s vital to understand the application and benefits of each type of meter, to ensure the best instrumentation solution for your application. Continue reading “Mechanical vs. Non-Mechanical Flowmeters”
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 280 million people get their drinking water from a community water system. Drinking water supplies in the United States are among the safest in the world, but even these water sources can become contaminated. Before fresh water can be considered potable, it must be treated to be made safe for drinking. Systems are set in place to ensure ongoing water quality, which then allows this treated water to be sent through water pipes and into our homes. Continue reading “How is Water Treated for Homes?”
