SOILMOISTURE
Chameleon is an accurate, affordable, and fully automated laboratory Darcy system for measuring soil-core saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat). Chameleon is capable of performing Ksat measurement according to Falling-Head Method and also Constant-Head Method procedures. Thanks to Monitor Precision Pressure Transducer, and Chameleon Software Application, both measurement methods are fully automated. Up

Guest Commentary: Level Control Valves

AS AUTOMATION AND COMPUTER CONTROL took a foothold in the operation and control of reservoirs and elevated water tanks, the industry moved the valve control from mechanical Automatic Control Valves (ACV) to Actuated Butterfly and Ball Valves. The primary reason being that actuators can be controlled by SCADA systems, which

Accomplish More With Less

RISING POWER PRICES, NEW environmental regulations, and budget constraints are prompting many utilities—and large industrial users of water—to start looking at the Internet of Things (IoT). By fine-tuning existing processes or leveraging predictive analytics, large water consumers are finding ways to reduce their costs and carbon footprints without major retrofits

Editor’s Comments: Odes to Common Things

ONE OF THE BOOKS that I keep on my bedside table is a collection of poems called Odes to Common Things. In it, poet Pablo Neruda writes about ordinary objects often taken for granted. In “Ode to my Socks,” the poet outlines the fundamentals of comfort. He analyses a universe

Pump System Longevity and Extreme Operating Regimes

Pump System Longevity and Extreme Operating Regimes

A pump is a mechanism that utilizes mechanical force to overcome distance, elevation, and friction to move water or another liquid through a conduit to a point where it can be discharged, stored, or utilized. Like all mechanical devices, pumps can wear out or break over time. A pump’s operational
