Conductivity Monitoring for Reverse Osmosis

By |Conductivity, Drinking Water|

When running reverse osmosis (RO), operational efficiency is paramount. The comparison between the rate of water production and applied energy determines the cost of the water produced. Taking the system offline to conduct routine cleaning and maintenance can increase production rates and efficiency or extend membrane lifetime. However, spending extra effort to monitor membrane integrity [...]

Disinfection Methods for Bottled Beverage Production

By |Food & Beverage|

Bottled beverages, whether it’s drinking water or soft drinks, always start with clean, pure water. Because of variability in the taste of municipal drinking water, bottling plants treat water on-site to ensure quality of the final product. All water is disinfected prior to contact with plant equipment, and the equipment itself is disinfected. The water [...]

Measuring Soil pH for Plants and Gardens

By |Food & Beverage, pH|

Soil content and quality is a key factor of crop health. Physically, soil material and density affects water infiltration and retention. Chemically, pH of soil affects nutrient availability and uptake. Biologically, enzyme content and bacterial content relate to the ability of soil to recycle nutrients and resist disturbance. While some soil characteristics are permanent qualities [...]

How pH Monitoring Can Improve Print and Color Quality of Water-Based Ink

By |pH, Products|

Water based inks for printing have gained traction as an environmentally friendly alternative printing ink. Instead of emitting volatilized chemical solvents, water evaporates from ink leaving behind pigments. Use of water-based inks has been limited due to compatibility with substrate materials, but they are successfully used in a number of applications including printing on paper, [...]

Water Reuse for Papermaking White Water

By |pH, Pulp and Paper|

In the papermaking process, 99% of water is removed from paper pulp slurry to reveal the 1% of material that comprises paper. As such, the process is extremely water intensive; however, there is a large potential for water reuse. Maximizing reuse of the waste water—termed white water—serves both economical and environmental bottom lines. With only [...]

Pasteurized Equivalent Water using UV Disinfection

By |Agriculture and Farming|

Cow Water Processing Ultraviolet disinfection is permitted within milk production facilities and stipulations are provided by the FDA under the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO). One of the ways in which UV may be used in the dairy industry is in the creation of pasteurized equivalent water. The pasteurized product water reduces water consumption from external [...]
