  • Integrated System Provides Temporary Bypass At Colorado Treatment Plant

    In Colorado, the project team for an expansion and renovation of a wastewater treatment plant was in need of a bypass system to move a peak flow of 128 million gallons per day. Wagner Rents, the rental arm of Wagner Equipment and Xylem’s Godwin and Flygt distributor in Colorado was named the bypass contractor for this portion of the job. Wagner Rents pump team worked with Xylem to design and install a temporary system to convey the full amount of flow. The solution that followed also provided the treatment plant with the ability to integrate the temporary bypass into its SCADA system and to log the data as if it was its own permanent pumping system.

  • GeoSpray® 49″ Brick Sewer Rehab In Los Angeles

    Los Angeles Sanitation collects, cleans, and recycles solid and liquid waste generated by residential, commercial and industrial users in the city of Los Angeles and surrounding communities. The system serves over four million residents. The Bureau of Engineering for the Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining the sewer and stormwater systems owned by the city. Over the last several decades, the city has worked to rehabilitate and replace much of its aging sanitary sewer system. As the progress continues, the city is now doing more work on the larger diameter piping structures in its system. These larger diameter rehabilitations are significantly more costly than the smaller diameter repairs and many of the systems employed by the city are significantly budget constrained.

The science of measuring and controlling variables is termed instrumentation. As the name suggests, the process involves using a wide variety of instruments. These are classified as any device that can measure amounts that are physically quantifiable. These instruments do not have to be extremely complex in design. For example, the ruler is an instrument to measure distance, and a simple thermometer measures temperature.
Instruments specific to petrochemical processing include platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s), P/I Converters, many types of level meters, chromatographs, and continuous gas analyzers. These instruments are essential to the day to day instrumentation at petrochemical plants, as it is impossible to gauge to the necessary extent by estimation alone. Human error is inevitable, but an instrument can easily be calibrated or replaced.
Now that you understand the definition of and tools used in instrumentation, you should also understand the necessity of it. Temperature and pressure meters serve to ensure that the environment stays safe for both the chemicals being processed and the employees of the plant. Heat is a very well-documented activator in chemical reactions. If the temperature rises to unusual levels, this could spark an undesired chemical reaction that could prove catastrophic. The flow meter must measure how much oil is leaving the refinery, as it is a very volatile substance. Analytical instruments, such as the chromatograph, analyze the chemical make-up of the refined oil. This allows for the opportunity to make sure that the chemical make-up is correct, giving evidence that the process was correctly completed at all stages of refinement.
