Choosing a Water Flow Meter Type That’s Right for You

In an age where almost everything is measured and tracked, queue in water flow meters to do just that. Imagine the piping in your home as water rushes to and fro the essential zones, how is the amount of water, the pressure of water, and so on measured and tracked? With a water flow meter!

The Importance of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) in Wastewater Treatment

Beyond the normal activities of consuming, bathing, and the natural world, we often overlook the quality of this liquid life. We’re talking about high-quality H2O, water that drives everything we do from athletics to making a morning cup of joe. We often expect high-quality water, never thinking twice about it, and inherently taking it for

How Does a Peristaltic Pump Work? An Explanatory Guide

What is a peristaltic pump? A peristaltic pump is a liquid pump that utilizes a pinch-and-roll mechanism along flexible tubing to push liquid forward or backward.  To be specific, a peristaltic pump uses positive displacement from compression and relaxation to create pressure differences much like our body does every day. Each time you swallow and

Water Measurements Explained: ORP vs pH

Clean water is an ever-growing concern from tap water to manufacturing to natural waterways. We can’t live without water, yet understanding the characteristics of clean versus unhealthy water flow swiftly past us in common day-to-day activities.  Two parameters of water quality that are most well known are pH and oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). These two measurements

Monitor Water Quality Using Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) Measurements

High water quality depends on many factors both visible and invisible to the human eye, mostly invisible, unfortunately. However, due to advances in sensor technology, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) provides an easy way to understand the sanitation level, and therefore cleanliness, of any water application.  Water quality is a spectrum that can be understood with more

Understanding the Difference: ORP vs Dissolved Oxygen (DO)

Oxidation and reduction potential (ORP) and dissolved oxygen (DO) levels play an important role in water quality for natural systems and water treatment facilities alike.  Even though both are important, the two characteristics and their crossover is not always well defined or understood. These concepts will be compared and discussed in this article as they

Understanding ORP Measurements for Chlorine in Pools

Chlorine and swimming pools are constantly lumped together in discussions around backyard pools, swim classes, or hotel stays. But what does chlorine actually do for swimming pools?  In this article, we will discuss the role that chlorine plays in swimming pools, water in general, sanitation level, and how it can be understood with an oxidation-reduction

How to Calibrate an ORP Meter

Water is often overlooked when poured from the sink or sprayed from the hose. Visibly, water can look extremely clear and still have many unknown chemicals floating around. To measure water quality, many are quick to jump to pH levels, dissolved oxygen, so on and so forth.  All measurements are great when identifying the overall
