Effective coagulation control is a vital step in ensuring the safety of potable water. Monitoring the efficiency of the coagulation process enables operators to ensure the correct dosing of coagulants and flocculants and also provides an added safeguard against the risk of waterborne diseases, in particular cryptosporidiosis. Julian Edwards of ABB Measurement Products UK will explain the importance of taking an holistic approach to coagulation control, looking beyond just the immediate process itself. In particular, he will introduce a checklist that operators should follow, detailing key steps including: - Knowing the initial quality of the raw water coming into the plant - Understanding your organic levels - Understanding your turbidity levels - Understanding your pH levels The presentation will be ideal for anyone with responsibility for specifying or operating raw water treatment processes on potable water treatment plant. Delegates to the presentation will learn about: - How to improve the efficiency and accuracy of their coagulation control processes - How factors such as dissolved organics, turbidity and pH levels can affect the coagulation process - How the effects of these factors can be mitigated by multiple-parameter monitoring during the coagulation process - The technologies available for effective coagulation control at all stages of the treatment process, including pre- and post-treatment - Advice on the service and support available from companies such as ABB to help operators maximise the efficiency of their water treatment processes

Medium voltage drives improve life cycle costs at Pumping Station

The first UK installation of a new type of medium voltage AC drive has been commissioned at Yorkshire Water's Blackburn Meadows Wastewater Treatment Works in Sheffield. Six ACS 2000 drives from ABB have replaced a DC drive system used to control a set of pumps. The multi-pump arrangement is used to transfer wastewater 25 metres below ground to the head of the treatment works. Medium voltage drives were selected instead of low voltage drives due to the long cable lengths and overall project costs including the electrical distribution system, variable-speed drives and motors.

ABB software cuts maintenance costs for Severn Trent Water - ABB UK - Drives

ABB's anti-jamming software is helping Severn Trent Water save up to 2,400 a week on pump maintenance at its Worcester sewage treatment works. A module of ABB's Intelligent Pump Control software, the Anti-Jam software performs a number of cleaning cycles every time the pump starts, each cycle consist of a series of rapid ramp ups in both forward and reverse directions. Taking one to two minutes to complete, the cleaning cycle removes the debris from around the pump volute, preventing it from entering the pump and blocking it when the pump ramps up from zero to its normal operating speed.
