The process of monitoring water and steam quality in industrial facilities like power plants and paper mills is often very complex and requires much expertise. However, maintaining these instruments can be an even bigger challenge. If you are struggling with instruments that are too complicated to maintain, Waltron’s water and steam quality monitoring instruments might be just what you need to simplify your maintenance.
Fixed gas detectors play a critical role in safeguarding people, places, and the planet against potentially life-threatening gases in environments ranging from high value industrial complexes to laboratories and hazardous confined spaces. However, to ensure their accuracy and reliability, regular calibration is an indispensable practice.
Calibration is usually a two-step procedure – the zero and the span. In the first step, the sensor is zeroed using ambient air after confirming that the target gas is not present or by using a suitable gas from a cylinder. The second step is to expose the instrument to the calibration gas that contains a known concentration of the target gas the sensor is designed to measure. The readings are then adjusted to match these values.

- A major pulp and paper company had a dated, inefficient process for monitoring and recording daily effluent water rates.
- A necessary task in order to maintain state regulations, the company needed help optimizing this process to save time, balance employee workload, and help scale company operations.
- Through Moore Industries’ system analysis and installation upgrade, the plant easily met all of these needs while also reducing operating costs and saving time.
Case Study Summary
In order to maintain compliance with state regulations, a major pulp and paper company was required to continuously monitor and record daily effluent water rates at their plant.
Fulfillment of this task was met by sending an employee from their main control site to a remotely located pond three times a day to manually record water levels—the process was inefficient, time-consuming and didn’t provide them with real-time data.
Frustrated by the lack of accurate results, inefficiency of their current process and added employee workload, the paper plant reached out to Moore Industries for a modern process solution.
Upon analysis of their existing systems, an installation and upgrade was performed which allowed them to digitally and wirelessly monitor their water levels.
A bridle is a vertical pipe connected to the side of a storage tank or process vessel, typically with side/side or side/bottom connections. Because the fluid inside the bridle will rise and fall equally with the level of fluid inside the tank or vessel, the bridle has been adapted for level measurement on a broad scale.

This month we explore the concept of flashpoints and their significance in fire safety. A flashpoint refers to the temperature at which a flammable substance releases sufficient vapor to ignite when exposed to an external source of ignition, such as a spark. It serves as a crucial factor in determining the fire hazard potential of various liquids.
Although there are many different hydrogen production types including black, pink, turquoise, and yellow, the most common type is from “grey” sources (95%). The steam/methane reforming process is used to convert natural gas or methane into hydrogen. A pollutant by-product of this process is CO2.
