Certain companies in the water and wastewater industry are veritable trailblazers, forging ahead and sharing their expertise with others in an effort to help them stay current with new trends and technologies and do their jobs more efficiently. Our new Global Thought Leader Series will feature a collection of white papers and related videos from these innovators, giving you free and easy access to a bank of useful knowledge.




How To Choose A Flow Meter

The amount of flow measurement instrumentation available on the market today is mind boggling. Making the decision on what technology to use can be daunting, and many experienced plant personnel either use what they are comfortable with or count on their supplier (sales person) to help them out with different technologies. A new white paper from KROHNE explores some questions to ask yourself at the beginning of the decision-making process that could lead you down the path to successfully choosing measurement devices.








Translating Data into Action to Improve Utility Operations

Today’s water utilities are faced with ever increasing pressures – on their water supply, their efficiency, their workforce, their infrastructure, and their bottom line. However, even if the needs felt by utilities are common, your utility’s solution must be tailored to meet your needs. It must improve your customer service and your customers' experiences.

This white paper explores how, by taking advantage of the capabilities of today’s AMR (automatic meter reading) and AMI (advanced metering infrastructure) systems, your water utility can better manage myriads of data, optimize your operations and resources, connect all departments simultaneously as a smart water network, and protect your existing asset investments while expanding for the future. The right AMR/AMI system will not just give you information, but will make sense of it so that your utility can take action.
