Flow Metering IoT-Ready

The system manufacturer offers the NivuFlow devices including a mobile phone modem with worldwide approval. The manufacturer’s IoT concept allows the operators to transmit data automatically in combination with many options for visualisation and logging. Readings and system data as well as error messages or alarms can be transmitted directly via mobile networks. Due to this extension, NIVUS are able to provide faster service for devices. Remote maintenance, remote diagnostics and remote commissioning open new possibilities to reduce time-consuming journeys for service works to a minimum. By using NIVUS Connectivity, the Multiroam-SIM-Chip automatically uses the most powerful mobile network available. A benefit for operators is predictable costs since providers do not invoice roaming fees

What’s in our oceans?

What’s under the waves? So much of our planet is under water (oceans cover 71 per cent of the earth’s surface). While, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Centre reports the globe holds approximately 321,003,271 cubic miles of water. So, with so much water covering our planet, have you ever wondered what’s under the waves? Life – but not as we know it! We know that there are millions of different sea life species in the ocean, many still undiscovered. There are also around 4,000 species of coral reef fish found across the globe — that’s close to a quarter of all of the world’s marine fish species—though be aware that a millilitre of ocean water contains close to 1 million bacteria and 10 million viruses. Depths and sights … The earth’s

MSE Systems Bring in Landia Pumps and Mixers to Help Treat Potato Effluent

Following the successful installation two years ago of Landia Chopper Pumps and a Landia Aeration System, MSE Systems is set to install a further three units from Landia for one of the UK’s leading supplier of potatoes. During an upgrade to the customer’s potato processing factory, Chesterfield-based MSE Systems found that the addition of a high-efficiency Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) plant would improve the activated sludge process by reducing oxygen demand. To ensure that the plant could meet future needs, a new chemical addition system was introduced to remove suspended solids, free emulsified oils, grease and elevated residual phosphorus. For odour control, an 11kW Landia AirJet system was installed to mix, aerate and control odours of screened potato effluent in a balance tank. In
