Being able to accurately and consistently measure the water treatment process variable is a crucial part of automatic control and water quality parameters data for small water systems. The basic principles and operational considerations of commonly used process measurement devices will be covered from an operator's perspective.
- Principles of flow measurement and common flow sensors, pressure measurement and common pressure sensors, level measurement and common level sensors, turbidimeters, particle counters, pH meters, chlorine meters, streaming current monitors
- Principles of sensor maintenance, the basic sensor maintenance considerations and the principles of sensor calibration
- Which data points are used to automatically control the system, SCADA and Single point control and
- The importance and methods of data recording, reporting and data management
