3 Steps to Infrastructure Security and Resiliency

November is Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month. In this blog post, we’ll look into what security and resiliency really mean for critical infrastructures such as the energy sector, water monitoring systems, and emergency services. ...


Reliable Water Quality Monitoring with Integrated Conductivity Sensors in Water Treatment Systems

On-line conductivity measurement of mineral contamination in water allows reliable and inexpensive monitoring of water quality through the various stages of treatment. In comparison to having to install different analog sensors to cover the total measuring range, a single digital conductivity sensor with integrated measuring circuit can measure from ultrapure to brackish water. ...


How can accurate pH measurement prevent power plant corrosion?

Control the corrosion environment with effective pH monitoring and the regulation of dissolved oxygen. ...


Minimize Downtime and Increase Productivity

Planned or unplanned, when your plant is offline, you want to be fully operational as soon as possible. How you plan for outages of all types can help minimize downtime and risks to safety and your bottom line. Backed by more than 1,500 MW in backup power generation and the largest traditional and specialized equipment fleet ...


Predictive Approach to Resin Exhaustion Monitoring

A unique deionization capacity monitoring algorithm monitors the exchange capacity of deionization systems and accurately predicts resin exhaustion before leak or breakthrough, regardless of water quality. ...


Albert: The Smart Networking Monitoring Solution for Utilities

Most network monitoring solutions are now offering next-generation threat detection methods that use machine learning to reduce false positives and detect anomaly network traffic. Albert is a passive IDS offered by CIS as a low cost and very effective network monitoring service for which threat detection is based on threat signatures. ...

pH and CO2 measurement are central to efficient power plant cycle chemistry. Advanced process analytics instruments can provide accurate, calculated pH and CO2 determination from three simple conductivity measurements. ...


Reduce boiler corrosion and chemical costs with accurate pH measurement.

Appropriate and accurate pH chemical dosing into a power plant's water cycle is essential to minimizing waste of chemicals and boiler corrosion. Precise measurement can save pH chemical dosing costs, help reduce corrosion, and maximize personnel safety. ...


Optimizing Alarm Management in Power Plants

Automated alarm systems have been standard in power plants for decades. Their driving philosophy is to provide operators with as much feedback as possible to make informed decisions. But how to validate which of the alarms in the power plant is the most critical one and needs the intermediate actions to be taken? Check it now! ...


4 Ways Network Monitoring Keeps Utilities Safe

It’s no secret that people are concerned about the security of the U.S. power grid. Cyber criminals are always looking to exploit weaknesses in systems and networks. And unless you’re looking for malicious activity, you may not even know that your networks have been breached. Network monitoring can be used to detect unusual behavior and provide ...
