Plutoshift APM Brings Direct Financial Impact To The Process…
Companies in the process industry today are expected to generate more revenue using fewer resources and without buying new assets. There’s greater pressure than ever to be efficient and nimble, worsened by the potential of a global trade war. Manufacturers have questioned if artificial intelligence (AI) could be cost-effectively harnessed to transform the industry like it promises for so many others. AI is only as good as the outcomes it supports, so our team’s biggest priority is to make it…

Influent Flow Forecasting Made Easy
Like the wastewater industry, most food and beverage manufacturing facilities are equipped with massive data systems to monitor and optimize the wide range of operations. These similarly regulated industries are increasingly adopting Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) into their processes to better manage systems and procedures. Though many water industry professionals recognize the potential of A.I., the public health implications of delivering top-quality wastewater in addition to aged production infrastructure, municipal operators and engineers have not yet enjoyed the same benefits of…

Predict Tomorrow’s Influent Flow With Today’s Data
Wastewater plant operations make important operational decisions based on the influent flow rate to the plant, and despite the ample availability of sensors, there is no accurate industry standard for predicting influent flow rate to the plant. Knowing the performance of a collection system is difficult because there are few industry-recognized benchmarks on what "performance" is and how it should be determined. Performance of sewer collection systems are often simply educated guesses. Quantifying the areas of highest inflow and infiltration…

Four-Pronged Strategy For Asset Management In Water
When you look at the water treatment facilities, assets are very critical to their operations. These assets can be pumps, pipes, evaporators, chlorinators, and so on. Most of the inefficiencies like water leakage, monetary losses, or compliance related fines can be directly attributed to assets' performance. So why don't water facilities just replace the assets when they go down in efficiency? One of the biggest problems here is that assets are very expensive. Replacing them is not an option until…
