Water Treatment Plant Challenge: Pumping out a Powerful Solution for Metro Vancouver

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 29, 2017 11:11:00 AM / by Rittal Enclosures posted in TS 8, Waste Water Managment

As the second largest secondary treatment facility in Canada, Metro Vancouver Regional District’s Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant (MV AIWWTP) in Delta, B.C., presently serves about 1.3 million people in 14 member municipalities in the Fraser Sewerage Area (FSA).

The pumping facility at the Annacis Island plant is a critical part of the infrastructure, as collection and conveyance systems transport the FSA wastewater to the plant. The three 1,200-horsepower influent pumps and four 684-horsepower trickling filter pumps have been in service for about two decades and were at their end-of-life stage. These large pumps regulate the level of raw sewage in the wet well, conveying it into the treatment plant. Should these fail during high flow situations, there are overflow gates, but these bypass raw wastewater into the Fraser River, which would lead to consequential fines and penalties due to its environmental impact. The trickling filter pumps power the flow of the partially treated waste over trickling filters for secondary treatment, which capture most of the bacteria before the final purification processes.

Understanding Edge Computing

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 10, 2017 11:35:00 AM / by Rittal Enclosures posted in IT Enclosures, Data Center Solutions, edge computing, IT, edge infrastructure

Edge Computing Defined

Edge computing houses data processing capability at or near the “edge” of a network. Usually, servers are contained in a micro data center, with as few as one or two enclosures. Data which is mission-critical, such as a system fail, is captured and available in real-time on site. Edge computing is valuable in capturing bandwidth intensive and latency sensitive data for analysis, lowering operating costs and improving energy efficiency. Lower priority data can be sent to the cloud or to a remote data center.

What Edge Computing Means for IT

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 8, 2017 10:36:24 AM / by Rittal Enclosures posted in IT Enclosures, edge computing, Cybersecurity, IT

Edge computing has risen to the forefront of information management in a very short time. Edge computing houses data processing capability at or near the “edge” of a network. The efficiency of this data management is well-documented. It is difficult to argue that accessing real time data for analysis is superior to later data retrieval. Latency of mission critical data is virtually eliminated. The decreased use of bandwidth and the elimination of data bottleneck to the main data center or cloud enhances productivity and cost savings.
