Instrument based control systems for clean water or wastewater

Date: 29th January 2020

Location: National Railway Museum, York


The use of instrumentation is becoming increasingly more important in the Water Industry as we don’t just use instrumentation for monitoring purposes but control of processes too. With the advent of the smart water industry there is a huge potential to use instrumentation and data-based control systems to make large efficiencies on both water & wastewater systems.
