As water engineers we know how challenging it can be working on projects using different units - constantly changing between imperial to metric or metric to imperial.

Our water unit converter tool was developed to save you time by allowing you to quickly create a wide range of water and wastewater related conversions specific to your treatment project needs. By creating a hub for water and wastewater unit conversion you can increase the efficiency of your engineering work – water & wastewater projects, treatment designs, unit conversions, and water engineering calculations.

The primary units used throughout the water industry are flux, length, concentration, flow, temperature, mass, mass flux, and mass ratio which are all included in this tool.

The mass calculations of any system that is closed to all exchanges of matter and energy must remain constant throughout time since the system's mass cannot vary, hence quantity cannot be added or subtracted. As a result, the amount of mass is preserved through time. The general rule of mass suggests that mass cannot be generated or destroyed, but it may be rearranged in space and the things linked with it can change shape. For that reason, calculating the mass units within a wastewater treatment plant is critical to monitor and ensure conversions that need to be made between units are done correctly. Mass units that are mainly used and included with this tool are kilograms (kg), pounds (lbs), UK tons (UKton), US tons (USton), tons (t), grams (g), milligrams (mg), and ounces (oz).

Due to the large number of formulae required to correctly translate equations between the imperial and metric systems, engineers in the water sector, in particular, will benefit from this translation tool. It can be difficult to ensure that data such as influent flows, membrane fluxes, hydraulic loading rates of specific civil structures (primary and secondary clarifiers), and process equipment (screens, retention sieves for MBBR, membrane for MBR, and so on) are exactly where they should be. With our conversion tool, the agony of converting units into actionable tasks in order to make treatment process adjustments more efficient has ended!

The Transcend tools can also assist you in configuring designs to accelerate the amount of time spent on drafting proposals. Make your next project a breeze with our free tools created by wastewater engineers for engineers like you!
