Effective water quality monitoring is the key to environmental protection of watercourses and for reliable process control and wastewater treatment. Discharge consents under EPR regulations dictate that water quality monitoring is undertaken to ensure that consented parameters are below the consented concentrations. Traditionally this has been done using water quality sampling methods but increasingly automatic water quality measurement sensors linked to real-time telemetry is seen as the most reliable and...
Digital Pathology is an image-based information environment enabled by virtual microscopy. This involves imaging glass slides and saving and distributing their digital images for analysis, archiving and storage.
The virtual microscopy slides are:
•Scanned — using a microscope based scanning device that takes images of the whole slide via large scanning or stitching of smaller scans. This involves a motorized stage to scan the whole slide. Light source stability is important for scanning in order to prevent...
Protea can supply fixed workplace monitoring systems that can measure single or multi-points about the workplace. Specifically designed analytical systems can ensure detection limits down to ppb levels can be achieved for multiple gases with a single instrument. Controlling software can run automatically, providing instantaneous or time-weighted average readings.
The purpose of determining ethylene in the chlorination process is to minimize ethylene losses by feedback control of C2H4 / Cl2 ratio in the chlorination reactor. The on-line analyzer system uses selective C2H4 measurement by means of multi-wavelength infrared with automatic optical span possibility. For all other analytical solutions in the chlorination process.
The recorded death of fish in the river that flows out of the industrial zone of Scarlino has created the need of the installation of a biological alarm system. The decision was made to work with an automatic system, iTOXcontrol created by microLAN-The Netherlands represented in Italy by Ecotox Lds, which uses marine bacteria. The system compares the values of the light emission from these organisms at the entrance and exit of the canal, generating alarms in the presence of toxic substances.
Determining levels of CO and CO2 and their respective ratio in the oxychlorination reactor contributes to overall process efficiency. The on-line analyzer system uses a selective CO/CO2 measurement by means of multi-wavelength infrared with automatic optical span possibility.

In a pit water purification system it was necessary to detect the discharge volumes. The operator wanted a regular and automatic transmission of readings. On the selected measurement place no mains power connection was available. Due to the risk of vandalism, it was not planned to install a switching cabinet.
See the NIVUS solution for this measurement task here.
The EPR regulations have replaced the IPPC regulations and are effective from May 2009 for qualifying companies within the industrial sector and October 2009 within the water sector. They will progressively require industry to minimise waste, reduce product loss and implement improved process control. The legislation will require the operator to self monitor processes and discharges, to demonstrate effective control with particular emphasis on EPR compliance and prevention. The regulating Agency will operate a...
The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time.
According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain...
