  • Continuous Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters

    Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but the largest source is from agricultural fertilizer runoff . Other sources include wastewater treatment discharge, septic systems, and from pet waste. Nitrate is highly soluble in water and therefore readily leaches into water sources, whereas other human associated pollutants, such as phosphates and ammonia, are not transported as easily. This ability to be quickly transported into ground and natural waters such as drinking water wells, aquifers, reservoirs, lakes, and streams, coupled with its health and environmental implications make nitrate pollution and monitoring of major concern.

    Surface Water Quality Testing for the Environmental Monitoring Industry

    Aquaread stock a wide range of testing equipment designed to track a number of parameters and water quality testing measures. These can be used in many different bodies of water, including rivers, lakes, streams and seawater. The advantages of tracking water quality and testing for numerous parameters means that it is easier to notice changes which could cause damage to aquatic ecosystems. Early detection not only helps with monitoring water quality, but also helps to put mitigating measures in place. We have a wide range of parameters, although the most popular of these allow for surface water testing, pH, temperature, electrical conductivity and measuring levels of dissolved oxygen. These are standard measurements included in most standard Aquaprobes, although if you require more specific parameter testing then there are a number of additional parameters which can be added onto to the base Aquaprobe to compensate this.

  • Independent particle characterization services for environmental industries

    Particle size, particle concentration and other physical characterization analyses are critical to many environmental applications. Regulatory agencies in the environmental sphere demand strict compliance to standards and discharge regulations. Physical testing of samples for parameters such as particle size and concentration can give insight to the process control engineer on how effective and compliant a discharge handling system is operating. Particulate loading from both air emissions and waste water discharge are monitored in many industry sectors and PTL testing provides valuable supporting data in this monitoring process.

  • Fire Danger Rating / Forecasting

    For various reasons, including the changing global climate, wildfires are getting bigger, more destructive and more expensive. Effective, consistent and reliable detection of climate parameters is the key to preventing wildfires and managing the impact they have. Our equipment resides for decades in solitary confinement generally in very remote areas (often at the tops of mountains or deep within a national forest), constantly measuring and recording weather data. Once per hour, this data is transmitted back to government agencies who will analyze and use it to make decisions critical to the safety of the public. In the United States, FTS works closely with the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The center’s mission is the complex interagency coordination of wildland firefighting resources for the country. One of the resources is the network of remote automated weather stations (RAWS), the vast majority of which are supplied by FTS.

    Fence-line Monitoring

    The OPSIS open-path monitoring system is an excellent tool for monitoring the air quality, fugitive emissions and gas leaks at industrial sites. By arranging monitoring paths strategically at locations outside the borderline of an industrial area, fugitive emissions and gas leaks will effectively be detected. By combining the measured gas data with meteorological parameters information such as where the pollution sources are located and the strength of the emissions can be calculated, using the EnviMan software.

    Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Indoor Air Quality

    Introduction: Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. Carbon dioxide is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. Carbon dioxide production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks.

  • Monitoring industrial trade discharge for wastewater treatement industry

    Industry has had to respond to the requirements of progressive environmental legislation such as the Urban Waste Water Directive, IPC, IPPC and now the EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations). As successive legislation becomes more stringent, discharge consents have been progressively tightened, and the need for self-regulation has become more important. As a consequence, on-line instrumentation has been installed throughout waste-water industry to continuously to provide trade discharge monitoring and perform continuous water analysis for key consent parameters.

  • Percent Aromatics in Gasoline #3008

    The aromatic content of gasoline determines many of its combustion properties. Since it also impacts the environmental characteristics of the fuel it is desirable to have accurate measurements of this parameter. The traditional analytical method for measuring aromatics is either gas chromatography (GC) or an older method entitled fluorescent indicator adsorption (FIA), both of which are time and labor intensive. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of % aromatics in fuel products using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.

  • Water measurement systems & sensors for water quality monitoring

    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 timely means of ensuring that treatment processes are operating efficiently and that EPR compliance is maintained.

  • Radionuclide Monitoring for Nuclear Power Plants

    The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides. A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits. Ecotech`s MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis. The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.
