Water monitoring involves many different activitites, from ensuring the quality of surface or underground water, both for human beings and animal life, to the monitoring of a country’s water infrastructure. Wireless sensor networks are becoming increasingly popular in this area and ADVANTICSYS has already explored its use for many novel applications.
Easily and accurately assess the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of any aquatic system. From spot sampling to long-term remote monitoring, In-Situ has the right equipment for your surface water quality monitoring project.
Problem: Trace contamination in ultrapure water (UPW) can have detrimental effects on a manufacturing process in Semiconductor, Power Generation and Pharmaceutical industries. Onsite treatment is conducted to further remove trace impurities from source water.
Boost operational efficiency, prevent fracking water contamination and ensure regulatory compliance at your shale oil and gas site. In-Situ’s EPA-approved fracking water quality technologies help you achieve best practices at lower cost, protecting your company and water resources.
In-Situ’s Virtual HERMIT Aquifer Testing Kit lets you monitor an entire well field with one system. Simultaneously configure, start, view, step, or stop all connected data loggers, or set up equipment to run tests at a pre-set time. Aquifer testing has never been so easy, simplifying data collection even at remote sites. Plus, In-Situ’s professional-grade water level monitoring loggers ensure you get the most accurate data possible.
Naturally occurring organics in raw water are typically removed with chemicals. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers in the water treatment system can alert technicians when generic organic material is present but cannot differentiate between natural organics, such as algae or decomposed plant matter, and hydrocarbons. Using UV fluorescence technology, a properly configured TD-4100XD can alert operators to upsets caused by hydrocarbons such as gasoline, diesel, fuel oil, and crude oil.
Demineralization is the process of removing mineral salts as well as organic impurities from water by means of ion-exchange and can be found in various industries such as the chemical, food & beverage, irrigation and filtration industries. The consuming side of the industry relies on ever increasing quality and availability of demi-water while the manufacturers have to balance cost/output. AppliTek provides high quality analytical tools to increase process efficiency and quality control. Continuous measurements...
Wastewater from a textile facility contains a variety of dyes and organic chemicals from the manufacturing processes that are often difficult to treat. Spectral analysis is well suited for monitoring waste streams to identify problematic dyes prior to treatment. Continuous monitoring of effluent wastewater for BOD and COD helps to ensure effective treatment and quality of effluent to ensure regulatory goals are met prior to discharge.
Pollution Risk: Surface water encompasses storm water derived from hard standing areas, river water and reservoirs. All types of surface water are at risk from ingress of pollution and therefore need to be monitored. On-line continuous monitoring can identify and alarm pollution so corrective action can be taken
Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.
Maintaining the quality of natural waters provides numerous economic benefits by preventing severe deterioration of water resources that would require expensive treatment operations to protect public health and the environment. For instance, monitoring nitrates in surface waters can possibly prevent algal blooms from happening by facilitating the necessary steps to stop pollution sources from discharging nitrogen nutrients into the water system.
Water is a critical component of almost any industry’s process and careful monitoring of water chemistry can have a dramatic impact on your quality, environmental impact, and bottom line. However, it is often difficult for operators to understand how their water chemistry will impact their process, particularly when the tools to acquire that data often don’t exist. This makes it incredibly costly and difficult to acquire the data you need to make decisions.
Diseases related to contamination of drinking water constitute a major burden on human health. The manufacturing, processing and distribution of safe water throughout the water cycle will raise the need for efficient monitoring systems detecting in real-time contamination, be it chemical or biological. Infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria and parasites are the most common and widespread health risk associated with drinking-water. A number of chemical contaminants have been shown to cause adverse...
Years ago, high purity water was used only in limited applications. Today, deionized (Dl) water has become an essential ingredient in hundreds of applications including: medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics manufacturing, food processing, plating, countless industrial processes, and even the final rinse at the local car wash.
Collecting, treating and distributing water to consumers and industry, in compliance with quality standards, means a challenging task to water companies. Both private as public water treatment entities have to manage carefully and sustainably their sources, processes and even distribution networks. AppliTek supports them not only with an extended portfolio of analyzers but also with its experience in the advice, design and construction of complete monitoring systems and stations.
