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.
Water abstraction points may be affected by spills from farms or factories, and deliberate contamination. Early warning monitoring systems are required to alert operators to these contaminants and to changes in key water quality parameters. A timely response is necessary to prevent contamination and disruption of the public water supply.
Chelsea Technologies Group has developed FastGuard to observe the natural trends in water quality parameters and rapidly detect and report anomalies.
FastGuard is ideally...
Monitoring Sewage Flow is a critical tool for local governments, for water and waste-water utilities and for industrial plants. Sewage monitoring can prevent environmental disasters such as sewage overflow within populated neighborhoods or excessive waste flow into local lakes, rivers or sea. Sewage monitoring is also an important tool for short term and long term planning of the sewers infrastructure. Short term refers to just-in-time and cost effective maintenance. For example, sending the technical team to...
Sewer Meters monitor sewage level and flow within the sewers. Benefits gained by sewer monitoring include:
(1) Detection of overflow conditions before overflow occurs thereby preventing hazardous environmental events.
(2) Detection of blocked sewer pipes, allowing quick and focused maintenance thereby reducing maintenance costs.
(3)Detection of over-used and under-used pipes for long term municipal planning.
(4) Monitoring of sewage flow in sensitive sites such as flow to the river or sea.
(5) Estimation of...
Urban Hydrology deals with the specific aspects of the hydrological cycle in urban and industrial settings. This includes all natural water flows as well as the consideration of precipitation, storm water, groundwater, rivers, and lakes, but also the infrastructure and systems for water supply and sanitation in a city.
Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.
Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application....
The infrastructure required by the iron and steel industry is considerable, and includes a variety of rotating machines such as pumps, fans and rolling mills. Processes and operating conditions vary according to the product worked, and may involve cyclic operations, complex facilities, and stringent security and accessibility constraints.
The oil and gas industry requires major infrastructure in terms of refineries and offshore extraction platforms which operate continuously. A large number of essential rotating machines, structures and piping networks are subjected to high levels of demand in a difficult environment, leading to the potential for breakage.
State-of-the-art systems enabling easy monitoring of CO2 and CH4 gases. Capped Landfill Sites produce a range of gases, mostly methane and carbon dioxide. Legislation requires that these gases are safely removed from beneath the cap to avoid a physical explosion due to the build-up of pressure beneath the cap. Safe disposal usually entails burning such as flare stacks, internal combustion engines or by processing to produce Methane gas fuel. For large sites with access to power distribution infrastructure...
