    Monitoring of raw water intake

    The Situation:

    Hydrocarbons in municipal water supplies,  including fresh water and desalination systems, are commonly limited to less than 1 part per million. Surface water from rivers, lakes, or the sea with marine traffic, nearby pipelines, or regular flooding can be contaminated by hydrocarbons. Freshwater treatment systems can be damaged by hydrocarbons or allow them to pass through undetected. Desalination systems using reverse osmosis (RO) membranes can be irreversibly damaged by the presence of hydrocarbons. Continuous monitoring of water source intakes can prevent system contamination and subsequent damage.  Accurate, low maintenance monitoring systems such as the TD-4100 XD and XDC have been protecting water intakes worldwide for over 20 years.

  • Monitoring Sewage Flow

    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 the correct manhole at the correct time to clean and eliminate obstructions. Long term planning refers to designing the correct pipe diameters and correct slopes to contain sewage from new new buildings and plants. Sewage monitoring is a tool for billing plants who produce sewage above their water intake and a tool for plants which utilize water to request lower utility bills. Solid Applied Technologies provides a complete and tested solution for Sewer Monitoring.

    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.

  • 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.

    Monitoring once through cooling water

    The Situation

    Power plants and paper mills use service water loops and mill water loops respectively for the cooling of lubricating, hydraulic, turbine and transformer oil.  These cooling systems feature large, recirculating volumes of water which are treated with biocides, dispersants, and corrosion inhibitors. By comparison, refineries often use once through cooling water systems. The cooling water is taken from lakes, rivers, or the ocean and circulated once through the plant to cool processes. Large volumes of water are used to keep the return water temperature low enough to prevent adverse effects on the environment.

    Monitor Dredging Slurry Flow

    Thousands of dredges are operated to maintain navigation channels in our rivers, lakes and harbours and to mine sand and gravel for the construction industry. Managing and optimizing production from a dredge requires continuous monitoring of pipeline pressure, vacuum and slurry velocity. The operating conditions are extremely harsh and any sensing components in contact with the abrasive slurry can be damaged. But dredge operators need accurate real-time flow information to properly manage production so equipment manufacturers have been seeking innovative monitoring solutions...

  • Example of GPR application on fresh water reservoir

    GPR exploration of fresh water reservoirs allows user to examine in details the bottom. The important feature of GPR use that is to be mentioned - it can examine the structure of the bottom. I.e. there is possible to find underwater items located inside the bottom stratum. Also GPR can provide an information about the thickness of bottom silt or bottom ground, and its volume structure. The same exploration is very problematic if made by other means. In the summer 2012 VIY3-300 GPR was examined as sub-bottom profiler. The tests were made in Kyiv, Ukraine. GPR was placed in a plastic tub and moved across the surface of the fresh water lake. The survey window number of 166 ns corresponds to the depth of 2.7 meters. The signal reflected from the bottom is clearly visible on the profile. Compensation of the signal attenuation along increasing depth reached 60 dB. That indicates the water condition in an urban area.

    Water Testing for Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

  • Dye Tracing

    Monitoring the dilution and movement of a tracer introduced into the water column provides an excellent means of determining the path that may be followed by a discharge and the rate at which dilution is likely to take place. Fluorescent dyes such as Rhodamine, Fluorescein or Agma are the most frequently used tracers for such investigations. Chelsea Technologies has been providing dye tracing systems for over 30 years. Typical applications include sub-sea pipeline leak detection, pollution studies, natural water flow analysis (rivers, lakes, ocean currents, cave water flows, groundwater filtration etc), sewer and storm water drainage analysis. The Chelsea systems can be configured for a wide variety of tracers, are highly sensitive, robust, and deliver real-time data. They can be moored, profiled, towed or affixed to ROV / AUV platforms.
