Public water supplies face growing pressure to do more with less, from sampling and maintenance to data analysis and customer calls. In-Situ solutions help streamline data collection and provide real-time insights into your data to improve operational efficiency. Our water quality and water flow instruments reduce sampling time and maintenance, while our cloud-based data platform gives you decision-level data 24/7
Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is one of the most common integral indicators of anthropogenic pollution of water bodies. COD is widely used in the analysis of natural water, to control wastewater treatment from organic various substances.
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...

Physico-chemical parameters alone are not sufficient in obtaining reliable information on treated wastewater. Online toxicity monitoring must be performed in combination with routine chemical analysis. The assessment of biological effects of wastewater discharges in the ecosystems is today considered relevant and ecotoxicological tests identifying the ecological hazard are useful tools for the identification of environmental impacts.
The ability to collect useful data about sediment transport and other pollutants closely coupled to SSC (such as nutrients, e-coli, phosphates and nitrates) is dependent on the timing and frequency of manual grab samples during run-off events. Most sediment and pollutant is transported during a small number of storm events which are infrequent and unpredictable. When they do occur, trained personnel or the proper equipment may not be available to collect grab samples. An automated pump sampler can eliminate the...

Upstream and downstream activities in the industry require a variety of gas analysis capabilities that are well served by MIRICO’s laser-based technology. Our unique Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technique is a versatile technology that can be deployed in an open-path configuration for the measurement of methane for health & safety monitoring. When combined with an array of reflectors, a single light source can cover a complex route in excess of 1 km, a considerably larger distance than comparable...
Chemical purity of water is assessed for a wide variety of different chemicals depending on the type of water and applicable local legislation.
Chemical analysis of water can include testing for nitrogen compounds, dissolved heavy metals, and total and dissolved organic carbon.
Common water monitoring applications include:
Determination of suspended solids in waterusing for example glass fiber filters.
Chemical analyses of for example heavy metals, dissolved organic carbons (DOC), and ions.
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...
Industry and municipal waste-water (sewage) treatment plants have had to respond to 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 final effluent...
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...
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.
Chemical plants that produce high quantities of phenols (plastics, pesticides and pharmaceutical industries) and other aromatic organic compounds are excellent candidates for wastewater characterization via spectral analysis. Chemicals that contain conjugated double bonds absorb UV radiation remarkably well. The benefits include higher precision in process control as well as optimization of wastewater treatment.
MANTECH’s game-changing water quality analysis technology is revolutionizing wastewater treatment at industrial and municipal facilities worldwide. The PeCOD Analyzer provides accurate chemical oxygen demand (COD) results and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) estimates within minutes rather than the hours or days required for standard COD and BOD testing — without the use of dichromate, mercury, acids and other harmful chemicals.
Pulp and paper waste streams are exceptionally well suited for spectral analysis due to the high concentration of UV/Vis light absorbing organics in their process water and waste streams. Continuous monitoring of the organic load by means of COD/BOD correlations will help ensure the treatment process is carried out in the most efficient way possible by optimizing aeration rates and nutrient dosing while also making sure that all the regulatory goals are met.
Accurate estimation of the spatial distribution of rainfall is critical to successfully model hydrologic processes. OneRain has worked with engineering firms and those with responsibilities in Stormwater and Wastewater Management across the U.S. to provide radar rainfall data to help characterize storm events or flow problems in collection systems and as a basis for both real-time and design-oriented modeling. OneRainware products and services offer:
*Real-time gauge-adjusted radar rainfall (GARR) data
