Improved monitoring and automation can deliver more efficient waste treatment and reduced energy consumption and improved effluent quality. The cost of treatment and the quality of effluent discharge can thus be significantly reduced.
Respiration rate monitoring of Antwerp treatment works showed periods when the activated sludge was up to 40% inhibited, with resultant sludge washout episodes. Using the Health monitoring test, a pattern of ‘normal’ respiration rates for a plant can be determined. Lower respiration rates will alert the treatment works to a chronic toxicity problem, allowing corrective actions to be taken. Toxicity monitoring can now be carried out on a routine daily basis, at all treatment works receiving potentially toxic...
The method allows determination of water-soluble forms of inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, nitrates, fluorides and phosphates) and organics (acetates, formates, and oxalates) anions in soils, clays, peats, wastewater silts, activated sludges and bottom sediments by capillary electrophoresis method.
The content of water-soluble forms of inorganic cations (ammonium, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium) is one of the substantial characteristics in agrochemical, land reclamation, and sanitary assessments of soils (arable, hayland, pasturable, forest nursery soils). The cation balance should be controlled during ecological soil monitoring for the human activity impact assessment.
Real Tech offers solutions that can provide substantial benefits to drinking water treatment plants. Continuous online monitoring can ensure water quality standards are met without the need for chemical overdosing while maintaining high confidence in the safety of the treated water. Significant cost savings can be achieved by optimizing coagulant dosage, reduced sludge production and reduced energy requirements.
To meet the requirements of new regulations and to protect the environment effectively, industries need techniques that enable the analysis of elements at lowest concentration levels. Bruker X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is the most suitable analytical technique for handling different kinds of materials. Bruker’s XRF, ICP-MS, GC, TOF-MS, FT-IR, CBRNE products and applications help you to monitor contaminated land efficiently and quickly, to determine hazardous elements in the air and water, as well as...
