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.
Continuous monitoring of nutrient levels provides crucial information about daily, seasonal and event based changes in water quality conditions, and can be a strong indicator on the overall health of the water body. In recent years, monitoring of nutrients has grown in importance as it has come to the forefront in regulatory compliance of water quality in many regions.
A plant located in the eastern United States manufactures phenolic resin for applications in plastics molding. This plant uses well water for cooling its reaction process and then discharges the water into a local creek.
Surface water monitoring as an application covers many different environments and can require different equipment depending on the monitoring requirements. Possible environments include lakes, rivers and coastal waters where the monitoring may be focused on water quality or water level measurement. Aquaread offer instruments suitable for each of these environments and have a wide range of possibilities depending on the kind of data you wish to collect.
Measuring and looking after our water resource is a hot topic worldwide. Governments, Councils, Water Authorities, Companies and individuals all are increasing their efforts to help protect this resource. EU Legislation around monitoring landfills, nitrate levels and the water framework directive have been introduced to help guide water quality monitoring. Aquaread’s range of water quality instruments are all suitable for spot, short and long-term deployments and are a popular choice for companies as they...
Measuring water quantity and quality in surface water (open channels, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and estuaries) is one of the foundations of hydrological monitoring and has been a focus of OTT Hydromet since its first water current meters were designed in 1875.
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.
Fluorescence-based oil in water monitors from Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments have been used extensively in industrial water processes for more than 20 years. These low maintenance fluorescence monitors have no significant measurement disturbance from water turbidity or naturally occurring organics in the water. Oil in water monitors can help detect and prevent major oil spills that may cause significant environmental damage and regulatory compliance infractions.
Detection of hydrocarbons within both water sources and effluent intake to Waste Water Treatment Works is an increasing requirement. The UviLux Hydrocarbon fluorometer detects hydrocarbons in water at very low concentrations. This in-situ fluorometer provides a rugged sensor which can be deployed in a wide variety of configurations. The UviLux is part of the Lux range of CTG fluorometers, and can be provided with a number of options with regard to signal protocols, and has available accessories to enable...
Now for the first time you can measure ion levels in drinking / tap water, rivers and lakes using one probe and one set of calibration solutions. We have probes specially tailored for environmental testing. Our Environmental probes measure Chloride, Ammonium and Nitrogen or we have a total nitrogen probe measuring Ammonium and Nitrogen. Each probe can be calibrated in our unique calibration solutions allowing you to calibrate all sensors simultaneously and take measurements in drinking or river water. Probes...

Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.
Waste water is one of the most important environments to monitor. Increasingly strict regulations require cleaner waste water discharges into both watercourses and sewer systems. Monitoring waste water before discharge allows you to detect any potential pollutants and trigger re-treatment, so that these can be removed. Aquaread designs and manufactures a range of water testing equipment that is ideal for various environments and deployments.
