In industry water is used for various processes, e.g. for heating, for cooling, as steam to drive turbines, as a reaction medium and for cleaning. Depending on the application water requires a specific quality / purity.
Pure water and highly purified water are crucial factors to production in numerous processes and industries and can be used as a raw material, auxiliary and/or for process operation. It is very important to pay particular attention to the quality of the water used as it is crucial to product quality and the safe operation of the production facilities. Therefore, continuous monitoring is essential - from an ecological as well as an economic point of view.
Real Tech’s analyzers can be used in municipal wastewater treatment applications to ensure environmental compliance and to increase process efficiency by continuously monitoring the incoming loads and making process adjustments accordingly to optimize aeration rates, and nutrient and chemical dosing.
A number of treatment products are often added to prevent corrosion, scaling and fouling. Coating of sensors and other effects of these products must be taken into account when selecting analyzers. Discharge monitoring needs special attention because zero measurements must be reliable over time with little maintenance.
Total organic carbon measurements in the manufacturing or semiconductor industry are of big importance regarding product quality and safety in process. TOC levels inUltra Pure Water (UPW)applications are very low.
The monitoring of “Ultra Pure Water” or “High Purity Water” requires the lowest possible detection limits for process analyzers. Resistivity is often around 18 MΩ. Dedicated instruments can detect infinitely small amounts (ppt e.g. parts per trillion) of ions.
Water analysis of pharmaceutical water, asPurified Water (PW),Highly Purified Water (HPW)orWater for Injection (WFI)is of special concern in the pharma industry regarding product quality and safety in process.
The technology of Spectral Fluorescence Signatures (SFS) is a very sensitive and selective tool to monitor many industrial processes on site and in real-time. The SFS analyzer series – SFS-Scanner and Instant Screener spectrofluorometers - are capable of detecting target substances even in complex mixtures without any pre-treatment of the samples.
The most important parameters in Water/Steam Cycles such as Cation conductivity, dissolved oxygen and pH are available as pre-assembled and factory tested units. Dedicated analyzers for sodium, silica, phosphate and hydrazine are also factory tested and calibrated for immediate operation.
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.
New regulation forces ships to lower the emissions of SO2. Ships travelling in SECA areas has to either run on low sulphur fuel, or install SO2 scrubbers. To measure the SO2 emissions from a ship is not an easy task. OPSIS provides the Port Authorities with a unique measurement principle where the emissions from the ship is measured remotely. Light is passing the emissions and by analyzing the light, concentrations of SO2 can be measured.
In accordance with WHO’s Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality there is no health-based guideline value of zinc in water concentration. Concentration of zinc in tap water can increase as a result of its dissolution from pipes. Also, elevated levels of zinc may be an indicator of increased concentrations of other toxic metals; thereby zinc in water analysis is an essential analytical task.
Lumex Instruments provides sensitive and selective fluorimetric method for the measurement of mass concentration of zinc in...

CH4 (Methane) is a colorless, odorless natural gas that is used in a wide variety of industrial applications such as power generation and chemical production. It is also a byproduct of many biological and geological processes, fracking, and gas drilling. It is highly flammable and creates amounts of carbon monoxide as its combustion byproduct. Methane needs constant monitoring in waste water treatment (for co-generation) and to ensure proper process control (e.g. to determine burning efficiency). A quality CH4...
