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...
The Sorbisense method allows for continuous monitoring of water quality. Measurements can be conducted as screenings of water catchments, warnings in catchments or directly into the supply system.
This method makes it possible to identify and map known problems, but also to trace the source of emergent problems.
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.
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.
Maintaining the quality of natural waters provides numerous economic benefits by preventing severe deterioration of water resources that would require expensive treatment operations to protect public health and the environment. For instance, monitoring nitrates in surface waters can possibly prevent algal blooms from happening by facilitating the necessary steps to stop pollution sources from discharging nitrogen nutrients into the water system.
Effective water quality monitoring is the key to environmental protection of watercourses and for reliable process control and wastewater treatment. Discharge consents under EPR regulations dictate that water quality monitoring is undertaken to ensure that consented parameters are below the consented concentrations. Traditionally this has been done using water quality sampling methods but increasingly automatic water quality measurement sensors linked to real-time telemetry is seen as the most reliable and...
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.
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.
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.
Water is fundamental to the manufacturing process in a semiconductor facility. Electronic components are rinsed or washed several times during the producing process with ultrapure water (UPW) to remove residue. Continuous monitoring of organic constituents (TOC) on the influent city water assist with UPW production. Good quality waste streams for the manufacturing process can also be monitored for reuse potential.
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...
The reasons for testing water quality in groundwater are numerous. Monitoring water quality and conducting tests is a good way to gather data on aquifer hydraulics. It can also be used to monitor parameters such as rhodamine, which helps to understand movement of underground water. Human activities can have an impact on groundwater quality, and conducting tests in this field can help to track these effects. Leachate from landfill and fertiliser can both find their way into groundwater. It is important to monitor...
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.
