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...
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.
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...
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.
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.
Wastes that are rich in starch such as those that occur in potato processing industries require a balanced addition of other macronutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. In order to optimize the dosing of these nutrients it is essential to have a good idea about the organic load entering the biological treatment reactor. Measurement of colour can help with quality control and flavour consistency.
Monitoring process streams and waste streams continuously in a brew house can provide many benefits to operations. Monitoring product in process for color or concentration provides consistency and quality measures. Product loss can be quantified by monitoring waste streams. Processes can be improved to increase efficiency and minimize effluent waste. Effluent waste streams can also be monitored for organic loading with BOD and COD correlations to ensure compliance for discharge.
Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-bird Coastal offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications.
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.
The Sorbisense method is especially suitable for measurements in dynamic environments. For example, in rivers, streams and lakes.
The method is innovative and allows you to implement continuous and cost effective measurements in both urban and in rural areas. For example, measuring the leaching of nutrients from the cultivation of wetlands and measuring water quality in rainwater and sewage.
CairTub allows the easy deployment of autonomous measurement points virtually anywhere. The system can be used in harsh weather conditions. It is also the ideal tool for low cost studies for the optimisation and setting-up of fixed air quality monitoring stations.
Cairpol systems can be used for fugitive emissions and odour measurement on industrial sites like waste water treatment plants (WWTP), landfill, compost plant, along a street or motorway, or in any sensitive area.
Cairpol monitoring systems also offer...
Demineralization is the process of removing mineral salts as well as organic impurities from water by means of ion-exchange and can be found in various industries such as the chemical, food & beverage, irrigation and filtration industries. The consuming side of the industry relies on ever increasing quality and availability of demi-water while the manufacturers have to balance cost/output. AppliTek provides high quality analytical tools to increase process efficiency and quality control. Continuous measurements...
Water resource management refers to the conservation, custody and transport monitoring of water as a natural resource. Measurements are made to quantify water for the purpose of protection, forecasting, management, lawmaking, enforcement, policymaking, resource allocation and public reporting. Stevens has been providing quality products for water management for over 100 years.
The management of hydro-meteorological data demands the highest process standards. Both recorded and derived data from various observation areas are archived together, edited in graphical and tabular form, analyzed, evaluated and presented. In order that these tasks are carried out efficiently and economically, the support of a specialized software solution is required. Our water data management solutions offer a comprehensive spectrum of functions for integrated collection, processing, quality control, evaluation...
Automation can save money, optimise a process and give warning of potential breeches of discharge consent. However, instrument selection is fundamentally important if a control system is to function efficiently. The measurement device must accurately and quickly respond to process variations and it must be reliable in operation if the control system is to function as intended. Designed properly, energy and chemical use can be significantly reduced, saving money and ultimately improving effluent quality.
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...
