UVT 101: UV Transmittance Monitoring for UV Disinfection
ABOUT UVT UV transmittance, UV transmission or UVT is a measurement of the amount of ultraviolet light (commonly at 254 nm due to its germicidal effect) that passes through a water sample compared to the amount of light that passes through a pure water sample. To measure UVT, ultraviolet light at 254 nm is passed through a 10 mm quartz cell containing the sample water. The intensity of attenuated ...
How Document Control Process Step 4 - Training Assignment Confirmation - Can Help Even When you are NOT Using the QM10 Training Section!
The Document Control Process APP comes with SOLABS QM10 as part of the QM Essentials Package. It provides an electronic Document Change Request process that helps in the following ways: Provides a way for users to request new documents, document revisions or the need to retire a document and obtain management/owner approval before the changes are actually made Facilitates the document ...
Gas Concentration Monitoring in the Industry
There are often rules and regulations dictating what and how to monitor when it comes to emissions to the ambient air. By example, the European Union has established the Industrial Emissions Directive (the IED, 2010/75/EU) with conclusions on best available techniques (BATCs) for different types of industries. These documents serve as guidance and in some cases minimum requirements for national ...

The benefits of machine learning and deterministic modelling
Traditionally, the optimum coagulant dose is determined by jar testing which has multiple limitations. These limitations can be overcome by incorporating machine learning and process modelling using raw water quality and process control parameters. Coagulation in water treatment Coagulation is a critical component of water treatment. In order to meet drinking water quality criteria, suspended ...
Groundwater Nitrate Monitoring Applications
Nitrate in source water can be challenging to manage and lead to potential non-compliance issues. Continuous monitoring of nitrate enables you to keep a real-time pulse on nitrate concentrations from source water to finished water, offering many benefits: Compliance with drinking water standards for nitrate Optimized blending ratios to maximize water use Efficient nitrate treatment with ion ...
Organic Matter in Drinking Water: A Guide for Simple Online Monitoring
Control of dissolved organics has been one of the highest priority concerns for most water treatment plants for over 20 years. Organics monitoring is an even more critical issue today in the face of more stringent regulations and concerns around trace organics, emerging contaminants, and even counter-terrorism or water security. Despite the critical need, many plants still rely primarily on ...
Measuring Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Continuously in Real Time
Real-time BOD monitoring is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s no surprise as the alternative is a 5 day wait for lab results. Continuous organics monitoring opens the door for many new treatment process control and optimization possibilities that can result in significant cost savings, improved water quality, and compliance peace of mind. Information can be utilized to more effectively dose ...
Analysis of Sludge Disposal Process and Pollution Control in Urban Sewage Treatment Plant
Based on the sludge incineration and disposal project of an urban sewage treatment plant in Changzhou City, this paper summarizes the main pollution problems and control measures in the process of sludge drying and incineration from the perspective of disposal technology, and provides a reference for the pollution control of similar projects. The wet sludge with moisture ...

Real-Time Organic Loading Monitoring for Municipal Wastewater Treatment
Summary Operational decisions can be difficult to make when incoming wastewater quality fluctuates. Industrial manufacturers can discharge highly concentrated wastewater unexpectedly causing operational problems if not detected. Aside from potential operational problems, shock loading also has the potential to affect regulatory compliance if wastewater cannot be treated properly. Monitoring ...
Optimize Chemical Dosage for Water Treatment with UV254
Drinking water plants that use surface water or groundwater under the influence of surface water are susceptible to high levels of organic matter in the raw water. Reduction of organic matter through coagulation/ sedimentation and filtration plays a critical role in lowering the potential for disinfection by-product formation (DBP) and minimizing operational problems. Organic matter in water ...
The Cost of Quality
We all know that poor quality is a bad thing. Whether you are the end user or the manufacturer, everyone wants to make sure that the things we buy, use, or create are the very best quality possible. In the world of quality control, there is a concept known as the “Cost of Quality”, or COQ. This value takes four main factors into consideration and provides the manufacturer with a way ...
New! SOLABS Client Success group can train your staff on QM10 via your QM10 instance! Videos included!
SOLABS maintains a library of video tutorials on how to perform certain actions in SOLABS QM10. For example, how to approve a Document, how to complete Training, how to initiate a Document Control Process, how to manage the Audit Process, etc. This library grows each time we deploy a new functionality, make an important change to the system or simply when we receive a request from our users. ...
X-Ray Crystallography: Protein Sample Requirements
A precondition for a successful crystallographic screening is a pure, stable, and monodisperse protein sample. In the process of protein production, controls such as SDS-gels already indicate towards the purity of a protein sample. Additionally, during standard concentration determination via UV/VIS, contamination by DNA or RNA can be assessed. In the following section, typical methods for ...
Source Water Monitoring Guide for Drinking Water Treatment
The purpose of source water monitoring is to enable drinking water treatment facilities to identify changes in water quality, implement treatment strategies based on the characteristics of the water, optimize the treatment processes, and take preventative actions to protect the source water from intentional and accidental contamination.
