  • Monitoring Phenol in Water

    The Situation 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. A leak in the reactor and associated cooling equipment would cause phenol and phenolic compounds to contaminate the cooling water. Such a leak could ...

  • Using UV Fluorescence technology to monitor for organic pollutants in Flood Water

    For many years the water industry has relied on traditional sampling techniques to monitor water quality in a wide range of environments.  Traditional tests such as BOD, PH, Dissolved Oxygen and Ammonia have formed the bedrock of monitoring parameters.  There is however other ways to establish water quality and UV fluorescence offers an up to date solution for the investigation of ...

  • Different technology options for monitoring oil in produced water – inline continuous monitoring and IR analysis

    No offshore facility wants to be caught with a sheen around their platform as that can result in a costly fine for exceeding discharge permit limits for oil. Onboard oil in water analyzers are necessary to ensure the oil/water separation systems are functioning properly before overboard disposal of the produced water. Bench top analyzers have traditionally been used to test oil in water although ...

  • New monitoring technology helps reveal Arctic secrets

    A group of Arctic researchers has employed the latest monitoring technology to investigate the effects of climate change, by measuring temperature and salinity in the water column beneath surface ice. The results of the investigation, which utilised YSI’s new 'Castaway-CTD', could cast new light on our understanding of the ways in which shifting ocean currents impact upon the climate in ...

  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...

  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • Water Distribution System Security Monitoring

    A water security instrument essentially needs to be able to detect potential contaminants in drinking water. Since a significant number of potential chemical contaminants are organic in nature, a water security monitoring instrument that can detect organic matter in water is perfect for this application. Real Tech has developed an instrument specifically designed for water security ...

  • Monitoring Water Resources Beyond Irrigation

    Over the past year, California’s governor has taken unprecedented action, requiring Californians to drastically cut potable urban water use. While the restrictions may seem harsh to some, it actually provides an opportunity for building managers and community association boards to implement an effective long-term water conservation program. And the result can be significant dollar savings. ...

  • Scottish Water Flow Monitoring Contracts

    Scottish Water commissioned HL in 2007 to deliver two separate flow monitoring contracts to help improve the water companies understanding of the yield and low flow conditions at several water supply catchments across Scotland. One project involved the installation of reservoir level, inflow flow gauges and recording raingauge devices in nine reservoir catchments in South West Scotland. Although ...

  • NEW BLOG ENTRY: Water Monitoring Goals

    The concept of biological filtration has become a common means to remove organics prior to disinfection to minimize formation of disinfection by-products. However, the tools available to assess biological growth tendencies in biological filters are limited. Heterotrophic Plate Counts and other culture-based methods take days to obtain results, only measure very small portions of the true ...

  • Decision making and technology selection in water (reuse) applications

    In recent years, a large number of developed countries have considered water reuse schemes as a mandated alternative water resource to tackle water scarcity. With increasing knowledge on and understanding of the merits of water reuse in developing communities, a number of planned water reuse schemes have also been established (Chen et al., 2012; Fatta-Kassinos et al., 2011a). The range of water ...
