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.
Process water is one of the most challenging for analysis instrumentation. Mostly this water is characterized by a certain purity, fluctuating loads, as well as very high salt concentrations. Since any disturbance in water-circuits can lead to an entire plant shutdown, resulting in huge costs, reliable and fast online water analyzers are an essential. Due to the diverse demands of various measurement challenges, application-specific analyzers provide huge advantages against standard analyzers that are used for...
Waste water, especially industrial waste water, is the most challenging water for instrumentation. Mostly, this water is characterized by highly fluctuating loads, very high salt concentrations as well as a high particle density. Hence, the accurancy and speed of measurements depends on the measurement system itself and the oxidation technique used. Obviously, application-specific analyzers provide huge advantages against standard analyzers that are used for all applications.
Due to toxic, adhesive, sticky or fatty characteristics water management at chemical plants is very challenging. Using LAR`s application-specific technology you can improve your water management efficiency by reliable on-line measurements.
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.
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 production in the pulp and paper industry requires large amounts of water. The German Waste Water Ordinance implies that the resulting effluent has to be tested on the content of chemical oxygen demand (COD). In comparison with conventional testing methods the use of online COD analyzers offers high savings and also enables efficient water management.
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.
In the food and beverage industry, water is used in the primary production, e.g. in farming for cleaning and sanitation, as an ingredient or component of an ingredient, as well as in processing operations, such as cooling, heating.
In the winter months aeroplanes, runways and landing strips are de-iced with the help of chemicals resulting in the pollution of storm water. Consequently, its disposal may have an extreme impact on waste water treatment plants or public water. Hence, the continuous monitoring of this storm water is of special importance.
Agribusiness is a collective term for a variety of activities within the agriculture production. It includes amongst others the production of agrichemicals (e.g. pestizides, fertilizer), breeding, crop production, processing and distribution.
