    Reduce biofilm formation

    In many industrial or professional applications where water is being stored, biofilm may grow. The growth of biofilm can damage the installations and reduce efficiency of the circuit. A biofilm can grow certain substrates which can be found in water. When temperatures are high, for example in cooling towers, a matrix of different micro- organisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae can grow very rapidly causing the formation of a biofilm on certain surfaces submerge in water. During the formation of this biofilm, certain micro organisms starts producing extra cellular polymeric substances (EPS) which reinforce the biofilm structure.

    Cooling Tower, algae and biofilm control

    “Efficiently lowers algae, biofilm formation, bacterial counts and chemical consumption.” When temperatures are high, for example in cooling towers, a matrix of different microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, EPS and algae can grow very rapidly. The disadvantages of biofilm formation in cooling towers can be enormous. Therefore water used in cooling towers needs frequent treatment and chemical shocks to keep levels of micro-organisms to a minimum.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the pipeline hydrotesting & flooding water

    Before natural gas or oil is transported through new pipelines, the entire length of the pipeline assembly is pressure tested using either fresh water or seawater, and is the final construction ‘quality assurance’ test before the pipeline is put into operation.  The pressure test is held for a specific amount of time, from between 1 day and 100 days, to ensure structural integrity before the pipeline is placed into operation.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the hydro pools industry

    Spas and therapy pools are often specialised applications, which operate with both increased temperatures and increased water turbulence. Due to the high temperature of the water and increased bather loads, pool applications, such as spas and therapy pools, are breeding grounds for harmful microorganisms, such as E-Coli and Cryptosporidium, despite high levels of chlorine.

    Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for Water & Wastewater Industry

    Laboratories that analyze drinking water and wastewater form a critical component of our public health infrastructure, guided by criteria in legislation including the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Program (NPDEP). These facilities are required to handle high volumes of sewage and drinking water to analyze for wet chemistry and microbiology before discharge into community water systems. This requires the facilities to maintain continuous sampling programs, thorough recordkeeping and identification of non-conforming samples.

    Gas analysis & monitoring systems for biogas analysis

    “Biogas” means a mixture of various types of gas (mostly methane) produced by bacterial fermentation in anaerobic conditions(absence of oxygen) of organic residues from waste, decaying plant, carcasses in putrescence. The analyzers of biogas by Infrared cells carry out the continuous analysis of CH4, O2, CO2, H2S and NH3. The whole process sees the decomposition of organic material by some types of bacteria, producing carbon dioxide, molecular hydrogen and methane(methane conversion of organic compounds).

    Water Treatment Solutions for Hydrogen Sulfide

    Sulfates and hydrogen sulfide are both common nuisance contaminants. Although neither is usually a significant health hazard, sulfates can have a temporary laxative effect on humans and young livestock. Sulfates also may clog plumbing and stain clothing. Hydrogen sulfide produces an offensive `rotten egg` odor and taste in the water, especially when the water is heated.

    Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

    Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. CO2 is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. CO2 production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks. Excess CO2 levels can lead to tiredness and a lack of concentration and can contribute to the symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome such as headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation, itchy skin and nausea.

  • LifeFilta R20 Container & LifeFilta TapFilta for travelling

    The greatest health risk from drinking water for travelers is associated with microbial contamination. Numerous infectious diseases can be transmitted by drinking contaminated water. Diarrhea is the most common symptom of waterborne infection, affecting 20–50% of all travelers or about 10 million people per year. In localities where the quality of potable water, sanitation and food hygiene practices are questionable, the numbers of parasites, bacteria and viruses in water and food can be substantial, and numerous infections can occur. In some parts of the world, tap or bottled water may not be safe, even if it is clear. All that the traveler needs is to carry our LifeFilta bottle. Just fill it with water from any roadside taps or restaurants and you have clean and safe drinking water throughout your journey. Even if you are in a rural area in a third world country, you can have clean drinking water as long as there is a source of water … any river, lake, pond or stream.

  • Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) monitoring

    Hydrogen sulfide is the chemical compound with the formula H2S. H2S is colorless, toxic and flammable and is responsible for the foul odour of rotten eggs and flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide often results from sulfur reducing bacteria in nonorganic matter (in the absence of oxygen), such as in swamps and sewers (anaerobic digestion). H2S also occurs in volcanic gases, natural gas and some well waters.

  • Monitoring of Algal Production / Monitoring of Algae Growth

    Over the past 20 years active fluorescence has been widely adopted by the scientific community, ecosystem managers and crop growers as a rapid and non-invasive method of estimating photosynthetic performance within a wide range of organisms, including phytoplankton (microalgae and cyanobacteria), biofilms, benthic autotrophs (corals, macroalgae and sea grasses) and terrestrial plants. The main rational for applying active fluorescence is that changes in key fluorescence parameters can reveal the early onset of chronic and acute degradation of photosynthetic performance and subsequent growth, e.g. resulting from nutrient deficiency or the presence on one or more toxicants.

    Over the past 15 years we have been developing an active fluorescence technique called Fast Repetition Rate (FRR) fluorometry to monitor algae populations in the open-ocean, primarily to support climate and ocean modelling.

  • Microbial testing in cooling water system industry

    Superior reliability for superior control! Biocide treatments are essential to control microbiological growth in cooling systems. If not properly managed, the warm environments of cooling systems are ideal for the growth of microorganisms. As microorganism communities grow in cooling systems, they can attach to pipe walls and form biofilms. These biofilms pose serious risks, from human health risks like Legionnaire`s disease to reduced operating efficiency and eventually to equipment failure via microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).

  • Microbial testing for biological wastewater treatment industry

    Realize a new level of process stability and efficiency! Wastewater operators have traditionally had no choice but to rely on TSS or VSS measurements to quantify biomass in their process. These measurements detect much more than just living biomass and therefore are inaccurate and unresponsive indicators of the living population.
