Sediment and Nutrient Loads

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

SedEvent is an event-driven, automatic grab sampling system that provides a simple and practical method of accurately determining suspended sediment and nutrient loads. While suspended sediment concentration (SSC) cannot be directly measured accurately or reliably, turbidity has been shown to be an excellent surrogate for SSC. Turbidity is caused by suspended particulate matter such as clay, silt, algae, organic and inorganic chemicals and acids like fertilizers, and microscopic organisms like harmful bacteria. These contents give water its cloudy or turbid appearance, and turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of natural health. Measuring suspended sediment concentrations used to be labor-intensive, costly, inaccurate and impractical. SedEvent not only makes it possible and practical, it makes it simple.

Continuous Instream Monitoring

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

Turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of its environmental health, and because it's a good surrogate for suspended sediment, monitoring turbidity has always been the "holy grail" for hydrologists. But because of earlier technology, "turbidity" has traditionally been a "bad word". The DTS-12 turbidity sensor is the first sensor to make turbidity monitoring practical, and no longer difficult, inaccurate, expensive, or labor-intensive. Turbidity is the cloudiness or murkiness of water caused by suspended organic or inorganic materials. Turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of its environmental health.

Water quality monitoring for pulp & paper industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Pulp and paper waste streams are exceptionally well suited for spectral analysis due to the high concentration of UV/Vis light absorbing organics in their process water and waste streams. Continuous monitoring of the organic load by means of COD/BOD correlations will help ensure the treatment process is carried out in the most efficient way possible by optimizing aeration rates and nutrient dosing while also making sure that all the regulatory goals are met.

Monitoring industrial trade discharge for wastewater treatement industry

by Pollution & Process Monitoring Ltd     based in Sevenoaks, UNITED KINGDOM

Industry has had to respond to the requirements of progressive environmental legislation such as the Urban Waste Water Directive, IPC, IPPC and now the EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations). As successive legislation becomes more stringent, discharge consents have been progressively tightened, and the need for self-regulation has become more important. As a consequence, on-line instrumentation has been installed throughout waste-water industry to continuously to provide trade discharge monitoring and perform continuous water analysis for key consent parameters.

Haze Monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

EPR waste minimisation monitoring for wastewater treatment industry

by Pollution & Process Monitoring Ltd     based in Sevenoaks, UNITED KINGDOM

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 point scoring system to assess operators under the OMA-3 program and this will be used to identify how well a company is managing their processes and possibly identify areas for improvement. The Environmental Permitting Regulations require industry to install instrumentation (MCERTS approved where available) to report water quality. EPR compliance monitoring may include automatic water sampling, flow measurement, pH, turbidity and TOC water analysis. Industry will need to identify point of source emissions, take steps to correct inefficient control and alarm unacceptable process deviations. Although the legislation focuses on environmental improvement, good housing keeping also makes a lot of sense. Optimisation of process control minimises waste, reduces treatment costs and ultimately saves money.

Process monitoring and controlling for wastewater treatment industry

by Pollution & Process Monitoring Ltd     based in Sevenoaks, UNITED KINGDOM

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.

Turbidity Monitoring

by Chelsea Technologies Group     based in West Molesey, UNITED KINGDOM

The monitoring of Turbidity is key requirement of the water industry in both water supply and water recovery systems. Within the water supply process, monitoring of turbidity allows operators to assess the efficiency of filters for particulate removal through the process. Similarly, with water recovery (Waste Water Treatment Works), the measurement of turbidity is a key parameter to track the removal of particulate through the process. CTG can provide turbidity measurements with the UniLux sensor, or provides turbidity as one of the parameters available within the 3 channel TriLux. For applications requiring turbidity measurements compliant to ISO07027:1999, CTG can offer the TurbiLux Nephelometer.

Water Testing for Environmental Applications

by Myron L Company     based in Carlsbad, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

Water quality monitoring for textile industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Wastewater from a textile facility contains a variety of dyes and organic chemicals from the manufacturing processes that are often difficult to treat. Spectral analysis is well suited for monitoring waste streams to identify problematic dyes prior to treatment. Continuous monitoring of effluent wastewater for BOD and COD helps to ensure effective treatment and quality of effluent to ensure regulatory goals are met prior to discharge.

Water Testing for Textile Manufacturing

by Myron L Company     based in Carlsbad, CALIFORNIA (USA)

The textile manufacturing industry encompasses many and diverse processes that rely heavily on the use of water, energy, chemicals, and other resources. Wet spinning, sizing, desizing, scouring, bleaching, mercerization, dyeing and printing are just a few. Monitoring and controlling the pH, TDS/Conductivity/Salt Concentration, ORP (REDOX), and Temperature of the aqueous solutions used in these processes conserves costly resources, controls quality, and reduces the amount of pollution that must be treated before discharge of effluent wastes. This can be done manually with handheld instruments or automatically with in-line monitor/controllers.
