  • Tank-side on-site: Ammonium and Phosphate Measurement

    AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc - The new HACH LANGE analyser generation determines NH4-N and PO4-P directly at the tank. The instruments combine the advantages of high-precision process analysers with simple handling of an in-situ probe. Installed simply and directly at the side of the tank, they carry out onsite measurements like a probe, as exactly as an analyser, without additional structures or a ...


  • OTT launches new low-maintenance Phosphate monitor

    OTT Hydrometry has launched an advanced version of its ‘Cycle-P’ remote Phosphate monitor for measuring dissolved Phosphate in rivers, lakes and reservoirs. The new ‘HydroCycle PO4’ uses less reagents per test than its predecessor and the reagents have a longer shelf-life. “This means that the HydroCycle PO4 can be left in the field, for even longer periods,” ...

  • OTT launches new Phosphate monitor at WWEM 2016

    The OTT stand (No. 126) at WWEM 2016 will provide the first opportunity for visitors to see the new HydroCycle PO4, the latest version of the Cycle-P remote, battery powered, dissolved phosphate monitor. Designed for long-term high frequency monitoring of remote locations, the HydroCycle PO4 can be left unattended for long periods, testing up to 1,500 samples between service/reagent change. ...

  • Phosphate monitor protects Cumbrian lake during restoration

    Novel phosphate monitoring technology from OTT Hydrometry is helping the South Cumbria Rivers Trust (SCRT) to improve water quality during a project to restore a lake in the north of England. Funded by United Utilities, the Elterwater Remediation Project has been created to improve water quality by increasing water flow through the lake and dramatically lowering residency time. Background ...

  • Successful trial for new remote Phosphate monitor

    Researchers at the UK’s Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) have conducted trials on the river Thames to evaluate a new remote phosphate monitoring technology (Cycle-P) as part of a high-frequency (hourly resolution) monitoring programme that is studying river nutrient concentrations and how they are affected by algal abundance. The monitoring system ran continuously over the summer of ...

  • EPA orders Mississippi phosphates corporation of Pascagoula, ms to correct problems at their facility

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued an Administrative Order on Consent to Mississippi Phosphates Corporation (MPC) in Pascagoula, MS that requires expedited corrective measures be taken at the facility to ensure the protection of public health and the environment. EPA issued the order under Section 7003 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which provides ...

  • More dynamic indicators needed to measure phosphorus’s availability

    Current knowledge on the availability of mineral resources is explored in a recent study, which focuses on phosphorus as a key example. Static measures of availability, such as the consumption-to-production ratio, are useful as early warning signals, the researchers suggest, but more dynamic indicators that consider technological development and population change are needed to better inform ...

  • Hand-held FTIR analyzers — a new capability for at-site measurements of rock and minerals — use of FTIR for elucidating rock and mineral composition

    A2 Technologies' Exoscan hand-held FTIR (Figure 1) is increasingly being used by researchers involved in the geosciences for analysis of rocks, minerals, and soil for a broad variety of applications. The reason for this acceptance is that the Exoscan system, equipped with diffuse reflectance sampling interface, can be used equally effectively in the laboratory or field locales to provide ...


  • ATi Introduces New FOC Process Application Note about Reagent-Free Residual Chlorine Measurement

    Analytical Technology Inc. (ATi) introduces a new free of charge application note entitled “Regent free Residual Chlorine Measurement in process with variable and/or high pH.  The new application note discusses how ATi’s Q45H62 monitoring system measures free chlorine residuals without the need for chemical buffering traditionally associated with such measurements.  Acetate and ...


  • Improved oxygen conditions in the Baltic deep water

    Oxygen conditions in the south eastern Baltic have improved thanks to an inflow of oxygen-rich water from the North Sea during November/December 2011. This inflow has also caused the concentrations of phosphate and silicate to increase in the surface waters, which could cause excessive algal blooms this summer. As a result of the relatively large inflow from the Kattegat to the Baltic ...

  • Qdos pump cuts maintenance time

    Qdos peristaltic pump technology from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, is delivering a significant reduction in maintenance time - from 1.5 hours to just 5 minutes - at the local authority effluent plant in Selters (Westerwald), Germany. The Qdos pump is being used in preference to traditional diaphragm pumps for metering precipitants that help eliminate phosphate in wastewater. The local ...

  • Capillary electrophoresis method according to EPA 6500 and ASTM D6508-10

    Lumex Instruments introduces a capillary electrophoresis method for determination of inorganic anions; fluoride, bromide, chloride, nitrite, nitrate, ortho-phosphate, and sulfate in drinking water, wastewater and ground water according to EPA 6500 and ASTM D6508-10 test methods. This test method is applicable for ...

  • Analysis times cut by 75% at paper recycling plant

    A high-speed, high-temperature HT200S laboratory digester from HACH LANGE has helped one of Europe’s largest recycled packaging companies to cut analysis times by 75%. This process has also enabled Smurfit Kappa SSK to optimise the efficiency of the anaerobic digestion to generate quality biogas, which helps to recycle the effluent waste produced on site. By deploying the advanced HT200S, along ...


  • Turnkey Solution Gets Anglian Water on-stream More Quickly

    Thirtyseven of the sewage treatment sites operated by Anglian Water Services Ltd are being progressively equipped with new phosphate removal systems.
