  • Water Quality System

    Let me explain that our basic idea is how better to use the not many typologies (and parameters) of on-line sensors available on market to make low-cost sustainable intelligent monitoring. We all know that the total water quality is related to about fifty of quality measurement analytic parameters, but on-site and in on-line way, it is possible to detect only about ten electro-chemical or ISE ...

  • Optical water quality assessment

    Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have proven that measuring fluorescence could improve source water monitoring during a study of the McKenzie River in Oregon.  The study was designed to assess the amount, type and source of dissolved organic carbon that exists in all sources of drinking water. Dissolved organic carbon can react with chlorine during water treatment and form ...
