Security of water assets is becoming an increasingly major issue that demands immediate and robust alarms for potential contamination. In addition to this, natural growth of algae is a common problem for water asset managers, the results of which can increase maintenance costs of water processing plants as well as directly effecting water taste. The CTG FastGuard fast repetition rate fluorometer analyses information on the physiological state of the algae it monitors within an in-line flow system. A number of key parameters are monitored and analysed by the on-board embedded software, which instantly initiates both an audible and visual alarm on detection of a contaminant within the water system. The FastGuard is a robust low maintenance system which avoids false positives often provided by other contamination detection systems.
