Aquamatic wastewater sampler and service package helps Akzo Nobel with effluent

Posted: Tuesday 11th April 2006

Akzo Nobel Decorative Coatings, a leader in the development and manufacture of high performance coating systems are using an Aquamatic wastewater sampler to help show that it has reduced suspended solids and COD levels at its site in Darwen, near Blackburn.

The stationary sampler from Aquamatic, which has a proven, seven-year track record at Akzo Nobel, is used daily to take 24-hour composite wastewater samples from the company’s recently upgraded effluent treatment plant that handles wastewater from 22 emulsion paint tanks.

Steve Lawrenson, Manufacturing Support Manager at Akzo Nobel, commented: “The Aquamatic sampler has proved very reliable and robust, helping us reduce our effluent charges as part of our overall water usage and environmental programme”.

He added: “We’ve never had any problems with the sampler, but have the peace of mind through Aquamatic’s maintenance service contract that we are sampling to a very high standard and meeting the local discharge consent demanded by our water company.”

Situated outdoors at Akzo Nobel, the floor-mounted Aquamatic sampler incorporates a heater to provide frost protection for stored samples.
