Aquamatic wastewater sampler helps maintain good environment at Newcastle International Airport

Posted: Friday 30th June 2006

A portable wastewater sampler made by Aquamatic has been helping Newcastle International Airport successfully monitor surface water discharge which it sends periodically to Environment-Agency-approved laboratories for testing.

The largest airport in the North East of England, Newcastle International utilises the Aquamatic sampler to collect and temporarily store wastewater samples for analysis so that any contaminants are safely controlled. During the past four years, this has been particularly effective in the winter, when glycol-based chemicals sometimes have to be applied to aircraft, and when acetate de-icants are used for safety reasons to treat airfield areas.

Helen Hayden, Environmental Co-ordinator at Newcastle International Airport, commented: “The Aquamatic sampler has proved a very durable and reliable piece of equipment, which helps us demonstrate due diligence in environmental monitoring”.

An Aquamatic wastewater sampler is already helping Birmingham International Airport to monitor wastewater discharges by providing a hassle-free facility to gather samples. The equipment ensures compliance with agreed consent limits laid down by Severn Trent Water Ltd.

The world’s first wastewater sampler to achieve compliance with the Environment Agency’s MCERTS Performance Standards for Continuous Water Monitoring systems, the Aquamatic Aquacell P2-COOLBOX has proved its superiority at remote sites or where no power is available. Designed for keeping collected samples at 0-50C, it provides a highly cost-effective and efficient alternative to stationary sampling equipment requiring refrigeration and potentially expensive mains supply installation.
