New range of on-line and portable water quality monitoring systems

Posted: Monday 5th January 2015

“We’ve just launched an exciting new range of on-line and portable monitoring systems which provides significant advances in monitoring key parameters within the Water Industry,” said Chelsea’s Justin Dunning. Addressing the management of both water supply and water recovery plants, we now have the following systems available:

Bacti-Station & Bacti-Wader – These systems provide real-time highly sensitive measurements for assessing bacteria levels in water. This is achieved by detecting UV Tryptophan fluorescence, which has been shown to correlate with bacterial levels. An on-line version for use by laboratory managers, process scientists and engineers is available plus with a portable in situ version for use in the field. Applications include: Faecal Indicator (FI) monitoring, assessment of bathing and shellfish waters, filter bed management, groundwater quality monitoring, plant loading assessments from river abstractions, river pollution surveillance monitoring, point source pollution surveys, farm run-off detection & tracking plus combined sewage overflow (CSO) event detection.

BOD-Station & BOD-Wader - These systems allow water process engineers to assess real-time levels of Biological Oxygen Demand in water systems either on-line or in situ. Applications include BOD loading to Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW), monitoring efficacy of separate processing tanks within WWTWs, assessment of WWTW outflow compliance and monitoring industrial effluent discharge into surface waters.

Algae-Station & Algae-Wader – These systems provide real-time display of key chlorophyll parameters either on-line or in situ. Applications include continuous monitoring in water treatment plants, taste & odour issues, early warning of bloom detection, monitoring spatial and temporal changes in algae class composition plus long-term water quality monitoring.

Oil-Station & Oil-Wader – These systems provide real-time measurements of dissolved Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons either on-line for use in a process control environment or as a portable in situ system for use in the field. They are ideal for abstraction point monitoring, hydrocarbon detection in stored waters, hydrocarbon monitoring within ports & coastal areas, pollution tracking in streams & estuaries plus road & airport run-off pollution monitoring.

Cross-Check – is a portable sensing system that allows surveyors and regulators to detect foul water contamination in surface water drains and track the source of the misconnection. This is achieved using UV fluorescence to detect either Tryptophan, which correlates with faecal contamination, and/or Optical Brighteners associated with household detergents.
