Abstraction from rivers, reservoirs or bore holes should be protected from accidental, malicious, or naturally occurring pollutants, in order to safeguard both process integrity and customer safety. Envitech supplies a variety of water monitoring instruments which protect people and processes . These include Floating and soluble oil monitors , on line algae monitors capable of detecting total and blue-green algae, fish, algae, bacterial and Daphnia toximeters for non specific toxin detection, and in situ multi wavelength UV/VIS spectral absorption detection for specific compound fingerprinting.
Envitech, in conjunction with a major UK contractor, have developed a rugged portable turbidity monitor for attachment to distribution mains when flushing after remedial works, thus minimising time and water wastage.
Our remit was to develop a rugged, portable flow-cell design with cost-effective and robust data-logging. This was achieved using a flow-cell with integrated sensor, and using a transmitter with integrated SD card data logging (previous instrumentation required a laptop to be connected during flushing to record data).
UV254 and COD/TOC surrogates are useful on line tools in water treatment processes for: Early warning of disinfection by-product formation; Detection of accidental or intentional drinking water contamination; Detection of GAC filter break through; Membrane rupture detection; UV Dose control & Abstraction quality assessment. In addition multiparameter detection for Cl, turbidity, ORP and pH are essential for successful operation. Envitech can supply a variety of instruments to meet these water monitoring needs.
