Siemens Chloroclam® System Receives Water Industry Achievement Award
Siemens Water Technologies is proud to announce that their Chloroclam® water quality monitor has been honoured with a 2011 Water Industry Achievement Award. The Chloroclam system won in the Most Innovative use of an Existing Technology category. The annual awards event now in its 11th year salutes the achievements in the market place over the past year.
The Judges said that the Chloroclam won the award for 'helping the water industry move towards real-time control for networks. They said it is creating a more secure network for customers, improving water quality and helping water companies meet their SIMS targets. It also has the potential to complement devices measuring other parameters.'
The Chloroclam® Water Quality Monitor accesses the water main via the hydrant point, to continually monitor and report chlorine residual data from the water distribution network enabling proactive management. Chloroclam utilises industry standard, high accuracy membrane sensing which does not require the addition of any reagents. The sensor is housed in an innovative cartridge system isolated from the low power electronics and battery compartment. Replacement of membrane, electrolyte solution and re-calibration is carried out by Siemens as part of a service contract. Remote communications are integrated within Chloroclam.
Automatic data upload, via the GPRS network, is carried out multiple times per day, potentially allowing real-time data acquisition and analysis. Utilities can access the water quality data via a web based system to view trending graphs and retrieve information as and when required. Data is easily exported in CSV formatted files compatible with many programs such as Microsoft Excel and can even be downloaded directly into SCADA and ERP systems. Along with the Hydraclam® Water Quality Monitor the Chloroclam forms part of the Siemens Proactive Infrastructure Management solution, to provide utilities with near real time information on chlorine, turbidity, temperature, conductivity and pressure within the networks -- where it matters the most.
Winners of the Water Industry Achievement Awards are selected by an independent judging panel. Winners were recognized at the Water Industry Achievement Awards Dinner on March, 29th in Birmingham.
