ABB to highlight new products and knowledge at WWEM 2010 exhibition

ABB Limited (stands 107 and 108) will be showcasing a selection of its latest instrumentation and analytical equipment and systems at the Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) 2010 exhibition on 10-11th November, The International Centre, Telford.

A wide range of ABB products will be on show, including the new Aztec range of analysers designed for potable water treatment. Built on ABB's new analytical instrument platform, the ABB Aztec 600 Aluminium, Iron, Manganese, Phosphate and Ammonia colorimetric monitors offer enhanced accuracy with simple operation and maintenance.

The Aztec range incorporates a host of features such as automatic two point calibration, self-cleaning functionality and automatic sample dilution. The inherent product design and auto-calibrating features means that maintenance is typically only required annually, compared to every 3 months with some units on the market.

Also on display will be ABB's MCERTified WaterMaster flowmeter. Designed specifically for the water and wastewater market, it features a revolutionary octagonal flow sensor and ABB's innovative VeriMaster verification system.

Accompanying it will be the AquaMaster GSM-SMS electromagnetic flowmeter. Based on the same technology as a mobile phone, the AquaMaster can be contacted using a PC, or through a mobile phone via SMS messaging, providing operators with instant remote access to accurate flow data.

These will be joined by ABB's range of pressure and temperature measurement products for use around water and wastewater treatment processes, plus examples of ABB's recorder products including the SM500F, the world's first field mountable videographic data recorder.

Capable of being installed anywhere, such as a panel, wall or pipe with no additional cost, the SM500F takes recording out of the control room and offers users localised access to operational data. Its fully sealed IP66 and NEMA 4X enclosure provides full protection against water and dust ingress.

The stand will also feature an interactive display demonstrating how ABB's technologies can be integrated to help monitor and control water supplies.
The display features various examples from ABB's instrumentation, drives, motors and low voltage product ranges, all controlled by ABB's latest PLC Automation technology with Profibus and Ethernet communications technology.

The event will also provide the opportunity to see ABB's experts speaking at the main seminar and two practical workshops covering some of the latest issues affecting the water and wastewater industries.

Tony Hoyle, ABB UK Flow Product Manager, will be presenting both a seminar (12.00-12.30pm, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November) and a workshop (2.30 to 3.00pm, Wednesday 10th, Room 5) on MCERTs. The sessions will cover topics such as EPR /PPC permits, Operator Monitoring Assessment (OMA) and the self monitoring of effluent flow.

The workshop will cover regulatory flow monitoring requirements and verification, whilst giving a review of the progress made on these fronts in the UK's industrial and water sectors.

The second workshop, on Thursday 11th November, 1.30-2pm (room 6), will be presented by Steve Donnelly of ABB's Continuous Gas Analysis business. The seminar will provide advice to plant operators that monitor emissions to atmosphere, covering issues such as the importance of selecting the best Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS), the maintenance and operational best practice of CEMS systems and how to meet the demand of current UK and European legislation.

ABB manufactures and supplies a wide range of equipment for controlling, measuring and monitoring water and wastewater treatment processes, for both utilities and industrial applications. These products are backed up by ABB's service team, which provides a range of support options including verification and on site support contracts.
