PPM News - November 2018
The latest water quality measurement news from Pollution & Process Monitoring Ltd
November is a busy month domestically, for new purchase orders and system builds. We received purchase orders form a number of UK water companies and from the industrial sector. Our Proam ammonia monitor has been sold for potable water intake protection, ammonia and nitrate technology has been supplied for waste water process control and conductivity instrumentation installed for inlet monitoring at various waste water inlets. Commissioning of two new Proam ammonia monitors, pre and post tertiary treatment at Wessex Water Trowbridge WwTW also took place. The WWEM exhibition was attended allowing some important face to face discussions with key customers. Meetings included our new Beijing distributor who has just taken delivery of a Proam ammonia analyser for a water monitoring project. The meetings allowed a good transfer of application and product knowledge.
TriOS Nitrate monitors purchased for ground water research project:
Two TriOS nitrate monitors have been purchased for a research project in the UK Cotswolds, to monitor ground water quality. The probe technology equipped with automatic cleaning, will be installed within various boreholes to provide continuous water quality measurement data affected by agricultural activity. The sensors use a reagent-less UV absorption principle with automatic correction for dissolved organics, turbidity and temperature. The monitoring system will be powered a 12VDC battery charged by solar panels and remote data access will also be employed, to minimise site attendance.
South West Water purchase ammonia & nitrate measurement system for waste water process control:
South West Water has purchased a continuous ammonia and nitrate measurement system as part of a treatment upgrade to an existing waste water recycling facility. The instrumentation will be used within the liquor basin to provide real time process control. Automatic cleaning is integrated to maintain the condition of the sensors and minimise biological fouling. Provision has been made for the integration of two more measurements, should they be required at a future date.
UK Fertiliser manufacturer purchases ammonia, nitrate and pH instrumentation:
PPM received a significant purchase order from a large UK fertiliser manufacturer and completed the assembly of a new water quality monitoring system The instrumentation will provide continuous measurement on three key sample streams to report ammonia, nitrate and pH. The sensors will be mounted in three separate sample break-tanks receiving pumped sample flows. All the sensors communicate to a central controller providing local display, user interfacing and outputs to the site telemetry system.
