Proam Ammonia Monitor for intake protection at Water & Drinking Water production sites
The Proam ammonia monitor is manufactured in the UK by PPM and is a simple, compact and reliable analytical instrument suitable for water quality measurement.
The Proam ammonia monitor is a compact, simple and reliable analyser suitable for continuously measuring river and borehole water quality.
The analyser will detect and alarm spillages in real-time to protect water treatment processes from ingress of pollution. Ammonia is a key parameter associated with the pressence of untreated sewage possing an increased risk of pathogens.
The instrument has been extensively installed throughout the water sector with many installations within Severn Trent Water, Wessex Water and Anglian Water. The analyser has also been deployed through out industry particularly for the measurement of surface water.
The Proam instrument is simple to operate and maintain. The design can be used for continuous or intermittent analysis and self-validates measurements against know calibration standards.
The ion selective (gas sensing) measurement technique is ideal for water and waste-water applications and does not suffer cross interference from other dissolved ions in the sample. The dynamic measuring range can be simply adjusted within the range 0 to 500 mg/L as N. Typically the range is configured 0-5.00mg/L as N for intake protection applications.
Whilst the instrument has pinch valve technology and wide bore tubing to minimise the possibility of internal blockage, PPM has also developed sample preparation and delivery systems to compliment the instrument. The sample preparation system removed suspended solids and biology >0.45micron to prevent ingress into the analyser and to minimise the risk of blockage. Maintenance is reduced and measurement reliability is optimised.
