PPM delivers five final effluent monitors to Yorkshire Water
Following an extensive product evaluation, Yorkshire Water has selected PPM to supply five engineered WTW - IQ Sensor Net systems using the direct measurement Ammolyt ammonium sensor. The instrumentation has been pre-engineered into small GRP kiosks and includes automatic compressed air cleaning. The pilot scheme encompassing five sites around the York area will further assess the effectiveness of the technology as a simple, low cost effluent alarm system.
Artic Paper Company commissions Protoc Spyder & Web system
Pomeko Systems, our Polish distributor has recently commissioned a Protoc Spyder & Web analyser measuring TOC at the Artic Paper Company based near the city of Kotrzyn. The instrument is measuring raw influent into the waste water treatment works to identify peak organic loads that left unchecked could otherwise affect the treatment process and the quality of effluent discharged to the river Odra.
Columbian contractor purchases Protoc 300 TOC analyser
Edospina located in Bogotá, Columbia have placed an order for a Protoc 300 on-line TOC monitor. The analyser is to be supplied as a compliance monitor for a discharge from an industrial process to a local water course.
New Protoc 300 has UK & international success
Since the formal launch of the Protoc 300 which earlier this year replaced the Protoc 200 model, orders have been received for applications transcending a range of industrial sectors. In addition to sales to UK industries spanning the chemical, food and beverage manufacturers, instruments have been supplied to France to monitor airport runoff; to the Czech Republic to monitor a sugar refinery and most recently to Korea for high strength effluents.
