WTW Italy upgrade Technoparco TOC installation
Our Italian representative has sold a micro-Spyder & Web TOC analyser system to monitor effluent from a multi-faceted industrial park. The instrument is to replace the existing Protoc 200 installation supplied more than eight years ago. The original sampling system will still be utilised and once the original Protoc 200 analyser has been refurbished, it too will be put back in to commission.
Water reclaim identified for cost saving
Atlas equipment of Taiwan has purchased a Protoc 300 TL analyser enabling demonstrations to be performed to the local electronics industry requiring technology to reclaim pure water. The cost to generate pure water is considerable so efficient consumption has become a priority in recent years. The Protoc instrument, configured for trace level measurement can continuously monitor pure water process streams, to waste only contaminated water and reclaim good quality pure water. Short term demonstration can quickly identify the considerable cost savings, generated by reduced water consumption, allowing the case to be made for permanent installation.
Achema 2009 proves an outstanding success!
PPM attended the Achema exhibition for the first time as an exhibitor this year and where supported by CCS our German distributor. The exhibition was held in Frankfurt over a five day duration and brought together an array of instrument manufacturers from all over the world covering all aspects of water and gaseous monitoring. The exhibition is on a scale that dwarfs any similar trade exhibitions held in the UK and is extremely well attended. We received enquires from many end users and also prospective distributors that will increase our global exposure.
MCERTS equipment specified
Rohm Haas UK Ltd at Jarrow has taken delivery of an analyser house containing TOC and pH analysers certified to meet the MCERTS standard. Two Protoc 300 analysers connected to a Spyder touch screen have been configured as a paired system to enable maximum uptime and 100% data collection. Additionally triplication of pH measurement has also been integrated into this compliance monitoring system. The instrumentation provides continuous measurement and control of actuated valves to prevent accidental release of contamination that may have entered surface water discharge to the River Tyne.
OMA-3 introduced to promote best practise
The Environment Agency has introduced Operator Monitoring Assessment (OMA version 3) to point score industry regulated by EPR (formally IPPC). The point scoring system which was originally introduced to assess Operators for stack gas emissions, has now been extended to consider aqueous discharges. The site audit can only award maximum points for monitoring installations certified to meet the MCERTS standard since the EA has argued that the Operator must demonstrate that the instrumentation used to control and monitor site processes has been shown to be “fit for purpose”.
Anglian Water selects Ammolytplus for ammonium measurement
Following a rigorous selection process, involving extended site trialing alongside many other manufacturers, PPM has been awarded a contract to supply further ammolytplus instrumentation to Anglian Water. The instrumentation will be used to directly measure the ammonium concentration in activated sludge treatment processes. This measurement can be used to optimise the control of activated sludge process, reduce energy consumption and save operational costs. The installation at Charlton near Luton has further proved the reliability of the design allowing unattended forward control since installation during November 2008. PPM has this month now received orders for dual control at Linton-Linslade and also for Chantry WwTW.
