November is typically a busy month in the UK and this year has not been an exception. We have received purchased orders from both the Water and Industrial sectors. Two Realtech UVT monitors have been supplied to a contractor working for Southern Water to monitor a potable water treatment process. We have received a purchase order for a bespoke build from Anglian Water to provide a portable ammonia monitor. Additionally, we have a significant purchase order from a UK Life Science Company, requiring a turn-key project to monitoring their site effluent discharge. This project will require integration of analytical measurement technology with sample preparation into a large walk-in analyser housing – the work will be completed by PPM engineers, early in the New Year. Additional UK Protoc TOC sales were made to a speciality chemical manufacturer in Grangemouth and to two petrochemical plants in Middlesborough. UK commissioning included a new ammonia installation within South West Water for final effluent monitoring and a TOC and phosphate trade discharge monitoring system at BMW, Cowley. We also attended Aquatech in Amsterdam which provided an opportunity to meet with Chemitec and Realtech, to discuss new product development. International sales included our Protoc TOC technology used for surface water monitoring and control.
Protoc 300 sales to Warsaw Airport
BP Techem our distributor in Poland has placed an order for another Protoc 300. This TOC analyser is a replacement instrument for Warsaw International Airport. The Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Poland handling between 40-50% of Poland's air passenger traffic. The original Protoc was supplied in 2005 and the operators were keen to have a like-for-like replacement due to the positive experience and ease of use. The Protoc TOC analyser is used to provide continuous water quality measurement of surface water from the hard-standing discharged to a local water course.
Anglian Water purchase portable ammonia monitor
A portable ammonia monitor has been purchased by Anglian Water to allow for the temporary installation at waste water treatment sites, during winter months. The portable instrument will record data to allow Scientists to gain an in depth understanding of the nitrification treatment process especially where continuous measurement is not currently installed. The instrument has been bespoke built by PPM engineers, to allow for battery replacement in the field and simple data downloading to a USB memory stick.
Thermofisher Scientific order bespoke monitoring analyser kiosk from PPM
A significant purchase order for a walk-in analyser kiosk has been received to provide continuous trade effluent monitoring and control. PPM will pre-install a comprehensive suite of analytical technology covering key water quality parameters – nine in total. The kiosk will have wet and dry sections, complete with lighting and frost protection. Membrane sample filtration will be used to prepare sample for analytical measurement which includes our Protoc TOC, Proam ammonia and Chemitec phosphate analysers. In addition to various probe measurements, an automatic refrigerated sampler will also be installed to take representative discrete samples. All the signals from the instrumentation will connect to the site plc system which will control a divert valve to redirect effluent should the instrumentation detect further treatment is required.
