Pollution Monitoring for Water Treatment

Chelsea Technologies offer monitoring systems to detect levels of hydrocarbons and bacteria present within abstracted waters to Water Treatment Plants that can impact on the efficiency of operation of the water treatment processes.

Chelsea Technologies’ Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) monitoring systems enable in situ or in-line real-time reporting of a range of hydrocarbon products that may be present within abstracted waters. Systems can be configured to detect, with un-paralleled sensitivity, either highly refined fuels such as BTEX or Benzene, courser refined products such a diesel fuel or crude hydrocarbons.

Likewise Chelsea’s Tryptophan-like fluorescence (TLF) systems enable in situ or in-line real-time reporting of bacteria that may be present within abstracted waters or stored waters after processing. These monitors detect fluorescent proteins that are found within sewage & slurry.

Chelsea Technologies offer both stationary in-line and portable hydrocarbon and bacteria monitoring systems.  In-line monitoring stations systems can be easily fitted at the input to Water Treatment Plants, either connected into a piped system or monitoring within a water trough.

Portable systems are light weight, easy to operate and designed to take into the field to measure either hydrocarbons or bacteria concentrations within the abstracted waters.

These systems provide real-time display and logging of either hydrocarbon or bacteria to inform on water quality.  Useful Red, Amber, Green threshold levels can be easily set up, and the display provides both graphical and numerical formats.  Both these systems include the Chelsea Technologies’ UviLux fluorometer, which is small, low power and easily integrated to other sensor network systems. As well as being very sensitive, these fluorometer sensors are optimised to provide low noise results.

Just launched this  month is the new VLux MiniSonde –   a miniature, cost effective, multi-parameter sensor providing robust data collection for either UV or visible fluorescence monitoring. With integrated corrections for multiple environmental parameters, models are suitable for monitoring BTEX, PAH, Tryptophan and Algae.
