Badger Meter is expanding our smart water solutions by integrating advanced instrumentation technologies, including flow measurement, temperature, pressure and water quality parameters. The acquisitions of Analytical Technology, Inc. (ATi) and s::can GmbH, two innovators of water quality monitoring solutions, establish a comprehensive water quality monitoring offering that is transforming the water industry and enhancing how users manage their water systems.
Now, data from advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems can also be used for water quality surveillance and response systems (SRS). This helps operation managers monitor their system for abnormalities and respond to problems immediately to minimize potentially dangerous outcomes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued guidance on how this data can help monitor and manage water quality by generating alerts for system contamination, tampering or changes in flow, temperature and pressure. Combining water quality monitoring with AMI and SRS provides full visibility and valuable insights.
Water quality monitoring, from source to tap, is vital for the safe and efficient production and distribution of potable water. The goal of monitoring raw and potable water quality is to prevent risk to human health and the environment, as well as comply with drinking water standards and regulations.
Many of the world’s largest water companies rely on solutions from ATi and s::can for intake protection, process control, disinfection and event detection, and leverage their products to monitor pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), conductivity, turbidity, total organic carbon (TOC), nitrate (NO3) and many more parameters.
Monitoring wastewater throughout collection, treatment and delivery provides continuous data, enabling greater process control, ensuring regulatory compliance and offering cost efficiencies. Every step of the process must be monitored to produce high-quality effluent and minimize the energy use associated with treatment.
ATi and s::can products are employed in a wide array of applications, ranging from municipal pre-treatment programs to wastewater treatment discharge monitoring to industrial effluent compliance.
Process water preparation is critical to the outcome of many industrial and petrochemical applications, such as metal finishing, chemical feed, process control and effluent treatment. Water quality monitoring solutions enable users to monitor process water for 24/7 control, optimize the cleaning process, save operating costs and meet regulatory requirements.
ATi offers expertise in electrochemical sensor technology. Its gas detection systems are used in applications ranging from heavy industrial processes to semiconductor manufacturing. These systems are vital to maintaining safe working environments by monitoring for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), hydrogen fluoride (HF), chlorine, ammonia (NH3) and phosphine (PH3).
The s::can industrial product range allows a continuous monitoring of important parameters such as TSS, COD, BOD and H2S. This product range also helps to reduce product loss, optimize the cleaning process, save operating costs and meet regulatory requirements for industries such as textile, galvanic, tanneries, petrochemical and pulp and paper.
Improving water quality is an essential environmental responsibility. Continuous monitoring of natural water sources, such as rivers, lakes and groundwater, provides the safest and highest quality drinking water and aids in early detection of substances that can harm our environment and health. Monitoring also helps identify the level of nitrates, organics and turbidity in water sources so users understand how to treat the water and can optimize the process.
ATi and s::can products enable online water quality monitoring for applications from river to seawater. These products prevent unsafe concentrations of chemicals and require minimal maintenance as no consumables or chemicals are used.
Water plays a key role in many pharmaceutical processes. It is a vital component of a product or is the media in which chemical reactions take place.
ATi works with some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical brands and providers of pure water production systems to measure dissolved ozone, dissolved gases and toxic gases as well as the conductivity and pH of pharmaceutical-grade water.
Products from ATi and s::can also are found at veterans hospitals around the world, where they are used to monitor water quality and protect public health.
In the food and beverage industry, water is a key component, not only of products but also waste streams.
Water quality monitoring products from ATi allow for the disinfection of process and wash water for cross-contamination prevention, detection of NH3 breakthrough in chilled water used in refrigeration, and measurement of parameters such as pH, DO, NH3 and total suspended solids (TSS) for optimum control of food and beverage processes.
s::can products are also popular in the food and beverage industry, enabling the real-time detection of parameters such as TSS, chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and NO3. These products are frequently used in the prevention of product loss, optimization of processes and chemical dosing, conformance to regulations and minimization of surcharge fees.
