New distributor appointed for Central AmericaMultisensor Systems Ltd. is proud to announce that the company A.V. ELECTRONICA INDUSTRIAL PANAMA, S.A, is now our official distributor for the following countries: Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Venezuela.
The company is managed by Pedro Azuaje, an electrical engineer with a vast experience in process automation and water analysis. The company has more than a decade of experience working with the clean water and wastewater sector in Venezuela and has now expanded its presence with an office in Panama.
An MS1200 VOC analyser is already installed in the Panama Canal. The constant transit of vessels results in a high risk of collisions with the banks or structures of the canal and produce an accidental spill of oil. This would compromise the supply of potable water for consumption and general uses in the Canal Zone.
The Canal Authority decided to use the MS1200 system as an early warning system in case of contamination, thus preventing the suspension of the service, high maintenance costs and cleaning tasks that could arise from an oil spill. The instrument is installed in a pumping station about 30 metres from the banks of the Canal from where the water is taken. The water is analysed for the presence of oil and VOCs every 15 minutes and if there is an increase in the level, an alarm is activated and an action is taken. The environment is constantly warm and humid, which is very hostile to all electronic equipment. The MS1200 has performed reliably since installation
Polish distributor Gremes visits Multisensor and Oil in Water Monitor installation.
Between 5th and 7th of March, Multisensor Systems were very happy to host Patryk and Krzysztof from Gremes, our distributor in Poland ( www.gremes.pl ). Over the course of three days they received full commercial, technical and scientific training on the Multisensor range of products such as the Ammonia Monitor (MS3500) for raw wastewater, the THM Monitor (MS2000), - for post chlorinated water and the Oil in Water Monitor (MS1200) .
A particular interesting part of the training was a visit to a UK water company where an MS1200 has been providing protection for a drinking water intake for two years.
The unit was installed after a pollution event created some problems for the water treatment plant. The water company chose the MS1200 Oil in Water Monitor due to its proven performance, low operating costs and high reliability.
The instrument is installed in an outbuilding (around 100 metres from the river where the water is abstracted) together with other instruments (turbidimeter, pH etc…) and all their readings are recorded and sent to a central location.
The time the water takes to reach the water treatment plant provides enough time for the operators to act to protect assets and customers in the case of a contamination event in the river. The river runs through some heavily industrialised areas where there are chemical and petrochemical plants.
Gremes were able to appreciate the factors which make the MS1200 an ideal choice for the Water Company and the practical considerations of such an installation. This enables them to support customers in Poland in choosing the right product for their application and providing a high level of technical support.
Multisensor VOC Analyser Support in FranceMultisensor Systems are happy to announce that we have recently appointed an exclusive distributor who will support customers in France.
Marking a major step in the European development of Multisensor, the cooperation with the strong and dynamic “Air & Eau Systèmes” will allow customers in France to benefit from our contactless measurement technology to report on-line:
- Hydrocarbons and VOCs in water,
- TriHaloMethanes in drinking water and
- Ammonia in Raw Wastewater intakes.
Preliminary discussions have emphasised the need for a reliable way to detect VOCs in water, both for drinking water and industrial applications. Some of the most common compounds that we can detect can be found below:
- DiChlorobenzene 1,2
- DiChlorobenzene 1,3
- DiChlorobenzene 1,4
- Ethyl Benzene
- TriMethylBenzene 1,2,4
- TriMethylBenzene 1,3,5
- TriChloroBenzene 1,2,4
- Xylene m
- Xylene o
- Xylene p
- Range of solvents
- Penetrating Oils
- Some cutting fluids
Thanks to the contactless technology, Multisensor products allow customers at water treatment plants, industrial sites and water treatment facilities to ensure that their systems are working correctly, their filters and RO membranes are not damaged by oils and hydrocarbons and that their processes are properly balanced.
If you have any enquiry about an application and you are based in France, please get in touch with us or with our distributor, Air & Eau Systèmes, http://www.air-eau.com .
How a common interest in THMs led to a Turkish distributor…As Multisensor’s successful distributor recruitment campaign continues, we are coming across a wide variety of interesting projects. The latest concerns the measurement of THMs (Trihalomethanes) in drinking water plants in Turkey.
It’s now widely known that THMs in potable water, also known as disinfection-by-products, are related to an increased risk of cancer in people. For this reason governments, in countries where the use of chlorine is widespread, are now taking action to detect, monitor and reduce the amount of THMs in the water at the end of the water treatment process and in the distribution network.
We have been in contact with a motivated and professional company that operates in the Turkish market: Tesla Ölçü Kontrol Sistemleri ve Çevre Teknolojileri San. Tic. Ltd. Şti
After some initial discussions it was clear that there’s a strong need in the Turkish market for a system that can detect trihalomethanes at low concentrations, without the use of expensive reagents and at a reasonable price. Traditional solutions for this kind of measurement includes GC- MS systems (Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry) that are usually extremely expensive and only suitable for sophisticated laboratory applications.
We and Tesla believe that our THM monitor, the MS2000, is the ideal instrument to tackle the THM issue around Turkey and we are today proud to announce that a formal partnership has been established between the two companies.
If you are an operator in the Turkish market and you want to know how Multisensor and Tesla can help you with your:
- Oil in water / hydrocarbons in water
- THMs such as Chloroform, Bromoform, Dichlorobromethane, Dibromochloromethane
- VOC in gaseous form
- Ammonia in Wastewater
problems, please get in touch with us and we will do our best to assist.
Multisensor Systems Appoints a Distributor for PolandWe are proud to announce that Multisensor Systems has appointed GREMES as our official distributor for the territory of Poland.
GREMES and its highly specialised team of engineers is the ideal business partner for Multisensor Systems to support water and waste water treatment operations in Poland with reliable, low maintenance water monitoring instrumentation.
Particular interest has been expressed with regards to the Oil in Water detection system (MS1200) and also to the Ammonia monitor for raw waste water (MS3500).
In recent years, following a rapid industrialisation and a subsequent increase in environmental problems and awareness, there’s been an increased need for a reliable way to detect oil spills and pollution in rivers, lakes and reservoirs and improve the overall quality of the water. Multisensor and GREMES, working hand in hand with all stakeholders in the water supply and treatment network can fulfil that need.
GREMES and its team are receiving full product and service training at our office in Manchester, so if you are an operator in the water sector and would like to know how Multisensor and GREMES can help you with your pollution, hydrocarbon and ammonia problems, please get in touch with us.
