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.
Multisensor appoints a distributor for Czech Republic and Slovak Republic
Multisensor Systems is proud to announce the appointment of ECM ECO Monitoring, a.s., Bratislava as our official distributor for Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. With more than 25 years of experience, a dedicated workforce and a highly technical sales team, ECM ECO Monitoring ranked as the best partner to represent Multisensor Systems, whose Oil in Water Monitor systems are the market leaders in the United Kingdom.
ECM ECO Monitoring will focus on developing the market for the MS1200 Oil in Water Monitor, as well as the on-line Ammonia Monitor for Raw Waste Water, the MS3500. Both use Multisensor’s contactless measurement system, which utilises electronic nose technology to provide a non-fouling technique to provide a robust measurement system.
Various technologies to detect hydrocarbons and oils have been tested in the Slovak and Czech market throughout the years, however, the results have always been poor. Many of the traditional methods (i.e. optical based systems) suffer from fouling and are affected by the levels of turbidity and suspended solids. All these issues are completely removed with a contactless technology.
If you are an operator of a water treatment works in Slovak Republic or Czech Republic, please feel free to get in touch with us and we will help you with your application.
Multisensor Appoints a Distributor in RomaniaWe are proud to announce that we have recently appointed Katalin Nohse Srl. as distributor for Romania. With more than 20 years of experience in the Romanian market, Katalin Nohse Srl., is the perfect partner to support our growing customer base in the country.
Katalin Nohse will support Multisensor’s on-line products below:
Oil in water monitor for the Romanian market
It is clear that contamination from hydrocarbons (oil in water, VOC) and other pollutants is a growing concern in Romania, above all in the Danube area and around big cities that rely heavily on rivers and boreholes for their water needs.
A recent example that highlights the need for monitoring for pollution events is the incident at the essential oil factory in Orastie, which led to the pollution of Mures River and the Orastie stream.
In October 2017, research was carried out involving 15 of the 42 municipal water companies in Romania: brochures were handed to the relevant people and discussions were held. The feedback Multisensor Systems got from this initial research was that there is awareness of problems associated with oil in water and other pollutants.
A VOC monitor that can measure volatile organic compounds such as benzene, methanol, naphthalene, isopropanol etc. will allow the operators of potable water treatment plants to receive an early warning in the case of a pollution event and save money for costly repairs and the costs of prosecution and to enhance the health of customers by improving the overall quality of the water.
Ammonia monitor for the Romanian market
Discussions with operators of waste water treatment plants also highlighted the need in the market for an ammonia monitor that is able to work at the inlet of a wastewater treatment plant (raw wastewater).
As in many other countries in Europe, operators have to rely on weekly/monthly lab tests to determine the level of ammonia at a specific point in time and then, based on this result, they will set up the plant to deal with this level of ammonia.
This process has a number of pitfalls:
- It is time consuming for the operator
- The water treatment plant will rely on a measurement per week/month
- In order to deal with peaks of ammonia, the whole plant will have to run in such a way to cope with these peaks and still be within the regulatory requirements
- This usually leads to huge waste of energy and chemicals
For all these reasons, the need of an on-line ammonia monitor has always been strongly felt by the operators who want a tool to reduce the energy costs of running the plant and a way to be more proactive in their water treatment.
Looking forward an interesting 2018
In 2018 Multisensor Systems and Katalin Nohse will work together to make sure that the Romanian market is well supported and that potable and wastewater plants alike have access to the best possible contactless technologies to face the challenges of the water industry.
