Domestic sales have been very buoyant this May. Anglian Water has placed additional purchase orders for final effluent ammonia monitoring at three sites, Wessex Water have procured four final effluent turbidity systems and United Utilities has also purchased a low flow - bespoke turbidity monitoring system.
Additionally, we have supplied our Protoc TOC analyser technology to Birmingham Airport and we have received purchase orders for trace DO measurement for use within a UK particle accelerator, turbidity monitoring at a Scottish sea farm pilot treatment plant and dissolved oxygen measurement at a major UK Diary. Internationally, we have supplied three Protoc TOC analysers ranged 0-10 PPM to India and a portable turbidity monitoring system to Indonesia.
Final effluent ammonia monitoring system delivered to Anglian Water
Three additional final effluent ammonia monitors, using the Proam ammonia technology have been purchased for AWS Louth, Ulceby and North Somercoates WwTW. The bespoke build for Louth WwTW was completed ahead of schedule and delivered to site within 4 weeks of receiving the purchase order.
The analysers complete with frost protection and preformed pipework, were pre-installed within a GRP enclosure. A second GRP enclosure has been provided with the membrane filtration and sample acquisition system to also be mounted on another Unistrut frame, fabricated by PPM. The M&E contractor will complete the site installation work to subsequently allow PPM to commission the instrumentation.
Birmingham Airport install four new Protoc 300 TOC Analysers
Four new Protoc 300 TOC analysers have been supplied to Birmingham Airport, to replace three existing Protoc TOC instruments, supplied around 12 years ago and one old BOD monitor. The decision to place the repeat order with PPM was heavily influenced by the service support provided over the past 12 years, contributing to reliable operation of the instruments.
The Protoc TOC monitors are linked to penstock valves which allow BIA to take prompt action in the event of any changes to the quality of the surface water run-off. Should the instruments detect the presence of glycol or other organic contaminants, flows can be diverted to sewer. Conversely, when the water quality meets the stringent standard, surface water flows can be returned to the local water course, greatly reducing discharge costs.
United Utilities places order for bespoke turbidity monitoring system
Another engineered Turbidity system has been ordered by United Utilities and will be commissioned early next month. The specially engineered system allows reliable Turbidity measurement at the smallest of waste water treatment plants which only have minimal or intermittent effluent discharge (without creating any false alarms or instrument fail conditions).
There are a number of these bespoke systems now installed in several of the major Water Companies and feedback on the performance, has been very good.
