September was a busy month for engineered systems, with PPM engineers completing a number of small GRP enclosures to contain turbidity instrumentation for use within a major UK Water Company. The enclosures include automatic compressed air cleaning of the turbidity sensor to maintain the condition of the optics and ensure reliable measurement for the waste-water final effluent applications. The PVC analyser panels have also been prepared for a final effluent monitoring scheme at BMW, Cowley which will include the Protoc TOC and Chemitec phosphate analysers. Our Protoc TOC analyser technology has been supplied to the UK energy market and other seas to an Indian Refinery. Additionally, the Realtech UVT instrument has been supplied to control a potable water treatment process to Southern Water. Commissioning activities included installations within British Sugar of an analyser kiosk containing TOC, ammonia, pH and Turbidity instrumentation which measures multiple sample streams.
Boral Bina Refinery in India install Protoc TOC technology
Forbes Marshal our Indian distributor, has just taken delivery of a Protoc 300 TOC instrument which has been ranged 0-10ppm. The analyser will be installed at the BORAL Bina Refinery for a condensate monitoring application. The analyser is just part of a larger integrated project to be engineered by Forbes Marshall. The Protoc TOC instrument included factory witness testing overseen by an inspector from Lloyds Register. The inspector indorsed the paperwork on behalf of Engineer's India Limited (EIL) who are coordinating the project, including the Quality Assurance Plan (QAP).
Southern Water purchase UVT instrumentation
A Realtech M3000 UVT instrument with automatic cleaning, is to be installed at a water treatment facility in Southern Water. The instrument continually measures the UV transmission at 254nm which is influenced by the physical and chemical constituents in the potable water. The reagent-less analyser, compares two different path-lengths in the same measurement, to compensate for potential calibration drift and cuvette fouling. The technique therefore provides the user with a high level of confidence in the reported result.
Protoc TOC analyser installed at a UK Gas Storage Facility
After more than ten years of reliable, continuous operation, a gas storage terminal on the north-east UK coast, has returned to PPM for an upgrade to their existing Protoc TOC system. The on-line monitoring application required measurement of two sample streams; the inlet and outlet to a reed-bed treatment facility. The continuous analysis provides the necessary assurance of successful waste-water treatment and also identifies the load entering the treatment plant. The new Protoc Spyder & Web TOC monitor has been supplied complete with the PPM membrane filter technology, providing sample preparation. The Protoc TOC analyser system was installed into a new GRP kiosk, commissioned and installed by PPM engineers.
