Analytical Technology's Turbidity and pH Systems.
Under the new regulations, all European food and beverage manufacturers must demonstrate that they are implementing the "Best Available Techniques" (BAT) to control water emissions and provide a high level of protection to the environment as a whole. ATi's AutoClean range of monitors, including suspended solids/turbidity and pH, is designed to meet the specific needs of industrial water treatment for reliable measurements, ensuring any water emissions are not harmful to the environment.
Suspended soids/turbidity is a general indicator of the optical clarity of water, and is defined as the amount of light scattered from the particle in a solution. With ATi's D15/76, suspended solids/turbidity measurements can be made from 0-4NTU to 0-4000NTU or 0-10mg/l to 0-10,000mg/l, eliminating the need for separate high and low range instruments.
ATi's Q25 pH sensors used in the Q45P AutoClean pH monitor can be used by food manufacturers to check that the pH level of any water emissions are satisfactory to the IPPC regulations. The differential pH sensor is resistant to fouling and chemical fouling and gives long periods of maintenance free operation.
Dr Michael Strahand, General Manager Europe at ATi. Comments: "The introduction of this new legislation will have a massive impact on all food and beverage manufacturers as they will be forced to focus more on their water emissions. At ATi we can simplify the transition by providing a range of instruments which can monitor all water emissions and prove to the Environment Agency that the company is not releasing any harmful effluent into the environment."
