Water is probably the most precious and essential resource in the world. This is why it is of great importance to use it responsibly. Other reasons include energy management, keeping costs down, and complying with established legislations such as the European Water Framework Directive.
To achieve these goals, close monitoring must take place which can be done by measuring a variety of factors such as flow, depth, temperature, and pressure, and metering to determine usage, among other factors. We offer a wide range of sensors and instruments for measuring and logging specific conditions such as temperature, pressure, and salinity to name just a few. Our equipment will enable you to monitor conditions and target any problems efficiently and accurate, whatever your industry.
Identifying dead legs (when water does not move for a period of time in hot water systems) can lead to better piping systems. In addition, eliminating these and ensuring temperatures are acceptable, can substantially reduce the risk of legionella, a harmful bacteria thriving in hot aquatic environments which can cause potentially dangerous diseases.
Specific industries, like that of agricultural growers, need to measure DO (dissolved oxygen) levels to ensure healthy crops. In other industries, measuring leachate (an accumulation of water which has passed through and dissolved or suspended potentially dangerous substances) for the safety of the environment and the inhabitants of the area is of the utmost importance. Moreover in other cases, the amount of waste water flow is key to determine the sizing of the sewage treatment system necessary, and make the required adjustments to comply with demands.

The general public might not be aware of all the measures taken to ensure the safety, effectiveness, and quality in regards to water systems. However, those directly involved in research, facilities management, water providers, growers and waste management industry know all too well how having the adequate measuring instruments is critical to carrying out their jobs effectively.
