The continuous increase of the risk associated with water source contamination (rivers, lakes, aquifers, boreholes, reservoirs) means that more water companies are looking for an effective way to detect oil in water contamination at their intakes, or indeed, other chemical and hydrocarbon pollution.
While there are various technologies and approaches to this problem, it is important for operators to focus on some important characteristics that an oil in water analyser should have, irrespective of the technology employed.
IEEE P2520 Seminars on Fundamentals of Odor Monitoring & Analysis
Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science
The University of Manchester, UK
Recent advances in sample handling techniques for traces gases and odors are examined as part of analytical workflow for various analytical methods including “electronic nose systems”. Classic approaches for headspace analysis as well as advanced methods of sample enrichment and dynamic separation are considered and summarized. The efficiency of application of different sampling methods for specific analytical tasks is discussed. Special attention is paid to the analysis of present trends of searching the approaches aimed at replacing time-consuming and expensive sample preparation procedures with alternative techniques, including development of sensors arrays with adaptive selectivity profiles, creation of sensor interfacial architectures with tunable adsorption properties, advanced experimental data coding and use of classic spectroscopic methods for “virtual” sensor array formation.
Depending on the type of the assigned objectives, the tasks for sample preparation for analysis are usually as follows:
formation of headspace (a gaseous or vapor environment that represents component composition of the object under investigation)
sample enrichment, preconcentration, etc. (at low concentration of the targeted components)
filtering and separation (to release target components, separate dominant components, provide separation in time of different components, etc.). Each of these tasks will be discussed.
Expo Apa at the Palace of Parliament in Ionescu Hall
September 2019, Bucharest, Romania
In September Multisensor Systems Ltd together with their Romanian distributor, took part to the exhibition "Expo Apa 2019" in Bucharest, Romania at the Palace of Parliament in Ionescu Hall. The exhibition was a big success with a lof of interest in the ammonia monitor and a presentation on the topic by the CEO Bradlee Weaterton.
In September Multisensor System took part to Jasis 2019 Exhibition in Japan with its Japanese distributor, DAIKI. the focus of the exhibition has been the MS3500 ammonia monitor for raw wastewater as well as the MS1200 oil in water monitor.
The exhibition lasted three days with customers approaching us from the food and drink sector, from steel plants, water treatment plants and gas plants. Each customer had an application that Multisensor Systems' products can address.
In July 2019 the MS3500 ammonia analyzer featured on Dutch Television as part of a documentary on innovative water treatment technologies. Thanks to the support of our Dutch distributor, Technische Alliantie, the MS3500 has now been seen by tens of thousands of people all over the Netherlands.
The video describes how the ammonia analyzer is used to measure levels of ammonia in a wastewater plant, using a contactless technology, based on the e-nose sensor and Henry's Law.
"This is a great advantage for the operators who don't need to worry about expensive cleaning routines associated with traditional ISE sensors."
