Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, United Kingdom, 2009/01/28 - Specialist electrochemical sensor manufacturer Analytical Technology announces the introduction of its complete range of chlorine monitors offering unique benefits for water and wastewater applications.
Based on the successful Q45H monitor platform, Analytical Technology's diverse range of instruments enables compliance with stringent UK and European water regulations.
Analytical Technology (analyticaltechnology.com) supplies a range of gas and water monitors for a variety of applications, and is fast becoming the de facto company for chlorine monitoring. Analytical Technology has an installed base of over 7000 chlorine monitors, and can supply the appropriate monitor for any water source found in the UK. The company's portfolio of instruments includes free chlorine monitors, total chlorine monitors and combined chlorine monitors.
The UK water industry is rigorously monitored and water companies are constantly seeking timely and cost-effective methods of compliance. The government has set legal standards for drinking water and wastewater and existing regulations are constantly being updated and changed. In many cases, UK water companies meet their regulatory obligations by monitoring their own output levels, requiring self assessment of water quality, supplying up-to-date data and submitting to regular inspection. Failures in compliance can lead to legal proceedings for consistent failure, fines and bad publicity.
Over 95% of Analytical Technology's innovative Q45H chlorine monitors operate without reagents on all the water sources found in the UK. The monitors employ the unique A10/62/62 electrochemical-membraned chlorine sensor to eliminate sensor fouling which can occur in contaminated samples and prolong the lifespan of the monitors. This membrane-covered polarographic sensor with an enhanced response at high pH does not require the addition of costly chemical reagents.
Dr. Michael Strahand, General Manager Europe at Analytical Technology, comments: "It is imperative that water companies in the UK and Europe have access to cost-effective instrumentation that is capable of meeting the stringent regulations governing the industry. Analytical Technology is committed to growing our portfolio of effective and reliable Q45H chlorine monitors to offer a complete chlorine measurement solution for water and wastewater applications.
