At the 7th Annual SWAN Conference 2017 in London, England, s::can demonstrated how water quality safety can be ensured in smart water networks.
Throughout the two-day event, 220 attendees from 31 countries took the opportunity to exchange ideas about cutting-edge industry issues while focusing on creating resilient and smart water and wastewater systems. Engaging sessions and roundtable discussions covered such vital topics as: customer engagement, water quality safety, water loss resilience, innovation and investment, smart wastewater, cybersecurity, and much more.
s::can as the technology leader in on-line water quality measurement and sponsor of the SWAN Conference welcomed visitors to its stand and exhibited solutions fitting to the needs of smart water networks. As a versatile terminal for data acquisition and station control the con::cube was shown. In combination with moni::tool it is a powerful terminal for compact station control. The spectro::lyser measures the entire absorption spectrum and is used by many drinking water providers all over the world as a pivotal component in their raw water monitoring. Also the i::scan was presented - the miniature multi-parameter spectrophotometer probe which combines the high performance of a multi wavelength spectrophotometer with even lower costs than simple photometers.
On the second day of the SWAN conference Brendt Thompson, General Manager of s::can USA, gave a presentation about water quality measurement and shared his comprehensive knowledge about ensuring water quality safety. Using a real case, he showed how the city of Columbus in Ohio, USA, monitors raw surface water quality with s::can. Early warning technologies enabled Columbus to predict a nitrate event in their drinking water and allowed the city to be proactive and transparent. The SWAN Conference proved to be a valuable meeting point once again. The event enabled a rich exchange and interesting discussions about the latest trends in the water industry.
