Industrial Monitoring

Applications from food processing to heavy industrial waste water

Industrial Monitoring

Water plays an essential role in industrial facilities. Whether it is used for manufacturing or cleaning processes, the process water has to be purified before it can be discharged into the sewer system or into natural waters. Online monitoring of the water quality allows an ongoing 24-hour process control, reducing product loss, optimizing the cleaning process, saving operating costs and meeting regulatory requirements.

Industrial waste water is often extreme in its composition, for example high in acids, solids and other parameters or radically changing temperature. The spectro::lyser titanium pro and the spectro::lyser industrial are especially designed for heavy-duty applications. They are extremely resistant on the outside and contain innovative high-tech on the inside.

The s::can industrial product range is the ultimate solution for industries such as textile, galvanic, tanneries, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, food and beverages and petro-chem. Due to its durable housing made from high-quality titanium and its enhanced specifications, the spectro::lyser titanium pro it is also ideal for monitoring coastal seawater, brackish water and water intakes at desalination plants.

The spectro::lyser industrial is safe to be used in in areas with an explosive atmosphere according to RL 2014/34/EU, TÜV-A16 ATEX and therefore the ultimate solution for industrial waste water and sewer applications.

Save operating costs

Many industrial users are interested in the optimization of production processes that can be achieved through spectrometry. This could be an immediate identification of malfunctions in the production process and quick initiation of appropriate countermeasures. Thus, the achieved reduction of product loss and reduced consumption of operating material helps to lower production costs.

Another type of application is the detection of product spills, such as hydrocarbon alarms for the petrochemical industry. Spectrometers are used, for instance, to monitor total hydrocarbons and benzene concentrations down to levels as low as 10 ppb. This makes it easier to meet regulatory requirements and minimize surcharge fees.

The use of the online spectrometer can also be used for profiling the spread of contaminants in groundwater at industrial sites, by inserting the instruments into boreholes and recording concentrations at various depths in the groundwater.

Coagulation Control: s::can sensors combined with process control software can provide feed forward coagulant dose control to fully optimize operations. This results in significant operational cost savings and therefore a quick return on investment of the system.
