Cost-Effective Pool and Spa Water Quality Monitoring by replacement with pH/ORP Sensors

Sensorex pH/ORP sensors cost-effective direct replacement for effective aquatic, pool and spa water quality monitoring

Sensorex’s cost-effective pH and ORP sensors monitor pH and ORP levels, critical to keeping pool water clean and safe. The Sensorex S465 Series are a direct replacement alternative to Acu-Trol® pH and ORP probes, and the robust S420 Series replace Strantrol® pH and ORP probes. In addition to a reasonable price point, both Series are easy to integrate into existing systems and offer long, reliable service life–ideal for use by both integrators and end users.

Continuously checking the balance of a pool impedes algae growth, reduces surface erosion and increases swimmer enjoyment, without causing any harm to the surrounding environment. In addition to the typically monitored pH levels, monitoring of Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), is one the most reliable and effective ways to ensure the effectiveness of a sanitizer, such as chlorine, in pools and spas. Just as pH levels of commercial pools should be kept at a certain level, ORP levels indicate effective chlorination concentration for killing off bacteria and preventing organism growth.

Sensorex’s advanced sensor technology delivers accurate measurement over a range of 0-14 pH or +/-1000 mV for ORP. Sensors use a higher volume of Sensorex’s proprietary polymer sensor reference gel for longer service life.

Both the S465 Series and S420 Sensor Series employ a ½” NPT connection for easy in line installation or use with existing Acu-Trol® or Strantrol® flow cells, without modification. Advanced signal shielding reduces noise for more accurate communication with process control systems. The S465pH and ORP models are supplied with a BNR connector for quick connection to an aquatic controller, while the S420 models are available with the option of 30 inch or 10 foot cable lengths for easy integration into existing systems.

HWM launches GPRS Pressure Transient Logger that remotely monitors for water hammer

New unit offers cost-effective data transmission and prolonged battery life

HWM has added GPRS data transmission to its pressure transient logging capability. The new GPRS Pressure Transient Logger triggers a capture window around a transient event and transmits this data, keeping costs down and prolonging battery life.

The ‘event window selection’ feature allows operators to send transient alarm information and a selectable window of fast logged data before and after the event. Network transient monitoring is now feasible via remote telemetry rather than manual site surveys. As transients are immediately identified, swift remedial action can be taken to avoid burst and infrastructure damage.

Specifically designed to combat water hammer, the data logger features sampling rates up to 100 times per second to effectively monitor for damaging pressure spikes, which may only last a fraction of a second. Addressing these brief moments of extreme pressure is a major factor in reducing burst water mains. Now that data is immediately available through remote telemetry, swift remedial action can be taken to avoid infrastructure damage.

The sampling rate on the logger’s pressure transient channel extends to 100 times a second and operators can define sampling intervals and transient data capture trigger levels. With the optional addition of flow channels, the unit is able to provide comprehensive transient and general network monitoring.

Supplied in an IP68-rated case, the logger is designed for long-term field deployment. Its 4GB flash memory (SD card) offers storage for up to eight billion readings. Typical battery life is two years with internal batteries at a sampling rate of 25 Hz, one data connection per day and typical event window dial-ins. External HWM battery packs can be added to support more frequent sampling or dial-in rates, or to extend life between battery changes.

For more details about HWM range of products, please contact the Regional Export Manager, Paul Harrison at PHarrison@hwm-water.com

Bajolock® Couplers from Smith Flow Control Protect Workers Operating Systems under Pressure

To prevent accidents when opening couplings under pressure, Smith Flow Control has introduced Bajolock® patented couplers to its product portfolio.

Bajolock® couplers are ideal for use in a wide range of industries where it is common for pipes and systems to be under pressure when couplings are opened. It is often hard to determine the residual pressure in the system, and using conventional couplings can be dangerous. With Bajolock, pressure is caught and automatically equalised; any potential harmful residue material is discharged away from the operator. Bajolock can then be uncoupled easily and safely with a simple twist. It is interchangeable with existing, similar couplers, enabling seamless integration in plant processes.

Smith Flow Control’s Bajolock coupler is designed for use in transfer systems for pressures up to 10 bar (145 psi). It is ideal for a wide range of applications including oil & gas, petrochemical, shipping, pipe, bulk, medical and the food and beverage industry, in addition to road transportation applications.

Dynamic Sampling Accessories Provide Measurement Consistency

Ocean Optics spectroscopy tools ideally suited to inhomogeneous samples

Ocean Optics has introduced a line of spectroscopy accessories that makes dynamic sampling measurements simple and reliable for both solid and liquid samples. Dynamic sampling is a technique where rotational or linear motion is used to measure an “average” signal across the sample, removing localised variance from results and improving measurements of inhomogeneous and irregular samples such as grains, feed and soil.

Ocean Optics offers four dynamic sampling accessories – a diffuse reflectance probe, rotating sampling cup, multiplexer and flow cell – that fit seamlessly with existing UV-Vis and NIR spectrometers and accessories, resulting in a system optimised for the user’s application. Dynamic sampling accessories are ideal for users who take routine measurements of the same sample types or need to measure a large number of different samples frequently.

The Diffuse Reflectance Probe (DR Probe) integrates a light source and collection optics into one unit to measure 45° diffuse reflectance. It is ideal for applications such as colour analysis, material identification and quality monitoring of foods. The DR Probe has rugged, all-metal construction with 40 mm focal length and an integrated, 10,000-hour bulb for extended time between servicing.

Also available for diffuse reflectance measurements is the DynaCup, a rotating device that presents samples to the DR Probe. The rotation allows the probe to scan the sample multiple times to collect a more consistent, representative spectrum of the sample. This method is important with inhomogeneous samples like grains, where variables such as shape, moisture and starch distribution within kernels can vary greatly.

To save sample measurement time and streamline sample processing, the multiplexer accessory is a mechanical actuator that distributes light through 10 customisable channels from a single light source. The multiplexer is useful for any kind of light transmission and optical fibre size. Two models offer a choice between fast positioning, or high repeatability and accuracy of performance. The multiplexer features SMA 905 connections and a USB port for communication and remote control.

For flow applications users can select the DynaFlux, an integrated transmission and absorbance flow cell. DynaFlux accepts standard transmission cells with pathlengths up to 10 mm (sold separately) and a temperature controlled sampling chamber. A programmable timer allows the flow cell pump to run for fixed times with options for continuous flow to analyse large volumes, or stop-flow mode to analyse static samples. DynaFlux is an all-in-one accessory for dynamic sampling of liquids, for both NIR and UV-Vis transmissive measurements.
