The Electro-Chemical Devices HCA1 Portable Colorimetric Chlorine Test Kit is suitable for testing free and total chlorine in drinking water, wastewater, environmental waters, cooling towers and rinse waters in the food and beverage industry.
While Australia is the driest populated continent on Earth, growing urban populations, economic growth and increased agricultural production are all expected to increase water usage further in the coming decades.
Michell Instruments has introduced a portable verification system for humidity probes — the HygroCal100. Weighing just 3.2 kg and with a battery life of up to 8 h, the unit is designed with portability in mind.
Microcystest is a test for the detection of microcystins and nodularins (hepatotoxins) in water. The kit is based on the protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) activity inhibition by microcystins and is therefore able to detect the potential toxicity caused by microcystins in water samples.
The 2015 Healthy Waterways Report Card recognises the increasing amount of sediment entering South East Queensland waterways as the number one issue affecting water quality.
Over the past year, rainfall totals dipped to their lowest on record for parts of Australia.
Researchers from UNSW have used water-tracing technology in the Sydney Basin to determine how groundwater moves in the different layers of rock below the surface.
The advancement of chemical sensing techniques has enabled online monitors to be applied in analysing and controlling the fluoride concentration in water. An understanding of their limitations, however, is essential in ensuring the validity of the results and the capability to comply with regulatory standards.
Gems Sensors & Controls DipTape level indicators are a simple way to measure the liquid level in storage tanks and IBCs. They are suitable for quick, periodic readouts where power is unavailable or undesirable.
The Aztec 600 fluoride analyser provides accurate measurement of fluoride concentrations to enable precise control of water fluoridation. The analyser measures total solubilised fluoride using a combination fluoride ion-selective electrode.
Roboticist Dr Matthew Dunbabin has developed a flotilla of robotic boats that could monitor the effects of major weather events and provide early warning on potential environmental disasters.
Emerson Process Management has announced the addition of Modbus RS485 and a low-power offering to its Rosemount 8700M magnetic flowmeter platform. The platform is said to help users across a variety of industries take advantage of improved installation, maintenance and process management practices.
The Chloroclam and Hydraclam automated water sampling technology, from Wallace & Tiernan, an Evoqua brand, is designed to streamline the process of chlorine analysis.
The Hach TitraLab AT1000 is a one-touch, automatic titration system with preset methods that can quickly deliver results.
The Series DW-WIFI Wi-Fi data logger, from Dwyer Instruments, measures and records up to 1,000,000 temperature or humidity readings and shares the data with any PC or server on a Wi-Fi network.
