ATP monitoring system

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

Promega introduces Water-Glo, a tool to help water-treatment plant analysts (and other water-critical industries) quickly and reliably detect living microbes present in a sample. The technology offers a rapid, highly sensitive and flexible measurement system for monitoring microbial contamination in fresh, process, sea or wastewater samples. This tool employs analysis and detection reagent combination. Formatted for lab use in a 96-well plate format, the kits and companion instrumentation can quickly analyze ATP levels in up to 90 samples in less than 90 minutes.

DNA-based microbial solutions

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

LuminUltra introduces its GeneCount portfolio of DNA products and services, designed to quantify, specify and target the types of organisms found in all types of water systems, on surfaces and in solid samples. These products and services complement the company’s flagship ATP measurement kits by identifying exactly which organisms are in a sample. Products and services include: GeneCount Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) services, testing equipment and kits, which allow users to rapidly screen for specific microbes or groups of microbes/ GeneCount Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) services can identify nearly all types of microbes present, along with insight into what good or harm they may be causing.

UF membrane

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

Toray Membrane USA, Inc.’s HFU-B2315AN pressurized hollow-fiber ultrafiltration (UF) membrane module applies advanced PVDF membrane chemistry and thermally-induced phase separation (TIPS) spinning method that carefully controls the pore size and evenly distributes the number of pores on the membrane surface. The result is a hollow-fiber membrane with fine separation of viruses, bacteria and suspended solids. Low fouling and high permeability help optimize and extend plant performance. Key advantages include tight pore size (0.01 μm); high mechanical tensile strength of hollow-fiber for minimal fiber breakage; chemically-tolerant for operational longevity; high packing density (60 m2) per module, as well as technical support and expertise within reach. This component is tested and certified under NSF/ANSI 61 for drinking-water system components.

Blue-White Industries’ BW DIGI-METER® F-2000 Series electronic, digital paddlewheel flowmeters monitor flow in a wide variety of applications. These units will measure water ranges from 0.4 to 8,000 gpm (one to 27,000 L/m) and feature an easily visible eight-digit LCD read-out with up to four decimal positions. The meters are field-programmable via the front panel touchpad—and the panel is equipped with a security lockout. The flowmeter is designed to accommodate pipe or wall-mount installations and can be installed quickly and efficiently. The insertion-style F-2000 displays flowrate, total flow and includes an NPN open collector output for communication with data loggers, SCADA systems and other external devices. Additional features include: 4-20 mA / 0-10 VDC, batch processing, a high/low flowrate alarm output and front-panel security lockout. The F-2000 comes factory-programmed with a calibration certificate.

Interconnectivity system

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Culligan International introduces its ClearLink Connect and Drinking Water Connect accessories, which connect Culligan’s AC-30 and Aqua-Cleer® drinking-water systems to the Culligan Connect Wi-Fi mobile app, giving homeowners the ability to monitor their home drinking water from anywhere in the world. This allows users to track daily, weekly and monthly water usage patterns, monitor contaminants and chemicals removed from their water, track the number of plastic bottles kept from the landfill and estimate dollars saved through use of the system—all from a smart phone.

In addition, a built-in Wi-Fi leak sensor acts as a warning system that notifies a user’s smart phone when a leak is detected, while the filter-life indicator and real-time TDS monitor provide peace of mind, ensuring that homeowners always know exactly what is happening under their sink. The mobile app can be downloaded for free via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
