To complement the Type 8905 Online Analysis System, Bürkert has launched its compact flow injection analysis (FIA) module for monitoring iron content in water supplies. The modular design offers simple integration of pH, ORP, turbidity and chlorine sensors all of which can be calibrated quickly and easily.
The quality of drinking water and water used in the food and beverage industry needs to be maintained at the highest level for consumer safety. For some, weekly analysis does not offer the level of assurance required and a continuous monitoring station is required to maximise confidence in the water quality.
In situations where water is stored in steel tanks, levels of iron can fluctuate significantly and the process to remove the iron needs to be carefully monitored to ensure an effective solution. Bürkert’s FIA module integrates the whole reaction, analysis, cleaning and calibration of the iron measurement process into the Online Analysis System.
The Type 8905 uses a combination of modular cubes, simple calibration processes, operational flexibility, reliability and a very compact footprint to set the standard for clean water quality analysis. The system has an intuitive control interface as well as connectivity to enable datalogging and remote monitoring.
The Bürkert system has been adopted by customers in many countries including the Netherlands, where food manufacturers are seeing the benefits of continuous monitoring. This ensures very close control of the iron content compared to the traditional weekly testing, which has the potential to see iron levels exceeding specifications for several days.
The compact footprint of the Type 8905 platform means that it is easy to install and integrate to an existing water quality monitoring environment. The ease of operation, calibration and maintenance reduces the time traditionally associated with water quality monitoring.
As experts in flow control technology, Bürkert has applied its expertise to water analysis and is setting new standards in terms of ease-of-use, flexibility, installation time and reduced operating costs. The addition of the FIA module will provide users with further flexibility and functionality in the monitoring and control of water quality.
