WATER QUALITY MONITORING

NEAR REAL-TIME DATA WITH NO NEED FOR SITE VISITS

"The Metasphere units are working very well, allowing crucial flow data to be retrieved to satisfy regulatory compliance for the water companies and the Environment Agencies in both England and Scotland"

Karl Bambynek, Siris Environmental Ltd

Water quality monitoring provided by Metasphere is available with a wide range of sensors, covering almost every application.

Water quality is a vital parameter in many industries such aquaculture, mining, water resources and remediation.

Metasphere’s remote monitoring systems allow access to near real-time water quality data 24 hours a day without the need for site visits.

THE PROBLEM

Water quality monitoring is vital, both to comply with government regulations, and to ensure a supply of high-quality water for consumers and businesses.

THE RISK

Monitoring water quality today is a growing challenge. The chemicals we use in everyday life and those used by industry are finding their way into our water resources. The increased flooding seen in recent years adds further contamination to this important resource. Lack of near-real-time monitoring increases the risk of contaminated water making its way into treatment plants, irrigation systems, and cause irreparable damage to ecosystems.

THE SOLUTION

Metasphere has integrated a number of leading water quality sensors with the Point Colour range to provide easy-to-deploy self-contained monitoring stations that provide important water quality data in near-real-time, without the need for site visits.

HOW DOES THE METASPHERE
SOLUTION WORK?

The Metasphere water quality system monitors essential properties that include, but are not restricted to, pH, conductivity, temperature, dissolved oxygen (DO), turbidity, nitrates and phosphates. The Point Colour range can take measurements from up to 12 sensors. These sensors are monitored on a predefined interval, relevant to both the site and the sensors being deployed.

The Point Colour can be configured to dynamically increase its measurement rate, and dynamically dial in if one of its user-definable alarm levels is breached. Data can then be sent back to the Metasphere data service, Palette, where users can view the received data or make use of both the email and SMS alarm functionality - the latter being particularly useful for receiving alarms out of hours.

Data can also be sent to both FTP and DNP3 servers where subsequent alarms can be generated by the user, or data can be used to perform control functions.
