Water Quality Instrumentation Firm Introduces Wastewater Imaging And Analysis System That Reports Biological Makeup of Mixed Liquor and Effluent

Oct 29 2007

Water quality instrumentation manufacturer Fluid Components International, (USA) has introduced the FlowCAM® WW particle imaging and analysis system designed to monitor the biological makeup within the secondary system of a wastewater treatment facility. To be unveiled at the Water Environment Federation Technical Exposition (WEFTEC ’07) booth no.3950 on Oct. 15th in San Diego, Calif., the automated, new FlowCAM WW enables wastewater operators and laboratory technicians to verify their secondary treatment basins are operating with the optimum level and make up of microbes and then quickly take remedial action if necessary.

Installed inline for monitoring basins 24/7 or used in the lab for analyzing discrete samples, the high speed instrumentation takes hi-resolution, full color digital images of individual bacterial cells and other microorganisms as well as inorganic solids and measures size, length, width, shape, count and other parameters in real time. Saving the images with their corresponding data sets in a digital library, the automated FlowCAM WW permits the establishment of purely
objective historical and baseline data for consistent comparison, interpretation and analysis by any operator or laboratory technician year after year.
The FlowCAM WW eliminates the time- and labor-intensive microscopy process typically used to measure and analyze microbes along with its potential for human error in favor of a fast and easy approach that captures far more data and reveals far more accurate information without requiring highly trained operators. With this reliable data, operators and laboratory technicians can more precisely determine the optimal treatment system adjustment to promote efficient treatment and minimize material costs.
