Advanced water analyzer technology expands its global IP protection with Canadian patent



Blue I Water Technologies, a prominent global provider of smart and simple water quality analyzers and controllers, has been granted yet another patent on the PRIZMA water analyzer and controller for residential swimming pools, this time by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.

The PRIZMA’s success has been based on its innovative electro-optic test strip technology that has introduced automation to the litmus paper test for monitoring chemicals in water. The system assures chemical balancing for the pool’s water, features automatic calibration, and provides real-time online reports. The patent, entitled “Indicator Strip and a Device for Automatic Testing of Liquids”, further protects the technology that is already patented in the United States, Australia, China, South Africa, UK, France, Germany, Spain, and many other countries. This latest development will increase accessibility to the product worldwide and is likely to increase demand.

One of Blue I’s flagship developments, PRIZMA’s system is particularly suited for use in residential and private swimming pools and spas, ensuring pool sanitation and clear water. It works by applying electro-optic capabilities to accurately analyze test pads that automatically monitor water quality at regular intervals. A continuous indicator strip is run across a series of individual test sections, each providing analysis for a different chemical, such as chlorine and pH. Pool owners and pool service companies benefit from the simple-to-use, probeless (no calibration) and low maintenance technology that helps to significantly reduce work load and unnecessary pool maintenance, as well as keeping them up-to-date with online reports.

“The Canadian patent is a very welcome milestone for Blue I Water Technologies in completing global patenting” says CEO Jacob Azran. “The PRIZMA and our other innovative water analysis and control products have broken into the world market and are gaining prominence in many locations including North America, China, India, Brazil, Colombia and Europe. We intend to continue developing solutions and providing our clients with the most advanced technologies in the industry, while protecting the environment by saving energy and water.”

About PRIZMA®:
This revolutionary system automatically measures and balances the chlorine and pH levels in private pools and spas, preventing chemical overdosing and under-dosing and ensuring environmental and personal safety. The electro-optic technology yields accurate readings, utilizing a colorimetric-based test strip cartridge, eliminating the pH effect on chlorine measurements as well as the need to calibrate the system. Measurements and alerts are transmitted via wireless communications, allowing 24/7 remote monitoring and control by the pool administrators, saving unnecessary maintenance.

PRIZMA’s simple operation, calibration-free system, and remote reporting significantly reduce maintenance work load and costs.

About Blue I Water Technologies:
Blue I Water Technologies was established in Israel in 2003 with the development of a number of unique technologies for water quality monitoring and treatment. Its products are leading global technology in detecting chlorine and other components in sea water and in controlling municipal water systems. They are pioneering the most advanced methods of monitoring water for the food and beverage industry, the petroleum and petrochemical industry, and public and private swimming pools.
Clients include international industry leaders such as Coca Cola, Yoplait, Euro Disney, Total, BAZAN Oil Refineries Ltd., Israel Electric Corp, and the Olympic swimming pool in Beijing.

Jacob Azran, formerly a senior staff member at Orbotech, was appointed CEO of Blue I in 2011.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
