Blue I Water Technologies announces: New smart water quality analyzer for Smart Water Networks

30.05.2014

Blue I’s "Smart LEATM", a self-powered water quality analysis station will be introduced at Singapore International Water Week (June 2-4, 2014) and Aquatech China (June 25-27, 2014)

Blue I Water Technologies, a global provider of online water analyzers and controllers, is unveiling a new water quality analyzer that has been specially designed for integration in Smart Water Networks. The company will be introducing the device in June 2014, at Singapore International Water Week (June 2-4) and at Aquatech China (June 25-27).

Smart LEATMis a self-powered, low energy and multi-parameter water quality analyzer, specially designed with sensors that collect and transmit data to be used in predictive analysis systems in smart water networks. The Smart LEATM is part of Blue I’s strategy to incorporate its quality analysis technologies into the growing world of the Internet of Things (IoT).

The new device has been developed with independent, built-in energy storage so that it does not rely on external power sources. This is a key feature that facilitates reliable monitoring for water quality at the most critical points along the water distribution network despite limited accessibility and power supply at those points, including underground pipes and multiple locations near homes, offices and public places.

Dr. Stela Diamant, CTO at Blue I explains: "Water networks generally do not have access to the power supply network at every given point and it is not economically or environmentally feasible to create such an infrastructure. As a result, installing water quality analyzers at what would be ideal points in the system might be abandoned and the competence of entire systems can be compromised due to the lack of power supply at those points in the network. So we see this device as a perfect solution to benefit water distribution networks with heavily branched delivery lines that want to ensure water quality close to the consumer."

Low energy consumption, reduced maintenance, high-precision analysis

Based on high-precision amperometric and colorimetric technologies, this analyzer performs free chlorine, turbidity, ORP, pH, temperature, conductivity, flow and pressure measurements. The system features fast response time to level changes in the parameters being monitored to elicit immediate response for continuous water safety.

Smart Water Networks revolve around gathering and analyzing data to improve its systems and resolve problems more effectively. The Smart LEATM’s sensors relay all data in real time to the network’s online management system and enables ongoing access to data, alerts and history. Data measurements and alarms are logged locally and are also transmitted through cellular data communication systems.

Besides operating on a built-in low energy consumption long-life battery, the analyzer also requires very little calibration, which is a valuable feature for reduced maintenance and site visits. The device and its cables are encased in waterproof enclosures (IP67) for reliable operation in damp environments.

"Water distribution networks are fast entering the age of smart data analysis and require devices that can gather and transmit data that supports efficient, conservational, cost-effective and safe systems," notes Blue I’s CEO, Jacob Azran. He emphasized that "a system that includes Smart LEA analyzers at critical points along the network, even where power supply is not available, is able to create a transformational smart network and secure safe water for its consumers. This device is an invaluable tool in today’s intelligent water distribution infrastructures."

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
