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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
