Jersey Water cuts OPEX and lab time thanks to improved ammonia measurement.
Jersey Water’s treatment works use a two-stage method of water treatment: chemically assisted sedimentation and rapid gravity filtration followed by disinfection using chlorine and ammonia (chloramination) and UV.
The company needs to measure the levels of ammonia in the water before and after filtration, to check if the raw water has been contaminated by agriculture or pesticides and to determine the correct dosage of ammonia for the chloramination process.
However, algae growth in the filtration system was affecting the consistency of the measurement.
The solution was to replace a cloth filtration system with a new sample preparation system, Liquiline System CAT820. The CAT820 has a ceramic filter that filters samples to 0.1 micron, small enough to allow the dissolved ammonia through but keep other particulates out of the prepared sample. The team at Jersey Water were impressed with the way the problem was resolved. “It was sorted out quickly and our contact at Endress+Hauser was really helpful,” explains Electrical Engineer and Assistant Asset Manager Ian Young. As well as improving reliability, the solution has cut operating expenditure and reduced maintenance effort.Find out more

What our customer said
“Before we had to constantly clean and maintain the cloth filter so it’s saved time and effort and has cut down on instrument downtime. The new system’s not maintenance-free but it’s certainly low maintenance. We’re getting consistent and accurate results and that’s the most important thing.”
