A raft of product launches – and a new company – are on the cards as the monitoring industry gets ready for its big event of the year.
The WWEM 2012 show at Telford International Centre (November 7-8) will be the biggest yet with around 120 organisations displaying the latest products and services for the environmental testing and monitoring market, including several that will have recently received MCERTS.
The event will also bring the launch of more new products than ever with many companies unveiling new monitoring technology while YSI Hydrodata is set to launch a new company – Xylem Analytics UK Ltd – that will combine the market-leading technologies of YSI, Sontek, AADI and WTW. Many of Xylem Analytics’ latest products will be on display including the new YSI EXO multiparameter sonde, the SonTek IQ shallow water flow meter and the WTW Varion with IQ for ammonium and nitrate measurements.
Envitech will launch a new ammonia monitor and controller and OTT Hydrometry will unveil a groundwater monitor, a portable flow meter and a range of dataloggers. Pollution & Process Monitoring Ltd will launch its latest Proam ammonia technology for continuous wastewater analysis while Isodaq Technology will demonstrate its new Tadpole GPRS logger for monitoring remote sites in harsh environments. Also in the line-up is Intellitect Water which will underline the success of its in-pipe monitoring technology achieved in effluent ammonia monitoring.
ProMinent Fluid Controls (UK) Ltd, the chemical fluid handling specialist, has confirmed it will launch the DulcoFlow flow meter.
HACH LANGE’s process monitoring booth will focus on the company’s most recent MCERTS awards in addition to its real-time wastewater treatment optimisation solution (WTOS) which it says has been winning rave reviews by companies that have installed the system. A 25% reduction in energy use has been commonplace, the company said.
Elsewhere, STS Instruments will showcase its novel solution for identifying and quantifying organic pollution using the SMF4, a portable fluorimeter and VEGA will exhibit their new non-contact microwave radar level transmitter.
New remote monitoring applications for WWEM 2012 will include the SeSys high resolution digital IP cameras which enable utility companies to protect assets and monitor processes, and examples from Ashtead Technology’s fleet of rental infrared cameras will be demonstrated; typical applications include energy efficiency investigations, checking electrical equipment, predictive maintenance of mechanical equipment and remote measurement of level inside tanks.
In the gas zone, Gardner Denver Thomas will launch the next generation of miniature air sampling pumps including the 1010 reciprocating diaphragm pump and Gas Measurement Instruments will show the PS200, which it claims is the most flexible gas detector on the market.
Enviro Technology is showcasing ‘electronic nose’ technology for waste odour monitoring and with over 65,000 gas monitors across thousands of customer sites currently operating on iNet. Industrial Scientific will demonstrate this web-based application for managing an organisation’s entire gas detector fleet.
Among the exhibitors in the laboratory sector are ESSLAB with a new liquid handling system for preparing samples and standards, HACH LANGE with its latest spectrophotometer and Palintest has promised to pack its stand with innovations including a range of electrochemical instruments.
