Water Quality – Critically Important to Countless Industries

To say that the world of water quality is diverse is an understatement of some magnitude. It’s much more than simply diverse.  It’s down right complex. Whether your application is pool management, pharmaceutical manufacturing, maintenance of boilers or cooling towers, food production, brewing, printing, desalination, agriculture, aquaculture, waste water management, or any one of a vast number of other industries, the quality of the water is a make-or-break, critical characteristic that determines success or failure.  The kind of instrumentation needed to meet the needs of this exacting and varied array of applications must be reliable and accurate. It must be simple to use.  It also must be very flexible.

Sometimes company buyers reject saving possibilities because the cost could be more than what is already being paid, totally ignoring the value of the possible solution. Cost-effectiveness should however be assessed. Why object to making more profit ?  It makes  wages-rises possible.

Avoiding the high risk of alarm floods

Too often an alarm is an afterthought – its existence driven by the realisation that somewhere in a process there is something that can go horribly wrong. As more points of possible failure come to light extra alarms are added. The system grows ‘like Topsy’. Soon the point is reached where the volume of alarms that may be generated in adverse conditions is itself a cause of failures – due to control room operator overload, known to be a frequent factor in industrial disasters.
