Analytical Technology's Turbidity and pH Systems Enable Food Manufacturers to Comply with New Environmental Legislation

Analytical Technology Inc (ATi), has launched innovative AutoClean suspended solids/turbidity and pH monitors to help food manufacturers comply with the recent integrated Pollution Prevention Control (IPPC) Regulations, which were introduced in June 2006. Under the new regulations, all European food and beverage manufacturers must demonstrate that they are implementing the "Best Available Techniques" (BAT) to control water emissions and provide a high level of protection to the environment as a whole. ATi's AutoClean range of monitors, including suspended solids/turbidity and pH, is designed to meet the specific needs of industrial water treatment for reliable measurements, ensuring any water emissions are not harmful to the environment.
The IPPC regime is an integrated approach to regulation certain industrial activities and installation that may cause pollution or other environmental effects. In order to comply with the new regulations, European food manufacturers must demonstrate that they have systematically developed proposals to apply BAT. The essence of BAT is that the selection of techniques to protect the environment should achieve an appropriate balance between the environmental benefits and the costs incurred by operators. ATi's AutoClean monitor provides food manufacturers with a cost-effective BAT.
Suspended soids/turbidity is a general indicator of the optical clarity of water, and is defined as the amount of light scattered from the particle in a solution. With ATi's D15/76, suspended solids/turbidity measurements can be made from 0-4NTU to 0-4000NTU or 0-10mg/l to 0-10,000mg/l, eliminating the need for separate high and low range instruments.
ATi's Q25 pH sensors used in the Q45P AutoClean pH monitor can be used by food manufacturers to check that the pH level of any water emissions are satisfactory to the IPPC regulations. The differential pH sensor is resistant to fouling and chemical fouling and gives long periods of maintenance free operation.
Dr Michael Strahand, General Manager Europe at ATi. Comments: "The introduction of this new legislation will have a massive impact on all food and beverage manufacturers as they will be forced to focus more on their water emissions. At ATi we can simplify the transition by providing a range of instruments which can monitor all water emissions and prove to the Environment Agency that the company is not releasing any harmful effluent into the environment."
