Build reliability into your processes One of the major challenges in ensuring safe drinking water is the difference between the time it takes to produce, distribute, and consume the water and the time it takes to investigate if it is safe to drink. Similarly, ensuring that contaminants stay within acceptable levels in water discharged from the wastewater treatment plant is important for avoiding collateral effects on the local community. Typically, you wait two days for the results of routine testing sent to a lab for analysis. GRUNDFOS BACMON gives you minute-based results 24/7, allowing...

Unique and patented optical technology GRUNDFOS BACMON is in essence an automatic, intelligent microscope. Based on patented 3D scanning optics it classifies all particles as bacteria or non-bacteria, by automatically moving a digital microscope over a flow cell. The robust algorithm classifies particles by evaluating 59 quantified image parameters. Always online and fully integrated into your platform, data is available within minutes for you to access on your mobile device or PC. If you use the Grundfos iPad App, you get an intuitive and easy to use interface, which further simplifies and...

We have solid experience from installations where GRUNDFOS BACMON monitors water supply, wastewater treatment and other applications. In addition to the cases presented on the following pages, BACMON has already proven its worth in other areas: Source water control BACMON is used with success to monitor the quality of raw water, for example for the intrusion of surface water. Water aging During water distribution, water quality can change many times, commonly referred to as water aging. Today, the best way to control this is by monitoring the chlorine concentration - an indirect method that...

CASE l AARHUS VAND Don’t worry – it’s under control It is a strong thing to monitor water quality 24/7” Tammes Lund Jepsen, Water Quality Operations, Aarhus Vand Despite taking precautions, a diver inspecting a water holding tank in Aarhus, Denmark, kicked up sediment that entered the outflow pipe to the water supply system. GRUNDFOS BACMON registered the increased particle content at the outflow. Another BACMON sensor installed at a reservoir 7 km downstream registered the decreased water quality 1.3 days later, which corresponds to the hydraulic retention time of the water between the two...

Protecting business investments Bacteria monitoring has helped us understand how external factors such as heavy rain and tide affect the water quality in the lagoon” Raphaëlle Lauret, Chief of Aquatic Environment Project, SUEZ The city of Sète in the south of France is known for Étang de Thau, a lagoon famous for shellfish production. Monitoring with GRUNDFOS BACMON has helped the customer understand how natural or anthropogenic events affect the water quality in the lagoon. For example, the measurements clearly show that the tide causes both the bacteria and particle level to increase...

Safe operation for critical applications GRUNDFOS BACMON represents a unique capability for real-time monitoring of microorganisms in water” Sophie Courtois, PhD, Expert in Analytical Molecular Biology, SUEZ In a crowded city, water supply is a critical application. In Paris, France, continuous measurements were taken of potable water from the tap: First of the tap water alone in real conditions, then artificially spiked on SUEZ experimentation platform with increasing doses of water from the Seine River, and finally spiked with bacteria. 1,4 BACMON not only identified the microbiological...
