Meet the Experts at IFAT 2018 in Munich

IFAT is the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, and is a place where visitors can find strategies and solutions for using resources in intelligent cycles in a manner that ensures their long-term preservation- what a great deal of success.

SWAN has developed new instruments with unique features to help you with your measurements and to make reading measurements easier for you. Don’t miss the unique opportunity to meet the experts for online water analytical instruments. Our three new instruments will be shown on our booth;
For the power industry, our AMI CACE, no more resin change! Conductivity After Cation Exchange (CACE) has never been easier than with the new EDI technology which combines cation exchange and in-place resin regeneration.

For the potable water industry, our AMI SAC254. With its dynamic absorbance measurement it improves the accuracy and reliability of the online SAC(254) measurement, minimizes your maintenance and extends the measuring range.

Our latest instrument for the pharma industry, AMI Codes-II O3 , will be on show. AMI Codes-II O3 is a dependable ozone monitor with reliable results even after long term absences of ozone.

Power Cycle Instrumentation Seminar Latin America

This April, PPChem will be holding Power Cycle Instrumentation Seminars in Mexico City, Lima and Buenos Aires and SWAN is proud to be the main sponsor of all three events. The topics being covered during those seminars are the following:

  • Chemical regimes and the respective monitoring requirements
  • New VGB guidelines for boiler feed water, boiler water and steam
  • Sampling systems: Engineering specification and guidelines (VGB, IAPWS)
  • Analytical methods and analyzers: Conductivity, degassed conductivity, sodium, silica, pH and dissolved oxygen
  • Quality assurance techniques and maintenance planning
  • Water/Steam cycle monitoring requirements for combined cycle power plants

The seminar consists of experts from different companies with a wide experience in the field and will be held in Spanish. Should you be interested in taking part in either seminar, there are still open spaces. The detailed agendas can be found here.

SWAN Turkey renews analytical instruments of ISKI's Cumhuriyet Potable Water Treatment Plant in Istanbul

Hinwil, Switzerland, Feb 8, 2018: SWAN Turkey, part of SWAN Analytical Instruments, has supplied Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration (ISKI) with renewed online instrumentation for the Cumhuriyet drinking water treatment plant.

The city of Istanbul currently owns 13 different potable water treatment plants which serve a population of over 14 million. A daily capacity of 720.000 m3/day makes the Cumhuriyet potable water plant, opened in 2012 and operated by the ISKI, one of the largest of them. Treatment steps include aeration to remove dissolved gases, solid material removal by sedimentation and filtration, and disinfection prior to clean water distribution.

SWAN Turkey has replaced all analytical instrumentation including detailed engineering, removal of obsolete instruments, piping, installation of new analyzers in a cabin suitable for outdoor applications and field installation. The online instrumentation will help to further control and improve the water quality which is already well above the standards identified by the European Community (EC), World Health Organization (WHO), USA Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and Turkish Standards Institute (TSE).



The immersion type measurements for aeration monitoring have been exchanged with SWAN online instruments AMI pH/Redox for pH and AMI Turbitrack for turbidity measurement. Each one is equipped with a flow through cell and mounted on one separate panel. All transmitters, sensors, flow cells and cables used were assembled in a weather-resistant cabinet. Because of the occurance of lime deposits in the sedimentation process, SWAN Turkey has also customized a cleaning module specifically designed for this application. The additional pump module installed removes impurities automatically to guarantee continuous low maintenance operation of the instrument.



The ISKI Cumhuriyet Potable Water Treatment plant operates the following instruments:

7 Monitor AMI Turbitrack
4 Monitor AMI pH M-Flow
3 Monitor AMI Trides with pH Option

Colorimetric Online Monitoring of Ozone Concentration in Pharmaceutical Water

SWAN is expanding its comprehensive product range with the AMI Codes-II O3, a measuring instrument developed especially for the pharmaceutical sector. This combines the advantages of the robust, standard colorimetric method according to DIN-38404-3 from the laboratory with the online measurement. The measuring method does not detect a loss of sensitivity during prolonged absence of ozone and no service time is required after maintenance, the use of the AMI Codes-II O3 directly increases the process reliability.

To learn more about SWANs AMI Codes-II O3 visit us at the Lounges in Karlsruhe. One of our experts will be giving a lecture on Tuesday, 06.02.2018 at 16:00 or find out more here.

Helvetas Water Project 2017

At SWAN, we also believe in balancing economic success and social responsibility. In this light, SWAN helped to improve the drinking water in Bangladesh. Natural disasters have led to salinity of water and soils which now threaten the livelihoods of the population. The aim of this project is to educate the locals about the proper water handling, basic hygienic rules and how to prevent diseases. By working with Helvetas for many years, we can guarantee that our donations are being used properly.

Sending our heartfelt gratitude for trusting our company this year. We truly appreciate your contribution; you have made this successful year possible.

SWAN wishes you and your family a wonderful holiday season as well as all the best wishes for the New Year.

AMI SAC254 - Simplifying monitoring of organics in potable water treatment processes

The AMI SAC254 is an online monitor for continuous measurements of UV-absorption (a surrogate parameter, which is correlated to various carbon-based parameters such as DOC and TOC) at a wavelength of 254nm.

The AMI SAC254 uses a unique and dynamic measuring method, which provides accurate results without drift and is insensitive of fouling and aging of the light source. Monitoring SAC (Spectral Absorption Coefficient) at 254nm is a fast and relatively simple compared to traditional lab measurements. Thus, this instrument allows you to save chemicals, energy and costs by improving the efficiency of individual treatment steps. Additionally, the AMI SAC254 enables early detection of unwanted events, making it ideally equipped for cost efficient and constant trend monitoring in your water network.
