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.

Meet us at Aquatech

Visit us at Aquatech 2017 in Amsterdam, the leading trade exhibition for water technology professionals. Don't miss your chance to gather information about all our unique instruments and services. SWAN has developed new instruments which are user-friendly, time saving and reliable.

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 on-lines SAC(254) measurement, minimizes your maintenance and extends the measuring range. To find out more, one of our experts will be holding a presentation on DOC removal on Wednesday, November 01, at 13:30 in the Europa Foyer.

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.

Our experts look forward to welcoming you in Hall 2, Booth 02.228

Ozone Sanitization of purified water systems in the pharmaceutical industry: Improving Process Safety with AMI Codes-II O3

Sanitization with ozone is the standard method for protecting systems for cold storage and distribution of purified and highly purified water for pharmaceutical purposes against microbial contamination. However, a reliable and safe implementation requires the accurate measurement of ozone at all relevant sampling points: It assures sufficient continuous levels of ozone in the storage tank, efficient periodic sanitization of the distribution system and the complete destruction of ozone before using the water in pharmaceutical production processes.

The new AMI Codes-II O3 for the measurement of trace concentrations of ozone is an ideal choice for these tasks. It transfers the robust, colorimetric lab standard procedure according to DIN-38404-3 to an online monitor:

  • Low detection limit of 1 ppb
  • No sensitivity loss during longer-term absence of ozone
  • Assured long-term stability through automatic zero-point detection as part of every measurement
  • No running-in time after maintenance

AMI Codes-II O3 was specifically designed according to the needs of the pharmaceutical industry and is available with a straightforward instrument qualification package and a convenient kit for simple instrument performance verification. Detailed self-monitoring routines assure the proper functionality of the instrument at all times. These distinctive features enable you to effortlessly comply with your validated procedures every day.

Confidently protect your purified water system and production facilities from contamination.

Congratulations SWAN Analytical UK Ltd.

In January of 2016, SWAN Analytical UK Ltd. agreed upon a framework with ID Systems (IDS).  Through the framework SWAN Analytical UK Ltd. has been able to provide the largest water utility in Scotland with numerous AMI Turbiwells. IDS not only provides for larger scaled water treatment plants, they provide other companies too, such as Ross-Shire Engineering. Ross-Shire Engineering, located in the north of Scotland, works with mobile and smaller sized local water treatment plants. They build the small scale water treatment plants and ship them to the final location.

SWAN’s AMI Turbiwell is a non-contact turbidimeter which requires a minimal maintenance, with no moving parts. Furthermore, the AMI Turbiwell only requires a low sample flow to measure – which is especially appealing to smaller sized water treatment works. Due to its measurement principle, the AMI Turbiwell can be applied to all types of water – from pure water through to effluent. The AMI Turbiwell can also easily cope with heavily gassed samples, making it the ideal solution to all water monitoring requirements.

Seasons Greetings

During the holiday season, our thoughts turn especially grateful to those who have made our progress possible and in this spirit we say, simply but sincerely;

 

Thank you and best wishes for the holiday season and a happy new year!

 

At SWAN, we also believe in balancing economic success and social responsibility. In this light, SWAN sponsors both global and local projects to give back to society at a community level. In 2016, SWAN helped to improve various waste water treatment projects, such as in Benin and assisted in providing wholesome and clean drinking water in regions where water is considered a precious commodity. Projects like these are also dedicated to the eradication of diseases and aim to educate local communities about the use of proper water handling and establishing basic hygienic rules. The combination of this knowledge with the provision of competent and efficient drinking water and sanitation services are known to have a catalytic effect on social change and improvement.

 

Project name: Quali'Eau

Project area: Departement Alibori, Borgou and the city of Parakou

Project duration: 2016 - 2019

Continuous Process Monitoring in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing


Hinwil, Switzerland, January 4, 2017 – SWAN drives on-line quality assurance in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
In pure water (PW), water for injections (WFI) and pure steam loops, measuring parameters such as conductivity, ozone and the organic contamination (TOC) are reliable indicators of quality.
Quality assurance with common laboratory measurements and grab samples is time consuming and expensive.
SWAN’s comprehensive analyzer portfolio for continuous on-line process monitoring enhances quality assurance in pharmaceutical manufacturing by providing real-time insight to ensure process integrity.
Cost savings and significant improvement of quality assurance of water for pharmaceutical use (WPU), confirm SWAN’s position as the supplier of choice and a reliable technology partner for analytical instruments.

All instruments meet the increasing demands of pharma quality assurance and pharma quality control and comply with relevant pharmaceutical regulatory guidelines such as USP, EP, EPPI, JP and CP.
