- Revolutionizing microbial monitoring BactiQuant offer an online solution, which promptly quantifies the content of bacteria in water systems. BactiQuant online can be implemented at critical control points throughout the water system network in industries, water utilities and aquaculture production facilities. The online system is easily integrated in any water system and

can be commissioning in a matter of hours. The online system can analyze and report the results up to 12 times per day (24 hours). The unique combination of handheld and online technology provides an unprecedented comprehensive capability to react and follow up on water quality deviations in a wide range of water types, including salt water.

ADVANTAGES: Eliminates labor intensive sampling and analysis - easy to install and move around

At BactiQuant, we have developed a unique product that can autonomously identify the content of bacteria in water in near real time. It saves both the environment from dangerous biocides and companies for extensive expenses for unnecessary chemistry. In the pharma industry we enable our customers to focus on process control and ensure water quality prior to use – it reduces water consumption and reduce downtime. The technology allow our customers to recycle water without compromising water quality, reduce their biocide consumption, react quickly and

efficiently and thus cut significantly costs to combat biofouling and corrosion. The BactiQuant online technology can be entered into Smart Water Network Solutions communicating through SCADA systems, via GSM modem or Profibus. BactiQuant offers a preventive maintenance program which ensures the regular and routine maintenance of the equipment and assets in order to keep them running and prevent any costly unplanned downtime from unexpected equipment failure.

We deliver technology that ensures optimum usage and handling of water – to the benefit of our customer’s health, well-being, and sustainability and we allow our customers to make risk-based decisions so you can save money while caring for the environment.

An important performance parameter

Samsung Engineering has used BactiQuants technology for two years to provide an important performance parameter that has not been before available in relation to monitoring the stability of a complex biological system. Technology has contributed considerably to our technical solution and we are pleased to be able to use it in our operations in the future. Dr. Jinwook Chung, Principal Engineer, Environmental Technology Development Center

Baseline values in all important critical control points

When we have permanent measuring equipment that has established baseline values in all the most important places, we get a completely different picture of what kind of water we have to run in our pipes. We now get an overall knowledge of the entire system, where with the current samples we can never have more than a snapshot of local impact points. Charlotte Schmidt Vesterlund, planning engineer at TREFOR

Routine monitoring in CCP’s, trouble shooting and emergency response BactiQuant provide a unique combination of intercalibrated online and handheld technology. This allows our customers to perform routine monitoring of bacterial content in critical control points (CCP’s). The handheld technology can be used for flexible sampling schemes based on grab sample strategies as well as for troubleshooting, pollution tracking, and emergency response.

The combination of online and handheld technologies constitutes a powerful tool for all round monitoring capabilities, that can be implemented in water utilities and industries, empowering the technical staff, to become proactive, and to be in control of water quality.

US Corrosion Innovation Award 2017

Surveys may be conducted, analyzed, evaluated, and reported within a matter of hours; identifying location of bacteria populations, evaluating effectiveness of current biocide applications, and confirming future bacteria control strategy. It removes the guess work out of biocide applications and allows the end user to measure the bacteria populations and monitor the effectiveness of bacteria treatment strategy in real time; efficiently controlling the use of microbiocides based on their effects on the bacteria populations.
