Drinking Water Monitoring

Applications from water intake to tap


The goal of quality monitoring of various natural waters and drinking water is the reduction of harmful effects to the environment and human health. This aim has to fulfill various guidelines that are defined in official ecological and drinking water quality regulations.
Because of the continuous efforts to improve the quality of natural waters, to reduce the health risks of water consumers and to optimize the efficiency of drinking water treatment, the requirements for process technology and for quality control of water are ever increasing.

Therefore, reliable monitoring stations that provide continuous data are an essential component in the drinking water supply and environmental protection – both for the dynamic process control as well as for continuous monitoring of the water quality. In environmental monitoring as well as in drinking water production s::can monitoring stations have been in use for many years. Their technological and methodological quality standards have set new boundaries in regards to measurement performance and have often opened up completely new opportunities for drinking water security and environmental protection.

Smart Water Solutions

Online monitoring of drinking water networks

The prevention of risks, our drinking water networks are exposed to every day, is part of the focus of smart water solutions. Whether it is the risk from accidental discharges or the threat from intentional discharges, major cities rely on the real-time drinking water monitoring systems from s::can.

Our in::pipe monitoring equipment is easy to use and operate. It can be installed in only 30 minutes in any pipeline without interruption of service. The optical technology used provides the most accurate measurements and it is extremely reliable and stable over time.

DTherefore, it is perfectly suitable for automated monitoring of large water distribution networks with a focus on water protection and security. As s::can products are very sensitive to detect any contamination in real-time, they are especially suitable for control systems and enable a quick response.

Event Detection System: ana::tool identifies unknown and unusual conditions and enables operators to react in a timely manner to faults in the monitored system, determines normality of this data and triggers an alarm when a significant deviation from the norm is detected.
