Session 2: Thursday 6 July 2023
This course covers the basics of online sensor technology for the water industry. The most commonly used online sensor techniques will be explained, including:
- colorimetric analysers
- ion-selective electrodes (ISEs)
- optical sensors
- early warning systems
For each technology type, benefits, drawbacks and operational conditions are discussed. Additionally, real-life examples of these technologies in the water industry will be presented to illustrate their application.
This is a course at fundamental level. It is recommended for all water operators involved in daily water quality monitoring, either in a technical capacity (e.g. responsible for maintenance) or in a supervisory role (e.g. responsible for the interpretation of online monitoring results). The course requires basic knowledge of chemistry and physics (completed secondary education level).
Please note: Training will only take place if there are sufficient registrations and there are costs associated with this training course.
