Trace Metals

AMS’ monitoring solutions offer accurate, automated, rapid, real-time, reliable online water quality data for municipal and industrial sectors the world over. When integrated into a drinking, process or wastewater remediation control strategy, the MetalGuard™, SafeGuard™ and Instran™ products serve as an essential element to ensure remeditation of trace metal and inorganic contaminants.

The online MetalGuard™ and SafeGuard™ analyzers provide measurement of trace metal contaminants such as arsenic, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, selenium and more; while the Instran™ analyzers provide measurement of inorganic contaminants such as ammonia, fluoride, phosphates, nitrate and more.

With AMS’ monitoring solutions, water treatment systems are finally intelligent since real-time sensing ensures performance is optimized to avoid under- or over-treatment and that any deterioration in system performance is signaled to permit timely remedial intervention.

Online trace metal and inorganic water quality analyzers enable users to protect the environment from harmful contaminants while controlling operational and treatment costs by:

  • Helping users to make informed decisions throughout all phases of their contaminant remediation project
  • Quickly detecting changing contaminant levels
  • Monitoring critical process steps
  • Optimizing chemicals usage and reduce associated labor costs
  • Maximizing media lifetime, extending the time between costly media replacement
  • Reducing operational downtimes
  • Maximizing blend efficiencies and minimize treatment usage
  • Reducing labor and sampling costs
  • Quickly detecting the effectiveness of remediation process and advert regulatory breach

Products

The operation of every AMS online water quality monitoring system is supported with remote, 24/7 factory monitoring to ensure the quick identification and remediation of operational issues. Our unique approach minimizes downtime and optimizes performance.

Every system is offered with an annual service contract inclusive of a 5-year warranty.

SafeGuard™

SafeGuard™ is an automated online trace metals analyzer for monitoring municipal and industrial water and wastewater. The system provides real-time, multi-stream analysis for a range of trace metal contaminants.

SafeGuard delivers accurate and reliable results (up to 1 ppb or ± 15%, whichever is higher) with a typical measurement time of fewer than 30 minutes. An enhanced system is available with a fast turn around time of 5 minutes without compromising accuracy. The analyzer can be used to measure up to two different trace metals contaminants on the same instrument.

MetalGuard™

MetalGuard™ is the first fully automated online trace metals analyzer for monitoring municipal and industrial water and wastewater. The system provides real-time, multi-stream analysis for a range of trace metal contaminants.

MetalGuard delivers accurate and reliable results (up to 1 ppb or ± 15%, whichever is higher) with a typical measurement time of fewer than 30 minutes. The system also allows for manually collected samples to be analyzed.

MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™

A novel automated and unattended real-time lead corrosion risk management system for monitoring the risk of exposure to lead contamination.

The analyzer provides rapid analysis of the safety of drinking water in homes, schools, day-cares exposed to the risk of lead contamination. It is designed to be used independently or in conjunction with SafeGuard™ Lead for rapid low-cost analysis of locations predicted to be  at risk for an increase in contamination risk.

Instran™

Instran™ online inorganic water quality analyzers from AMS provide accurate, rapid, real-time, reliable and multi-stream analysis of inorganic contaminants such as ammonia, fluoride, phosphate and nitrate. Instran provides high frequency real-time data with a sensitivity of 10 ppb or 0.01 mg/L and a measurement time of approximately 10 minutes to support sustainable, accurate control of the drinking water and wastewater treatment processes.
