First UK water company to adopt Parker’s real-time analyser technology

Drinking water

Until now, Anglian Water has relied on a laboratory for THM analysis. The company decided to look for an alternative onsite method which would take pressure off its laboratory and deliver a same-day result. During the last five years, the company has invested more than £100 million in drinking water improvements, surpassing some of the most stringent quality targets in the world. In July 2015, Anglian Water took the strategic decision to further enhance its water treatment and supply processes by installing an in-house Trihalomethane (THM) sample monitoring and analysis system. Capable of analysing samples in less than 30 minutes, with no reagents or sample preparation, the powerful instrument has been supplied by the Instrumentation Products Division of Parker Hannifin via a distributor in the UK, KC Controls. 

The analyser is an integrated purge-and-trap system connected to a compact gas chromatograph column and a very sensitive surface acoustic wave (SAW) detector. It provides a completely self-contained solution for realtime measurement and analysis of THM concentration levels, down to as low as 1 part per billion (ppb) for each individual species of THMs. The analyser can measure chloroform, dichlorobromomethane, dibromochloromethane and bromoform – the four species that make up total THMs – to within 10% accuracy
