Skalar SP2000 water analyzers have been integrated into routine operation at Aqualab Zuid
Aqualab Zuid is an accredited independent Dutch water laboratory, located in the Biesbosch National Park, which is a nature conservation area with one of the largest fresh water tidal zone in Europe. This laboratory monitors and optimizes the quality of drinking water in the south of the Netherlands.
Aqualab Zuid receives most of their water samples from three large waterworks companies and occassionally samples from other companies. The laboratory analyzes about 100 to 150 water samples a day on various parameters such as carbonate/bicarbonate, conductivity, oxygen, pH and turbidity in mainly surface water, ground water, drinking water and sometimes in waste water and swimming pool water.
Aqualab has been automating their water analysis for many years with four Skalar SP1000 analyzers. The two new SP2000 analyzers, that are replacing the SP1000 analyzers, include the latest innovations and technologies and offer a higher sample throughput as well, by the integration of a double titrator. The validation of the analyzers has been completed now and the analyzers are ready for routine operation.
Steps of Automation
- Dual titrator, for higher sample throughput
- Laboratory specific racks to fit the water sampling bottles
- Unattended overnight analysis
- High degree of automation, because sample collection bottles can be placed directly on the analyzer
