Dissolved Oxygen monitoring is critical for aeration system process control.  Optimization of the biological process, whether it’s removal of organic material, nitrification, or nitrification/denitrification, depends on maintaining proper D.O. levels.  Controlling air flow to within the optimal range eliminates excess aeration which translates into significant energy savings.
ATI’s Model Q46D Dissolved Oxygen Monitor is designed to provide reliable oxygen measurement and help reduce operating costs.  Two types of sensing technologies are available for use with the Q46D system:  Membraned Electrochemical and Optical (fluorescence).  Both sensors will provide reliable long-term performance with minimal maintenance.  No hardware modifications are required to change from one sensor type to the other.  The monitor can be configured for AC or DC power supplies, and a portable battery-powered unit is available to meet a variety of monitoring needs.

When process conditions require frequent sensor cleaning, our unique Q-Blast Auto-Cleaner can be used to keep the system operating nearly maintenance free.  This time-proven system has been instrumental in providing years of worry free operation.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is the Q-Blast option?
The Q-blast is an option that allows the sensor to be cleaned without a visit to the field site. Pulses of pressurized air is delivered through a nozzle at the tip of the sensor to remove accumulated solids from the critical sensing surfaces. Cleaning frequencies can be set depending on fouling and usage needs.
How often does the optical sensor disk need to be replaced?
The disk has a life of 2-5 years depending on usage.
Can I switch between optical and membrane type sensors?
Yes, no hardware modifications are required to switch between sensor types.

Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Networks at the Heart of Citizen Science Movement

Lately, citizen science initiatives have been getting noticed by laypeople and mainstream media outlets. As everyday people become aware of ways they can get involved in actual scientific research, more of them are doing so—especially teachers and parents working with children. But this citizen science wave isn't actually a new thing. It has been growing outward from its core in volunteer water quality monitoring networks for years. Around the country, volunteers have been quietly monitoring the water quality in lakes, streams, rivers, marshes, and other surface waterways for decades. These highly successful programs have been supporting better water quality in communities across America, and in doing so have also formed the heart of the modern citizen science movement.

US Steel Dumping Chromium: Citizens Fighting for Lake Michigan, and Drinkable Water

If you remember the movie “Erin Brockovich,†you are already familiar with hexavalent chromium, a toxic substance that was contaminating the drinking water of people in California in the movie ( and in real life ). Although on the silver screen there was a very satisfying Hollywood resolution to the problem, there has not yet been such a happy ending in real life. The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

Monitoring the Mississippi: Wild Celery, Redhorse and More

The Upper Mississippi stretches from headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, all the way to Cairo, Illinois, about 1,250 miles. It includes picturesque wilderness areas complete with waterfalls, limestone bluffs and expansive valleys. It has attracted many campers, hikers, fishing enthusiasts and people seeking to launch their favorite boats or canoes. It has also been a haven for environmental researchers. Since 2016, Jeff Houser is the Science Director for the Long Term Resource Monitoring element (LTRM) of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program (UMRR).  Previously, he led the LTRM water quality component from 2003 until 2016.
