  • Do you need sensors for sewage and slurry outflow monitoring?

    The CTG UviLux Effluent fluorimeter enables in-situ real-time reporting of levels of sewage and BOD within both natural water systems and water processing plants. By use of UV fluorescence, the UviLux Sewage Monitor detects protein which is inherent within sewage and slurry and provides a means of assessing concentrations of sewage and slurry in solution with unparalleled accuracy and resolution. The principle behind the measurement is based on fluorescence excitation of Tryptophan-like fluorescence, within the UV wavelength band. Use of such fluorescence provides signal detection far superior to absorption methods currently in use. Studies have shown that use of such fluorescence provides robust and repeatable measurements of sewage and slurry solutions, and correlates with both BOD and Bacterial Contamination.

KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST REGULATIONS TO HELP SHIPS BECOME GREENER & PREVENT POLLUTION – CTG DEMONSTRATE CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS AT OCEAN BUSINESS!

We will be showcasing our water quality monitors for ballast water treatment & exhaust gas cleaning systems at Ocean Business, Southampton, UK, with a classroom demonstration on Wednesday 5 April at 1200 in the Ray Beverton room.
The team will be on hand to present Sea Sentry & FastBallast, which provide the shipping industry with accurate monitoring systems for Green Ship Regulations. Sea Sentry has been certified by DNV.GL & monitors both the inlet and outlet of water, so that ship operators can be extremely confident that their scrubber systems are working effectively. FastBallast, is able to rapidly test phytoplankton concentrations at the D2 (10 to 50 µm) regulatory limit with the same degree of accuracy as shore based analyses, but in any water type and at the time of discharge.

Sea Sentry on ship1

CTG appoint DONGMOON ENT Co (Korea) to represent their water quality compliance monitors for ballast water & exhaust gas cleaning systems.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of DONGMOON ENT Co. as overseas representative for our range of maritime products,” said CTG’s Stephanie Lavelle. “DONGMOON ENT will promote our range of water quality monitors for ballast water treatment and exhaust gas cleaning systems in Korea, China, Singapore, Taiwan & Japan”.

“Both their geographical location and expertise make DONGMOON ENT Co a perfect fit for us,” said Stephanie Lavelle. “They now have a Sea Sentry, Wash Water Monitor for Ship Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems and a FastBallast Portable Ballast Water Compliance Monitor in-country available for demonstration.”

The team at CTG has developed Sea Sentry and FastBallast to provide the shipping industry with the most accurate monitoring systems for Green Ship Regulations available. Sea Sentry has been certified by DNV.GL and monitors both the inlet and outlet of water, so that ship operators can be extremely confident that their scrubber systems are working effectively. FastBallast, is able to rapidly test phytoplankton concentrations at the D2 (10 to 50 µm) regulatory limit with the same degree of accuracy as shore based analyses, but in any water type and at the time of discharge.

FastBallast Portable Ballast Water Compliance Monitor is capable of determining the phytoplankton cell density of ballast water at the IMO D2 & USCG Discharge Standards (10 to 50 um range). Its available as a portable dual function discrete & flow-through analysis system, solely as a portable discrete sampling system or as a fully integrated system for continual flow-through analysis.  slavelle@chelsea.co.uk. https://goo.gl/yXIGPT

BACTEST Ltd partners with CTG to add a test for phytoplankton to the new “Speedy Breedy SeaSure®” treated ballast water compliancy monitor.

In order to bring Speedy Breedy SeaSure® to market, BACTEST Ltd teamed up with Chelsea Technologies Group to test for Phytoplankton and with international water testing company Palintest Ltd to measure chemical contamination, meaning that SpeedyBreedy SeaSure® is a one-stop shop to determine if treated ballast water is compliant to IMO D2, VGP and other standards and the only ballast water testing solution suitable of testing for microbial, phytoplankton and chemical contamination.

“We are aa leading innovator in the field of ballast water compliancy monitoring,” said Stephanie Lavelle, CTG’s Maritime Manager. “Our portable and ultra-sensitive ballast water compliance monitor, FastBallast, is able to rapidly test phytoplankton concentrations at the D2 (10 to 50 µm) regulatory limit with the same degree of accuracy as shore based analyses. We are delighted to have partnered with BACTEST in the launch of their new Speedy Breedy SeaSure®.” https://goo.gl/wpKMoS

Speedy Breedy SeaSure® has been developed specifically as a solution to test if Ballast Water has been treated in accordance with the IMO D2, VGP and other standards. These standards set targets for ballast water treatment to reduce or completely remove certain bacteria to include E.Coli, Enterococci and Toxigenic Cholera, chemicals and phytoplankton.

CTG’s Green Ship Solutions – Interview with Stephanie Lavelle

GREEN4SEA interview highlighting our Exhaust Gas Scrubber & Ballast Water Monitoring Systems. Including an United States Coast Guard funded portable Ballast Water Compliance Device #GreenShipSolutions
We have been designing and manufacturing sensors & systems for aquatic environments for over 50 years, which includes developing maritime environmental equipment for Green Shipping Technology. With our historic expertise in fluorometers, phytoplankton and ambient environmental parameters, we have developed Sea Sentry for compliance monitoring of wash water from exhaust gas scrubber systems and FastBallast for compliance monitoring of ballast water discharge.

“Monitoring of Organics removal through Water Treatment process by use of fluorescence”

wwem2016CTG’s Senior Scientist, Dr Cathy Rushworth Curran, speaking at WWEM 2016 Seminar today on the “Monitoring of Organics removal through Water Treatment process by use of fluorescence”.

“Use of fluorescence as a method for monitoring organics within water treatment processes provides key advantages in the sensitivities that are achieved with this technique when compared with current monitoring techniques,” said Cathy. During the workshop Cathy introduced the technology, provided details of the CTG fluorescence sensors applied to these processes, and included details of monitoring of bacterial contamination within such processes.
