Severn Trent trials Modern Water technology

Modern Water has recently trialled a trace metal monitor for use at a water treatment works in the UK for Severn Trent Water. 

Severn Trent Water is using the OVA7000 for online, low-level trace metal analysis to ensure that the water produced meets UK standards. The unit can be fully integrated into Severn Trent’s telemetry system.

The OVA7000 provides online detection for a range of naturally occurring trace metals, with detection limits below recognised drinking water standards.

The OVA7000 is said to prevent the time delays that are incurred when waiting for test results from the laboratory and could allow operators to take proactive measures to prevent  water quality issues.
