Horiba Scientific have developed new software for their Aqualog to facilitate monitoring and optimisation of water treatment processes. Aqualog analyses organics in water, measuring simultaneously both absorbance spectra and fluorescence excitation–emission matrices. The Aqualog Datastream Dashboard, which was designed with Eigenvector Research, integrates with Aqualog and automates the analysis and reporting of a wide range of organic matter parameters that are critical for managing and optimising the drinking water treatment process. These have been selected to target disinfection by-product issues, algal issues and other contamination components. The dashboard also displays independently uploaded data for parameters such as pH, alkalinity, turbidity and Cl2.
