Trace (heavy) metals can naturally occur in surface and ground waters or may arise from industrial environmental discharge.


  • Metals in water intake (arsenic)
  • Bacterial contamination of production water
  • BOD in wastewater
  • Metals in mineral water
  • ATP in microbial detection
  • Toxicity and metals in water intake for breweries

Monitoring in the raw water can provide operators with immediate information to facilitate adequate treatment to ensure that there is no impact on the food/drink quality. Our trace metal product range includes the portable MicroTrace PDV and the two on-line, continuous systems: the OVA7100 and OVA7100 Dual Cell. The portable instrument is used effectively for spot sampling or as a cost effective lab instrument and the online OVAs can provide effective, realtime monitoring data.

Our technology is robust and reliable, can be operated by technicians anywhere in the world and is relatively low maintenance. The portable, laboratory and online systems have a worldwide reputation for quality, reliability and ease of use, enabling customers to monitor pollutant levels, optimise their processes, minimise damage to the environment and protect the health of employees and communities at large.
