NTU start-up launches world's first 3-in-1 water monitoring system
Date:6/20/2012

Water companies will be able to cut down two-thirds of their water monitoring operation costs with the latest state-of-the-art water sensing technologies developed at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

With the world's first 3-in-one water quality monitoring system built up and commercialised by NTU's spin-off company, Membrane Instruments and Technology (MINT), water treatment plants can potentially save up to $200,000 each year.

MINT's new system is able to monitor water quality in the water treatment process and identify if there are any bacteria or contaminants; detect any broken membrane filters in the treatment plant; and pinpoint which filter is broken accurate to 1 in 100,000 filters.

Called Memshield, this integrated system performs all three crucial processes using a single device.

All water treatment plants using membrane technology, are required to be able to perform the three processes to comply with international standards, such as those set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. However, the processes are now being done separately using different methods.

Founder and General Manager of MINT, Dr Adrian Yeo, an NTU graduate, said this is where automated technology can play a part to increase productivity and reduce cost at the same time. The accurate, real-time data feed and analysis provided by the system will also give water plant managers crucial insight into their water supplies.

"The conventional methods of water monitoring, and to detect and pinpoint faulty membrane filters, requires manpower in three separate processes, which is both labour and cost intensive," said Dr Yeo.

"Having a fully integrated and automated system that requires only one technician to operate will reduce manpower costs significantly. Also current technology is unable to pinpoint which membrane filter has failed which means time is spent on troubleshooting. This new technology by MINT
