ToxProtect 64 Quick and reliable drinking water protection, Automated online surveillance
The ToxProtect64 is an automated monitoring system for the protection of a drinking water supply against accidental or malicious contamination due to harmful substances. The characteristics of such threats are a relatively high concentration of dangerous substances that occurs suddenly. This challenging task requires a number of important criteria to be met. Such a system MUST be sensitive to a wide range of toxins. The detection of
toxins using fish is a well-established method, with sensitivity data for nearly every combination of fish and toxin readily available.
The test organisms must react to substances harmful to humans. The use of fish gives the closest practical comparison available in the expected scenario. False alarms MUST be reduced to an absolute minimum in order to increase user-confidence and avoid unnecessary expense. The ToxProtect64 uses an integrated alarm verification system to fulfil this requirement. It is easy to operate at affordable costs since for a high level of
security, it may be necessary to employ multiple monitoring locations.
The ToxProtect64 is a low-price, low-maintenance device which can be installed at various sites within a water company.
