SWAN helps to significantly lower maintenance costs by eliminating resin changing of the CACE measurement.

Hinwil, Switzerland 25-11-2016 – SWAN Systeme AG upgrades sample conditioning and installs multiple AMI CACE analyzers in a Swiss waste incineration plant to improve the overall instrumentation availability and maintenance cost of the on-line CACE measurement.

Conventional resin of cation exchangers generally involve high costs associated with consumables which demand frequent maintenance by skilled personnel. Resin changing also implicates a temporary loss of data during maintenance and rinse-down time. Additionally, fresh resin causes biased measurements due to varying resin quality and ion leaching effects.

The upgrade of the sample conditioning according to VGB-S006-2012 and the AMI CACE were well perceived due to its application-specific low maintenance concept featuring integrated automatic electro-deionization (EDI) for continuous resin regeneration. The significantly smaller resin volumes of AMI CACE enabled shorter response times in detecting the anions. The integrated flow throttle and digital sample flow meter provides stable hydraulic conditions as well as local and remote sample flow monitoring. The AMI CACE determines the sample pH value by differential conductivities, other than maintenance intensive pH electrodes in samples with volatile alkalisation. The robust high-precision conductivity and temperature sensors and the non-linear automatic temperature compensation feature guarantees the integrity of the measured values.   

SWAN’s AMI Transmitters support all common interfaces and communication protocols.

Hinwil, Switzerland April 15, 2016 – SWAN’s AMI monitors V2.5 communication options support all common interfaces and communication protocols.
The AMI Transmitters enable digital, analog and hybrid communication covering the following protocols and interfaces:

  • Profibus DP
  • Modbus RTU 
  • 3rd signal output
  • HART 7 Communication
  • USB Interface 

“Our multiple interfaces and communication protocols allow us to suit our customers’ requirements and implement our on-line monitoring system solutions into any plant” said Marco Brunner, General Manager from SWAN Analytical Middle East.
