Innovative liquid quality management

AMS Instrumentation & Calibration continues to provide customers with a slew of local and global solutions that help streamline and strengthen the production process.

AMS Instrumentation & Calibration plays a crucial role providing instrumentation solutions in various industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, environmental monitoring, and petrochemicals, among others. 

These instruments are designed to accurately measure and analyse chemical compositions, concentrations, and other properties of substances, enabling precise control and optimisation of processes.

AMS has built an extensive and diverse range of products in its role as sole distributor in Australia, bringing cutting edge technology to the local market. 

Instrumentation in the AMS field encompasses a wide range of devices, including spectrophotometers, mass spectrometers, pH meters, conductivity meters, titrators, and many more. 

Each type of instrument is tailored to specific analytical needs, such as detecting impurities, quantifying components, or monitoring environmental conditions.

Calibration is an essential aspect of AMS instrumentation to ensure accurate and reliable measurements. 

Overall, AMS instrumentation and calibration equipment are critical components of quality control and assurance in various industries.

By ensuring the accuracy and reliability of analytical measurements, these processes contribute to product quality, process efficiency, and regulatory compliance.

Once such distribution partner for AMS is ECD (Electro-Chemical Devices.) 

ECD is a company that specialises in manufacturing industrial water analysers and liquid analytical productsAll of which have critical roles within food and beverage manufacturing. 

These products are designed to provide accurate and reliable measurements for various parameters in water and liquid processes, such as pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, chlorine, turbidity, and more. 

All of which have critical roles within food and beverage manufacturing.

ECD’s analysers are used in a wide range of industries, including water and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, power generation, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and environmental monitoring.

Their products are known for their durability, precision, and ease of use, making them valuable tools for monitoring, and controlling water quality and process efficiency.

Some of the key products offered by ECD include:

pH and ORP (oxidation-reduction potential) sensors and analysers: These measure the acidity/basicity and the oxidative or reductive properties of a liquid, providing crucial insights into chemical processes and water quality.

Conductivity sensors and analysers: These measure the ability of a solution to conduct electricity, which correlates with the concentration of dissolved ions. Conductivity measurement is essential for monitoring water purity and detecting contamination.

Dissolved oxygen sensors and analysers: These measure the amount of oxygen dissolved in water, which is critical for aquatic ecosystems and various industrial processes such as wastewater treatment and aquaculture.

Chlorine analysers: These monitor chlorine levels in water, crucial for disinfection processes in water treatment plants, swimming pools, and other applications where maintaining appropriate chlorine levels is essential for public health and safety.

Turbidity analysers: These measure the cloudiness or haziness of a liquid caused by suspended particles. Turbidity monitoring is vital for ensuring water clarity and detecting pollutants or sedimentation in water treatment processes.

Overall, ECD’s industrial water analysers and liquid analytical products play a vital role in ensuring the quality, safety, and efficiency of water and liquid processes across various industries.

AMS provides this cutting-edge technology to the Australian market and emphasises the importance of innovative analysers and other instrumentation to meet, and exceed, ever changing regulations and standards. 

Dave Grey, analytical product manager at AMS, said the company takes a hand on approach when it comes to helping customers find the right solutions for the re-sults they need, using EDC as a prime example. 

“The potential, or existing, customer reaches out to us, and we get all the relevant information,” he said. 

“We have our external sales engineers that are allocated in certain areas, and they get into contact with the potential or existing customer and if they feel the ECD solutions are suited then they will explain why to the customer. 

“They find out the range the customer needs, which is important and assists us to select the right sensor. Temperature is another critical one in selecting sensors because the material is important. And this is always just with cost efficiency in mind.

“For example, you’re not going to use high quality materials for a low temperature sensor if you don’t have to. And the same applies with ph. and acids and alike, where temperature can be critical with how the liquid will react with the material.”

Grey said the benefits provided by ECD solutions were numerous and when it comes to food and beverage, those advantages have a flow on effect.  

“There is a safety benefit by not having to be in close contact as often, which is important for harsh fluids.

“And on top of that you save money because the man hours required is less, it is just a digital display to take whatever reading you need. 

“They can be set up with alarms and relay outputs, or feedback to a DCS and relay outputs, or feedback to a DCS. 

“That would be the biggest saving, the other is maintenance on the units them-selves, depending on the sensors, it could be six or 12 months.”
