Real-Time Online Sensing – Network Management and Treatment Process Control
Recorded on Thursday, May 9, 2013:
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT;
4:00 - 5:30 PM BST
The use of real-time online sensing for process optimization and control in water, wastewater treatment, and management has steadily grown in the past 20 years. Cost and performance improvements in the available sensors and an increasing demand for data to feed process optimization programs contributed to this growth. As a result, real-time online sensing continues to see a high number of start-up technology firms and a high level of strategic corporate investments and acquisitions. With the breadth of real-time online sensor technology ever-increasing, BlueTech® Research actively tracks these technologies:
- Network-based pressure flow sensors offered by Visenti and i2O Water
- Rapid microbial sensors offered by TACount and iBioScan
- Real-time toxicity sensors offered by AMDS and Modern Water
- Online chemical sensors offered by Capilix and ANDAlyze
This webinar brings together leaders from different segments of the water industry –corporate, technology development, and utility – to delve into the issues surrounding this exciting niche of the water market.
Why is there so much interest in this area now?There have been a slew of acquisitions of analytical companies by venture capitalists, private equity investments and large water corporates (e.g. Xylem’s acquisitions of YSI, MJK Automation and Multitrode and Modern Water’s acquisition of Microtox and Cogent Environmental). The viewpoint of a corporate player actively expanding its analytics portfolio will provide insight into the expansion of this market area.
What is the technology landscape? A wide array of parameters comprises the real-time online sensing area. However, the area can be divided into two categories: network-based pressure/flow/temperature sensing and contaminant sensing. An understanding of the technological challenges, key markets and growth opportunities of these two areas is crucial in mapping the current real-time online sensing technology landscape.
What is the utility (end user) perspective? Ultimately, the utility and/or government serves as the gate keeper to the larger municipal market, deciding which technologies will be implemented. It’s important to understand the utilities’ priorities, which can include improving treatment and distribution efficiency and reducing the cost of regulatory compliance.

How It Works
Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00
A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
