system is suitable for monitoring Turbidity in effluent discharges, river water and inlet protection applications in ranges from 0-50 to 0-500 FTU.

Now it will be essential that the operator only uses instruments that have been independently quality assured in accordance with MCERTS
. In other words, they must be fit for purpose.
ABB says the achievement of MCERTS
certification means that its AX400 pH measurement systems can be used in applications such as the power industry and potable water treatment.
Visitors to MCERTS
2011 were introduced to new financial packages, which help to spread the cost of either renting or purchasing advanced environmental monitoring instrumentation.
This requires them to have their sites checked by an MCerts
inspector and to undergo an audit of the Quality Management Systems (QMS) relating to their flow monitoring arrangements.
The Bernath 3006 is also extremely popular--a portable, MCERTS
approved FID for the measurement of VOCs.
In practice this means that, if there are instruments or systems using a particular technology that have passed all the necessary tests and received an MCerts
compliance certificate, operators must use them.
"We got involved with the instrumentation and automation trade association Gambica to develop a certification scheme for instruments used in emission monitoring and that became the MCERTS
scheme, was harmonised with the German equivalent and standardised across Europe," Robinson says.
Aquamatic, leading UK manufacturer of automatic wastewater sampling equipment, have supplied an outdoor, temperature-controlled, MCERTs
Certified wastewater sampler system to Patak's Foods, where it is being used to help monitor effective effluent treatment through Patak's recently installed Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) plant.
It is in the application of these elements, in addition to having an understanding of the requirements of monitoring and the competent personnel to carry out self-monitoring, where MCERTS
is relevant and can ensure an optimum score.
In September 2004 the laboratory became one of the first in the UK to gain MCERTS
accreditation for its testing of soils.
