Dissolved oxygen refers to the amount of oxygen that has been dissolved into a water source, which could be anything from the ocean to a bioreactor. Whether your company handles the transport of live fish or is involved in wastewater treatment, it's essential that you measure and keep track of the amount of dissolved oxygen [...]
The conductivity of water refers to the ability of water to conduct an electrical current. A material like copper has a high electrical conductivity, which is why it's typically used as electrical wiring in a home. The high conductivity of copper allows an electrical current to travel through the wiring and over to a light [...]
Aquatic environment health is an essential component of making sure that all forms of life within the water remain healthy. Fish, bacteria, plants, and invertebrates all require a healthy aquatic environment in order to live and thrive. The best way to protect and take care of the aquatic environment is to monitor the dissolved oxygen [...]
Hydroponics is a method for growing plants that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Instead of planting in soil, hydroponics uses water, which allows you to grow plants in any area where a hydroponic system can be created and effectively maintained. Hydroponics also allows you to recycle water for additional conservation while creating a [...]
If you have a swimming pool at your home, it's important that you take the necessary precautions to maintain the pH levels of the water and the contamination of the pool itself. When the pH levels of the water in your home pool are at an improper level, swimming in the pool may cause a [...]
A pH sensor is one of the most essential tools that's typically used for water measurements. This type of sensor is able to measure the amount of alkalinity and acidity in water and other solutions. When used correctly, pH sensors are able to ensure the safety and quality of a product and the processes that [...]
When you hear the term boiler water, this refers to any water that's situated in a boiler or the pumps and piping surrounding the boiler for the main purpose of being evaporated into steam. Boiler water is used in many different industries for such applications as heating, sterilization, and humidification. These industries include metalworking, electrical, [...]
Have you ever heard of zebrafish? If you’re not part of the scientific research community, maybe not. Believe it or not, zebrafish and humans share similar genetic and biological structures, making them a model organism. It’s important for researchers to ensure that zebrafish are being kept in nearly identical conditions across multiple habitats. Oxygen levels, contaminants, pH levels, and salinity can all impact fish health.
To comply with EPA regulations, businesses are often required to monitor wastewater effluent or stormwater runoff. Potential polluters monitor pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and other parameters to ensure that the water they release into the environment is in line with EPA standards.

As a result of the risks posed by ballast water, many shipping companies have begun to monitor their ballast water tanks. Many governments have also implemented ballast water regulations. Ballast water monitoring is becoming essential for meeting regulatory requirements and protecting the environment. Every shipping company should have a ballast water management plan in place.
