The water shortage in some regions of Spain has already prompted the Spanish government to sanction strict regulations on the reuse and recycling of water (RD 1620/2007). Now the European Union is adopting similar processes and further tightening the regulations (EU 2020/741 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 May 2020 on minimum requirements for the reuse of water).
In order to guarantee the required strict quality standards for recycled water, instruments are needed to detect anomalies as early as possible within the process. Continuous monitoring and optimisation with the help of a particle counter is an excellent tool to be able to intervene in time during the treatment process and thus save time, money and resources. Precise knowledge of the size of the particles is crucial, especially in water applications of this nature, as this enables different types of bacteria or faults in the system, such as a filter breakthrough, to be detected quickly and countermeasures to be initiated immediately.
A PAMAS automatic particle counter provides an instantaneous accurate analysis result according to international standards. In the Murcia region in South-eastern Spain, a portable particle counter of the type PAMAS S4031 was recently put into operation, which makes a vital contribution to the continuous improvement of the treatment processes which in turn, ensures the purity and quality of the water.
