Umgeni Water Success Story
2015-08-27 (KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa)

Automated Titration System

Umgeni Water, a state-owned entity, is one of Africa's most successful organisations involved in water management, and is the largest supplier of bulk potable water in the Province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Umgeni Water invested in upgrading their automated titration system to conduct pH measurements and alkalinity titrations a few years ago. This system was then further expanded recently to include conductivity measurements and also to automate their turbidity determinations by combining the system to work with a Hach turbidity meter. Their system now has the ability to analyse pH, p and m alkalinity, conductivity and turbidity in one setup. This shows how flexible Metrohm equipment can be to suit the needs of the customer.
