Innovative, the back story:

Innovative Waters grew out of the need to improve water treatment. By working closely with those serving in the field, we've been able to create products that help water treaters save time, money and work more efficiently.

The Old Technology

In traditional methods of flow measurement, a float, magnet, spring, or metal blade are implemented. In conductivity, 2 stainless steel rods or 2 graphite electrodes are used to measure the resistance between them when voltage is applied. Although these methods have served our field well, there are inherent problems: mechanical systems are prone to breakdown and contamination.

Example Problems with the Old Technology

  • Organic debris circulating in the system often interferes with the proper movement of the flow switch’s mechanical parts. Cooling towers pull down dust and dirt into the system; leaves and even lost birds can find their way into the water. In these instances, the flow switch gets stuck and can’t operate properly.
  • Even more problematic is when metal debris from piping sticks to the magnetic part of the flow switch rendering it useless.
  • As for conductivity, sensor readings often yield lower results as deposits accumulate on the electrodes. Constant cleaning becomes the requirement for accurate readings.
  • In conductivity sensors, multiple calibrations are required for a couple weeks after a sensor is cleaned to make certain it's working correctly.

The Solution

Microelectronics became a part of our nomenclature in 1958 when a new branch of electronics began miniaturizing electronic circuits and components.

Since then, microelectronic technology has revolutionized:
  • consumer goods
  • scientific and medical instrumentation
  • aerospace
  • communication
micro-electronic water treatment equipment

Micro engineering has made it is possible to fabricate bionic hands, heart rhythm devices, and bone stimulating apparatus. In Aerospace, microchips control takeoffs and landings of the shuttle, and they’re present in our everyday life, from cell phones to coffee makers.

It was only a matter of time to apply a proven technology in other fields to the treatment of water.

Using microelectronics for managing water treatment is a natural progression of our field, and the benefits of embracing this different and improved technology are many, especially in sensors such as flow switches and conductivity probes.
