Reducing Plastic and Sewage Spills in Waterways and Oceans

image11

Retrofit end of pipe  containment weirs can proactively reduce aquatic pollution by containing the spills of sewage and plastics into the oceans. Battery, Solar or Mains Powered these pollution reduction weirs have deployed by Network Member Radio Data Networks since 2015 and have demonstratively delivered a positive outcomes to reduce aquatic pollution.

CSO Containment Weirs are available with both local sensor and remote activation options and can form part of a Modern Smart Sensor Network to proactively reduce marine pollution 

Reducing the BOD and Wastewater Discharges and Reducing Energy

Pollution Reduction and energy efficiency savings in sewage treatment by injecting enriched dissolved oxygen into sewage oxygenation ditches and lagoons. Brought to the UK by Member Oxfiniti this technology can improve both the quality of final effluent discharged and reduce energy consumption at sewage treatment plants. The System is portable making it ideal for deployment during maintenance or to assist to increased seasonal loading or events such as concerts. 

Also suitable for emergency deployment to increase the DO level in polluted rivers, streams and water bodies.

Retrofit Regulators to Reduce Sewer Flooding and Lower the Cost of Connecting New Developments to Existing Networks

image13

Sewer networks have a finite capacity and increasing their capacity to accommodate new loads or to prevent sewer flooding related pollution and the overload of works can be disruptive, highly carbon negative and costly. 


Member Radio Data Networks, launched their Sewer Flow Regulator SFR innovative solution back in 2018 to enable low cost, retrofit flow regulation of the sewer and drainage networks. The 2019 versions of the SFR is PV Solar powered and can be serviced from the surface without the need for confined space entry.

Pollution Reduction - Real-Time S|ewer Blockage Detection in Sewers & Drains

image14

 First introduced in 2010 this pollution reduction technology can be installed in sewer and drainage networks to warn in real-time about blockages and hence prevent aquatic pollution from spills of sewage and plastics. 


The sensors can interface with existing telemetry and SCADA via cyber secure gateways. 

Preventing Pollution by Removing Human Errors from Sludge Blanket Monitoring

image15

First introduced in 2018 a retrofit  real-time monitoring system for sludge ballet monitoring at Sewage Treatment Works helps prevent the escape of sewage sludge containing micro-plastics. The system provides a total solution from stainless-steel mounting bracket to a Gateway that communicates to the existing works telemetry / SCADA ensuring the tanks are drained down and emptied efficiently before a pollution incident occurs 

Retrofit Pump Inhibit to Prevent Prevent Sewer Overload and Pollution

image16

A simple real-time multi-broadcast telemetry solution first introduced in 2011 to combat pollution from sewer overloads by permits multiple rising mains/pumps to feed the same sewer without risk of overload and flooding. 

Available to control anything from a single pair of pumps to up to six pumps in a single catchment area.

Iridium Satellite Pollution Monitoring

Pollution Monitoring via the Iridium Satellite Network. Thanks to our Members working closely with Iridium, our members can supply an almost unlimited number of sensing options that permit data to be retrieved from any corner of the globe without fear of obsolescence through cellular migration or loss of data and pollution incidents through NOT-spots. 

Thermal Stratification and Blue/Green Algae Control

image18

Nature can also create its own pollution. Our Members have the technology and expertise to control air curtains to reduce the growth of algae a common form of aquatic pollution that can kill fish, animals and humans alike. Key to combating this pollution is taking control of thermal stratification. Our experts have been deploying such systems since the late 1990's.

Storm Tank Level Control

image19

Storm tanks are an effective measure to reduce aquatic pollution during storms. However they are only effective if they are kept empty. This solution automatically requests the  emptying of an isolated storm tanks, to ensure that they have the maximum available and chance of reducing both pollution and surface water flooding
