Using ATP 2G to track biological contamination of potable or industrial water throughout a network helps improve progress and overall performance.

Within the water industry (reclamation, treatment, distribution, purification, etc.) and for all activities that use water-based resources (processing water, cleaning, disinfection, rinsing, heating, steam production, cooling, etc.), the biological burden of the water is a key criterion for quality.

An increase in the biomass is a general quality indicator that can signify:

• a health risk: the presumed presence of micro-organisms that are pathogenic to humans;

• a sensory risk: probable introduction of unpleasant flavors;

• a technical risk: potential for introducing biofilms or harmful micro-organisms into processes or equipment (corrosion, blockages, scaling, biofouling, etc.).

ATP 2G: a low-cost, all-terrain analysis

Even though ATP 2G cannot replace required analyses (for example, analyses required for water that is intended for human consumption), it is nevertheless relevant for real-time tracking of overall water quality in industrial applications or facilities due to its many advantages:

Other analytical technologies

Typical quantification methods for microbiological burden, whether traditional (culturing in Petri dishes, on slides, BART, etc.) or more recent (genetic analyses), require either a significant waiting period (44 hours for cultures) or a substantial investment (50-100 euros ex-tax each for genetic analyses). In addition, they have a clear drawback in that the results are not representative of the total biological burden.

Microbiological mapping

To monitor a complex aquatic facility (industrial processing plants, facilities for water purification, reclamation, treatment or distribution, water towers, reservoirs, etc.), users employ monitoring tools (surveillance tools) that allow continuous, low-cost monitoring of the biological activity of the water at critical control points (CCPs): upstream and downstream of a key step in the process, zones at risk of becoming polluted, efflorescence, biofouling, blockage, corrosion, scaling, etc.
