Aqua-tools is increasing its fame on US market and in Canada, by promoting ATP quantification QGA kit, which is a biological indicator to follow active biomass concentration. Our methodology is used for performing a mapping of the whole installation and then to analyze all the different points of the network by comparing them to the « make-up water quality ».
More clear, more friendly: the new Environment & Industry catalogue is now available. It’s giving you all the information you need about our new kits and new references including all the consumables necessary to perform 100 or 50 measurements. (Example: QGA Reload)
Aqua-tools department « Health & Safety »
With the new « Health & Safety » activity, aqua-tools has become an innovating actor in the field of water filtration, The products, FILT’RAY shower and tap, are used to protect people against microorganisms present in water – Legionnella and total flora.
Aqua-tools has developed FILT’RAY Datamanager, internet platform especially designed for double tracking of filters installed in health care establishments. The system includes automatic alerts for filter replacement and localization of water points-of-use.
To face the compliance for monitoring of Legionella in production, storage and distribution facilities for hot water, think about the use of QGA technique to improve knowledge and control of your installation. Controlling water quality in a building is based on a global approach of risk management.
