Register Now! Important Covid-19 Early Warning Wastewater-based Epidemiology Webinar to be Held on January 12, 2022

Early Warning Wastewater-based Epidemiology Webinar

Extensive research has shown that people begin shedding the SARS-CoV-2 virus in their stools almost immediately after becoming infected. The virus's genetic material makes its way into the vast wastewater collection network, where it can be detected and quantified up to a week before individuals test positive in clinics, using modern sampling and analysis techniques. Public health administrators can use this early warning characteristic to control the spread better and prevent further damage by analyzing virus concentrations in specific facilities such as nursing homes and college dorms and selected neighborhoods or entire communities. This tested wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) approach depends on installing properly designed sewage surveillance systems in the study areas. In this webinar, Teledyne ISCO's Business Development Manager, Kaushal Trivedi, and Aquasight's CEO, Mahesh Lunani, discuss how to quickly develop and deploy a community-based underground sewage surveillance program for COVID-19 outbreak detection, including best practices for wastewater sampling, lab analysis, and the immediate delivery of actionable information to local public health officials and administrators. 


  • Wastewater sampling site selection
  • Sampling instruments - selection and installation
  • Sample optimization and SCADA control
  • Sample preservation and transport
  • Lab testing and minimum detection levels
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
  • Predictive analytics and advanced decision support tools including rapid identification of hot spots and high-risk areas
From this 45-minute presentation plus interactive Q&A session, attendees will gain valuable insight into community-based sewage surveillance, how to rapidly set up and operate an effective monitoring and detection system, and ensure it is well integrated for optimum public health actionability.

Magnetic Level Gauges

Magnetic Level Gauges

Magnetic Level Gauges (MLG) are widely used in the monitoring and process control of liquid level and interface in various industries, including petroleum, chemical, power, paper, metallurgy, and water treatment. They are appropriate for real-time, precise, safe, and dependable continuous process level measurement. 

The magnetic level gauge provides real-time level and interface measurement based on magnetic coupling and buoyancy principles, where the process vessel bolts to the Magnetic Level Gauge (MLG). A float with a 360° magnetic ring is inside the gauge chamber. Outside the chamber, there is an indicator with a vacuum glass tube containing a bi-colored two-face magnetic bargraph. The float moves in response to the level movement, causing the magnetic bargraph to turn and change color. Alternatively, a magnetostrictive transmitter provides a continuous analog or digital output.

The accurate liquid level is indicated or "read." The indicator employs hermetically sealed glass tube technology to show the process level clearly. It eliminates the common problems associated with glass gauges, such as vapor, condensation, and liquid leakage, among other things.

Typical Applications for Magnetic Level Gauges:
  • Boiler: Steam drum liquid level
  • Power generation: Auxiliary machinery liquid level (HP reheater, LP reheater, de-aerator, condenser and heating network heater etc), chemical water
  • Coal Chemical: Methanol, dimethyl ether, synthesis ammonia/urea, MTO, CTL, SNG
  • Silicon industry: Organic silicon, polycrystalline silicon
  • Petroleum and petrochemical: Oil and gas, ethylene, trimerization and etc.
  • Fine Chemicals: Methane oxide, epoxy ethane, aniline, PTMEG, BDO, carbon fiber, POM, acetic acid, styrene, rubber, crude benzol refining
  • Others: Metallurgy, paper-making, water treatment, biological, pharmaceutical, food and beverage etc.
