Following on from the success of numerous water treatment plants in the UK and Ireland, Pi is now beginning to offer the CoagSense coagulation controller to other countries in the world in an effort to help water treatment plants become more efficient and effective.

Termozipa Power Station, near Bogota, Colombia, has recently built a new water treatment works to provide clean water to the plant’s cooling towers from the neighboring river water. Coagulation dosing at the water treatment works will be automatically controlled by Pi’s CoagSense coagulation controller to ensure that the water is treated effectively, helping to improve water quality and optimize chemical usage.

Pi’s Julius Guth commissions coagulation controller in Colombia

Salt Cathedral, ColombiaSalt Cathedral, Colombia

Pi’s head office contact for Latin America, Julius Guth, recently traveled to Colombia and Mexico to visit distributors and assist with the commissioning of Pi’s first coagulation controller on the continent.

Designed to assist with the monitoring and control of coagulation dosing, Pi’s CoagSense coagulation controller can take in signals from several sensors and in this instance is using:

The installation of Pi equipment for such applications is made possible by Pi’s sophisticated Remote Access system which enables 2-way communication with onsite analyzers, allowing settings to be adjusted remotely from anywhere in the world.

Julius also spent time with Pi’s distributors in Colombia and Mexico, learning more about their latest projects and visiting water treatment companies. The trip wasn’t all work though! Julius had the opportunity to visit the underground Salt Cathedral in Zipaquirá, known as the ‘First Wonder of Colombia’. This spectacular cathedral is made up of tunnels and expansive caverns carved into the mountainside. Consisting almost entirely of rock salt, the mountain still has an active salt mine alongside the stunning cathedral.

Earlier this year, World Water Week 2019 was held in Stockholm, Sweden, where three winners of the Urban Water Challenge Award were selected from 226 companies across 38 countries.

One of Pi’s OEMs, Indra Water from India, was one of the winners of this prestigious award for their modular, self-contained wastewater treatment systems which will be deployed in schools and colleges in Mumbai.

Working together since July 2018

Indra Water Private LabelIndra Water Private Labelling

Indra Water’s wastewater treatment systems combine Pi’s water quality instrumentation with patented treatment technology, which removes water pollutants in a low-energy, chemical-free process.

Pi’s CRIUS® instrument controllers are fundamental to the treatment systems, providing precise data feedback to improve efficiency. Several of Pi’s sensors are integrated into the treatment systems to monitor the effectiveness of the electro-coagulation based process, including:

As part of the integration of Pi’s equipment, Indra Water ordered their own company branded labels for the CRIUS® analysers. Private labelling is a service that Pi can provide, in certain circumstances, for a small one-off fee enabling companies to incorporate Pi equipment into their own systems, as well as increasing their own brand awareness at the same time.

Pi’s head office contact for Asia, Julius Guth, who has been working closely with Indra Water to provide the best combination of measurement equipment to monitor their treatment process, spoke about the award:

“It’s fantastic for our partner, Indra Water, to be recognised for their achievements in providing an innovative and affordable wastewater solution for schools and colleges in Mumbai. I take great pride in providing equipment which not only helps to improve water quality but can also help to make a real impact on the lives of young people in developing countries.”

Julius spent time with water treatment companies across Vietnam, travelling from the capital city Hanoi, to the beach city of Da Nang and finally to Vietnam’s main business centre of Ho Chi Minh. This provided a real insight into the key relationships between water treatment companies and the Government.

All of the companies Julius visited showed a strong desire to work with Pi. Two companies were identified to act as official distributors of Pi’s products in Vietnam. Lappro Automation (with co-operation from Senco and Saigontec) will distribute Pi’s products for clean water applications, particularly focusing on:

Deahan (part of the Seiki Group) will distribute Pi’s products for wastewater applications, particularly focusing on:

The trip wasn’t all work though, Julius was able to take in some Vietnamese culture as he visited a fire-breathing bridge, the ancient town of Hoi An, the eye-opening War Remnants museum and even had a ride down the river in a traditional Vietnamese coconut boat.

When commenting about his trip, Julius said:

“It was an amazing experience to visit such a lively and vibrant country that never seems to sleep! I look forward to partnering with both Senco and Deahan and I will ensure that the other companies I visited in Vietnam have the opportunity to work with Pi through these distributors.”

Process Instruments (Pi) have always championed the development of employees, allowing them to grow alongside the business and develop their skill set through internal and external training.

Pi Apprentice Joins the Technical Support Team

Process Instruments - BenPi’s latest employee to undertake such a development is apprentice Ben Turner.

Ben started working for Pi in October 2017 as an Electrical Engineering Apprentice in the Manufacturing department. Here, Ben was tasked with building Pi’s CRONOS® and CRIUS® instrument controllers with a selection of sensors measuring parameters, such as streaming current, chlorine dioxide, ORP and dissolved oxygen.

Now in the second year of his apprenticeship at Nelson and Colne College, Ben has been asked to join Pi’s Technical Support team, providing immediate assistance to customers, distributors and the sales team. As part of his new role, Ben has obtained his Safety Passport and is now able to visit sites to see the analysers and controllers he used to build, in operation.

Regarding his new role, Ben said:

“I was both surprised and excited to be considered for a role in the Technical Support team. Since the move, Pi has provided me with fantastic support, especially Wes and Jonathan who I now work alongside. This is a great opportunity for me to develop my current skills and gain new ones, and I now hope to progress to the Higher National Certificate to develop my ability to solve electrical engineering problems.”

Ben hopes to follow in the footsteps of his mentor and Applications Engineer, Wesley Ashworth, who also started his Pi career as an apprentice in October 2011. Like Ben, Wes initially worked in Manufacturing before progressing to the Technical Support team and completing his Higher National Certificate.

Here at Pi, we currently have seven apprentices who are studying in a range of areas, from electronics to accountancy. In the past, three employees have completed their apprenticeships and the Higher National Certificate. As well as attending training events, some of these employees have since provided training to customers worldwide.
