Measurement of ATP: A New Tool for Measuring and Managing Water Treatment and Water Distribution Systems WEBINAR
WEBINAR TYPE: Technical Webinar
SUMMARY: Measurement of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) offers the potential for real-time detection of total microorganisms in municipal drinking water systems. This methodology is also beneficial in a number of wastewater and industrial applications. For drinking water applications, measurement of ATP can provide valuable information about growth of biofilm in distribution systems, as well as potential or pending onset of nitrification in systems practicing chloramination. And, with growing interest in biological treatment, the measurement of ATP will become an important measurement for operation and control of the treatment process and maintenance of distribution system components. Luminescent test methods can provide results in about 5 minutes, compared to days for other microbiological test methods, such as heterotrophic plate counts. This webinar will explore the significance of ATP, the application for its measurement in water treatment and water distribution systems, and a step-by-step description of a 2nd Generation ATP measurement method that can be completed in the laboratory or in the field.
