The Watemark PDF and Older Versions
The Watermark was originally conceived as a way of sharing technical tips, new product launches and projects from each department within Automated Water & Effluent Since 2007 we've been circulating copies of The Watermark to our customers and constantly surprised at the positive feedback we receive from people.
Technology is always moving on so we like to keep our customers up to date with recent developments. There are some technical tips that are timeless - so we've kept a full archive of each Watermark we've sent out listed below available as a PDF.

In the Summer Watermark 2015 we have a long look at our Rinse Water Controller which is specifically designed for the surface finishing sector. Water usage can be high in the plating industry and our rinse water controller is designed to reduce the usage of this resource, and of course reduce the cost associated with it too.
We're also taking a look at developments with our new liquid level electrode holder the LE8 which is designed to be simple, cost effective customisable to suit almost all applications.
We've also got a bit of a sneak peak at the 2015 Surface Finishing show too!
In the Spring watermark we have our new C+ Series of dosing pumps joining our heavy duty black dosing pump range. The new C+ Series are perfect for the precision metering of chemicals and the smaller footprint allows them to be installed where space is a priority.
With a huge turndown ratio and the ability to meter deliver up to 4.7 Litres per hour at up to 5.6 Bar pressure these pumps are great for most water treatment applications.
We also have details on simple liquid level control switches and how to dose where gravity may cause syphoning.
Our heavy duty, 'Tuff as old boots' black dosing pumps are back in the Winter Watermark, complete with their impressive turndown ratio and manual stroke adjustment.
We also welcome back Mandy Wardall to the team and announce the launch of our 2015 AWE limitedcatalogue. We also look to boiler water sampling and the measurement of total dissolved solids or TDS.
Finally in the Grapevine we look at a customer who's requirements highlighted the difference between using a turbidity measuring system to using a coriolis meter or Mass Flow Meter as part of a custom skid.
