Monitoring Water Filtration at a Brewery

Although consumers focus on the flavour and alcohol content in beers, brewers know that the vast majority of their product is water. Water is what makes many of the well-known beers of the world so unique. For example, the Pilsen region of the Czech Republic is known for producing the pilsner, a pale golden lager…

Using the Backpack Lab™ Marine Science Test Kit in Education

Oceans are some of the most important natural resources in Australia providing commercial, environmental, and intrinsic values. Oceans provide 10% of human protein consumption in the form of fish and shellfish, are one of the world’s largest carbon sinks which helps mitigate increased atmospheric CO2 levels, and provide educational and recreational values.

Oxygen can assist in brewing efficiency, while simultaneously expose brews to adverse effects. Here at Hanna we have seen firsthand how our customers have used…

Environmental Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters: pH, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Turbidity

Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but…
