Fluid Imaging Technologies
Fluid Imaging Technologies is introducing the FlowCAM particle analysis system at Booth No. 2445 at ACE08. The system automatically detects blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) so treatment can begin much faster, before there's a dangerous bloom.
The FlowCAM® cell and particle imaging and analysis system boasts a new breakthrough, patent pending feature that automatically detects the presence of cyanobacteria in water, takes hi-res, full-color digital images of each individual cell, differentiates the cells from harmless, non-toxic species of algae, and saves the images and measurement data for analysis.
Ideal for continuous use monitoring reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and other source water and recreational locations in situ, as well as with discrete samples, the enhanced FlowCAM provides images and data in real time to constantly track the growth of cyanobacteria, sound an alert at its presence, and permit treatment before it can bloom and release its harmful, sometimes lethal, toxins into the water. In addition to causing a range of adverse health effects, these cyanotoxins also cause troublesome taste, odor, and water discoloration.
The upgraded FlowCAM provides a proactive, preventative approach to cyanobacteria management that renders bulk fluorometers virtually obsolete.

ADS Environmental Services
The Department of Watershed Management for the city of Atlanta has authorized the Pitometer Group of ADS Environmental Services to conduct demonstrations of its Large Diameter Leak Detection Services. These demonstrations will be held at the ADS Booth 1849 on Tuesday, June 10.
ADS specializes in leak detection services for large water transmission mains and non-ferrous pipe where acoustics present a challenging environment for leak detection. Through an exclusive partnership, ADS provides these state-of-the-art leak detection services using the Echologics LeakFinderRT Large Diameter Leak Correlator.
A leak correlation will be conducted on approximately 1,300 feet of 30-inch water distribution line located on Marietta Street, five blocks from the Georgia World Congress Center.
The correlator sensors will be placed on hydrants on the north end of the line near Simpson Street and on the south end making a 90 degree turn onto Centennial Olympic Park Drive adjacent to the Embassy Suites Hotel. A brief baseline survey will be taken and then a hydrant located on the corner of Marietta Street and Latimer Street will be flowed briefly through a ¾-inch needle valve to simulate the leak to be correlated.
We anticipate being able to transmit the live results of the correlation onto a large plasma monitor at the booth if reception allows it, or the groups will be ushered to the “leak” hydrant a few blocks away to see the correlation in person.
This non-intrusive technique requires only a static connection to the water via the hydrants and requires little up front preparation.
