Multimetal Water Analysis System (MWAS)

3AWater Multimetal Water Analysis System (MWAS)

Features of current production version:

  1. Measures dissolved Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Pb, U simultaneously
  2. Low concentrations down to 25 ppb (µg/l)
  3. Fast in less than 10 minutes
  4. Easily with just 30 min training
  5. Without need for regular maintenance, calibrations or other time-consuming procedures.
  6. On-site anywhere
  7. With competitive pricing

Interested in performance and reliability of the analysis?
The MWAS has been validated by independent experts with real mining and environmental water samples.

3AWater single-use filtration set

The filtration set includes the 3AWater metal ion collector, a 0.45 µm syringe filter, and a syringe. A water sample is pumped through the metal ion collector and syringe filter by the purpose-built syringe pump. One set is needed for each measurement.

Nanotechnology used in the metal ion collector provides a large surface area, about 4000 times larger than the area of the filter, for the metal ions to get trapped to. The metal ions are concentrated there hundreds fold compared to original water sample.

The water sample is only in contact with the consumable parts eliminating the contamination issues and making the system maintenance free. The user does not need to spend valuable time in calibrating the system, washing the used parts or running blank samples to ensure reliable results. The MWAS is always ready for measurements immediately.

3AWater Accessory Kit

Everything needed for metal monitoring in a portable and easy to handle package. Accessory kit includes:

  • Battery operated Syringe pump for easy and repeatable sample filtration before the analysis.
  • Sample adapter for metal ion collector in a radiation shield for easy and safe analysis with X-Ray Fluorescence technology.

Handheld X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (XRF)

Handheld XRF is a portable instrument used to analyse metal compositions of solid samples such as ores, drill cores, soil samples, or metal products for more than 50 years. 3AWater technology broadens its applicability for monitoring waters. With 3AWater factory calibrations the instrument becomes a multipurpose analytical device for mining and metal industry.

Check the metal concentration from the screen of the spectrometer or send them with coordinates to cloud service for mapping the results.
