Introduction to Lovibond: Water Quality Products - Sept. 15 2021, 11:00 AM ET (USA, Canada)
​ Lovibond® partners with a global network of channel partners to distribute our water quality products. Our authorized channel partners are invited to join this program where we’ll discuss how our teams can work together to generate ongoing revenue streams by focusing on the sale of simple colorimeters & what tools Lovibond has to help you be successful.This session will be hosted by Kaylie Boland and will be presented in English. 
Microbial Induced Corrosion in Cooling Systems - Nov. 17 2021, 11:00 AM ET (USA, Canada)
In cooling systems, the wet surfaces’ abundant growth of microbes leads to the formation of Biofilm which, if left untreated, can result in biofouling. This can lead to reduced plant life and reduced plant efficacy.  In this discussion, we will investigate why having a large microbiological population in cooling systems is less than desirable and why regular monitoring can minimize the potential effects on the system.This session will be hosted by Catherine Allen and will be presented in English.  
Turbidity Spikes: Real or Artifacts? - Oct. 20 2021, 11:00 AM ET (USA, Canada)
Your process turbidimeter saw “something” but was it truly a turbidity event, or was it a system interference that caused turbidity levels to temporarily elevate?  We’ll talk about sources of turbidity spikes related to turbidimeter sampling, measuring, and reporting along with approaches for troubleshooting and resolving turbidity spikes. This session will be hosted by Michael Sadar and will be presented in English.

The Laser Advantage
The ability to effectively scatter light from single or very low concentrations of particles is a distinct advantage that a laser turbidimeters have over traditional turbidimeters. We’ll discuss how laser turbidimeters have been found to be more effective in low turbidity applications such as membrane effluent performance or conventional filtration practices with optimized performance goals. This session will be hosted by Michael Sadar and will be presented in English.
Chlorine Testing in Industrial Water
Join us to discuss the pros, cons and the best application of the most common chlorine analysis methods used in boiler & cooling water treatment.
Dipslides: Best Practices & Practical Tips
In this presentation, we will discuss why dipslides offer a simple, cost-effective testing solution for routine microbiological analysis. We’ll cover the basics, review best practices, and tell you how you can use these results to make the best treatment decisions for a water system.This session will be hosted by Catherine Allen and will be presented in English.
Understanding the Impact of Light Source on Turbidity Readings
To select the correct turbidimeter for a facility, it is important to understand how different light sources and different measurement technologies work together, and how they impact your reportable results.
That Color isn’t Right – What Went Wrong?
We discuss the cause and effects of an incorrect color change related to common water quality tests and how to overcome this interference so that operators better understand the nature of their sample to make better decisions regarding the treatment in a water system.
Proving the Performance of your Turbidimeter
The measurement of water samples with low turbidities are susceptible to unique interferences that are not observed at higher turbidity levels. So how do we know the results displayed by a turbidimeter are correct or true?  Wel discuss how calibration procedures, verifications of readings, and the use of standards come together to satisfy regulatory requirements.

 

Our webinar speakers

Catherine Allen
International Application Specialist, Industrial Water. Catherine is focused on products for use in the Industrial Water Treatment Market. She is a graduate of Newcastle University having received a BSc hons degree in Applied Biology. After graduation Catherine immediately started work as a Technical Specialist for a test kit manufacturer working in both laboratory and sales roles. Now, with over 21 years’ experience in water testing, Catherine is often consulted with for her knowledge about test kit and product design for Industrial Water testing applications.
Kaylie Boland
Product Manager, Process Analytics. Kaylie is responsible for driving product marketing of Lovibond® Water Quality and Color Measurement products within the Americas. In addition to product marketing, she serves as the global product manager for turbidity related products. With over a decade of experience at Lovibond, Kaylie works across departments to bring top-of-class instrumentation to our customers and channel partners in support of Lovibond’s mission to create easy to use analytical solutions.  
Mike Sadar
Principle Manager of R&D, Water Quality Products. Michael has been involved in the design and application of turbidity instrumentation and standards for over thirty years. As the past chairman of the ASTM D19 committee of water, Mr. Sadar continues to serve on several committees that focus on water quality. These include an active role in ASTM sub-committees related to turbidity as well as ISO TC147 committees on water quality. He participated in the AWWA standardization committee for C671, which is a best practices document for online turbidimeters.  He has been awarded several patents related to the development of products and methods used to simplify the calibration and verification of turbidimeters. Mr. Sadar received his Bachelor of Science degree in analytical chemistry from Colorado State University.
