8 Fouling the big problem for sensors and systems Anti-fouling technology is one of the most important support technologies for autonomous instruments Anti-fouling technology is one of the most important support technologies for autonomous instruments Protection against or prevention of possible fouling is of great importance for a maintenance- free function over a longer period (long-term stability) Protection against or prevention of possible fouling is of great importance for a maintenance- free function over a longer period (long-term stability)

9 Fouling, how does it work Gluey biopolymers Gluey biopolymers Animals, e.g. mussles and barnacles Animals, e.g. mussles and barnacles Algaes, e.g. green algae and brown algae Algaes, e.g. green algae and brown algae Microorganisms Microorganisms Result: Lose of data quality Result: Lose of data quality

21 Intuitive Operation

22 Principle of the watersystem Antifouling: 1. Freshwater 2. Acid Antifouling concept

23 Cleaning results Debubbler after 2 years without manual cleaning © BAH/AWI Iron impurities Cleaning with oxalic acid Rijkswaterstaat © Rijkswaterstaat

24 2 weeks no freshwater available Debubbler December 2007 Paranaguá Debubbler January 2008 with no antifouling

25 Maintenance and service easy removable sensor cap for service and calibration easy removable sensor cap for service and calibration

26 Data availability Anitfouling => high data quality Anitfouling => high data quality Telemetry (e.g. UMTS) => remote control, Data transfer, Error messages Telemetry (e.g. UMTS) => remote control, Data transfer, Error messages Cost optimising Cost optimising Continuous measurements Continuous measurements

27 Applications Continuous monitoring of sensitive water systems Continuous monitoring of sensitive water systems Automatic monitoring (Water framework Directive) Automatic monitoring (Water framework Directive) Alarms at high Cyanobacteria concentrations at water bodies Alarms at high Cyanobacteria concentrations at water bodies Continuous River monitoring Continuous River monitoring Harbour Measuring Network Harbour Measuring Network Monitoring and controlling of Aquaculture Monitoring and controlling of Aquaculture

28 Summary The 4H Aquacontrol provides solutions to most of the problems associated with long- term online monitoring of rivers, lakes and coastal zones. The 4H Aquacontrol provides solutions to most of the problems associated with long- term online monitoring of rivers, lakes and coastal zones. The flow trough system combines a easy maintainable sensor frame with integrated antifouling system and the possibility for automatic and remote controlled operation The flow trough system combines a easy maintainable sensor frame with integrated antifouling system and the possibility for automatic and remote controlled operation
