Solutions For Water: Quality And Treatment Management

Optimos Solutions’s ZAPS Technologies LiquID™ Station – a real-time, multi-parameter water quality analyser – uses hybrid multispectral analysis, a patented technology which employs three different optical measurement techniques – absorbance, fluorescence and scattering – using a single optical platform.

This approach allows the real-time measurement of a wide range of water quality parameters including BOD, E.coli, Total THMs, VFAs, Blue Green Algae and many more. Several LiquID stations are working in Australia on monitoring applications including municipal WWTP influent, WTP raw water and drinking water distribution systems.

Recently, Optimos added four new technologies to its portfolio –  the NEPSUS CBOM advanced wastewater treatment process, the Silecte disinfection media from Claire Technologies and an advanced remote communications and data management technology from Ayyeka.


The Nepsus Continuous Backwash Oxidative Microfiltration (CBOM) is a wastewater treatment technology process that is low-cost (both capital and operating costs) and ideally suited to decentralised applications including regional utilities, new subdivisions, resorts, mining camps and military bases.

It is largely independent of biological processes, which makes it robust and resilient to rapidly changing loads. Its modular design allows the addition of nutrient removal and disinfection processes (including membranes), enabling the process to produce a wide range of fit-for-purpose treated water qualities.

Claire Technologies’s Silecte™ disinfection media requires no power and no chemical addition. The germicidal effect is applied during the manufacturing process and the fluid stream, whether treated wastewater or potable water, has to directly contact the Silecte media surface for rapid disinfection.

Silecte does not contain or produce disinfection byproducts, so there is no negative environmental impact on the receiving waters and the applications are myriad – from POU and POE domestic drinking water disinfection to large municipal and industrial applications. Its reported log removal capabilities are impressive across a wide range of pathogens.


Ayyeka’s integrated cross-platform solutions are comprised of Ayyeka’s Wavelet hardware – the core of the monitoring kit – which collects and transmits monitored data. The Wavelet is preconfigured to autonomously operate best-of-breed sensors, enabling large-scale deployment of smart networks.

The collected data is seamlessly transmitted to a private cloud server, accessible through Ayyeka’s WUI-based data management system. Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and thirdparty integration are additionally available through an API.

Optimos continues to search out synergistic and complementary technologies and focus on providing holistic and managed solutions for water security.
