Who is s::can?

s::can Messtechnik GmbH was established in 1999 out of the University of Vienna in Austria. It is a family business, owned by brothers since 2011 with 4 subsidiaries in Spain, the USA, China, and France. s::can has applications for the entire water industry ranging from drinking water and environmental water to industrial wastewater. It is a technology leader in online spectrometry with almost 7.000 spectrometer systems sold over 15 years.

Our relationship with s::can

Royce Water Systems has been the sole importer to Southern Africa for s::can instrumentation for over 10 years.

What does s::can do?

Spectrometer Probes

s::can is the inventor and leader in online spectrometer probes. Spectro::liser probes are the first and only instruments in the world that can measure optical spectra from 190 to 750 nm directly in liquid media. Substances contained in the medium absorb the light beam emitted by a lamp that moves through the liquid. After contact with the medium, its intensity is measured by a detector over a range of wavelengths specific to the application.

Other Probes

s::can also offer a wide range of electrochemical, optical and ion Selective probes. Parameters included are DO, TSS, NTU/FTU, Free & Total Chlorine, ORP, pH, Conductivity, Hydrogen Peroxide, Chlorine Dioxide, Peracetic Acid, Fluoride, Ammonium, Nitrate and Potassium.


Terminals & Software

The s::can con::cube has established a standard for industrial process control terminals. The large touch panel with a colour display allows menu-driven, user-friendly communication.  This includes all s::can sensors or any other digital (RS485) or 4-20 mA sensors of a different brand. This allows remote operation of distributed systems, either via telephone, radio, GSM, or GPRS telemetry. All available in one terminal.

Monitoring Stations

The s::can Monitoring stations are designed for online monitoring of multiple water quality parameters in clean or dirty water. A selection of probes and controllers are factory assembled with all the required flow cells, mounting fittings and pipework on a compact panel. This makes maintenance easy.

The fully modular monitoring stations combine s::can instruments into a compact and versatile system. The central location makes them easy to maintain and presents a complete solution, as the user only has to connect water supply and discharge (“plug & measure”) to receive a previously unheard-of variety of parameters at a reduced cost.
