DESCRIPTION

Potable water is used in various ways on board ships, including direct human consumption, food preparation and sanitation/hygiene activities.

Regular monitoring is necessary to ensure that safe water quality is maintained, as each step in the water transfer chain provides an opportunity for contamination.

CHEMO MARINE POTABLE WATER TEST KIT contains everything needed to monitor the drinking water onboard in compliance to WHO guidelines, ILO 178 (2009), MLC (Maritime Labour Convention, 2006) and IHR (International Health Regulations, 2005) requirements.

Watch a tutorial video on how to use the Marine Potable Water Test Kit:

 

APPLICATION

One sample should be directly from the tank and one sample at the furthest point of the distribution system (e.g. the tap at the bridge deck). The tank sample gives information about the quality of the water supply on board, while the bridge sample gives information about the quality of the water for the consumer.

It is recommended that Microbial Load be monitored at representative taps (e.g. drinking fountains). Monitoring should take place at each major servicing, in addition to regular spot checks while in service.

Records of readings must be documented. Documentation should be maintained for 12 months and should be available.

 

TEST KIT CONTENTS

MARINE POTABLE WATER TEST KIT contains all necessary equipment and reagents, with replacements readily available. Step-by-step instructions included.

Monitoring Chemical Parameters:
For chemical hazards, the kit utilizes a precise digital colorimeter instrument. Both Free & Total Chlorine tests are U.S. EPA-approved DPD. No calibration or any buffer solutions are needed. Robust, light, waterproof, easy and accurate even for untrained personnel. All measurements are taken with only 4 intuitive buttons.

Monitoring Microbial Load:
All common parameters are monitored; i.e. HPC, Enterobacteria, Total Coliforms and Escherichia coli (E.Coli).

The microbial monitoring tests that CHEMO offers give both the presence or not of Microbial Load, as well as a semi-quantitative estimation of the Load, so that precise actions are taken.

Microbial Load requires incubation. This can be achieved if samples are left at room temperature (20-25°C) for 2-3 days.

Expedited results can be obtained within 24 hrs using the light weight -just over 1kg- Mini-Incubator that CHEMO offers. Comes in a two voltage version -110 V or 220V- a multirack and a thermometer. Robust and easy to clean.
