SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS) announced the purchase of leading-edge assets from TraceDetect Inc., a trace metals analysis and monitoring equipment company for the manufacturing, energy, mining and water markets, according to a press release.

The extensive product range of online and offline instruments from AMS and TraceDetect provide real-time data on disinfection byproducts and trace metals needed for regulatory compliance and optimization of contaminant remediation processes, stated the release.

The release reported that the design, support and development of the complete TraceDetect trace metals product range will be based in the AMS Research and Development Center located in Sunnyvale.

“Contaminants such as arsenic, chromium VI and selenium have come under increased regulatory pressure due to global concerns about their impact on public health and the environment,” AMS CEO Rick Bacon. “The ability to obtain high frequency data and adjust contaminant remediation processes in real-time to mitigate the impact of disinfection byproducts and trace metals is made possible through the use of online monitors and offline analyzers.”
