A Legacy of Clean Water

  Helping to maintain clean water is part of the Whalen family history, a story that begins in the mid-1990s with a father’s fervent belief that his research could make a difference and his son’s intense desire to ensure it did. Their legacy is the firm LuminUltra. Today, the company’s water monitoring technology provides the… Read More

Spotlight on Legionnaires’ Disease

  There has been no shortage of media attention surrounding Legionnaires’ disease over the last six months given a highly publicized outbreak in New York City this summer and the long awaited publication of ANSI/ASHRAE 188. With all of the attention being placed on Legionnaires’ disease (which certainly is warranted) it is easy to lose… Read More

Taking Biofiltration Process Control to the Next Level [Slide Deck]

  After initially developing our Deposit & Surface Analysis (DSA) test kit many years ago to quantify sessile build-ups on pipe or tank walls, we stumbled upon drinking water treatment via biologically active filtration as a process that could benefit greatly from this monitoring technology. As this type of pre-treatment emerged in North America following… Read More

Putting Firefly Tails to Work in Water Treatment [via the Telegraph Journal]

  Many innovations are inspired by nature – LuminUltra’s technology is no different. Find out how we use the same chemical found in a small firefly to prevent big problems for water utilities. This blog post is from a recent article in the Telegraph Journal, written by Science and Research Columnist, Martin Wightman. Visit TelegraphJournal.com for… Read More

Ultimate Monitoring Solution for Biological Wastewater Treatment [Infographic]

Wastewater treatment plant staff do their best to optimize the health of microbes in their bioreactor. However, without a direct way to measure active biomass, process optimization is very difficult achieve. Additionally, toxicity occurrence can cause the plant to deviate from effluent quality compliance and result in violations. These events tend to happen with little… Read More

The Economic Case for Microbiological Control in Fuels

  Individual retail gasoline outlets can potentially increase annual revenues by as much as $30,000 per year through a more pro-active microbiological testing program using LuminUltra’s Quench-Gone Organic Modified (QGO-M) test kit. Uncontrolled microbiological growth in fuel systems is one of the main contributors to filter plugging (Passman, 2001). If the microbiological population in Underground… Read More
