Powelectrics IIoT technology helps chemical plants comply with environmental legislation

The Task

Bonner designs instrumentation solutions, specialising in enabling compliance in highly-regulated industries. Bonner’s customer, a chemical plant, captures waste liquid in containment areas and cleanse it prior to discharge into the Council’s waste system. pH levels must be safe.

The Solution

Powelectrics’ lloT solution helps monitor, record and control the pH of discharged waste-water, including knowing the pH at time of discharge, flow rate and flow volumes. If the pH of the waste is unacceptable, waste is now automatically diverted back to the treatment area for reprocessing.

The Result

This Powelectrics m2m system protects the water quality for all stakeholders within the County Council water supply network and ensures reliable evidence of compliance with environmental legislation. Data can also be used for the general monitoring of production, trend analysis and identification of maintenance needs.


  • Environmental protection
  • Proof of compliance
  • Maintenance needs identified
  • Trend analysis
