Helvetas Water and Hygiene Project 2014

SWAN has been supporting Helvetas' water projects for many years. Through the projects the locals do not only have access to clean drinking water but are also trained in the construction and maintenance of drinking water systems and of the district and local communities councils and their awareness on hygiene and health are raised.

This year SWAN is supporting a project in Burkina Faso, which lies in West Africa. According to the UNO Human Development Index, Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countires in the world. The goal of this year's project is to improve the living conditions of the locals through clean drinking water and improved sanitation. To learn more about the project click here.

Through many years of working with Helvetas, we can ensure that our donations are used rightly.

SWAN hopes 2014 has been just as memorable for you as if has been for us. We wish you a joyous holiday season and a New Year filled with peace and happiness.

The AMI Silica Family

Our first member of the AMI Silica Family is our AMI Silica, which was introduced in 2011. Our AMI Silica covers a wide range of applications (water steam cycles, cooling- and surface water) due to its wide measuring range.

One of our new family members is our AMI Silitrace, which complements our Silica Family. With its tempered photometer, it is suggested to use our AMI Silitrace for all low temperature applications as the instruments measuring range starts at 0,5ppb, which makes the AMI Silitrace ideal for applications such as Make-up Water, all pure water treatment systems and Condensate. Read more...

Our other new family member is our AMI Silitrace Ultra. This analyser is our designated Ultrapure Water & Semicon instrument. We are pleased to say that our AMI Silitrace ultra is the only instrument on the market which is able to measure low silica concentration levels to fulfil the strict limits of the new guideline of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (0,01ppb/10ppt). Our AMI Silitrace Ultra will replace our COPRA Silitrace.

The AMI Silica still remains the ideal instrument for Boiler Water and Steam application where the expected silica values are higher than 1,0ppb. Read more...

AMI Phosphate HL (High Level)


The new AMI Phosphate HL is available. Reliable measurement of high phosphate concentration levels is now possible with an easy to maintain online instrument.


The new photometer is using a colorimetric measurement according to APHA 4500-P C. Vanadate-Molybdate method. Features include sample flow surveillance and a low reagents detection level switch, making our new analyser a highly reliable, precise and accurate instrument.


With its wide measurement range (0.1 to 50ppm)
the AMI Phosphate HL is the ideal instrument to measure high level phosphate concentrations in boiler water and district heating plants. For cooling water and waste water applications, an optional cleaning module is available.

Swan Analytical Instruments of Switzerland is proud to announce the latest addition to our worldwide service and distribution network.

SWAN has become the leading brand for online water analyzers and instruments for water steam cycle monitoring and potable water process control in the Australia Pacific Region. For more than 20 years we have appreciated and valued our customer loyalty and have strived to provide the best quality products and services.

Osmoflo and its subsidiary Water Equipment Plus have been our distribution partner in Australia for the last 23 years and have grown into a successful international water treatment business and are further concentrating their efforts in this area of operation. As a result Osmoflo have made the decision to leave the area of business which involved the sale of SWAN instruments and analyzers.
This made way for Swan Analytical Australia Pacific Pty Ltd as our distributor in Australia.


International SWAN Distributor Meeting 2014

September 01 - 03, Hinwil Switzerland


Swan Analytische Instrumente AG has successfully concluded the 2014 International SWAN Distributor Meeting at its Headquarter in Switzerland last week.


More than 100 participants from over 35 countries have shared their success stories and market experiences. Open discussions about all aspects of instruments and applications in various industries as well as the introduction of our newly launched products are key aspects of our yearly meeting.


Workshops, presentations and social events during the three days helped us not only to discuss business related issues but also to meet old and new friends from far away.


We would like to thank all of our distributors who made the way to Hinwil and took the change to exchange their practical experience with their colleagues from all around the world.

AMI LineTOC - The elegant way of TOC measuring

Since its launch in 2011, many leading representatives of the pharmaceutical industry have been convinced by the benefits of our TOC-Analyzer, the AMI LineTOC.


To meet the specific needs of the pharmaceutical industry, we have listened to our customers in order to continually develop and improve our TOC-Analyzer over time.


The focus of the development of the TOC-Analyzer concentrated on three areas:

  • The precision and accuracy of direct UV-oxidation have been verifiably improved by means of technical optimizations
  • The analyzer can be reviewed at regular intervals by an automatic function test
  • The user-friendly design of the device and the possibility to also test grab samples, provide additional reassurances in operation


All these changes are included in our current analyzer AMI LineTOC, making it cutting edge technology able to cope with future demands.

Read more about innovations to improve the accuracy and reliability of UV oxidation direct conductivity TOC measurement methods in the attached article.

SIWW 2014





Meet us at the Singapore International Water Week, the global platform to share and co-create innovative water solutions.


Don’t miss your unique chance to gather comprehensive information about all our available services as well as our cutting-edge developments and technologies in on-line process water analysis.


As an example, we will present our turbidity meter AMI Turbiwell and its newly developed verification procedure. Due to the technology used and the design of this instrument, a calibration is not necessary. However, we developed the enhanced secondary standard procedure to enable operators to determine periodically if the instrument is still in calibration.

PPCHEM / SWAN Power Cycle Instrumentation Seminars 2014



This year will be the third year since its successful introduction in Bangkok, Thailand. The seminar series is going to make two stop-overs in Asia at the end of September 2014. Organized by Waesseri GmbH, publisher of the PowerPlant Chemistry® Journal, we are proud to be the main sponsor of these events.


The first stop will be in Manila, Philippines from September 22-23, 2014. For further information about the event and registration form see documents below.


The second opportunity to attend this unique Instrumentation Seminar will be in Seoul, South Korea September 25-26, 2014. For further information about the event and registration form see documents below.


The seminar series aims to expand the knowledge of cycle chemistry and the awareness for analytical instruments. For this reason it consists of a well-proven mixture of both presentations given by technical experts and a hands-on session in which the participants work with real instruments.

NEW: Analyzer AMI Codes-II HC


We have the pleasure to announce our newly developed analyzer for elevated concentrations of chlorine. It is especially designed for application in reuse water processing, wastewater and sanitation water where the usual disinfection concentrations are much higher compared to e.g. potable water processing.


While most of the analytical system is based on the well-proven design of our Codes-II product family we developed a new process-photometer based on the Iodometric-Method (AWWA 4500-Cl C) to provide the wide measuring range from 5 to 80 ppm.


The well-known Cleaning Module II can be connected and is especially recommended for wastewater and effluent applications.
