Wastewater monitoring specialists, Detectronic, are celebrating after the company won the title of Most Innovative Instrumentation Product or Digital Solution for its LIDoTT® Smart System at the UK’s WWEM Awards 2022.

Responding to the UK water utilities growing need for a range of low-cost sewer and wastewater monitoring sensors, the company commenced an ambitious research and development project to design, build and manufacture a range of highly affordable sewer network level monitoring products for widespread deployment across entire networks.

Four years in development, Detectronic worked closely with wastewater network management teams across the sector to understand their pain points. In 2021, the LIDoTT® Smart System was launched and now provides global water companies with everything needed to deliver a truly smart sewer network solution.

Commenting on the award win, Detectronic’s managing director, Neil Butler, said: “Just months after its debut, the LIDoTT Smart® System became our fastest selling monitoring system; we are all really proud of that. In January, the LIDoTT® technology was granted patent number GB2591274, which covers open channel fluid level monitoring apparatus comprising two level sensors with overlapping monitoring ranges. And the developments continue with the soon to be released LIDoTT Alarm; watch this space.

“Water companies across the globe continue to place orders for thousands of LIDoTT Smart® Systems. Thanks to its unrivalled accuracy and incredibly high-quality data, it has truly transformed the industry’s approach to smart network monitoring. Plus, it’s made it affordable.”

Concludes Neil: “We’re delighted that the LIDoTT® Smart System has been formally recognised amongst its peers with this prestigious WWEM award. We look forward to working alongside even more water companies to implement the product and watch it provide complete, real time network visibility and forecasting which will result in zero spills and pollutions.”
