Aug 2013 Press Release with BMI Mexico
(Stockton, California, August 20, 2013) — American Micro Detection Systems’ water detection product, REX, is now an accepted water monitoring technology for Mexico. This comes on the heels of AMDS’ product line receiving an ISO 17025 certification for accuracy and repeatability for their REX instrument. The ISO Certification comes from Alternate Systems LLC, a peer-reviewed, globally accepted ISO standard engineering house for measuring the accuracy of x-ray fluorescent systems.
As the regulating body for water technology throughout Mexico, CONAGUA* is at the forefront of clean water innovation throughout the Americas. CONAGUA considers water a national asset, and their mission is to ensure a clean water supply for both citizens and industry. CONAGUA recognizes the importance of AMDS’ REX as the tool to achieve these goals by safely and rapidly monitoring their water supplies, wastewater and industrial water.
After being installed to any water or flow system, REX is the only product that furnishes the user with constant, real-time data that can be accessed from any location in the world.
The Mexican government can utilize AMDS’ REX throughout their water infrastructure. The adaptability of REX will enable CONAUGA to monitor any of their flow systems. Mexico has 541 drinking water treatment plants in operation and thousands of municipal and wastewater treatment plants. There are 3,000 kilometers of aqueducts, 4,000 dams and large areas of irrigation or rain fed infrastructure in Mexico. REX can manage all of these infrastructures by delivering the most accurate unmanned water detection service available.
AMDS anticipates that through Mexico’s international reciprocating agreements, other countries will soon follow Mexico’s lead on accepting REX’s new unattended water monitoring capabilities. The AMDS distributor in Mexico is **Badger Meter, Inc. (BMI). AMDS CEO, Robert Keville, stated, “All the professionals here at the Badger Meter offices in Mexico City have done an outstanding job helping to make CONAGUA and all of Mexico aware of REX capabilities. AMDS could not have chosen a better Distributor in Mexico for our products.”
