Xylem’s YSI Product Selected For “Breakthrough Product Of The Year” Award

Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, announced today that its YSI brand P 700 IQ Orthophosphate Analyzer has been selected by Processing magazine as a Breakthrough Product of the Year for 2013. The P 700 IQ is used in wastewater treatment plants as a stand-alone analyzer or in conjunction with other sensors in the YSI IQ SensorNet 2020 XT continuous monitoring and control system.

“Our primary goal at Xylem is to develop cutting edge, innovative products that address industry challenges and solve our customers’ water problems,” said Chris McIntire, senior vice president and president of Xylem’s Analytics and Treatment businesses. “To be recognized by an industry-leading publication when measured against so many great products from our peers makes this honor even more meaningful.”

The P 700 IQ measures the amount of orthophosphate throughout the wastewater treatment process – from primary settling to the biological tanks and the effluent. The analyzer provides continuous data to help improve operational efficiency as well as verification of phosphate elimination in order to meet permit requirements.

Since phosphorus is the nutrient in short supply in most fresh waters, even a modest increase in phosphorus can, under the right conditions, set off a chain of undesirable events in a stream, including accelerated plant growth, algae blooms, low dissolved oxygen, and the death of certain fish, invertebrates, and other aquatic animals.
