Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Department of Environment of Henan Province has strengthened the water quality early-warning and monitoring of drinking water source as well as supervision of medical sewage and urban sewage according to the notice issued by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
Guangdong Infore Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter abbreviated to Infore Tech, one of the subsidiary companies of Infore Environment Technology Group Stock Co., Ltd.) cared deeply about the centre of medical prevention and control of epidemic. Knowing that Department of Ecology and Environment of Henan Province and Plan, Municipal Construction and Environmental Protection Bureau of Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone were in demand of equipment for wastewater monitoring, Infore Tech immediately offered two sets of pollution source and water quality monitoring integrated stations for Zhengzhou Qiboshan Hospital after overcoming multiple difficulties including lack of labour and accessories. The station could monitor various factors including pH, chemical oxygen demand, ammonia nitrogen, residual chlorine, Escherichia coli, etc. Finishing project design, production, delivery, installation, test and other tasks in merely five days, Infore Tech performed the speed of Infore again. Infore Tech's action in supporting the epidemic fight ensured the safe treatment of medical waste water and won praises from Department of Environmental Protection and hospital.
Zhengzhou Qiboshan Hospital, also called Zhengzhou "Xiaotangshan Hospital", was put into use on February 16. The total land area of the hospital was approximately 30,000 square meters. It was renovated and expanded from the original site of Zhengzhou First People's Hospital Airport Area Hospital to treat coronavirus patients. Here will become a "fortress" for Henan to fight epidemic, and the pollution source and water quality monitoring integrated station will be the last "iron gate" to check the discharge of medical wastewater.
pport activity received the kind care and encouragement from Wang Zhongtian, head of the Department of Ecology and Environment of Henan Province. On February 10, Wang Chunxiao, Deputy Secretary of Zhengzhou Municipal People’s Government and Director of Bureau of Ecological Environment of Zhengzhou and Wu Jiangtao, Director of Plan, Municipal Construction and Environmental Protection Bureau of Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone came to investigate and select the site. At the same time, Infore Tech urgently arranged manpower and resources for design and production.

FEB 16 Operating
Two integrated stations were installed outside the quarantine area of hospital, covering a total area of no more than 4㎡. The system applied fully enclosed pipelines to ensure the safety of maintainers. Maintenance can be performed at any time to ensure the accuracy of monitoring data.
Infore Tech designed the pollution source and water quality monitoring integrated station specifically for monitoring of medical sewage and urban sewage during the outbreak. The integrated station could additionally monitor the residual chlorine and Escherichia coli, which can effectively monitor the disinfection of sewage at the discharge port and prevent the spread of novel coronavirus through sewage. At the same time, the integrated station can change or add new monitoring factor equipment according to the needs of on-site monitoring, which meets relevant standards such as Technical Specifications for the Installation of Online Monitoring Systems for Water Pollution Sources (CODCr, NH3-N, etc.) (HJ 353-2019). The station has advantages of covering small area, short construction period, and low system cost. It is of great significance for emergency monitoring of medical sewage and urban sewage during the outbreak.
1 It only occupies a small area, which means less difficulty during land acquisitions for the station building;
2 It can be built in shorter period on site. After finishing the installation and test inside the factory, it only needs to be hoisted and assembled on site;
3 The system cost is low. Outdoor cabinets are used instead of monitoring stations to meet the requirements of on-site and on-line monitoring of conventional pollution sources;
4 It is equipped with heating and cooling air conditioners, which can be remotely controlled;
5 It can collect liquid waste for more than two weeks;
6 The system uses fully enclosed pipelines to ensure the safety of maintainers.
