The exclusive partnership between Quadbeam Technologies and Morton Controls shows the South African Dairy, Food & Beverage, Mining, Water and Wastewater Industries, just how serious we both are about providing quality products.

With its routes in New Zealand, primarily catering for the Dairy Process Industry, Quadbeam Technologies manufacture and develop Suspended Solids and Turbidity Sensors.

The story behind how Quadbeam came to be is an interesting one, and essentially was brought about by the need for a sensor that covered a few key areas, namely, not drifting due to contamination, not leaking through lenses, and able to produce data that was meaningful.

This was back in the 90’s and since then Quadbeam has evolved, producing sensors for other industries, Mining, Wastewater Processing, Food and Beverage, Stormwater Control, and Raw Water Intake.

Through Morton Controls, here in South Africa, one can measure and analyse Total Suspended Solids and Turbidity applications, using the likes of the MXD 75 and ssd20W sensors.

Further, Quadbeam Technologies use advanced optical technology for TSS and Turbidity measurements, in harsh industrial process environments. Their ranges cover NTU,FTU,EBC,ppm,mg/L or OD.

We look forward to more from the innovative team at Quadbeam Technologies and are proud to continue our exclusive partnership with them.




Anderson-Negele is a global technology leader, specialising in Instrumentation for the Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Industries, and Morton Controls in South Africa, has formed a solid business relationship with this dynamic team.

For many years, Anderson-Negele has been developing products for temperature and level control, pressure and flow measurement, and conductivity and turbidity analysis, making them an innovative company to control your processes.

Anderson-Negele strives to develop solutions for their clients, based on their particular needs, and can be seen creating products, which can be applied to the most demanding processes.

They form part of the Fortive Group of Companies as a “Fortune 500” leader in technology, and always apply the FBS (Fortive Business System) to all they do. A high quality product is always their desired outcome, and they are continuously working on improving their methods and processes.

UWT GmbH has been partnering with Morton Controls for a few years now, and we are always amazed at their ability to produce products to suit most applications.

They are a world leader in manufacturing measurement technology, for detection and monitoring of levels, and limit levels in any kind of bulk materials and solids.

UWT recently told us about a project they took on and we thought it a good idea to share to show how innovative and determined these folk are.

A leading copper manufacturer in Laos, who is also one of the largest copper suppliers in the Southeast Asian region, needed a reliable point level detection as a backflow switch for a conveyor belt handover station. The problem? The area surrounding the application was very dusty with vibration. UWT Level Control had a solution and recommended a robust rotary paddle switch and a Rotonivo® RN 3002 with rope extension. This was installed promptly, which has increased tensile strength and a dust-proof housing. The devices provided very precise level limit detection, as the sensors were unaffected by build-up of adhesion, and worked well with the PNP electronics.

UWT Level Control has a motto, “Solutions – Install and Forget” – which means you can literally walk away, confident that the level sensor has been successfully implemented into your process.

With technology in Level Control, UWT stands the test of time, an expert team always striving to find better Solutions.

We are proud to be associated with UWT GmbH.
