Y-40 "The Deep Joy" swimming pool, first opened in 2014 in Montegrotto Terme (PD), is indeed the deepest pool in the world with a depth of 42.15 metres, breaking so the record previously held by Nemo 33 in Brussels, “just” 34.5 metres deep. The pool contains 4,300 m3 (1,136,000 US gal) of thermal water kept at a temperature of 34 °C (93 °F). The pool features underwater caves and a suspended, transparent, underwater tunnel for guests to walk through. It includes platforms at various depths, ranging from 1.3 metres (4.3 ft) to 12 metres (39 ft), before the walls of the pool narrow into a well-like funnel which plunges straight down to 42.15 metres.
The heart of the plant installed by Culligan Italiana consists of four filtration systems, for a total flow rate of 720 m3/h, controlled through a panel assembled by EMEC on behalf of Culligan. Once again, the “brain” of this system is a MAX5 control instrument, mounted upon the panel together with four dosing pumps (three AMS pumps and a V pump), a filter and an off-line probe holder for amperometric cells. MAX5 can be programmed to manage up to 5 channels in order to control and regulate pH, ORP, chlorine (total, free and combined), chlorine dioxide, hydrogen peroxide, ozone, peracetic acid, turbidity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and temperature.
Along with a high-level programming, MAX5 systems, as well as other EMEC control instruments, can also be remotely controlled via EMEC online software ERMES. MAX5 makes the control of a complex and unordinary plant, as the Y-40, easy and safe.
