Turbidity Challenges in Water Industry


1. How important are dependable turbidity readings below 0.05 NTU to you?
2. How much maintenance and calibration are you prepared to do?
3. What level of consumables and maintenance manpower are acceptable to you?

Our Answers

1. There are few instruments that can read reliably below 0.05NTU without a regular cleaning regime even with post-filtration water. If you have manganese or iron, your problems are worse. There is only one way to avoid this problem…by avoiding the sample water contacting the optical windows.
2. We all want to have factory levels of calibration accuracy quickly, safely and at a low cost. The only way to achieve this is for the calibration reference to be instrument specific.
3. Compare the cost of maintenance and consumables that you are currently incurring to this value: ZERO. No consumables. No Maintenance.
