The Huber Service Edge<sup>sm</sup> The Huber Service Edgesm

As you consider various technologies for your wastewater treatment application, the cost of the equipment as well as proper sizing and implementation are a critical component in the decision making process. However, sometimes how the machine is cared for after installation is not as closely scrutinized as it should be and maybe overlooked. We would like to take a moment to discuss features of what we proudly identify as the Huber Service Edgesm. What we mean by this is; from the moment you make an initial inquiry through the entire useable service life of the equipment, Huber Technology is committed to support you through the entire lifecycle of the equipment. This is backed up by five generations of tradition that demands that we take care of you, our customer. This is something that I observe as severely lacking and much in demand in our industry today.

Model 5350 Tandem PID/ELCD Model 5350 Tandem PID/ELCD
The Model 5350 Tandem PID/ELCD is a combination detector coupling a Model 4430 Photoionization Detector with a Model 5320 Electrolytic Conductivity Detector. With the detectors in tandem, simultaneous detection of aromatic and halogen compounds is possible, eliminating the need for two separate analyses. Its unique design eliminates transfer lines and uses only one detector port. Both detectors can be used independently, if desired. The PID/ELCD is available for installation on most GC manufacturer’s instruments.
