FCL Free Chlorine Analyzer

FCL Free Chlorine Analyzer

The FCL free chlorine system is intended for the determination of free chlorine in fresh water. The FCL does not use an expensive sample conditioning system or messy reagents to control pH. Instead, the analyzer automatically compensates for changes in the pH of the sample using a membrane-covered amperometric sensor. The FCL is available in two options: FCL-01 with manual pH correction; and FCL-02 with continuous pH correction. In both options, maintenance is fast and easy. Replacing a membrane requires no special tools or fixtures. A screw cap holds the pre-tensioned membrane in place. And replacing the electrolyte solution takes only minutes.

Understanding Ozone Demand
By Thoram Charanda and Louis LeBrun, Pinnacle Ozone
Ozone disinfection is a proactive step toward addressing future rules on endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and other trace organics at both water and wastewater plants. While there are many aspects to ozone disinfection system design, the single most important factor in project success is a thorough understanding of your facility’s ozone demand profile.


A New Paradigm For Thermal Dispersion Mass Flow
By John G. Olin, Ph.D., Sierra Instruments, Inc.
Since the publication of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard on thermal dispersion mass flowmeters in 2011, there have been major advancements in the technology. A review of that standard and a discussion of technology advancements provide the background to understanding groundbreaking innovations in sensor design. That, along with a comprehensive algorithm facilitated by current hyper-fast microprocessors, has created a new paradigm for the measurement of the mass flow rate of gases by means of thermal dispersion technology.


Treatment Plant Modernized To Meet EPA Turbidity Regulations
By GF Piping Systems
The EPA revised its turbidity regulations, which required the city of Akron, OH to reduce its 95 percent compliance level for turbidity from 0.3 to 0.15 nephelometric turbidity units (NTU), a reduction of its combined turbidity of 50%. Further, Akron was required to maintain a 95 percent compliance of 0.15 NTU on each of its 25 individual filters, a new regulation that had never been implemented prior.


Meeting Radium And Gross Alpha Compliance
By WRT - Water Remediation Technology, LLC
A radium removal pilot study was conducted for the City of New Underwood, South Dakota. New Underwood’s water system contains concentrations of radium and gross alpha in excess of the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL). New Underwood selected Water Remediation Technology’s (WRT) Z-88 Radium Treatment Process as a possible cost effective solution for their radium problem.
