Having the ability to test water in the field gives your customer confidence, adds to your credibility, can help you close the sale, and can help with future servicing of equipment.

UVT is a measure of the UV light's ability to penetrate a water sample. The less UV light that is transmitted through the water, the lower the UVT.

UVT is measured as a percentage. Pure water (DI water) will read 100 percent UVT, and completely opaque water will read 0 percent UVT. The standard path length of measurement that is used for UVT readings is 1 cm.

UVT is related to the quantity of organics, colloidal solids and other material in the water which absorb and scatter the UV light as it passes through the water.
