|Rugged and Reliable Instrumentation For Over 50 Years|
The legendary status of the Aquametrix differential probe is the benchmark by which all of our sensors are manufactured. Nothing gets the Aquametrix label unless we are satisfied that it will stand up to abuses in water that other products cannot. Water Analytics will never make a "me too" product. Every sensor and every analyzer that makes it to the marketplace is a world class leader. Everything you see in our catalog is best in class when it comes to durability, value and simplicity.

When I look back at 2016 one of the most significant and most satisfying trends I observed was the growing acceptance of ORP measurements, especially to monitor disinfection. To insure the killing of pathogens the measured ORP value provides an unambiguous indicator. The same cannot be said of measuring free chlorine, whose measurement must be combined with pH to determine disinfection efficacy.
The heavy-duty, industrial strength of Aquametrix probes have made them ideal for wastewater applications. But as Mark Spencer, President of Water Analytics and the manufacturer for Aquametrix, points out in this Water Online Radio interview, they are also being accepted by a growing industrial audience.
A dissolved oxygen sensor ought to be simple to understand. Whether it is membrane or optically based, it gives a signal that is proportional to the concentration of oxygen concentration in water.
A few months ago I received a call from an angry user who was using one of our differential probes and a controller. Embedded in the probe is a thermistor that measures temperature.
When we humans look at objects we describe them in terms of color. We say that an apple is red or a leaf is green. To us color is an attribute just as surely as the mass or dimensions of an object. But the fact is that color is a pure human construct. Take away the human and it does not exist.
Scientists spend their lives searching for simplicity.
Every day our technical support people answer questions on the selection of sensors for pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. No issue generates more confusion than cell constants for conductivity sensors. The vast majority of returns we process are for conductivity sensors that were ordered with the wrong cell constant. It turns out that cell constants are something that we all read but that most of us don’t really understand. Pick the wrong cell constant for a probe and your analyzer will happily give you numbers to 3 significant digits. The only problem is those numbers are wrong.

Mark Spencer, President of Water Analytics, explains his plans for Aquametrix and the Company’s new 2400 analyzer.
Everyone in the water and wastewater industry knows and measures pH. Conductivity is a concept we all readily grasp. Dissolved oxygen and free chlorine are easy to understand since they refer to actual chemicals. But ORP is another matter. If you know that it stands for oxidation-reduction potential then you are already in a select minority. And if you can really explain what it means then you are eligible. By Mark Spencer, Aquametrix
Mark Spencer, president of Water Analytics/ Aquametrix, sat down with Water Online Radio for this live interview from the show floor at WEFTEC 2011 in Los Angeles. Among other topics, Spencer shared his insight on new product development and the future of water instrumentation.
As a manufacturer, our technical support department receives a steady flood of phone calls or e-mails for problems concerning the measurement of pH and ORP.
Aquametrix - Rugged and Reliable Instrumentation for Over 50 Years. Made in the USA
AquaMetrix products have been manufactured for more than five decades. The company has grown into a worldwide maker of water quality instrumentation that is known for working in environments where nothing else works. Aquametrix products have been made in the United States since 2010.
The Aquametrix differential pH and ORP probes are found in the most hostile processes in industry. Where other sensors typically last months the P60 line sensor lasts years. Three series of conductivity sensors cover any application from ultra-pure to brine solutions. The P91 dissolved oxygen sensor has been installed in thousands of installations worldwide. Shark analyzers exemplify the Aquametrix reputation for simplicity and durability. The Shark controller and Shark TX handle a pH, ORP, conductivity or flow sensor with a simple menu change and comes complete for NEMA 4X operation with no added costs.
Under Water Analytics ownership, a steady stream of improvements have made existing products even better, while a suite of new products have been rolling out to supply more options to the water treatment industry. No other company offers a two year in-field warranty.
