ABB Aztec 600 Manganese Analyzer Optimizing Manganese Removal Efficiency

The task of managing the quantity and quality of potable water is unimaginable without online instrumentation to help water utilities to measure, treat and deliver drinking water to consumers. ABB’s Aztec 600 colorimetric and ion-selective electrode (ISE) analyzers have been designed to measure the key parameters that affect water quality – aluminium, iron, manganese, phosphate, color, ammonia and fluoride.

This application sheet looks at the issues associated with monitoring manganese concentrations in potable water supplies, including how it affects water quality, why it needs to be removed and how to minimize its presence to acceptable limits.
