The new Navigator 600 phosphate analyzer from ABB Instrumentation improves ease of use and substantially cuts the cost of phosphate monitoring. The analyzer greatly reduces the amount of reagents and maintenance associated with phosphate monitoring, while providing high accuracy and reliability.

Aimed at phosphate-dosed high pressure boilers in the power generation industry, the Navigator 600 phosphate analyzer provides accurate monitoring of phosphate concentrations (0 to 15 ppm PO4) in a single device. The analyzer is available in single or multi-stream configurations, enabling up to six streams to be monitored sequentially. It provides current loop, ethernet, and optional Profibus DP V1 outputs.

Another in the new Navigator 600 series of chemical analyzers from ABB, the phosphate analyzer uses one tenth of the reagents consumed by competitive units. A carefully designed wet section reduces maintenance and adds remote management, automatic calibration, zeroing, and cleaning. The result is the capability for three months of unattended operation.

Additional benefits include:

  • user-programmable continuous or sampled measurements
  • comprehensive on-board diagnostics and predictive maintenance functions
  • a videographic operator interface with choice of data display formats, including chart, bargraph, and digital indicator views.


Operation and commissioning is straightforward, with menus presenting options for setting and fine-tuning parameters. Front-mounted pushbuttons allow easy device interaction in a familiar Windows™ environment, complemented by an extensive context sensitive on-line help feature.

The Navigator 600 analyzer also includes a built-in ethernet communications link with onboard web and ftp servers, enabling remote monitoring, configuration selection, data and log file access to the analyzer from a web browser.
