    6/29/2017

    Water and wastewater treatment professionals are constantly looking for as much information as possible about the quality of their water. If knowledge is power, then understanding the properties of their water is key to running an effective and efficient facility.

  2. Application Note: Chlorine Measurement By Amperometric Sensor
    6/2/2009
    Chlorine in aqueous solutions is used for a number of purposes such as disinfection, taste and odor control, bleaching, and as a powerful oxidizing agent in various manufacturing processes. Chlorine is a costly chemical and requires large amounts of energy to produce. About 3000 KWH are required to produce a ton of chlorine from brine, and the delivered cost ranges from $160 to $300 per ton. As energy becomes more expensive, so inevitably will chlorine.

    While point level measuring approaches are regarded as simple and user friendly, they lack the capabilities of more sophisticated continuous measuring instruments.

  8. Dissolved Oxygen Measurement
    11/11/2013

    One of the most important measurements in the determination of the health of a body of water is its dissolved oxygen content. The quantity of dissolved oxygen in water is normally expressed in parts per million (ppm) by weight and is due to the solubility of oxygen from the atmosphere around us.
