Turbidity Meter and Suspended Solids Sensors – The Triton® TR86 is a infrared optical sensor designed for analysis of turbidity or suspended solids in water and wastewater. This online turbidity meter is available in two optical configurations, one with side mounted optics, for flow through and immersion service and the other with axially front mounted optics, for immersion service or vertical mounting in a piping system. The Triton® TR86 turbidity sensors are designed to work with the Model T80 Transmitter. The T80 Transmitter allows the turbidity/suspended solids measurement to be combined with any of the other standard measurements, S80 pH, S80 ORP, S80 pIon, S80 Conductivity, S80 Dissolved Oxygen or DO82 Dissolved Oxygen.

The Triton® TR86 Turbidity Meter and Suspended Solids Meter are available in two optical configurations, one with side mounted optics, the Triton® TR86-2 and the other with axially front mounted optics, the Triton® TR86-1. These design options address the fact that reflective surfaces in the emitted lights range will yield artifically high readings. The side mounted optical configuration minimizes interference from surfaces below the sensor while the axially mounted optics avoid interference from surfaces around the sensor. A daylight rejection filter blocks sun light and reduces ambient-light interference. The axial front mounted optics of the Triton® TR86-1 are surrounded with a copper ring that inhibits the growth of algae and other biological films.
