Eco-Friendly CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer Helps Verify Copper Removal from Industrial Wastewater

Anaheim, CA—June 24, 2019—With its adjustable cycle time that minimizes costly reagent use and low maintenance, process engineers tasked with treating industrial wastewater containing copper (Cu) will find the precision CA-6 Colorimetric Copper Analyzer from  Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) helps them protect valuable water resources.

ECD’s CA-6 Copper Analyzer is an on-line sequential sampling analyzer. It automatically performs a controlled sequence of sampling, analysis and then results processing is performed and repeated using colorimetric methods. The colorimetric method of water analysis relies on an LED light source and a heated colorimetric cell, which has been designed for measuring trace amounts of Cu in water.

The CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer measures Cu using the differential photometric absorbance bathocuproine method.  The copper (I) ions form an orange-colored complex with the bathocuproine in a buffered solution at pH 4,5. Any copper (II) ions present in the water sample are previously reduced to copper (I) ions before the complex is formed. The absorbance intensity is proportional to the silica concentration in the sample and is determined at 470 nm.

The versatile CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer can be configured to measure copper or a wide range of other substances with a choice of multiple parameters:  ppb, ppm and mg/L.  It measures copper over a wide range depending on the cell size chosen–from trace levels of 0.05 to 1 mg/L (26 mm cell) 0,1 to 3 mg/L (16 mm cell) up to 150 mg/L with internal dilution.   It is highly dependable too, with reproducibility also based on the cell size: (1) ±20 ppb or ±5%, whichever is greater (26 mm cell) or (2) ±50 ppb ±5%, whichever is greater (16 mm cell).

Highly efficient for a low cost of ownership, the CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer features low reagent consumption to lower operating costs, reduce special storage and disposal costs of reagents and minimize technician maintenance labor time.  The CA-6 consumes only 1L (0.26 US gal) R1, R2 and 2L (0.53 US gal) R3 for the 16 mm cell /2L (0.53 US gal) R1, R2 and 4L (1.06 US gal) R3 for the 26 mm cell of each reagent every 30 days with 15 minute analysis frequency.

The CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer is equipped with a graphic touchscreen interface showing measured values and status information. It provides users with easy access to menus and functions in multiple languages. There is an integrated data logger onboard with USB download capability for history tracking.

Outputs provided with the CA-6 Analyzer include two 4-20 mA outputs for measured data, and it also includes a Modbus compatible RS485 RTU.  Four programmable SPDT relays are available to provide alarm capability.

The CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzers is designed with two compartments that separate critical electronics from the wet process.  The standard model is recommended for indoor use and rated NEMA IP54 for dust and water ingress.  The operating temperature range of the CA-6 Analyzer is 41 to 113 °F (5 to 45 °C).

The manufacture of electrical wiring, electronic devices and components, metals plating and processing, motors, sensors and even performance fabrics are some of the many industrial uses of copper (Cu). There are several processes available to remove heavy metals such as Cu from wastewater, which involve technologies such as adsorption, anaerobic treatment, membrane filtration, cementation and electro-dialysis.

All of the copper abatement processes have one thing in common—they require the accurate measurement of Cu before effluent discharge into the water system. The treatment of Cu in wastewater is complicated by the fact that Cu is both necessary to the normal functioning of the human body at the right levels and also is toxic to the body at higher than normal levels.      For this reason, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set a Cu maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 1.3 mg/L. The symptoms of over-exposure to Cu in water can include severe nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal issues, muscle pain, anemia, liver or kidney failure and even death.

New Highly Intelligent PPB Sodium Trace Analyzer Offers Flexible Operation and Economy

Ideal For High-Purity and Ultra-Pure Water Requirements In Power Generation, Electronics, Pharmaceuticals and More

Anaheim, CA—December 19, 2018—Engineers whose processes and plants depend on high-purity and ultra-pure water will find the new advanced inline NA6 Sodium Analyzer from Electro Chemical Devices (ECD) sets a new industry standard for performance, ease-of-use and economy to protect equipment from corrosion and ensure product quality.

A wide range of sensitive industrial processes and consumer products require high-purity and ultra-pure water.  They range from boiler and turbine corrosion control in electronic power generation to the production of sophisticated semiconductors and microelectronics to life-saving pharmaceuticals and everyday foods and beverages.

ECD’s new Model NA6 Sodium Analyzer features an advanced glass electrode sensor that measures sodium in water to the parts per billion (ppb), parts per million (ppm) or milligram per liter (mg/l) levels.  The sodium sensor’s measurement range of 0.1 to 10 ppb is based on the proven accuracy of ECD’s proven sodium glass electrode sensor for the online potentiometric detection of low ppb traces of sodium.

This ECD sodium glass electrode sensor when exposed to raw process or treated process water produces an electronic signal potential proportional to the log of the sodium concentration. The sample is exposed to a reagent vapor, which raises the sample pH to 11 to eliminate any pH or ammonium interferences that would affect measurement accuracy.  Highly reliable too, reproducibility is ±0.2 ppb or 5%, whichever is greater at constant temperature.

To ensure dependability and safety, the NA6 Analyzer features a dual compartment design.  The wet sample, sensor and reagent are all completely separated in one compartment of the analyzer from the electronics and user-interface display located in the second compartment.  The electronics are always dry and safe from moisture for superior reliability.

For maximum user flexibility by plant technicians, the NA6 features a dual-function design. When in continuous operation, it features a T90 180 sec (0 to 10 ppb) delay time. Its “grab sample” capability also enables the unattended analysis of manually collected samples. The results of external samples are stored in the analyzer’s data logger, which includes time and date stamping information for history logging.   

Ready to go right out of the box, the ECD NA6 Analyzer is easy to install by a single technician in less than 30 minutes with no special training or tools. All that needs to be done is connect the power, the sample line and the reagent lines.   The analyzer is then fully operational.

The NA6 analyzer offers a choice of a manual 1-2 point calibration mode or a 2-point automatic calibration mode. The 2-point automated calibration mode minimizes operator intervention and ensures the most accurate results are obtained.  Free selectable calibration intervals are available too. The results of the last ten calibrations are stored in the analyzer’s internal data logger.

The NA6 Analyzer includes a color touchscreen user interface with multi-lingual capability. It displays measured values and status information in a large easy-to-read format. The design is highly intuitive with full access to menus and functions.  The built-in data logger comes with USB download capability.

Two 4-20 mA data outputs are provided with the NA6 Analyzer, which are compatible with Modbus RTU485 plant control system communications.  Three onboard SPDT relays are programmable to set alarms. The standard power supply is 120/240 VAC, 50/.60 Hz, with an available 24 VDC optional configuration.

The rugged, long-life NA6 Analyzer operates over a wide temperature range from 41 – 122 °F (5 to 50 °C). Ingress protection is IP54 compliant.  For outdoor use, an optional cabinet enclosure is available for harsh weather conditions.

Simple to maintain, the NA6 Analyzer helps reduces plant measurement operating costs.  It features a low-reagent consumption design that minimizes consumables expenses.  There are no-moving parts to break or replace, ensuring a low life-cycle cost as well.
