Fluid Handling Magazine, TR82 Turbidity Analyzer, Sept. 2

Analyser detects and measures turbidity in either clear water or wastewater

With its precision nephelometric turbidity sensor designed for use in either municipal or industrial water and wastewater treatment systems, the next-gen TR82 Turbidity Analyser from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) gives engineers a highly accurate solution to ensure their treatment systems are performing at high efficiency and at the lowest cost.

The TR82 Turbidity Analyser with its clear water sensor is designed for use in all phases of drinking water treatment and disinfection.

It is ideal for monitoring ground water sources or surface water storage lakes, basins lagoons or ponds, as well as in the control of clear rinse water and in filter rupture or backwash monitoring systems.

The system’s suspended solids sensor supports both industrial process and municipal water and waste treatment. In food/beverage plants, for example, the analyser is ideal for mixing and blending, and in paper manufacturing it monitors filtrates.

The TR82 also supports municipal wastewater activated and digested sludge treatments before effluent release.

The Triton TR82 uses the optical method for determining the turbidity. A light beam is directed into the sample where it is scattered by suspended particles in the water.
The amount of scattering depends on the amount of material in the water, the wavelength of light, and the size and composition of the suspended particles.
