Anaheim, CA—June 21, 2023—Engineers responsible for industrial rinse water, cooling or chillier water, plant water re-use and environmental effluent treatment applications will find that the TC80 Total Chlorine Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) provides highly accurate and dependable liquid measurement of Chlorine (Cl 2 ) in plant water at a lower cost.
The versatile TC80 Analyzer eliminates consumables, simplifies installation and reduces maintenance with a self-cleaning design to lower the total cost of instrument ownership over its long life. This reliable analyzer is a panel-mounted unit that is ready-to-use right out of the box. It is also fully compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Method 334.0.
The TC80 Cl 2 Analyzer’s total chlorine sensor is a precision three-electrode amperometric sensor, which measures all chlorine species in the water, combined chlorine and free chlorine. It is available in either: (1) a standard high-range configuration measuring Cl 2 from 0.05 to 20 ppm or (2) a standard low-range configuration of 0.005 to 2.000 ppm. This analyzer comes factory pre-calibrated to the chosen measurement range before shipment, which also speeds set-up.
Total chlorine is defined as the combined amount of free chlorine, chloramine, organic and bound chlorine in a water sample. The TC80’s Cl 2 sensor is a three-electrode amperometric sensor with a gold cathode, silver halide anode and 304 SS counter electrode. The TC80’s built-in pH sensor provides accurate compensation for samples between pH 4 and pH 12, eliminating the need for expensive sample conditioning systems to control the pH of the solution.
The TC80 Cl 2 Analyzer is a complete solution requiring no additional third-party components. Everything needed comes in one box from ECD and is assembled on a panel mount board. The plumb-plug-and-play design incorporates a flow control device, the pH sensor, the chlorine sensor and the highly intelligent T80 transmitter, which are all conveniently mounted on the instrument’s ready-to-mount PVC panel.
There is no special technician training or tools required for installing the TC80 Cl 2 Analyzer. Technicians simply connect the sample and drain lines, connect the power and outputs and the
analyzer is ready to use. The analyzer’s amperometric sensor technology and automatic pH compensation keep the cost of ownership low by requiring no inventory of expensive reagents on a shelf, tracking/ordering of reagents or valuable technician labor time to replace them.
With its automatic flow control and large flow tubes and cells, the TC80 Analyzer greatly reduces clogs and blockages, which are a common problem in other total chlorine analyzers and allows for easy cleaning. It also can be ordered with an auto cleaning option to keep the chlorine sensor clean from water contaminants for an extended period of time. This useful time scheduled pressure-spray washer keeps particles from adhering and building up on the sensor.
For user installation flexibility, the TC80 Cl 2 Analyzer is available with either 110-240 VAC or 24 VDC power. The TC80 graphically displays both the total chlorine and pH levels, which supports
easy trend analysis. The standard configuration has two 4-20 mA outputs and three alarm relays, 24 VDC or 110/220 AC power.
Users will appreciate the choice of MODBUS and/or HART communication that is available when ordering. Both digital bus communication options report Cl 2 analysis data directly to automated process control systems that can adjust Cl 2 levels in the process stream according to real-time conditions.
