Automation.com Featured CA-6 Colorimetric Copper Analyzer

Electro-Chemical Devices introduces CA-6 Colorimetric copper analyzer

Process and plant engineers treating municipal drinking water or industrial wastewater who need to monitor, remediate or remove harsh Iron (Fe) can use the precision CA-6 Colorimetric Copper Analyzer from  Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) with the goal to achieve desired water quality levels and protect water resources.

With its adjustable cycle time that minimizes reagent use and maintenance, the CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer is a solution to iron or other undesirable minerals. Iron ores are among the earth’s most common elements.  The human body requires iron for good health, but too much iron causes health problems as well.  While for industrial plant applications, too much iron can be a sign of process impurities, pipe corrosion or discharge effluent issues.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through its National Secondary Drinking Water Regulations (NSDWRs) recommends that Fe levels not exceed 0.3 mg/L.  The EPA’s NSDWRs are non-enforceable guidelines for contaminants that may cause cosmetic effects (skin or tooth discoloration) or aesthetic effects (taste, odor, or color).

ECD’s CA-6 Iron 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 with a ferrozine reagent. 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 Fe in water.

The CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer measures Fe using the differential photometric absorbance method.  In an acid buffered solution, ferrozine and iron react to form a purple colored complex measured at 572 nm.  The light absorption intensity is proportional to the iron concentration level in the water sample.

The CA-6 Colorimetric Analyzer can be configured to measure iron or a range of other substances with a choice of multiple parameters:  ppb, ppm and mg/L.  It measures iron over a wide range from trace ug/L to 10 mg/L.  Three separate measurement ranges are available depending on the chosen cell size: 2 to 250 ppb (26 mm cell), 9 to 500 ppb (16 mm cell) and up to 10 mg/L with an internal dilution module.

The CA-6 Iron Analyzer consumes its ferrozine reagent at 2.5L (0.66 US.gal) for the 16 mm cell and 5L (1.32 US gal) for the 26 mm cell.

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).

ECO Magazine featured TR80 Turbidity Analyzer

New Next-Gen Intelligent Optical Sensor Delivers Precise Turbidity Measurement

 

Water treatment engineers tasked with assuring reliable potable water treatment from ground or surface sources and storage reservoirs as well as those responsible for suspended solids in municipal or industrial wastewater effluent will find the smart TR80 Turbidity Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD), offers them a flexible and economical solution to safe drinking water or treated effluent suitable for release or re-use.

The new, versatile Triton TR80 Turbidity Analyzer features a highly-effective nephelometric turbidity sensor designed for use in water and wastewater. Turbidity, the cloudiness or haziness of a water sample, is caused by particles or solids suspended in the water, typically clay and silt, or fecal matter, or various industrial wastes. As bacteria and viruses can be attached to these particles and solids, turbidity analysis has become a critical indicator of overall water quality.

The advanced Triton TR80 Analyzer relies on the proven optical method with digital communications for determining turbidity and/or suspended solids. A light beam provided by the LED is directed into the sample where it is scattered by the particles or suspended particles in the water. The amount of scattering depends on the amount of impure material in the water, the wavelength of the light used and the size and composition of the particles or suspended solids.

Employing a long-life near infrared LED light source and the 90-degree scattered light method of detection in accordance with ISO 7027/EN 27027, assures users of highly accurate turbidity measurement values under standardized and comparable conditions. The 90-degree scattered light detection method is the industry’s most common sensor design for turbidity. ECD’s powerful sensor design is advantageous in that it provide high sensitivity for turbid conditions over the entire measurement sample range.

Next-Gen Optical Turbidity Analyzer

The versatile TR80 Sensor can be configured for both turbidity and/or Suspended Solids and connects via digital communications with the ECD T80 Transmitter or the ECD LQ800 Multi-Channel Controller for plug-n-play operation. Multiple standard factory pre-calibrated sensor ranges, as well as custom ranges upon request, are available including: 1 senor at 0.00-1000 mg/l or 0-1000 NTU, FNU; 3 sensors at 0.00-5000 or greater mg/l or 0-4000 NTU, FNU, ppm, mg/L; and 4 sensors at 0.00-30 mg/l or 0-30 NTU, FNU.

For ease of use and low life-cycle maintenance costs, The TR80 Turbidity Analyzer includes a simple optical configuration with an automated cleaning wiper to prevent the build-up of algae, oils and other contaminants. The wiper is pre-set at the factory to clean the sensor lens at regular intervals frequent enough to assure accurate measurement and reduce the need for technician manual inspection and cleaning, which over this instrument’s long life can add up to a significant operational cost savings.

The rugged TR80 Analyzer is available in four configurations: flow-through-cell, de-bubbler flow cell, immersion assembly and valve-retractable unit. Three choices of standard six-wire electrical connections are available with cable assemblies of either 10-ft (3.0 m), 20-ft (6.1 m) or 30-ft (9.1 m). It is designed for freezing to frying conditions operating from 23 to 122°F (5 to 50°C). It can take the pressure too, with a choice of multiple flow cell configurations available that withstand a range of up to 50 psi (3.5 bar maximum). The sensor body features wetted materials of CPVC or optionally POLYPRO® polypropylene material.
