Reliable, User-Friendly CA-6 Online Analyzer for Total Nitrogen Measurement

The CA-6-14-A Online Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices is an easy-to-use, cost-effective measurement solution for Total Nitrogen. The analyzer accurately and reliably performs a UV Digestion and a Colorimetric based analysis. The CA-6-14-A Analyzer measures Total Nitrogen in the range of 0-30.0 mg/L.

Total Nitrogen is the combination of organic nitrogen and inorganic nitrogen (NH4, NO3, NO2) present in the sample. Total Nitrogen is a common measurement in drinking water and in municipal wastewater effluent.

Weighing less than 40 pounds, the CA-6 precision online sequential sampling analyzer is easy to install for the measurement of Total Nitrogen. It can be wall mounted or simply set on a bench. After the sample, waste and reagent lines have been connected to the analyzer and provided with power, the CA-6 is ready to begin its preprogrammed analysis sequence. The CA-6 is available with up to 4 channels (optional) each from a separate sample point. A simple, user-friendly menu structure and touchscreen interface makes it easy to access information or customize analyses.

In addition to total nitrogen, the CA-6 utilizes photometric differential absorbance to analyze over 20 other common parameters, including: aluminum, silica, phosphate, iron and sulfate. It offers repeatability of ±2% on the absorbance value if the turbidity <80 NTU and drift of ±2% per month on the absorbance measurement. It operates in a wide temperature range of 5 to 50°C.

The advanced CA-6 Analyzer improves ISE measurements that require significant sample conditioning for measurement accuracy. It reduces the volume of conditioning chemicals required and minimizes the associated waste. With the CA-6, the result is a faster, accurate measurement requiring fewer consumables with less waste to reduce overall operating costs—saving labor and money.

The CA-6 analyzer features a user-friendly touchscreen that displays the measured parameter, analyzer status, percent reagent volumes time and the Menu Bar. The menu bar provides access to the Run, Display, Program, Service and Help menus. The CA-6 includes two alarm relays and a 4-20 mA output channel that connects with PLC’s or distributed control systems.

Enclosed in a rugged, cold rolled steel cabinet that is epoxy powder coated, the reliable CA-6 features two separate compartments to isolate liquids and electronics. The liquids enclosure houses all the components necessary for sampling and reagent flow, mixing and reaction stages (sampling pump, reagent micro-pumps and colorimetric reaction cell). The electronics enclosure contains the main power supply, the controller printed circuit board assembly and the touchscreen interface.

The CA-6 can be programmed with numerous analysis configurations, depending on the accessories and the number of micro-pumps mounted in the liquids enclosure. Customizing analysis routines and accessing information is easily accomplished via the touchscreen with the unit’s simple menu structure and function commands.
