Solving the Water Quality Puzzle

Water treatment can be a complex problem to solve, depending on which contaminants may be present and the desired water quality. There are a variety of contaminants that can make water unsafe to drink, such as microorganisms, inorganic metals and other inorganic compounds, organic chemicals and radiologicals. The presence of certain contaminants like calcium, magnesium and iron may not affect the safety of the water, but can make it unpleasant to drink and more difficult to clean with.

A Digital Future

Water quality testing can be a critical part of a company’s process. Whether it is a screening method for different water quality parameters, part of a process that requires the addition or subtraction of chemicals, or even compliance monitoring for consumables and effluents, water quality testing is a major part of the quality control process.

Photometer

Company Reference: 

The eXact iDip handheld photometer uses the patented iDip4 reagent delivery method, a quick, safe and easy procedure for analysis. The methodology limits source of errors in results and provides smooth, precise reagent dispersion into samples without leaving suspended solids in the sample vial. The photometer provides wireless connectivity with Apple mobile devices. Data are transferred between the two devices when paired with the photometer using Bluetooth Smart wireless technology.  

TOC Analyzer

Analyzer

Company Reference: 

At only 18 sq in., the vario TOC Cube analyzer handles a wide range of samples, from ultrapure water to sludge. With large-diameter sample tubes — 0.8 mm — it easily handles somewhat turbid samples. The automatic liquid carousel can be swapped with a fully automatic solids carousel for samples with larger particles. An ash crucible protects the catalyst tube from plugging, allowing up to 3,000 samples to be analyzed without a reagent change.
