A multi-detector optical configation assures long term stability and minimizes stray light and color interference in the 2020 Portable Turbidity Meter
A multi-detector optical configation assures long term stability and minimizes stray light and color interference in the 2020 Portable Turbidity Meter. The unit is a compact, portable instrument for turbidity measurement where all readings are determined by the process of signal averaging over a five second period. This minimizes fluctuations in readings attributed to large particles and enables rapid, repeatable measurements.
Supplied with a 9 volt alkaline battery and an AC power adapter - the system can be used for regulatory monitoring, process water testing, and environmental water analysis in the field or laboratory. This microprocessor-based unit offers auto-ranging over the full range of 0 to 1100 NTUs and provides direct digital readout with a resolution of 0.01 for the lowest range with an accuracy of ±2%. The simple calibration procedure involves activating the arrow keys until the reading matches the standard. The microprocessor adjusts the factory programmed calibration curve accordingly. Two primary turbidity standards are provided. It incorporates an RS-232 port to interface with a datalogger or computer.
The sensor has earned the European CE Mark of compliance for electromagnetic compatibility and safety. This nephelometric turbidity instrument meets or exceeds EPA design specifications for NPDWR and NPDES turbidity monitoring programs as specified by USEPA method 180.1. There is also an EPA compliance reading mode that rounds the reading to meet EPA reporting requirements.
