The sensors are designed to work with the company's transmitter or analyzer
The Triton TR6 sensor is designed for the continuous measurement of suspended solids in various ranges—from 0 to 1,000 mg/L to 0 to 5,000 mg/L. The sensor emits a beam of 850-nanometer near-infrared light into the sample where it is scattered by particles suspended in the water. The amount of back-scattered light returning to the sensor is measured and correlated to the amount of suspended solids in the sample.
The TR6 response depends on the size, shape and composition of the suspended particles. For this reason, mg/L, ppm and percent solids measurements must be calibrated with suspended solids from the waters to be monitored. Turbidity measurements (NTU, FNU) can be calibrated with calibration standards such as Formazine, StablCal or SDVB beads.
Installation is accomplished with a 1-in. standpipe for immersion service or with the PVC flow cell for an in-line flow-through application. Either optical configuration is suitable for immersion service, while only the side mounted optical configuration is suitable for in-line service.
The Triton TR6 sensors are designed to work with the T80 transmitter or C22 analyzer. The Model T80 transmitter is a single-channel or dual-channel instrument. The Model T80 allows the suspended solids measurement to be combined with any of the other standard measurements available on the Model T80: pH, ORP, pIon, conductivity or dissolved oxygen.
