Device can be used to monitor turbidity in filter backwashing systems
Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) has introduced the Triton TR8 Turbidity Analyzer (TA), which is designed to monitor turbidity in filter backwashing systems to optimize plant efficiency.
The Triton TR8 Clear Water Sensor can be used with all phases of drinking water processing, including filter backwash. The highly accurate Triton TR8 TA operates over a wide measurement range with output available in multiple units: 0.000 to 9999 FNU, 0.00 to 3000 ppm, 0.0 to 3.0 g/L or 0 to 20%. The TR8 TA sensor features an error rate of less than 5% of reading with repeatability greater than 1% percent of reading.
The Triton TR8’s sensor assembly relies on a long-life near-infrared LED light source (880 nm) and the 90-degree scattered light method in accordance with ISO 7027/EN 27027. The sensor is factory calibrated in FNU and is plug-and-play ready for applications. Two nonvolatile memory banks are also available onboard to store user-initiated calibration data.
The Triton TR8’s sensor was developed for rugged water treatment environments and designed to operate at ambient temperatures from –5 to 50°C (20 to 120°F). It withstands pressures of up to a maximum of 6 bar at 25°C and 1 bar at 50°C.
