Process Analysis – Turbidity / Suspended Solids

Turbidity measurement

Turbidity measurement

Turbidity measurement is widely used in drinking water and wastewater applications. To address a wide range of applications, KROHNE offers different measuring solutions, from open channel measurement with the OPTISENS TUR 2000 to low-range measurement systems such as the OPTISYS TUR 1050.

The OPTISYS TUR 1050 is the best performing turbidity measurement system when it comes to fulfilling all the necessary regulations and requirements, e.g. in the drinking water market. Because of its optimised cuvette measuring system, it has the fastest measuring response time and lowest maintenance requirements on the market.

Suspended Solids measurement

Total Suspended Solids (TSS) is a key measurement for water, wastewater and certain industrial processes. Typically, TSS is monitored through periodic grab samples with gravimetric determination in the lab. Quantitative online TSS measurement is often done with absorption sensors. The TSS sensors like the OPTISENS TSS 3000 or OPTISENS TSS 7000 also provide immediate results for process control and reduce the need for the time consuming suspended solids lab analysis.

The TSS product line for the food and beverage industry and for the water market consists of 4 individual products – TS 1050, TS 2050, TS 3050, TS 4050 and is completed with a wide range of accessories like process connections, adapters, cables and a programming interface for the parameterisation using a PC.
