Turbidity measurement

Fibre-optic turbidity measurement system AS82 / AF46 S

  • Diffused-light measurement
  • Compensation for outside light sources
  • Infrared measuring system
  • High-precision fibre-optics
  • Wide linear measuring range
  • High measurement sensitivity
  • Designed for online measurement operations
  • Measurement sensor can be sterilised or treated in an autoclave
  • Biologically inert
  • Reproducible readings
  • Applications: cell-density and growth curves in a fermenter or bioreactor, flocculation,turbidity, crystallisation monitoring, filter monitoring, detection of solids
  • Measuring principle: The regulated IR transmitter produces infrared radiation in the fibre-optic transmission line (1) and emits it, via the sensor, into the medium from two sides. High-precision reception optics (2) is used to measure the returning IR radiation at the fibre-optic reception element (3).

Portable turbidity meter MICRO IR

The portable waterproof turbidity meter MICRO IR with infrared light source (860 nm) is designed to measure turbidity over the range 0 to 1,100 NTU with a detection limit of 0.01 NTU in accordance with ISO 7027 / DIN/EN 27 027.

The automatic 3-point calibration feature makes unit calibration easy. All the user has to do is press the CAL key and then measure the 3 turbidity standards.

The unit is supplied complete with the turbidity standards (0.02 / 100 and 1,000 NTU) as well as 4 AAA alkaline manganese batteries and a 25 mm test vial.

Sludge level detector

Sludge level detector ET 640

Determination of the sedimentation characteristics and separation layer in sludge

  • Measurement via LED-display
  • Acoustic message support
  • Solid measuring head
  • Rechargeable battery operation
  • Single-key operation

The ET 640 is a portable unit for measuring the solid matter content and sedimentation characteristics of waste water in pools and tanks.

The probe is lowered into the pool or tank, and the LED display changes colour depending on the solid matter content. Once the probe reaches the separation layer in the sludge sediment, the LED display changes to the red zone. An acoustic alarm is also emitted.

The user can directly read off the depth of the various layers (clear areas or sediment layer) on the cable in 0.5 metre steps.

The probe consists of an impact-resistant plastic housing and is equipped with an LED light source, the light from which is received and evaluated by a photodiode on the opposite side.

The sludge level detector ET 640 is supplied in a convenient case with carrying strap, making it suitable for portable use. The unit supplies the user with rapid information on the thickness of the sludge layer in a sedimentation pool or tank.

Scope of delivery

Sludge level detector in a carrying case, including probe, 10 metres of cable (optionally up to 50 metres) and battery charger, operating instructions
