Commercially available dissolved oxygen sensors typically fall into 3 categories: galvanic dissolved oxygen sensors, polarographic dissolved oxygen sensors, and optical dissolved oxygen sensors. Each type of dissolved oxygen sensor has a slightly different working principle. Therefore, each dissolved oxygen sensor type has advantages and disadvantages depending on the water measurement application where it will be used.
Reference poisoning is a major failure mode for pH sensors. This blog post explains the causes of pH sensor reference poisoning. We also share tips for selecting products that are less likely to experience reference poisoning, so that you can spend less time maintaining your sensors.
Cleaning your pH probes is essential to ensuring that they measure accurately. Unfortunately, pH probe cleaning can be hassle. Cleaning pH probes can mean removing them from your process and taking time out of your day. Learn how to spend less time cleaning pH probes, with flat surface self cleaning pH glass.
In industrial applications, cooling can be critical to ensure that processes do not cause equipment or products to overheat. Many cooling applications use water as a medium to absorb heat, because water has a high boiling point and high specific heat. There are many different ways to set up an industrial cooling system, but the three basic types can be summarized by examining how cooling water is used in each system.
There are several different kinds of sensors for measuring conductivity. Choosing a sensor that fits your application will improve accuracy and ensure longevity of your equipment. One important factor to understand before choosing a conductivity sensor is how to select a conductivity cell constant.
Different applications require different levels of water purity. As an example, the electrical conductivity of drinking water will usually be less than 1 mS/cm, while a semiconductor plant or pharmaceutical plant requiring very pure water would aim for the electrical conductivity of water to be less than 1 µS/cm.
From commercial pool chemical monitoring systems to DIY test kits, there are plenty of pool monitoring solutions available. Choosing the best swimming pool monitoring system is a matter of your specific needs. If you are monitoring a commercial swimming pool or aquatic center that requires regular maintenance, you should opt for an automatic pool chemical monitoring set up. If you are just trying to keep your pool clean at home, then you might be able to get by with something simpler.

Hurricane Harvey brought heavy rain and destructive flooding to the Houston, Texas area over the weekend and into Monday, causing many to wonder what the implications will be for water quality. Some feared that the drinking water supply would be contaminated, as water treatment facilities struggled to keep up with the deluge. Here is how [...]
What's up with the green pool at the Rio 2016 Olympics? The Olympic diving pool was closed Friday morning, after the water turned green. According to a Rio 2016 spokesperson, diving training was cancelled in order to accommodate cleaning efforts to return the pool to its normal blue color. The pool water first turned [...]
