Before industrial manufacturing facilities are able to discharge the wastewater that they produce during standard business processes, these facilities are required to treat the wastewater. By treating this wastewater before it's sent into oceans, lakes, streams, and sewer systems, it's guaranteed that most of the contaminants within the water will be removed before the water [...]
A pH sensor is one of the most essential tools that's typically used for water measurements. This type of sensor is able to measure the amount of alkalinity and acidity in water and other solutions. When used correctly, pH sensors are able to ensure the safety and quality of a product and the processes that [...]
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.
At Sensorex, we’ve been helping pool owners and operators keep their water safe and clean for a long time. When it comes to pool water monitoring systems, we’ve seen it all. But there are a few pesky mistakes that we see time and again. Avoiding these pitfalls is often easy, and it can save you [...]
Sugar processing takes a surprising chemical journey. Initial extraction from crop plants such as sugar cane and sugar beets takes out sugars along with other dissolved compounds and fine particles. The juicing process is intended to remove pulp, but small particles will inevitably pass through the pulp screens. These non-sugar components are removed as the [...]
Dairy and feedlot management can be more of an art form than a science due to a lack of quantitative feedback in real time. One way of obtaining additional information about ruminant health is through the measurement of its stomach contents. When making alterations to animal management to improve dairy and beef production, pH measurements [...]
Electroplating is a common metal finishing process with several industrial applications, ranging from the purely cosmetic to the application of protective coatings. The process, which uses electric current to drive ions towards receptive metal surfaces, is sensitive to multiple key parameters and careful control is crucial to achieving desired plating effects. Several components, including the [...]
Soil content and quality is a key factor of crop health. Physically, soil material and density affects water infiltration and retention. Chemically, pH of soil affects nutrient availability and uptake. Biologically, enzyme content and bacterial content relate to the ability of soil to recycle nutrients and resist disturbance. While some soil characteristics are permanent qualities [...]
Water based inks for printing have gained traction as an environmentally friendly alternative printing ink. Instead of emitting volatilized chemical solvents, water evaporates from ink leaving behind pigments. Use of water-based inks has been limited due to compatibility with substrate materials, but they are successfully used in a number of applications including printing on paper, [...]
