Treating water is a process that involves removing various types of contaminants from the water that your home is using or your industrial plant requires. When you're attempting to treat water, there are numerous techniques and methods that can be used to filter the water and effectively remove contaminants. One such treatment involves the use [...]
A water flow regulator is a common device that is used to maintain a specified flow rate no matter how the pressure varies throughout the supply line. If ever water is passing through the line at a high pressure, the regulator will close just enough to ensure that the water continues at a steady pace. [...]
When you hear the term boiler water, this refers to any water that's situated in a boiler or the pumps and piping surrounding the boiler for the main purpose of being evaporated into steam. Boiler water is used in many different industries for such applications as heating, sterilization, and humidification. These industries include metalworking, electrical, [...]
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.
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.
How do you know which industrial pH sensor is the perfect choice for your application? The different number of industrial combination pH sensors out there can be overwhelming. Before making an industrial pH sensor purchase, it is crucial to have a better understanding of your application and the conditions the sensor will be enduring while [...]
Water Treatment Methods There exist several mechanisms for water disinfection, including chlorination and chloramination, ozonation, and UV irradiation. Ordinarily, only one disinfection technique is used in a treatment train. However, there are potential benefits to combining water treatment methods in sequence, including energy and cost savings and a safer product water. Potential Benefits of Combination [...]
