Understanding the Science Behind Turbidity Sensors and How they Work

2021-09-13T20:37:22-07:00By |Industrial Water Treatment|

Turbidity is intrinsically linked to the quality of water. It measures the overall clarity of water by looking at how much light scatters when it hits the surface of a water sample. If the light scatters significantly, this indicates that the water has high turbidity. Some of the materials that can cause high turbidity include [...]
