Making Sense of Conductivity, TDS, and Concentration in Water Treatment

By |Conductivity, Water Measurement Tips & Tricks|

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.

pH Monitoring for Sugar Processing and Refinement

By |Food & Beverage, pH|

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 [...]

Monitoring Rumen pH for Dairy Farm Management

By |Food & Beverage, pH|

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 [...]

Conductivity Monitoring for Reverse Osmosis

By |Conductivity, Drinking Water|

When running reverse osmosis (RO), operational efficiency is paramount. The comparison between the rate of water production and applied energy determines the cost of the water produced. Taking the system offline to conduct routine cleaning and maintenance can increase production rates and efficiency or extend membrane lifetime. However, spending extra effort to monitor membrane integrity [...]
