Hydroponics is a method for growing plants that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Instead of planting in soil, hydroponics uses water, which allows you to grow plants in any area where a hydroponic system can be created and effectively maintained. Hydroponics also allows you to recycle water for additional conservation while creating a [...]
If you have a swimming pool at your home, it's important that you take the necessary precautions to maintain the pH levels of the water and the contamination of the pool itself. When the pH levels of the water in your home pool are at an improper level, swimming in the pool may cause a [...]
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 [...]
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.
Have you ever heard of zebrafish? If you’re not part of the scientific research community, maybe not. Believe it or not, zebrafish and humans share similar genetic and biological structures, making them a model organism. It’s important for researchers to ensure that zebrafish are being kept in nearly identical conditions across multiple habitats. Oxygen levels, contaminants, pH levels, and salinity can all impact fish health.
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.
To comply with EPA regulations, businesses are often required to monitor wastewater effluent or stormwater runoff. Potential polluters monitor pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and other parameters to ensure that the water they release into the environment is in line with EPA standards.
