If your research and production require accurate measurement of light scattering components, both in-line and in real time, then the Kemtrak Inline Turbidity Meter offers an ideal solution.
This easy-to-use industrial process fibre optic turbidimeter contains long-life solid state LED lamps and precision fibre optics to provide drift and noise-free measurement at extremely high precision.
Hassle free operation is ensured by automatic compensation of sample colour and fouling of the optical windows. The scratch resistant sapphire windows have no electronics or moving parts, making the unit appropriate for use in hazardous areas, as well as making them maintenance free.
Other benefits of this popular piece of kit from Kemtrak include:
• ISO 7027:1999(E) compliant
• Reliable and robust infrared LED lamp
• Extensive range of robust fibre optic measurement cells
• Analogue output (0/4-20 mA)
• Local and web based graphical user interface (TCP/IP).
How does the Kemtrak Turbidity Meter work?
The turbidity meter is made up of a control unit, flow cell and fibre optics, and is designed to measure the lack of clarity or “cloudiness” of a fluid caused by undissolved particles.
Modern turbidimeters use a technique called nephelometry, which measures the amount of light scattered at right angles to an incident light beam. Both transmitted light and scattered light at 90° is measured and mathematically combined using a ratio algorithm to calculate the turbidity of the sample.
The dual detection system and ratio algorithm then provides a turbidity measurement that has significantly better performance with coloured and/or light absorbing samples.
A long-life LED light source is used to produce reliable turbidity measurements from 0.01 to over 4 000 NTU depending upon the configuration of the optical measurement cell or probe. This means the Kemtrak TC007 is an instrument of high accuracy with long-term calibration stability.
What applications is the Kemtrak Turbidity Meter normally used for?
The Kemtrak is typically applied in:
• Filtration monitoring
• Centrifuge control
• Interface detection
• Phase separation
• Leak detection
• Oil in water
• Quality control
