Optical turbidity measuring system

March 2019 Analytical Instrumentation & Environmental Monitoring

Krohne has introduced the new Optisys TUR 1060 optical turbidity measuring system. The main application areas are quality or filter monitoring in drinking or cooling water circuits, or demineralisation processes.

The new analytical system employs 90° scattered light technology and is compliant to US EPA 180.1 and EN ISO 7027. It comes standard with

4-20 mA and Modbus RS-485 communication, and features improved usability, fast measuring response time, simple and cost-efficient calibration, data logging and low maintenance requirements.

Although the 1060 shares components with its predecessor, Optisys TUR 1050, and can be retrofitted, the system has been completely redesigned to provide improved usability and simple start-up and operation that require no special knowledge. For flexible use, the measuring ranges can be adapted according to the application. It can be calibrated with reusable calibration cuvettes in less than five minutes, without dangerous formazine contact.

The new system has an integrated data logger for storing measurement readings dependant on selected logging intervals, between 1 and 60 minutes. Calibration data and logged data can both be downloaded via the USB interface. The new instrument has low maintenance requirements due to a long lasting light source and automatic ultrasonic cleaning of the measuring cuvette, which provides for minimal wear, high long-term stability and short downtime.
