Ozone sensor: Monitor water in critical processes
With the growing use of water sanitizing processes using ozone treatment, Mettler Toledo Thornton has released a new dissolved ozone sensor family for monitoring water for pharmaceutical and semiconductor applications. The new sensors interface with the Thornton M300 transmitter platform that includes conductivity/resistivity, dissolved oxygen, flowrate, pH, ORP and temperature measurements.
The company says the M300 transmitter is positioned to be the first choice for applications in the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, power, and ultrapure water treatment industries. Procedures for these industries include application-specific high-purity temperature compensation of conductivity and pH, pharmaceutical water set points for USP, EP and JP requirements, and include power industry computations of pH and CO2 from conductivity measurements.
The ozone sensor reportedly provides reliable and accurate response and requires only infrequent, simple maintenance. It provides stable measurements both in normal ozonation ranges and near zero, after ozone destruction.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
