Optical IR sensing turbidity analyzer
The Triton Turbidity Analzer (TR86) combines precision turbidity analysis with the flexibility to add a second measurement, including dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, oxygen reduction potential (ORP), conductivity or various pION parameters. ECD’s Turbidity Analyzer is designed with the advanced Triton TR86 Turbidity Sensor and the sophisticated T80 Universal Transmitter. The TR86 sensor measures suspended solids continuously in a choice of three separate ranges from 0 to 4000 NTU. With its optical IR sensing technology, the TR86 sensor emits an 850 nm beam of near infrared light into the sample where it is scattered by the particles suspended in the water. The amount of back scattered light returning to the sensor is then measured and correlated to the amount of suspended solid particulates in the water.
Designed for rugged wastewater treatment environments, the TR86 sensor is available with either side mounted or front axially mounted optics. These two options provide technicians with a choice to minimize interference from surfaces below the sensor (side-mount) or from surfaces around the sensor (axial front-mount). A built-in daylight rejection filter blocks sun light and reduces ambient light interference. The front mount configuration includes a copper ring sensor surround shield that inhibits the growth of algae and other biological films.
