• New video demonstrates Hach's easy to use, EPA-approved industry standard for online chlorine monitoring
LOVELAND, CO, Apr. 6, 2009 -- In an effort to support companies that must comply with the EPA Ground Water Rule (GWR), Hach Company has released a video demonstrating an easy solution for compliance. The video shows how simple it is to use the EPA-approved Hach CL17 Chlorine Analyzer for on-line chlorine monitoring.
The Ground Water Rule applies to all public water systems using ground water. The GWR requirements began in March 2009 with six months of investigative monitoring (IM) for source water E. coli for systems currently applying disinfection only. All other requirements for the GWR begin in December 2009.
"Using DPD colorimetry, the Hach CL17 is the only on-line continuous measuring technology approved by the EPA," noted Jim Huntley, Global Product Manager. "The CL17 is easy to use and maintain, provides unattended operation for up to 30 days, and requires no calibration because a zero reading is automatically taken prior to each sample."
In addition to requiring no calibration, the CL17 uses no-probe technology so there are no membranes to foul or replace, making it exceptionally easy to use and maintain. It provides static, accurate measurements of free or total chlorine.
For over 60 years, Hach Company has been developing innovative solutions used to test the quality of water, other aqueous solutions and air.
