Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) said its Triton TR8 Turbidity Analyzer can optimize drinking water facility efficiency by monitoring turbidity in filter backwashing systems.

The analyzer operates over wide measurement range with output available in multiple units: 0.000 to 9999 FNU, or 0.00 to 3000 ppm, or 0.0 to 3.0 g/l, or 0 to 20%. The TR8 TA sensor features an error rate of less than 5% of reading with repeatability greater than 1% percent of reading.

Featuring a multi-path optical assembly, the first pathway is inside the sensor to a reference detector that compensates for changes in the LED light source caused by aging or other variables. The second pathway has a short path length through the sample, which is best for high concentration measurements. The third pathway has a longer path length, which is best for lower concentrations.

The Triton TR8 sensor electronics constantly adjusts suspended solids and turbidity signal readings versus the reference detector for superior measurement accuracy. A built-in digital filter helps to suppress potentially interfering signals while self-monitoring diagnostics assure high reliability. www.ecdi.com
