DO monitoring

Pennwell web 89 200

ITT Analytics has launched the new intelligent online dissolved oxygen (DO) probe FDO® 701 IQ. The probe is ideal for use in determining oxygen or residual oxygen in water and wastewater. With its faster response (T90 < 80 s) this sensor is suited when new and fast wastewater treatment methods like sequential batch reactors are used. The interchangeable membrane head contains a chip with factory calibration data. The soft green-light technology preserves the optical membrane, resulting in higher precision and longer life.

Ultrasonic flowmeter

Pennwell web 202 250

The ECHO Arrow Hunter Plus - Handheld is a portable clamp-on transit-time flowmeter for clean or dirty liquids. The ultrasonic sensors are clamped onto the outside of the pipe, thus eliminating the need to dismantle the pipe work and interrupt the process. The meters are great for checking existing flowmeters to confirm accuracy and reliability. Also, the can be used for checking flow on pumps for blockage, efficiency or damage. The meters will measure flow in metal or plastic pipes with or without liners from 3/8" to 118" diameters.
