pH is a term used to define the intensity of a solution’s acid or alkaline condition. It is essentially a scale derived from the concentration of hydrogen ions in the solution.
HOW WE MEASURE pH IN REAL TIME
Real Tech’s pH/ORP combination sensors have been designed with a range to perform under harsh wastewater, seawater or high purity water conditions. The sensor features a long life reference with an innovative technology that increases the lifetime of the probe and decreases the frequency of cartridge refill. Ideal for many applications, the sensor features a quick response time, minimal flow dependence and low power consumption.
IMPORTANCE OF pH FOR DRINKING WATER AND WASTEWATER
It is a crucial factor affecting all aspects of water chemistry, and therefore plays an important role in many water and wastewater treatment processes such as coagulation, disinfection, chemical precipitation, corrosion control, oxidation, and activated sludge. The pH scale is usually represented as ranging from 0 to 14, where pH less than 7 represents acidic conditions while pH higher than 7 represents alkaline conditions with pH 7 at 25 °C representing absolute neutrality.
DELAYED LAB RESULTS LIMIT ACTION
Relying on grab samples leads to significant delays. When results come back from the lab, the information is usually of little value for process control and improving plant performance. Plants need a practical reagent less solution that delivers continuous information to operations personnel. Real Tech has the solutions to help our clients get the information they need, when they need it. Discover our real-time pH/ORP monitoring solution here.
