MUMBAI, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Designed for the field professional to test turbidity in drinking water, wastewater and surface water, the Compact Turbimeter is built around the new QuadoptiX™ optical bench. This new technology effectively uses two independent turbidity measurement systems for dual validation, resulting in improved reliability and accuracy - especially for samples with mobile or settling matter.
The device features several operating modes, including continuous measurement, averaging and Suspended Solids. It can also test for a range of 0 - 1050 NTU, with results also available in other units. Results are logged and tagged with operator and site identity information, along with calibration data for good laboratory practice (GLP) compliance.
The meter is waterproof to IP67, conforms to the ISO 7027 standard, and comes supplied in a hard case including stable calibration standards, test tubes, silicone oil and other accessories to provide the user with a comprehensive field kit for turbidity measurement.
