Measure manganese in potable water
MANGANESE IN WATER
Manganese in drinking water is objectionable
primarily because its precipitation alters the
appearance of water, turning is a turbid yellowbrown
to black. In addition, the precipitate will
cause staining of plumbing fixtures and
laundry. The presence of manganese in water
supplies has been associated with the growth of
micro-organisms in distribution systems.
This growth can lead to reductions in pipeline
carrying capacity and the clogging of meters
and valves. Sloughing of the accumulations
often leads to adverse consumer reaction
including complaints about taste and odor.
Well yields are frequently erduced by
manganese deposits which clog well screens.
Subsequently, water treatment plants often use
Manganese removal systems to cope with this
problem. Frequent analysis of Manganese
levels with the Tytronics'® Sentinel series can
help monitor the effectiveness of such systems.
Tytronics’ Sentinel is an on-line colorimetric
One analyzer can be used to measure
Manganese in both:
The instrument uses a batch sampling technique
that allows the use of 0.25” tubing for sample
lines, so small amounts of solids will not affect
instrument performance. Other advantages of
batch sampling are that analytical results are not
affected by sample and reagent flows, and
analyses are only performed as frequently as
required, minimizing reagent consumption.
Provides continuous on-line analysis of water
or wastewater stream;
Ensures maximum reliability;
Includes self-checking for easy diagnostics;
Minimizes sampling requirements;
Multiple communication ports, including bidirectional
ENHANCED FEATURES OF TYTRONICS’ SENTINEL:
Programmable from 1 to 10 methods for a
single analysis compound;
Up to 3 different calibration methods;
Eight relay outputs, multi-programmable on
Alarm functions, including sample flow,
reagent level detection;
From 1 to 6 stream configurations standard.
