Measure phenol in water - 0 to 200 ppm
Phenols may occur in domestic and industrial
wastewaters, natural waters and potable water
supplies. Chlorination of such waters may
produce odorous and objectionable-tasting
chlorophenols. Phenol removal processes in
water treatment include superchlorination,
chlorine dioxideor chloramine treatment,
ozonation and activated carbon absorption.
Tytronics’ Sentinel is an on-line colorimetric
analyzer that measures phosphate using methods
that duplicate the procedures from the Standard
Methods for the Examination of Water and
Wastewater, APHA, AWWA, WEF. 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
Other advantages of batch sampling are:
Analytical results are not affected by sample
and reagent flows.
Analyses are only performed as frequently as
required, minimizing reagent consumption.
Provides continuous on-line analysis of water
or wastewater stream;
Ensures maximum reliability;
Ease of maintenance, rugged design;
Self-checking for easy diagnostics;
Minimizes sampling requirements;
Multiple communication ports, including
bi-directional RS 232.
Phenol compounds react with 4-aminoantipyrine
at pH 7.9 in the presence of potassium
ferricyanide to form a colored antipyrine dye.
This dye is kept in aqueous solution and the
absorbance is measured at 540 nm.
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.
