ABB AX400 dual input analyser not only monitors water quality, but can also cut costs for power utilities by at least 30 percent. Because it does the work of two separate input analysers.
“Staff levels in most power stations are being reduced to a minimum, which places increasing demands on equipment and monitoring devices,” explains Anil Bhatia. Product manager for analytical instruments.
This dual input analyser offers continuous, convenient in-line monitoring from a single unit, and actually does the work of two separate units. Connected to two sensors, it performs two conductivity measurements providing “before” and “after” water treatment readings.
It also calculates conductivity ratio for ion exchangers, percent passage and rejection for reverse osmosis units. And even infers pH readings without maintenance. Versions are also available with two pH inputs and a combined unit for both conductivity and pH.
For potable water treatment applications, accurate and stable pH measurement is required for optimum control at the coagulation stage of the process to minimise coagulation costs and treated water quality.
