Wastewater / effluent
The DCP007 is an advanced dual-wavelength photometer designed to accurately measure the colour or concentration of light absorbing liquids and gasses from 350 to 1050nm (UV-VIS-NIR).
A primary "absorbing" wavelength measures changes in the process medium, while a second reference wavelength that is not absorbed by the process medium compensates for turbidity and/or fouling of the optical windows. A reference detector is also used to compensate for changes in the primary light brought about by aging or ambient temperature changes. The resulting measurements are very accurate with low drift and long-term calibration stability.
Optic fibres are used to pipe light from within the DCP007 enclosure to the sampling point and back. This means that all the electricity is kept within the analyser enclosure, permitting safe operation in even the most hazardous of environments.
Optic fibres can be ordered in lengths up to 50m and are well suited for harsh industrial environments. Standard fibers have a silicone-coated steel jacket and can withstand temperatures up to 200°C. A range of robust flow-cell manifolds is also available dependent upon the process and application.
