New colorimetric analyser from Endress+Hauser
Endress+Hauser will be launching a new colorimetric analyzing system, the Liquiline System CA80AM ammonium analyser, designed for monitoring critical control points in water and resource reclamation facilities.
The analyser and sample preparation system provides a modern approach to process control and regulatory compliance, and will be extended as a platform across a range of measurement parameters.
The Liquiline CA80AM analyser will be available in October.
The CA80 analyser utilises the Liquiline electronics platform, allowing for consistency across analytical measurements, while providing for fast commissioning and reliable operation.
When needed to measure more than ammonium near the analyser, the Liquiline electronics platform in the analyser allows for the creation of a complete measuring system by connecting up to four analytical sensors with Memosens protocol, such as dissolved oxygen, total suspended solids, chlorine, and pH.
Costs for colorimetric analysers are highly dependent on the volume of reagents consumed and the reagent lifetime.
The CA80 is designed with positive displacement dispensers for reagent dosing and cooling systems.
This reduces consumption, with an extended reagent lifetime for up to six months.
Integrated automatic cleaning and calibration ensure reliable work without manual intervention over extended periods of time.
The primary focus in water resource recovery facilities is to protect receiving waters, for which there are strict compliance limits that require proper ammonia processing and control.
Aeration basin control based on ammonia load allows for proper nutrient removal, while reducing energy demands from excess blower operation.
Other features of the new system include high precision for all critical control points, various filtering methods, automatic backwash system to keep filters clean and a peltier cooler that is controlled automatically by the analyser's electronics, with no required maintenance.
