Turbidity meter use to detect turbidity of liquids and aqueous solutions can be found here. The accurate turbidity meter is used in suspensions. There are hand-held turbidity meters or bench-top units. The turbidity meter for water works by infrared method or with the USEPA measuring technique. Turbidity is caused by undissolved, finely dispersed substances in a liquid. A turbid liquid has the property of scattering and reflecting light incident on it. The intensity of the reflected light provides information about the degree of turbidity.
The turbidity meter indicates the turbidity in FTU (Formazine Turbidity Unit), this unit is identical to NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Unit). The turbidity meter is often used in drinking water treatment. From a hygienic point of view, the limit values today are below 1 FTU. Our technicians and engineers will be pleased to advise you on these units and of course on all other products in our manufacturing program.
