PTV 1000 with flow indicator

Next Generation of On-line Turbidity Measurement Mark as favourite

Part Number 6124683


  • Smart Interface - Rethink the Controller
  • Simplified and Streamlined Processes
  • Innovative, Low Maintenance Design
  • Unsurpassed Accuracy for low-level effluent measurement

Turbidity is the key measurement parameter for determining drinking water quality.  

To develop this instrument, Lovibond® Tintometer® assembled a team of globally recognized turbidity experts.  We tasked them with creating a new process instrument that addresses all of the issues customers struggle with while using their current turbidity systems. These advancements, along with the addition of state-of-the-art communications and user interface make the PTV 1000 and PTV 2000 the next generation of process turbidimeters.

  • Process Simplified - A New Approach
    Details matter. The development of the PTV Series considered every aspect of process turbidity workflow - from installation and setup; daily measurement and control; routine procedures such as calibration, verification and maintenance; to data collection and management.
  • Smart User Interface - Rethink the Controller
    We’ve replaced the need for a traditional controller with the familiar interface of a smart device. By utilizing a mobile device app, the user experience is enhanced by allowing quick and easy data viewing, calculation of statistics and access to operator instructions and useful tips.
  • Designed to Save
    Save time, money and water by using the PTV system. These instruments are optimised for drinking water applications with unsurpassed low range accuracy (below 1 NTU). It has a variety of features that help users save.
  • Regulatory Compliant
    The PTV Series has instruments that meet EPA and ISO regulatory requirements.
  • Fluidics Manager
    The Fluidics Manager is an additional accessory that streamlines sample flowing into and out of the instrument. This eliminates the need to install and maintain separate devices to control sample entering and exiting the sensor.  
  • Panel Mounting System
    A Place for Everything. The Panel Mount is an additional accessory that aids in the installation of key instrument components and accessories.
  • Two Ways to Interface
    Touchscreen Interface - All PTV Series instruments are supplied with an integrated touchscreen. All measurement settings and routine functions such as calibration can be managed directly with the touchscreen without the need for additional devices.
    AquaLXP™ Interface - The AquaLXPTM app is an enhanced version of the touchscreen. In addition to being able to perform all of the functions as the touchscreen, users have access to animated instructions of all procedures, advanced data analysis and statistics tools, complete maintenance and repair logs as well as the comfort of using a familiar device.
  • Wet Standards - for Calibration & Verification
    T-CAL Turbidity Standards from Lovibond® Tintometer® are primary standards that are US EPA and ISO compliant.  
    When you combine our T-CAL Turbidity Standards and our T-CALplus™ packaging, turbidity standards have never been easier to use.
