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.
The PTV Series is optimized for monitoring filter effluent in a regulatory environment. By focusing on helping operators manage routine workflows, the instruments deliver an easy to use system with unsurpassed accuracy when monitoring low levels of turbidity.
Every instrument has an integrated touchscreen display, which makes it easy to see current turbidity values and to assess the status of the instrument. Outputs and alarm status are always clearly visible, and can alert operators to an issue.
The flow body is easy to clean - there are no “nooks and crannies” where particles can settle. The body can be easily drained for cleanings or calibrations with quick-connect fixtures and collecting a grab sample for verification does not require the operator to disconnect tubing to access the sample. The low volume flow body allows changes in turbidity levels to be seen faster than competitive instruments.
All models feature a solid state light source which means there are no bulbs to change over the life of the instrument. The optical design has eliminated the chance for condensation and fogging, without the use of desiccants, and there is no risk of fouling the optical system with the presence of iron and manganese.
The PTV Series also makes it easier than ever to access and analyze data. Every logged reading, calibration and verification associated with a measurement module over its lifetime is stored locally, ensuring proof of routine data is never deleted or unavailable. Operators are able to access the information directly from the instrument, so there is no need to locate maintenance logs or pull the data from a SCADA system.
