  • Drinking Water Treatment

Product information

  • See Changes Fast
    In filter effluent turbidity measurement, slight changes in turbidity can be used to optimize the performance of the filter and potentially the treatment process upstream.  The small volume flow body combined with our optical system helps operators see changes in turbidity quickly allowing them to react to changes in their process efficiently. 
  • Simplified Workflows
    In low level turbidity monitoring, small differences in how key processes are performed can lead to a big difference in results.  In order to help operators, work efficiently and consistently, all PTV Series instruments walk the user through key processes like calibration and verification.  
  • Easy Calibration & Verification
    Lovibond® T-CALplus ® standards are primary standards that meet US EPA and ISO requirements for calibration.  This self-contained system allows operators to follow best practice techniques, without coming into contact with formazin solution.  Standards are available in a variety of concentrations to meet routine calibration and verification requirements.
  • Save Water
    Stop throwing finished water away!  The optimal flow rate of the PTV Series is 40 - 120 ml per minute, while many other competitive instruments require 500 ml per minute or more.  This difference in required flow rates translates to over 1 million gallons of finished water saved over the life of a single instrument, without compromising on the limit of detection or accuracy.
  • Rethink the Controller
    Every PTV Series instrument has an integrated touchscreen display, so there is no need to install a separate controller.  Information relevant to daily controls and processes are always clearly displayed on the screen.  With the optional Bluetooth® feature, operators get access to our AquaLXP app, which is an enhanced version of the touchscreen with tech tips and animated instructions.
