Turbidity Measurement
Applications of continuous turbidity measurement in drinking water processing
The monitoring of the indicator parameter turbidity with a limit value of 1 NTU / FNU is one of the legal obligations of the operator of a waterworks and is considered to be complied with if this value is maintained at the waterworks exit. In-house laboratories usually take on these tasks and report the results to the responsible supervisory authority according to a defined sampling plan.
The Science Behind Your Turbidity Measurements
On the surface, turbidity analysis is a simple measurement. But there are all sorts of factors that can have an effect on the accuracy of readings or the dependability of an instrument.  At Lovibond®, we obsess about turbidity measurement so you don't have to. Our team of globally recognized turbidity experts work to anticipate and solve operators' struggles with turbidity measurement. 
Turbidity Measurement
In pool water, turbidity is an indication for the effectiveness of the filter system and cleaning agents. In drinking water it indicates the possible bacterial growth. In sewage treatment plants the turbidity is an indicator of quality in the cleaning procedures. In industries, turbidity is a quality criterion for products. The cause of turbidity is usually tiny small particles or droplets that do not dissolve in the surrounding liquids.
