Turbidity measurement

The water comes cloudy from the tap into the glass, turns greenish cloudy in the pool, and the garden pond looks muddy-brown. This is the cloudiness that is visible to the naked eye in everyday life. Behind it are particles that do not dissolve in water. They scatter the light or partially absorb it. This makes the water look cloudy. But there are also turbidities that are hardly visible. They can pose a health hazard in drinking water, cause corrosion and material damage in industrial plants and indicate unwanted contamination in waste water treatment. Therefore, the turbidity measurement is one of the most important parameters in many applications and must be checked regularly. Our experts explain why.

We have the experts: The turbidity know-how at Lovibond®

For almost 140 years, Lovibond® has stood for pioneering developments in the production of devices for water analysis. Turbidity measurement has long been an area. In our own research and development, a team of internationally recognized experts has long been working on solving urgent problems in turbidity measurement with new technologies and pioneering devices.

This includes the PTV series with online process turbidity measuring devices, which, with many technical solutions, means a new generation, especially in drinking water control. Until then, bubble-free measurements were pure wishful thinking for many users, as was app-controlled monitoring and the problem-free networking of several devices. Read here what exactly the PTV series has to offer.

With our new T-CAL® turbidity standards, we offer the full range of ready-to-use standards and formazine solutions that can also be used with instruments from all other manufacturers.

As the latest development, the new TB 350 turbidity meter with its new, patented measurement technology provides a unique range of measurement ranges: both samples with low and high turbidity can be checked here in a particularly user-friendly manner - whether in the laboratory or on site.
