The MS3500 is the first specialist Ammonia in Raw Waste Water monitor and analyser. Its rugged construction and design allows it to reliably measure Ammonia at the very front end of a waste water treatment plant, giving the operator a level of control and knowledge presently unknown to the industry.
Differing from other systems, the MS3500 can be deployed directly at the inlet of a WwTW without the need for extensive and expensive maintenance regimes, complicated filtration systems and unreliable auto-clean devices. Moreover its contactless design provides reliable measurements in even the harshest environments and an improved sensor life.
Principle of Operation
The MS3500 utilises a contactless measurement technique based on Henry’s Law, sensing headspace gases or volatiles in the sampling tank provided, and provides a measurement system with very low maintenance requirements. Thanks to the clever design and technology the sensor never touches with the water. This allows reduced drift, virtually no fouling and very low maintenance.
The MS3500 is accurate to low ppm concentrations and its wide dynamic range allows it to be used in a wide variety of environments.
Using minimal reagents and consumables the running costs of the system are very low.
The MS3500 is accurate from 1 to 200 ppm and its wide dynamic range allows it to be used in a wide variety of environments.
