New Sensaphone Sensors Help Ensure Water Quality

ASTON, Pa., June 1, 2016 – Sensaphone® introduces three new sensors that monitor water quality at treatment and wastewater facilities. These sensors measure oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), pH and toroidal conductivity, so that facility operators can be alerted when conditions fall outside the desired range.

The sensors are compatible with most Sensaphone remote monitoring systems, which provide the necessary alerting and data logging functionality. Instant notification ensures prompt corrective action to keep water safe and equipment working properly. They are ideal for applications ranging from pure water in cooling systems to harsh chemical environments like wastewater
treatment plants.

“Maintaining water quality is a scientific balancing act. Our water sensors provide reliable measurements and continue to operate in conditions that often cause conventional probes to fail,” said Rob Fusco, technical support and service manager at Sensaphone.

ORP Sensor   

ORP (Oxidation-Reduction Potential) sensors measure water cleanliness by detecting contaminants. At a higher ORP level, water can more easily destroy foreign contaminants such as microbes and carbon-based contaminants. A lower ORP level means there is a greater level of water contaminants, which are consuming the oxygen. The Sensaphone ORP sensor is an integral two-wire 4-20 mA ORP transmitter that feeds data directly to a Sensaphone device. The sensor includes a measuring range of 0 to 1000 mV or -500 to 500 mV, replaceable salt bridge for extended service life, flow-thru, hot-tap or submersible mounting, and automatic temperature compensation.

pH Sensor

Changes in pH can reduce water quality and damage equipment. The Sensaphone pH sensor is an integral two-wire 4-20 mA pH transmitter that feeds data directly to a Sensaphone device. The sensor includes a measuring range of 0 to 14 pH, replaceable salt bridge for extended service life, flow-thru, hot-tap or submersible mounting, and automatic temperature compensation.

Toroidal Conductivity Sensor

The Sensaphone Toroidal Conductivity Sensor measures water purity based on ion counts. It monitors chemically aggressive process solutions in applications where conventional contacting sensors may become fouled or corroded. It is loop-powered and provides direct 4-20 mA output. Each sensor comes standard with a Pt100 RTD temperature device, which provides automatic temperature compensation to 25 °C (77 °F).

In addition to water treatment and wastewater applications, these sensors are used in environments where ensuring water quality is critical, such as laboratories, healthcare facilities, food and beverage production, aquaculture farms and HVAC systems.
