Lovibond Photometers for Industrial Water Analysis
Dedicated Lovibond® Photometers for Boiler Water and Cooling Water An established supplier of water testing equipment to Industrial Water applications, the Lovibond® team has now introduced two dedicated photometers for the analysis of Boiler Water and Cooling Water respectively. With one photometer to carry out all the tests associated with these industries, plant managers no longer need to use multiple kits with up to 13 different pieces of equipment when one is now available.
Each photometer has a dedicated range of application-specific tests. With the same degree of accuracy and repeatability, they are ideal for the operator who requires a multi-parameter instrument, without the need to invest in a high-end, all-encompassing product. Combining additional tests for pH, conductivity and other titration tests such as alkalinity, hardness and sulphite, the user can request a complete analysis set, ideal for cooling system or boiler plant management.
The photometers are supplied pre-calibrated with test methods, simply add the appropriate Lovibond® reagent sets (tablets, powder packs and liquids). Manufactured under tightly controlled conditions, sealed reagents have a shelf-life of up to 10 years since, until used, they are not exposed to the elements.
A step by step instruction manual enables even photometer novices to quickly understand the procedures to ensure rapid and accurate results every time. Easy-to-use with push-button technology, photometry is widely regarded as the simplest yet most accurate method to analyze water, removing any possible subjectivity when reading results that can occur with visual testing equipment.
Both photometers are further equipped with functionality expected of the Lovibond® brand such as scroll memory, backlit display, recall of stored data and the ability to download, and share, results. Supplied in a case with accessories, these photometers provide an efficient, portable and self-contained option for Boiler Water and Cooling Water testing.
