New Sievers analyser simplifies drinking water monitoring and process optimisation
6 November 2008, News release from GE Analytical Instruments
GE Analytical Instruments, a division of GE Water & Process Technologies, announces its new Sievers 5310 C On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyser.
Designed specifically for the municipal drinking water market, the 5310 C On-Line enables continuous monitoring of raw and finished water TOC for plant optimization, USEPA compliance reporting, and distribution security monitoring applications.
The 5310 C On-Line Analyser recovers the most difficult-to-oxidize organic compounds by combining UV/persulfate oxidation with the proven Sievers Membrane Conductometric Detection Technology, a USEPA-approved methodology under Standard Methods 5310 C and USEPA Method 415.3. The Analyser offers superior accuracy and precision across a dynamic operating range of 4 parts per billion (ppb) to 50 parts per million (ppm) TOC.
The 5310 C On-Line Analyser was engineered for ease of use and cost-effective operation. It simplifies monitoring and enhances productivity with automated procedures such as calibration, verification, and reagent adjustment. The 5310 C can report TOC values for two streams using an optional multi-stream device, and allows users to automatically calculate a TOC Percent Removal based upon a preselected lag time between each stream.
In addition to running in continuous analysis mode, the Sievers 5310 C On-Line can accept discrete grab samples and standards at any time through the patented Sievers Integrated On-Line Sampling System (iOS System*). The new grab mode alphanumeric labeling feature allows users to individually label each grab sample for easy recall of specific samples in the data history or when viewing data on the Analyser's screen.
"The Sievers 5310 C On-Line is an extension of our popular 5310 C Laboratory model," said Steve Poirier, GE Analytical Instruments V.P. of Marketing and Business Development. "The new on-line model offers all the ease of use, low maintenance, analytical performance and automation that our municipal customers expect from Sievers TOC Analysers."
The 5310 C On-Line Analyser is easy to set up, operate, and maintain. It requires no external reagents or gas supplies, and offers a low cost of ownership. Calibration is typically stable for 12 months.
