Protoc 300 TOC analyser for surface water quality measurement & control
The Protoc 300 TOC analyser has been extensively installed for continuous water quality measurement off surface water draining from hard standing and discharge to local water courses.
The Protoc 300 TOC analyser has an established track record for continuous water quality measurement within the industrial sector including operations regulated by the Environmental Permitting Regulations.
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is an important parameter which can also provide a good indication in real time of the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) often used to regulate discharge. The TOC measurement has also been correlated to Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) which is used to regulate discharges to river.
Installation include Manchester International Airport to measure water quality and identify the pressence of Glycol used for de-icing Aircraft and runways.
The Protoc instrument uses a recognised UV- persulphate technique to continuously report the organic carbon within the sample. The design can be used for truly continuous measurement and self- validates measurements against an automatic calibration routine.
Automatic wash sequences using acids or alkalis can also be integrated for challenging applications to remove bio-fouling and chemical precipitates. PPM has also designed a number of sample preparation systems suitable for a wide range of sample types. Our capabilities also extend to providing a bespoke engineering service including pre-installation within walkin analyser kiosks and secondary enclosures, complete with frost protection, lighting, electrical and sample distribution.
