The revolutionary SWAN AMI Turbiwell LED online turbidity analyzer boasts unique features not found in other turbidity analyzers.

The non-contact, EPA approved white light LED optical system is virtually maintenance-free. The system requires no calibration, uses no spare parts or consumables, and thus offers many years of low cost, practically maintenance-free turbidity monitoring.

 

Online Turbidity Analyzer Features:

  • No calibration required
  • No optical light source replacement (long-life, maintenance-free LED system)
  • No optics cleaning
  • No spare parts or consumables
  • Excellent stability and correlation with lab results
  • Fast and simple verification procedure with optional verification kit
  • Optional sample flow monitoring
  • Optional sample degasser
  • Industry leading 4-year warranty

 

The SWAN AMI Turbiwell LED, with its versatile range from 0.000 up to 100.0 NTU, is currently being used in Canada for all types of filtered water, potable water, raw water and more. Many small and large municipalities in Canada have been using the AMI Turbiwell online turbidity analyzer for years, saving them valuable time and operating costs.

An online turbidity analyzer with a new approach. Non-contact, LED turbidimeter reduces maintenance efforts significantly and thereby contributes to lowering the cost of ownership.

Raw water monitoring (surface water)

Most of the measurement points are at some distance in the countryside. Due to long travel times to the site, an instrument with aslittle maintenance as possible is required/called for. The sample contains harmful substances,pathogenic contaminants and particles of different sizes as mud or sand. Optical windows in direct contact with the sample would be covered with a biofilm or other sample-related precipitations which inevitably lead to turbidimeter performance failure and finally wrong measurement values. The non-contact optics is the perfect solution to ensure measurement reliability and stability. A programmable, automatic chamber drain clears the measurement chamber from settled particles.

Water treatment

process Reliability of the instrument – especially that of the instrument’s light source and verified measurement values is the main feature in monitoring of the clarification / filter processes. Providing safe drinking water is the main objective and a deviation in turbidity will lead to different procedures. But how to distinguish if this deviation is caused by a thin biofilm on the optical windows, a decreased lamp intensity or a real incident with the filters?The answer is to exclude the possibility of deviation in the instrument itself. Biofilm is not an issue for a non-contact set-up; lamp intensity monitoring and a dark current measurement provide the most accurate and verified measurement value possible.

Conclusion:

The new non-contact turbidimeter, the AMI Turbiwell with automatic or manual chamber drain and lamp intensity monitoring offers a variety of benefits in terms of reducing maintenance work and cost of ownership,and with the enhancement of reliability and stability. Therefore, not only the initial costs of a turbidimeter have to be considered. The economical factor of a low-maintenance but sophisticated instrument must also betaken into account.

Non-contact turbidimeter: System optics are not in direct contact with sample, no fouling on optical surfaces.

The entire monitor is designed for low maintenance. The sample chamber includes an easy drain valve. Turn the valve, drain the system including any fouling build up. A quick rinse and brush is all that is required. An auto drain feature is also available where the system will automatically open the valve at a set period. Very useful for remote installations. System optics are not in direct contact with sample, no fouling on optical surfaces occurs from the sample.
