The Turbidity Monitoring System comprises a turbidimeter and a converter.
Dissolved oxygen, conductivity, pH and turbidity were measured in situ by using a WTW multimeter (Oxi 340) connected to appropriate electrodes and a turbidimeter (Hach Lange, TSS portable).
In this article we make use of our in-line turbidimeter to estimate in real time the breakup and deformation of the droplets of the dispersed (second) phase as a function of the reprocessing and die-head pressure using well-behaved polymer mixtures.
Turbidity and pH of the supernatants were measured immediately using a 2100N turbidimeter (HACH, Loveland, CO) and an AR20 pH/ conductivity meter (Fisher Scientific), respectively.
We used a Multiparameter Meter (Hanna Instruments, Schertz, Texas, USA) to measure pH and specific conductance and used an Aquafluor Handheld Fluorometer and Turbidimeter (Turner Designs, Sunnyvale, California, USA) to measure chlorophyll-a concentration and turbidity.
Turbidity was measured using the nephelometric method with a 2100P HACH portable turbidimeter.
Subsamples were drawn from the integrated water samples and analyzed by a Turner Designs Aquafluor(TM) Handheld Fluorometer and Turbidimeter.
Redox potential and pH were analysed using a combination platinum/reference (Ag/Agcl) electrode (ATI Russel,) pH/Eh meter, turbidity was determined using Hach turbidimeter 2100P, TDS and conductivity with conductivity/TDS meter (Hach CO.
The process elements are the following: the Catching, Filtering and Treating Station 1(CFTS 1), the Dreans 1 together with the Catching, Filtering and Treating Station 2(CFTS2), the turbidimeter TBM, the valves: VTJ, VTT, VT3, VT33, VT1, VT11, VT0, VT5, VT2, VT22, VT4, VT44, the flow sensors: TD0, TD1, TD2, TD3, TD4, the 500 [m.
