Trying to use a membrane covered chlorine sensor in "dirty" water is like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Water with elevated levels of iron, calcium or suspended solids clog the membrane's micro pores and prevent the sensor from operating without continuous cleaning by plant personnel.
No matter how badly you'd like to eliminate buffers, moving parts or reagents, some water sources just won't allow you to do so. It's a matter of choosing the right tool for the job.
The Foxcroft model FX-CLv2 amperometric chlorine residual analyzer uses bare electrodes and ordinary distilled white vinegar as a pH buffer and system cleaning agent to measure free or total chlorine.To measure total chlorine simply add potassium iodide to the buffer solution.
With no membrane to clog and auto pH buffering, you get trouble free performance in most water sources up to 10pH. It excels in wastewater and well water that fouls the membranes of typical chlorine sensors.
The design is proven reliable for over 35 years for online monitoring and control in drinking water, food and industrial process water and wastewater throughout the world.
Optional Panel Mounting With Carbon Filter
Simplify your installation with a panel mounted chlorine analyzer, just connect your water supply and the drain hoses. Includes sample inlet valve, a carbon filter for accurate zero point calibration, selector valve to switch between your chlorinated and dechlorinated process water, flow meter to eliminate flow rate guesswork, grab sample tap and pre-mounted buffer bottle bracket. The chlorine analyzer and accessories are mounted on a 1/2" thick 12" high x 36" long PVC panel.
Intuitive interface simplifies operation.
Simple and low maintenance: only 1 hour every 12 to 18 months in clean water applications
No technician required to set up, configure or calibrate
No toxic or costly reagents are required for operation
- 4.3" full color glass touch screen reacts like your smart phone and is rated for a minimum 1 million touches on any one point.
Cool running 24 VDC brushless mixing/cleaning motor and PVC balls continuously clean the electrodes.
Fine tune the pH buffer feed for high pH water samples with variable speed 24VDC buffer feed motor.
Quick Clamp peristaltic pump head simplifies tubing changes and maintenance.
Optical No Flow switch turns off the motors to prevent electrode overheating damage and buffer waste.
Auto mA output scaling.
Calibration hold maintains last residual mA output during calibration to avoid control disruption.
