Home Our Equipment Water Quality Monitors ORP
Water can have a positive or negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) and it is measured in volts. ORP is a way to measure water’s ability to accept or release electrons during a chemical reaction. Understanding the ORP value helps determine the quality of the water and thereby helps operators decide what water treatment processes may be required. The more positive the ORP value, the greater the tendency the water has to oxidise (gain electrons from) organisms or other material in the water, thereby killing or destroying them.
ORAKEL ORP sensors measure the redox potential of any aqueous solution. They are platinum-based sensors with integral reference electrodes which use no reagents, are extremely stable and have reduced maintenance and lower whole-life costs.
The ORP electrodes are filled with a polymeric gel. This innovative design makes the electrodes more responsive, with a longer life than ordinary electrodes (up to 3 years).
Anywhere you have a requirement to measure ORP is a suitable application for the ORAKEL System. The ORP sensor range is particularly suited to working in sites where reliability and
ease of use are most important.
Typical water treatment applications:
The ORAKEL ORP sensors can be installed in a variety of auxiliary flow cells and self-cleaning devices.
The ORAKEL can come equipped to automatically clean itself at user defined intervals with all the benefits of no operator intervention for 6 months. The Autoflush is particularly useful in food preparation, pulp and paper, and many applications where there is likely to be a build up of solids in the sample. Autoflush is available for at line, and in line versions including dip and screw in autoclean pipe version.
The ORAKEL range of Conductivity meters also double as a Salinity meter and a TDS meter. The range measures conductivity in water from 0 to 2,000,000 µS/cm (range selectable). You can choose between a standard graphite sensor and a more sophisticated toroidal sensor, or stainless steel ‘special’ sensors for high temperature, high pressure conductivity measurement applications.
The ORAKEL peracetic acid sensor is a membrane device which use no reagents. It is extremely stable and has a reduced maintenance and reduced whole life costs.
With its reduced maintenance, reduced calibration and reduced spares requirements, the ORAKEL peracetic acid sensor is arguably the most cost effective peracetic acid analyser available.
The pH5 electrode has a double-junction reference to prevent contamination of the reference from sample components.
This design gives the electrode a longer life compared to ordinary electrodes (up to 3 yrs). The electrode also has a hemi-shaped glass measuring surface which is more durable than the traditional bulb-shaped glass.
Sitting at the top end of the market place, the ORAKEL pH probe has a longer life and lower maintenance requirements. Typically it only needs calibrating once every two or three months, making it a very cost effective solution.
The ORAKEL range of Residual Chlorine Analysers, Residual Chlorine Controllers and Residual Chlorine Monitors are membrane devices which are insensitive to changing pH, use no reagents, are extremely stable, and have reduced maintenance and reduced whole life costs.
The membraned amperometric chlorine sensors are enhanced with a third, reference electrode which eliminates zero drift. Its unique design means that pH correction is not usually required at all, completely eliminating reagents.
Optical luminescent devices which are extremely resistant to abrasion, extremely stable, and have greatly reduced maintenance and whole life costs.
The ORAKEL Dissolved Oxygen sensor has no chemicals or moving parts. It is stable and reliable making it excellent for process controls and is suitable for all Dissolved Ovygen applications.
The ORAKEL Suspended Solids senor has a large dynamic range, which eliminates the need for a “zero” and also eliminates the effect of background light.
For multiple measuring ranges, the suspended solids sensor can monitor turbidity and suspended solids from 2 NTU (1mg/l) to 8%* solids.
