Our Equipment Water Quality Monitors Particle Counters
Particle counters are known for their ability to detect when a filter is reaching the end of its life. ORAKEL Particle Counters are sophisticated instruments suitable for municipal and industrial water treatment applications including filter performance monitoring, protecting RO membranes from colloidal fouling and corrosion product monitoring.
How it works
The ORAKEL Particle Counter works by counting particles. Particles larger than 127µm are sized as >127µm particles, but up to 6 size ranges can be programmed and counted for particles ranging from 2 to 127µm in diameter. The number of particles counted in each of these ranges is reported as counts per milliliter, counts per 100 milliliters, or raw counts.
As particles in a water stream flow through a cell they break a laser beam. This break is measured by a detector opposite the laser beam and the number of breaks is equal to the number of particles. The size of the signal (created as the particle passes through the beam) is proportional to the size of the particle.
The ORAKEL particle counters connects to an ORAKEL control unit which can connect up to 16 sensors to one unit, enabling users to combine other measurements such as turbidity, chlorine and pH. Typical applications include:

The ORAKEL Turbidity monitor automatically varies the light output so that the turbidity can be measured independently of background light and electronic drift. It is ISO 7027 compliant and covers a range of 0.01-1000 NTU (0.01-2000mg/l depending on the sample).
The ORAKEL System determines true turbidity and/or suspended solids in water, using a nephelometric measurement of scattered light in accordance with ISO 7027. The sensor uses lifetime-based optical technology to provide an extremely stable, accurate, low maintenance sensor with no moving parts and no consumables.
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 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.
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 COD/TOC Sensor uses UV254 light as a surrogate measurement for detecting organics in water.
It is designed in modular form so that it can be integrated with other sensors, such as pH, turbidity and dissolved oxygen, to provide all the tools needed for either a stand-alone UV254 analyser or as part of an effluent discharge monitoring system.
The ORAKEL COD/TOC Sensor provides online continuous organics monitoring utilising a 254nm ultraviolet light source.
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.
