Home Our Equipment Water Quality Monitors Suspended Solids
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.
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.
The sensor uses lifetime optical technology to provide a stable, reliable low-maintenance sensor with no moving parts and no consumables. It determines the suspended solids concentration, or turbidity in the water using a measurement of the back scattered light.
Each sensor is fitted with an infra-red LED emitter light source and two matched photodiodes detectors for making the measurements. It has two detectors, positioned at different distances from the light source. This allows the sensor to be used over a wide range of suspended solids concentrations.
The detectors are positioned to detect back scattered light (light that is scattered by
The sensor can be mounted on the end of a pole for dip mounting in the channel or tank, or inserted into a pipe via a valve which allows for retraction and removal of the sensor without shutting down the process.
The sensor is fitted with a cleaning nozzle to keep it clean. This can be used to clean the optical windows with a jet of water. The procedure can be programmed to be automated at predefined intervals.
Calibration for turbidity measurements or measurements of samples with low concentrations of solids is very easy only requiring a single calibration sample. This sample can either be a reading from another method or a suitable standard.
The ORAKEL control unit calibrates the sensor by reducing the light output through four stages, taking measurements at each. This process provides an accurate and reliable zero and span without the requirement to use a ‘0’ NTU/solids sample.
Calibration of the sensor for measurement of samples with high concentration of solids uses a multipoint procedure. Up to 5 calibration points can be used to give accurate performance across a wide range of sample concentrations.

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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
