  • What is turbidity?

    Turbidity measures the relative clarity of a water sample. It is determined by the amount of scattering that occurs when a light source is shined through a water sample. Light scattering is caused by increased concentrations of suspended particles in water that are not individually visible to the naked eye, which can give the water a cloudy appearance. This parameter is used as a general ...

  • Sample System Best Practices for Water and Hydrocarbon DP Applications

    Abstract Sampling techniques for BTU and moisture measurements are well understood but applications beyond the routine requires additional attention to detail. Two such applications are the subject of this paper. The first is the measurement of low level moisture (1 – 1,000 ppbv) for cryogenic processes. Measuring moisture below 1 ppm is an entirely different world from the traditional ...
