Turbidity meter

This equipment works by measuring the amount of scattered light that results from a beam of high intensity light passing through a water sample. When a beam of light passes through a water sample, light is dispersed by the various components in the water, which include organic matter, suspended solids, and minerals. The higher the level of light dispersion, the less clear the water becomes. Measuring the amount of scattered light is known as turbidity, and a turbidimeter is used to detect this level of turbidity.

To accurately measure the turbidity of a water sample, a turbidimeter is usually equipped with a lens assembly or capsule. This is necessary to focus the light beam on the water sample. These lenses also help prevent this light from being diverted, as light rays would have difficulty passing through the sample if they were not properly focused.

Turbidity Meter Operating

Turbidity is a measure of the degree to which water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particles, the greater the amount of suspended solids the greater the degree of turbidity. The equipment associated with this measurement is called a turbidimeter, which is the instrument commonly used to measure particles suspended in a liquid, or in a dissolved gas. Turbidity is measured by detecting and quantifying the light dispersion in a solution, and quantified in nephelometric turbidity units. The turbidimeter shows the values measured in NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Unit). These meters direct a beam of light to the side of a test specimen, measure the amount of light that is reflected at a restricted range of angles generated by any suspended particle, and compare it to light dispersed by standard reference suspensions such as formazine.
