The ATI Model Q46/84 Hydrogen Peroxide Monitor is designed to continuously monitor processes that utilize hydrogen peroxide for bleaching or disinfection purposes.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an extremely strong oxidizer widely used in bleaching applications in the paper industry. It has also been used in a variety of applications including disinfection, odor control, oxygenation, and cyanide oxidation. It is frequently used in wastewater collection systems to remove hydrogen sulfide that destroys concrete pipes and manhole structures. Peroxide applications in aqueous systems, like most chemical treatment processes, function most efficiently with accurate measurement and control.
ATI’s Model Q46/84 Hydrogen Peroxide Monitor is designed to continuously measure the concentration of H2O2 in aqueous systems. Using a direct peroxide sensor, the unit responds rapidly to changes in concentration, enabling operators to control chemical feed to maintain specific targets. With both digital and analog communications available, the Q46 is adaptable to a wide variety of peroxide monitoring applications.
Hydrogen Peroxide sensors are amperometric devices isolated from the water by a peroxide permeable membrane. As peroxide diffuses through this membrane, it comes in contact with an active electrode and is oxidized on the surface. The net effect is that the sensor generates a current proportional to H2O2 concentration. An integral RTD in the sensor provides for automatic temperature compensation, allowing the sensor to operate accurately over a range of 0-50°C.
Peroxide sensors are capable of operating over a fairly broad concentration range, from a low range of 0-2 PPM up to a high range of 0-200 PPM. Systems will operate with good sensitivity down to 0.05 PPM and respond to changes in concentration within about 60 seconds, making them useful for automatic control.
Hydrogen Peroxide sensors require a steady flow of sample across the membrane at the tip of the sensing assembly. ATI offers options for flowcells, including the standard constant-head overflow system, and a sealed flowcell for pressures up to 50 PSI. For simplicity of installation, complete flow control assemblies are available. Panel assemblies are available with or without a flow switch and can greatly reduce installation time.

Mike Shelton, natural resources planner for Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), has spent 17 years at the Reserve. The Reserve was founded in 1986 and is located in the Alabama and Florida coastal region. “It’s a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Places like this are why we live on the coast,” he enthuses. “There’s also a lot of history here. It’s one of the first areas settled by the Europeans after they arrived in America. The city of Pensacola was the second city built in the U.S.,” adds Scott Phipps, research coordinator for Weeks Bay NERR. Weeks Bay NERR monitoring follows the same System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) as the other 28 NERRs, which includes deploying data-gathering sondes throughout the Bay.Read More
Part of the secret to knowing just how much Earth's oceans have warmed as its climate has changed in the past—and might change in the future—might be locked in the ice of Antarctica. A research team has discovered a way to use noble gas ratios to calculate the average temperature of the oceans of our past. Geoscientist and study author Dr. Jeff Severinghaus and teammates from Scripps Oceanography and other institutions in Japan and Switzerland worked together on the tricky problem of measuring ocean temperatures of the past. Until now, the distribution of different water masses around the globe has made determining changes in the average temperature of the world's oceans nearly impossible.Read More
A pair of lonesome data buoys bobbing off Michigan’s storm-whipped Lake Superior shore were suddenly the stars of the state this fall when they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes. The buoys, near Granite Island and Munising, each recorded 28.8-foot significant wave heights during a storm that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage along the coast. The record wave height exceeded the previous 27.6-foot record set by a Michigan Tech buoy near Houghton, Mich., in 2012. To give some perspective on the rarity of these types of events, waves at the record-capturing buoys only climbed above 12 feet four times throughout 2015 and 2016.Read More
