Q46H/79S

ATI Q46H/79S Total Chlorine Stripping Monitor

ATI Q46H/79S Total Chlorine Stripping Monitor

Description

ATI’s Model Q46H/79S uses this same standard iodometric chemistry for measuring total chlorine, but with a unique sensing technique for measuring the released iodine.

Features

  • Measurement is made without contact between water sample and sensor
  • Contact outputs include two programmable control relays for control and alarm modes
  • Communication Options for Profibus-DP, Modbus-RTU, or Ethernet-IP

Details

Residual chlorine is found in many chemical forms in water systems. Residuals in clean water are often predominantly free chlorine while wastewater and cooling water can contain mixtures of free chlorine, combined chlorine, and organochlorine species. Measurement of residual chlorine in applications where only free chlorine (potable water) or only combined chlorine (chloraminated water) exist can often be monitored with direct sensor measurement. However, applications where a variety of chlorine forms can exist (wastewater effluent and some cooling water) require a more complicated measurement method. These applications generally require a “Total Chlorine” measurement and involve chemically converting all chlorine species into a single chemical form.

This is normally done by reacting the sample with pH 4 buffer and potassium iodide to convert various chlorine compounds into iodine. Many on-line monitors for total chlorine use this iodometric method, often measuring the current between two exposed electrodes to determine iodine concentration. ATI’s Model Q46H/79S uses this same standard iodometric chemistry, but with a unique sensing technique for measuring the released iodine. The system takes the reacted sample containing iodine and uses an air-stripping system to remove molecular iodine from solution. The gas-phase iodine from the water sample is channeled through a conditioning module and then directly to an iodine gas sensor. The result is that the iodine measurement is made without any contact between the water sample and the sensor. Contaminants in the sample that cause fouling and contamination of standard electrodes do not affect the Q46 system, providing greater operational reliability.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Nature's Water Quality Detectives Assisting Scientists

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.

Citizen Scientists Helping Protect Water Quality and Measure Impact of Climate Change

Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .

Marine Food Webs At Risk Thanks to Climate Change

Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.
