Low-level conductivity measurements are essential for monitoring a variety of high purity water systems. The proper operation of deionizers, reverse osmosis membranes, ion exchange systems, and heat exchangers require constant monitoring to ensure high quality production.
ATI’s Model Q46C2 Conductivity Monitor provides the reliable and accurate low-level measurements required for such high purity water systems. Monitors provide large, easy-to-read LCD displays with a second display line for indication of temperature or other operational information. And for those applications where results in resistivity units are preferred, Q46C2 monitors can be programmed to display readings in Meg-ohm units instead of microSiemens.
Q46C2 monitors can also be configured to measure and display the concentration of chemicals used in various process applications. The user defined concentration table requires data on both concentration vs. conductivity and temperature vs. conductivity for the chemical of interest. The user can enter six data points each for concentration and conductivity within the specified measuring range. Temperature compensation can either be made by custom compensation table or a single linear compensation factor.
For applications where there are several chemicals dissolved in solution, the Q46C2 monitor can be configured to measure and display the concentration of total dissolved solids (TDS). The user simply enters the TDS factor that best converts the process conductivity into concentration units. Temperature compensation can either be made by custom compensation table or a single linear compensation factor.

A few years after Ohio became a state in 1803, George Harner arrived in Greene County with a land deed signed by then-President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. The homestead was largely old forest and wetlands and also included a fen-fed stream—the Beaver Creek.
As was the case with much of the Ohio Territory, the forests eventually gave way to land clearing and grain farming. Harner’s descendants, including his son John and John’s wife, Sarah Koogler, continued to work the rich soil for many years to follow.
Much of the original property and surrounding land has fallen prey to urban sprawl.Read More
Each fall in Puget Sound, coho salmon leave the salt water and swim up freshwater streams. They head upstream to spawn: lay their eggs and die.
Death is always the end of this journey for coho salmon, but in streams now running through urban areas, stormwater runoff kills them before they can spawn.
This phenomenon, called Urban Runoff Mortality Syndrome, can kill up to 70-90% of coho salmon in an affected area.
“‘Woah’ is a pretty common response,” said Kathy Peter, a research scientist formerly at University of Washington Tacoma and the Center for Urban Waters.
This phenomenon adds pressure to the Puget Sound population, already considered a species of concern by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act.Read More
Water quality issues are shifting in the United States’ rivers in big ways.
Those changes are driven, in part, by the way the land in a watershed is used and they’re big enough that researchers may need to change the way they think about water quality in the American rivers.
“What was striking to us was how perceptions of water quality issues from several decades ago may need to be updated,” said Edward Stets, a U S Geological Survey research ecologist, in an email response to questions from Environmental Monitor.
New research by Stets published in Environmental Science &; Technology in March highlights these shifting water quality issues.Read More
