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.

Since 2003 harmful bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) levels have created a health risk to recreational users in Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek has been designated as an impaired stream and is not meeting an EPA health-based water quality standard.
Concentrations of E. coli increase from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to the University of Colorado-Boulder and beyond based upon data collected by the City of Boulder according to information published by the CU Independent and the Boulder Camera . EM spoke to environmental engineer Art Hirsch of the Boulder Waterkeeper , who is advocating for greater accountability from all entities that own property abutting the stream.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Māno a , in collaboration with other partners, recently deployed a new ocean acidification (OA) monitoring site in Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary , American Samoa. Derek Manzello , a coral ecologist with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Florida, is the lead PI of ACCRETE: the Acidification, Climate and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team at AOML. Dr. Manzello connected with EM about the deployment.
“ACCRETE encompasses multiple projects that all aim to better understand the response of coral reef ecosystems to climate change and/or ocean acidification,” explains Dr.Read More
Around the world, extreme wave heights and ocean winds are increasing. The greatest increase is happening in the Southern Ocean, according to recent research from the University of Melbourne , and Dr. Ian Young corresponded with EM about what inspired the work.
“Our main interest is ocean waves, and we are interested in wind because it generates waves,” explains Dr. Young. “Ocean waves are important for the design of coastal and offshore structures, the erosion of beaches and coastal flooding, and the safety of shipping.”
Waves also have a role in determining how much heat, energy and gas can be trapped in the ocean.
“The major reason why changes in wave height may be important is because of sea level rise,” details Dr. Young.Read More
