ATI's Model Q46C2 Conductivity Monitor provides the reliable and accurate low-level measurements required for high purity water systems.
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.

For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like.
“Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.Read More
Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.Read More
Since the 1980s, scientists from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) have been sampling water from acid-impaired ponds and lakes and tracking data related to acidity. The line of inquiry began in response to concerns about acid rain, but DEC scientists now find that the long-term monitoring is not only proving the efficacy of the Clean Air Act but also improving local water quality.

Rebecca Harvey is a VT DEC scientist, and monitoring the state's waterways for acidity and other problems falls in part to her. Dr. Harvey corresponded with EM about this work.Read More
