Ammonium Sensors Deliver Economical Analytical Measurement Solution

Sept. 8, 2009

The new S10 and S17 Ammonium Sensors from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) provide advanced instrumentation to help plants and processes operate smoothly and efficiently with lower operating costs, according to the company.
The ECD S10 and S17 Ammonium Analytical Sensors consist of two universal sensors and replaceable electrode cartridges.  The S10 Sensor is an immersion or an insertion style sensor, and the S17 is a valve retractable style sensor.  They are fully re-buildable and feature a 316 stainless steel body that incorporates the sensing element, a temperature module and a signal conditioner with cabling. 

Ammonium concentration is a commonly measured parameter in environmental water, potable water and waste water. The pIon electrode cartridge measures the activity of “free” Ammonium ions in solution in concentrations from 0.5 to 18,000 ppm over a pH range from 2-10 pH.  The pIon can measure Ammonium ions over a wide temperature range of 0 to 40º C.

Both the S10 and S17 sensors utilize ECD’s replaceable electrode cartridges, which can be selected to measure pH, ORP, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and resistivity.
