Ultraviolet Transmission (UVT) is a relative measurement comparing how much light passes through a water sample vs a pure water sample at 254nm expressed at a 1cm path length. This measurement is used for UV control to allow energy savings by adjusting the output to match water quality and flow in real-time. This avoids over dosage and reduces overall operating cost without compromising disinfection performance.
For long-term, in-situ continuous monitoring of ultraviolet transmission, a self-cleaning UVT sensor is usually necessary to avoid fouling of the sensor and maintain accuracy. Xylem | WTW products use ultrasonic cleaning to extend deployments and include many advanced features such as real-time turbidity compensation to provide the best quality real-time measurement in difficult applications.
Controller for small and mid-sized wastewater treatment plants including USB-interface and internal data logger – up to 4 sensors, all parameters, available anytime.
With an easily scalable solution, the 2020 3G allows for the connection of up to 20 sensors. This modular plug-and-play system allows you to monitor the water quality in your wastewater system continuously and accurately.
The SAC sensor measures Spectral Absorption Coefficient (SAC) and UV transmission (UVT) at 254nm for determination of organic loads in water. With the sensor UV 700 IQ SAC this parameter can be detected directly without any chemicals. A reference measurement is performed for compensation of turbidity influences.
