Turbidity and suspended solids testing: visual test for water clarity
The Turbidity Tube is designed to gauge the level of suspended solids present within heating system water.
It is useful not only to demonstrate the level of clarity and contamination to you and your customer, but also as a comparative tool to monitor that the discharge (dump) water is successfully clearing during the power flushing process.
Additionally the cylinder can be used for accurately measuring volumes of liquid, such as inhibitor. The cylinder holds 250ml and is marked in 2ml graduations.
Note: Although a turbidity test is a useful means of checking the clarity, it is essential to also test the pH of the system water prior to disconnecting the power flushing pump.
This equipment measures only ‘suspended solids’. Accurate comparative ‘total dissolved solids’ (TDS) readings can be taken with an electronic TDS meter.
