Video Testimonial: WTP Prefers “Reagentless” Chlorine Analyzers

When the water treatment plant in Auburn, AL was looking for the ability to monitor chlorine in off-site locations, they did not want to have to deal with on-line analyzers that required reagents. Instead they turned to Chemtrac’s HydroACT Chlorine Analyzers which utilize amperometric probe sensors with membrane caps. By choosing the probe approach, the maintenance requirements, and subsequent maintenance costs, were reduced tremendously. And the plant also came to realize that not all chlorine probe analyzers are the same....

New Free Chlorine Probe Design

Chemtrac is now delivering their free chlorine analyzers with a new and improved sensor. With the previous design, it was recommended to replace the membrane cap annually, and the electrolyte was typically replaced two to four times per year. For the new probes, the membrane caps are expected to last for two years, and the electrolyte can last for a year before it needs to be changed. It must be noted that the membrane caps differ and are unique for the respective probe designs, and are not interchangeable. When ordering replacement caps, please be sure to first determine which probe design you have. Then determine the proper part number for the appropriate cap. The look of the electrodes can be compared in the following photos. The former Free Chlorine probe design incorporated a small...

Technical Training for Sales Reps Benefits Customers

We understand that our Chemtrac product sales are in a large part from the efforts of independent distributors and manufacturers representatives. These sales reps are often times the initial connection for us with the end user. So it is imperative that they develop the necessary expertise to effectively and accurately communicate the technology, features, and benefits, associated with the solutions we offer. The reps are a critical part of the Chemtrac team, and the more knowledge they have about our analyzers and applications, the better they will be able to serve our customers....

Chemtrac to Exhibit at IWC in San Antonio

The 77th Annual International Water Conference will be held November 6-9 in San Antonio, TX.  The IWC remains the premier source of technical information and training in the industrial water and wastewater business, spanning numerous industrial sectors, and addressing today’s most relevant technical topics.  Chemtrac will once again be hosting a booth in the IWC Exhibit Hall....

South Carolina WTP Overcame Flood-Related Challenges

It is not uncommon for water treatment plants to have to adjust coagulant doses when raw water conditions rapidly change due to passing storms. However, recent hurricanes and tropical storms remind us that when record-setting rainfalls cause epic flooding, water treatment plants can be faced with unprecedented challenges....

New Chlorine Analyzer Video Demonstration

We at Chemtrac want our customers to better understand our products. We feel the next best thing to having an on-site demonstration of our analyzers is to be able to see a video demonstration…and become more aware of the product capabilities, and see the ease of set-up and operation....

Another Successful Showcase at ACE 2016

The Chemtrac team joined attendees at ACE 2016 in Chicago, IL to discuss the latest models of Streaming Current Monitors, Particle Counters, Chlorine Analyzers, and HydroACT multi-parameter analyzer.   The Laboratory Charge Analyzer, a bench-top streaming current unit, was the featured product. As mentioned previously, the LCA builds on the success and solid performance of its predecessor models (CCA3100, ECA2100 and ECAT2100), allowing for charge neutralization titrations to accurately determine target coagulant dosages for surface water treatment. Essentially, the LCA provides a way for conducting jar tests in less than five minutes, as opposed to the traditional methods that can take in excess of an hour to run....

Introducing Next Generation Products at ACE16

We will be introducing our two new series of products at the 2016 AWWA Annual Conference & Exposition in Chicago next week (June 19-22). Both the Laboratory Charge Analyzers, and the third-generation HydroACT multi-parameter analyzers, will be revealed and on display at our Chemtrac Booth (#1040) in the ACE Exhibit Hall....

Happy Birthday Chemtrac, Inc. — Thirty One-derful Years!

We are happy to say that this month marks the 31st anniversary of Chemtrac, Inc. Founded in 1985 upon the release of a new Streaming Current Monitor, Chemtrac has come a long way and is now recognized as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of Streaming Current Monitors and Particle Counters, as well as the provider of the HydroACT series of multi-parameter analyzers....

New HydroACT Analyzer and Controller

In the coming months, keep an eye out for the new and improved Chemtrac HydroACT multi-parameter analyzer. It will offer an innovative design, a high-resolution display, a user-friendly interface, and data storage and trend-graphing capabilities. The standard model will provide for two sensor inputs, with the ability to expand to eight sensors, for monitoring: streaming current, particle counts, chlorine, UV254 organics, pH, ORP, ozone, DO, conductivity, and more....

WWET Training on Particle Counts and Turbidity

Chemtrac recently conducted a four-hour training class for Water Wastewater Education & Training (WWET), in Henderson, NV.  There were over 50 attendees from the local area. The group was mostly composed of operators from the City of Henderson, Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD), Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), and Southern Nevada Water Services (SNWS).The training was well received by those in attendance.  The WWET training coordinator, Brett Goodnow, had the following to say, “Chemtrac’s training was probably the best I have seen on those subjects. If found it very interesting that turbidity and particle counts do not always correlate. It was my impression that they would always complement each other. We had particle counters for years and now realize we did not fully un...

Removing Iron and Manganese in less than 10 minutes

Routine cleaning is essential for a streaming current monitor to work properly.   Therefore, plant operators desire a unit that is easy to clean, uses a good cleaning agent, and has a quick recovery of the streaming current reading after the cleaning is complete.   A 1:1 solution of hydrogen peroxide (approx. 5%) and acetic acid (common household vinegar) offers plant operators a simple and safe alternative to harsh cleaners.   A simple spray bottle and brush are all that is needed for a cleaning that takes less than 10 minutes to dissolve iron, manganese, and permanganate stains from the flow cell. Cleaning Steps: Remove probe, piston and flow cell from the SCM. Spray these pieces with 1:1 solution and allow the solution to set for a couple minutes. Brush the probe and piston before reass...
