Portable Particle Counter / Sampler

PC5000

The PC5000 Particle Counter/Portable Sampler has the capability to operate as both a grab sample particle counter (lab or field use) and an online particle counter, which makes it ideal for particle size and concentration analysis in a variety of municipal and industrial applications. The PC5000 can size particulates from 2 to 125 microns and count particulates from 2 to 750 microns. With the ability to detect particles at low part per trillion concentrations, the PC5000 offers superior analytical performance at an economical price compared to most other laboratory type particle counters.

  • Another Successful Showcase at ACE 2016 Posted on: 07/30/2016

    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 Posted on: 06/14/2016

    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.

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.

  • WWET Training on Particle Counts and Turbidity Posted on: 09/25/2015

    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 understand their operating parameters, strengths and limitations.  Over the years we have had coagulation problems and filter performance issues that we could not figure out, but the information we received from your class really opened my eyes to some of those issues.”
