Particle Counter Sensor PC3

PC3 with HydroACT Series

The PC3 Particle Counter Sensor, when combined with a HydroACT analyzer, represents the most affordable option in Chemtrac’s family of Particle Counters where multiple sample monitoring points are required. For larger installations, 4 to 12 sensors (depending on number of size channels used) can be connected to a single HydroACT 1200 analyzer.


 

 

  • Description

    The PC3 Particle Counter Sensor, when combined with a HydroACT analyzer, represents the most affordable option in Chemtrac’s family of Particle Counters where multiple sample monitoring points are required. For larger installations, 4 to 12 sensors (depending on number of size channels used) can be connected to a single HydroACT 1200 analyzer. The HydroACT platform even allows the user to combine other measurements (like pH and chlorine) with particle counting, which helps reduce overall cost by reducing the number of analyzers. Full integration between the remote sensor and analyzer means all sensor settings, including user-friendly calibration features, can be accessed from the HydroACT’s user interface. The PC3 is an ideal choice for filter effluent and clean liquid monitoring applications where only 1 to 3 size channels of particle measurement are required. A larger flow cell helps make this sensor easier to clean, and also reduces overall installation footprint due to the more compact flow control weir design. For very low levels of suspended solids, particle counting is very often a better alternative to other traditional measurements like turbidity and SDI. Contact Chemtrac to discuss your application and let us find the right solution for you.
