What is the Parker Hannifin’s Trihalomethane (THM) Analyzer?
The THM Analyzer is vital for drinking water safety and compliance. It can, in a matter of minutes, display the Trihalomethane concentration in water, thus making sure that the water is suitable and safe for drinking.
Designed with the expertise from Water Industry end users and specialists, the Parker THM Analyzer is a cost effective approach to the monitorization of water disinfection by-products.
Why is it SO Unique?
The THM Analyzer performs a 30 minute analysis, without the need for tedious sample preparation, right at your plant or facility. With an integrated purge and trap gas chromatograph system, it will help to optimise water treatment, evaluate water age and ultimately improve your control over the formation of THMs.
It also comes with a powerful software which provides better understanding and use of THM measurements and data analysis. The status panel operator interface is very intuitive and user-friendly. It displays measurement progress during an analysis cycle and then displays the measured concentration levels for individual and total THM.
Also, Parker’s THM Analyzer is fully portable. Its rugged, light and compact design allows him to be easily moved and carried around (carrying case available).
The on-line version does not require operator interaction. Once set up, regular sample analysis will occur automatically regardless of where the analyzer is installed.
The Parker on-line THM Analyzer features a more robust enclosure to allow installation right at the process or distribution point of interest. Through SCADA interaction (Supervisory control and data acquisition) the operator can remotely, and safely, determine when and how often the analysis is performed.
How does it Work?
The THM analyser is quite simple to use and does not require any expensive and time consuming sample preparation or off-site analysis. Simply collect a sample and connect it to the analyzer sparging system. Push the start button to begin the measurement cycle and you will see the individual and total THM information displayed clearly on the touchscreen and laptop display.
Not only do you get access to the THM concentration information, but you will be able to view other analytical results as well. Such as measured concentration and detailed chromatography data which are automatically archived for future review.
You can also transfer the data to other software packages for more detailed trending analysis of THM information.
The Trihalomethane Analyzer can be used in many places where THM water testing is key, for example, Local Water Plants, Universities, Beverage Plants, Research, amongst others. Most common applications are:
- Regulatory Compliance for Drinking Water - Optimal Water Quality and Water age - Activated resin and filter optimisation (GAC, PAC, etc) - Aeration system and Chemical feed optimisation - Flushing program, distribution system, and storage optimisation
POA means "Price On Application". Items displaying POA instead of the sell price do so for a number of reasons, not least because we anticipate some additional information is required in order to supply the most suitable options/configuration to each individual customer.
