Overview

The ATU1-D Turbidity Meter is a direct reading portable instrument which comprises a Sensor Unit with 30 m cable (standard length) and a compact rugged Display Unit housed in an FRP case.The Turbidity Meter uses an infrared back-scattering detection technique. Supensoids are detected in the area where the pulsed beams from two transmitter elements intersect. The diffused light at this junction is sensed by a receiving element located between the two transmitters. The receiver beam has an acceptance angle of 165 ¢Xand , being located towards the rear of the unit, enables turbidity measurements to be made over a wide range without alteration of the optical axis span. Accurate turbidity data are digitally displayed on an LCD panel with analogue output signals available for continuous recording.
