Horiba Scientific has introduced an automatic sipper accessory and a four-sample changer unit for the Aqualog® A-TEEM spectrometer. The new sipper accessory handles sampling from a single source, in addition to rinsing solutions, detergent and reverse-flow drainage. The sample changer unit connects to the main sipper unit to allow for sampling of up to four sources with a simple connection to the sample inlet of the main sample unit. The sipper can monitor raw, settled and finished water samples. Each sample changer unit is compatible with overflow and filtration devices, for up to four independent water treatment plant sources.
The sipper has built-in automatic cleaning, leak detection and protection. It is integrated into the new Aqualog 4.0 software sample Q for batch analysis and is fully compatible with the Aqualog DataStream Dashboard HTML software interface which facilitates monitoring and optimisation of water treatment processes for dissolved organic carbon and disinfection by-product formation potential monitoring.
