Turbidity meter

A Turbidimeter is a device used to measure the Turbidity of a liquid. This instrument is capable of measuring the size and concentration of particles in a suspension by scattering light in a tube. In other words, a turbidity meter determines how turbid a liquid is. This equipment consists of a light source, a cell to contain the sample and a light detector (photocell).

Turbidity is measured in NTU, which stands for Nephelometric Turbidity Units. A Turbidimeter measures the intensity of light scattered at 90 degrees when a beam of light passes through a water sample. The unit used in older times was the JTU (Jackson Turbidity Units), measured with the Jackson candle turbidimeter. This unit is no longer in standard use.

Turbidity meter in operation

To know the degree to which water loses its transparency, it is necessary and indispensable in the quality of drinking water; the measurement of turbidity requires the use of a light beam, this is known as the incident light beam, with defined characteristics, in order to determine the semiquantitative presence of particulate material present in water or any fluid sample.

When we filter water using any properly functioning filtration system, the turbidity of the effluent is monitored with a turbidity meter, this instrument has a beam of incident light that detects the material present in water, which causes the light beam to scatter and this scattered light detects and quantifies in relation to a traceable calibration standard.
