Tokyo, Japan - February 18, 2021
Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6841) announces the addition of the TB820D right angle scattered light turbidity detector, FC800D non-reagent type free available chlorine sensor unit, RC800D reagent type residual chlorine sensor unit, FLXA402T liquid analyzer for turbidity and chlorine, and PG400 pulse generator for clean unit to its OpreX™ Analyzers lineup for water treatment facilities. With the release of these new products, the same water purification technologies that have helped ensure high-quality drinking water in Japan will now be available in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, South Korea, Australia, and Taiwan. They will become progressively available in the Americas, Europe, and China after April.

Water quality must be monitored regularly, and a swift response must be made to correct any deficiencies to ensure a safe supply of drinking water. The World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines state that turbidity and chlorine density should be tested on all drinking water supplies.
Since introducing the free available chlorine analyzer (non-reagent type) in 1962 and the turbidity transmitter in 1973, Yokogawa has been a leading supplier of turbidity and chlorine analyzers and has continuously improved these products to meet Japan's stringent water supply requirements. These latest analyzers utilize self-diagnostic functions that help streamline the maintenance of plants and facilities.
- Industry-standard analyzer technology
Yokogawa analyzers make use of transmitted and scattered light turbidity measurement techniques that have been accepted for use as a de facto standard by water utility companies in Japan, and their reliability is widely acknowledged.
- Improved efficiency through self-diagnostics, wireless communications, and remote monitoring
The TB820D right angle scattered light turbidity detector, FC800D non-reagent type free available chlorine sensor unit, and RC800D reagent type residual chlorine sensor unit utilize self-diagnostic functions that can detect when maintenance is due, and when faults have occurred. The RC800D can also detect when measurement fluid has run out. Furthermore, the FLXA402T liquid analyzer for turbidity and chlorine is designed to link with these other sensors, convert the detected values, and relay that data wirelessly to the cloud so that it can be monitored remotely from any location. Reducing the necessity for on-site operation and maintenance enables facilities whose equipment is distributed over a wide area to operate more efficiently.
- Reduced implementation costs through the connection of multiple sensors
Unlike similar products currently available on the global market, the FLXA402T analyzer can be connected to two turbidity detectors and chlorine sensor units simultaneously. At sites that require the use of multiple sensors, this helps to hold down implementation costs.
