Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a liquid process measurement for determining the amount of oxygen dissolved or carried in the process liquid. There are three common technologies for dissolved oxygen measurements: polographic, galvanic and optical. The standard units of measure are milligrams per liter (mg/l), parts per million (ppm), parts per billion (ppb), or % saturation.
The rugged design of the OXYFERM's membrane is stable, fast to respond, has low flow dependance, and withstands numerous sterilizations.
Hamilton's VisiFerm is the first optical sensor ever for the measurement of dissolved oxygen that has significant advantages compared to classical Clark cells because there's no electrolyte needed and the luminophore is embedded in a robust sensor cap. Typical applications are biotechnology, water treatment and monitoring as well as in breweries, wineries and soft drink processing.
The VisiTrace optical DO sensor meets crucial needs in industries like power plants and breweries where controlling the dissolved oxygen to low ppb levels is important for maintaining product quality or reducing downtime.
