Water quality analysis is performed in commercial, residential, and industrial facilities to determine the right water treatment method. Water quality analysis is performed using various instruments such as photometers and colorimeters. These devices determine the concentration of different inorganic and organic compounds in water from the color density. If you wish to buy a photometer online look no further! At Cannon Water, we stock a wide range of water quality photometers from leading brands. These photometers have been successfully used for a wide range of water tests all these years owing to their dependability. We assure competitive prices and the fastest turnaround times in the industry.
Working of Photometers Explained
Photometers are designed to detect the presence of nitrates, radionuclides, heavy metals, phosphates, pesticides, and fluorides in water. These devices feature five elements – a white light source, wavelength control, sample collection compartment, meter, and detector.
- The white light emitted by the light source is filtered using wavelength control.
- The filtered wavelength is made to pass through the sample in the collection compartment.
- Color density is sensed by the detector that works with the meter to display the absorbed light values.
Electrophotometers and spectrophotometers are two types of photometers used for water quality testing. These instruments differ
- Electrophotometers: They use simple optical filters that are designed for specific wavelengths. The filters are usually designed for measuring the color density of a particular constituent, so, they need to be changed if you are measuring another constituent. Electrophotometers are commonly used for measuring the quantity of nitrate and chlorine constituents in water.
- Spectrophotometers: They use diffraction grating or a prism for wavelength filtering. Among these two types of photometers, spectrophotometers are widely used because they use the same filter or prism to measure the color density of different constituents. The wavelength of filtered light can be altered easily by changing the prism’s angle.
Working of Colorimeters Explained
Colorimeters also work similar to photometers but slightly differ in their design. They use a light source, filter, mirrors, lenses, and slit, and a photocell for measuring the concentration of constituents in the water. The light of a specific wavelength is made to pass through the solution containing constituents. This light strikes on the photocell and thus, the absorbed light and output is determined.
