Ammonium Analytical Sensors
Aimed at municipal and industrial water, potable water and wastewater, these ammonium analytical sensors consist of two universal sensors and replaceable electrode cartridges.
The S10 is an immersion or insertion style sensor, and the S17 is a valve retractable style sensor. They are fully rebuildable and feature a 316 stainless steel body that incorporates the sensing element, a temperature module and a signal conditioner with cabling. Both sensors use the company’s replaceable electrode cartridges, which can be selected to measure pH, ORP, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and resistivity. The are constructed in a variety of configurations and materials to support diverse industries. The S10 Sensor is designed with a 0.75-inch MNPT compression fitting as the process connection. This construction feature allows a variable insertion length to accommodate installation in pipe tees, flow cells or through tank walls. If the trunk fitting is reversed, the sensor can be installed in a pipe for submersion in a tank. The S17 Sensor is designed with a 1-inch MNPT ball valve, a 1-x-0.75 inch reducer and a 0.75 inch MNPT compression fitting to provide the process connection. Loosening the compression fitting allows the sensor to side freely through the ball valve for insertion either into the process or retraction from the process. Once the sensor is retracted, the ball valve can be closed and the sensor can be removed for maintenance or replacement without shutting down the process line.
