Monitoring Wastewater More Effectively with Colorimetric Online Analysis



  December 12, 2019

  10:00 a.m. PST, 1:00 p.m. EST, 18:00 GMT, 19:00 CET




Monitoring and treating effluent water protects our waterways from the discharge of pollutants such as organic matter, metals, nutrients and pathogens. Many labs use conventional manual titrations to determine low concentrations of metal ions, which is time-consuming and error-prone. A much more efficient and accurate alternative to manual titration is online colorimetric analysis. This technique is ideal because of its high accuracy and selectivity.

Join this webinar to hear Kraig Kmiotek, Product Specialist Process Analytics at Metrohm USA, discuss how online analyzers remove subjectivity and human error while providing reliable and consistent results. Using real-world applications, Kraig will show you how to improve metal ion analysis with online colorimetric techniques. Bring your questions to the event and have them answered during the live Q&A session at the end.
