THE PRINCIPLE OF COLORIMETRIC ANALYSIS

The SPI water quality system measures the concentration of peroxide or chlorine residual in water distribution on the basis of colorimetric analysis.

Colorimetric analysis is the method of determining the concentration of a chemical in a solution with the aid of a specially formulated reagent.

The intensity of the discolouration after the introduction of the reagent forms the basis for calculating the quantity of peroxide or chlorine in the water.

This process provides extremely accurate analysis.

The SPI method starts with colorimetric principles, and is fully automated and integrated to deliver a more precise and more accurate measurement than other forms of measurement, and is not affected by pH, flow or water matrix effects which frequently distort the results found in conventional measurement technologies.

SPI II series - 170

The SPI-170 is a fixed-panel water quality measurement system based on the colorimetric measuring method that utilizes peroxide reagent discoloration.

The intensity of the coloration after measurement with the reagent is proportional to the quantity of Hydrogen Peroxide (P170) or Chlorine (C170) in the water.

The greatest advantage of colorimetric measurement is that it is not affected by external factors like pH and flow.

The SPI-170 is preassembled on a single panel (L x W x H = 485 x 485 x 100 mm) with a control unit and intake/analysis unit.

The SPI II series technology is patent pending.

Functions of the SPI-170 are:

  • Measuring the hydrogen peroxide or chlorine level
  • Measuring the pH level
  • Measuring the flow
  • Controlling the dosing pumps for hydrogen peroxide, chlorine or acid
  • Flow protection (no flow/no dose)
  • Circulation contact protection
  • A supply voltage of 12VDC

Specifications of the measurable parameters:

  • Hydrogen Peroxide or Chlorine
    • Method: peroxide colour reagent
  • pH
    • Method: pH gel-electrode
  • Flow
    • Method: via pulse or current sending flow meters like VDO, Burkert, INEL (if your type isn’t mentioned, please contact us)

P170

Software:

The SPI-170 makes use of simple operating software. The complete operation is executed using the buttons on the panel. The display shows measured values and settings. The hardware features an internal memory where data, reports and calibration settings are stored. These data are available on demand and are provided with a date and time of occurrence.

With the optional SPI-REMOTE software, it is possible to control and access the data on the SPI using a network connection or the Internet.

With the optional SPI-GRAPHS software, data can be downloaded using the remote connections.
