Chlorine Sensor

 


Key Features

  • Amperometric sensors
  • No chemical reagents
  • Stable and reliable
  • Suitable for all potable, process and salt waters

Lower costs of ownership

  • Up to a year between maintenance
  • Up to 3 months between calibration
  • Up to 15 years life


Description

The ORAKEL range of Residual Chlorine Analysers, Residual Chlorine Controllers and Residual Chlorine Monitors are membrane devices which are insensitive to changing pH, use no reagents, are extremely stable, and have reduced maintenance and reduced whole life costs.

How it Works

The membraned amperometric chlorine sensors are enhanced with a third, reference electrode which eliminates zero drift.  Its unique design means that pH correction is not usually required at all, completely eliminating reagents.

In addition to the state of the art potentiostatic chrono-amperometric free chlorine and total chlorine sensors, the ORAKEL range of residual chlorine analysers has all the functionality that you need, and more.

Applications

The ORAKEL chlorine analyser range is particularly suited to working in sites where reliability and ease of use are most important.

Water Treatment applications:

  • Chlorine Dosing
  • Cooling Towers
  • Food Preparation
  • Paper Mills
  • Remote Sites
  • Secondary Chlorination

Chlorine sensor options:

  • Free Chlorine
  • Total Chlorine
  • Free Chlorine ‘zero’

The ORAKEL Chlorine sensor can be installed in a variety of auxiliary flow cells and self-cleaning devices.

pH Compensation


For some applications with high and variable pH, pH compensation can improve the accuracy of the chlorine readings. For pH compensation to be valid it must be done with the highest quality pH sensors and with chlorine sensors that have a reduced susceptibility to varying pH, such as those used in the ORAKEL range of chlorine analysers.

An alternative to pH compensation is the use of CO2 to suppress the pH such that changes in the pH of the sample do not affect the chlorine reading.
