Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) measures the water's tendency to accept or release electrons.

ORP

Water can have a positive or negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) and it is measured in volts. ORP is a way to measure water’s ability to accept or release electrons during a chemical reaction. Understanding the ORP value helps determine the quality of the water and thereby helps operators decide what water treatment processes may be required. The more positive the ORP value, the greater the tendency the water has to oxidise (gain electrons from) organisms or other material in the water, thereby killing or destroying them.

ORAKEL ORP sensors measure the redox potential of any aqueous solution. They are platinum-based sensors with integral reference electrodes which use no reagents, are extremely stable and have reduced maintenance and lower whole-life costs.

applications

The ORP electrodes are filled with a polymeric gel. This innovative design makes the electrodes more responsive, with a longer life than ordinary electrodes (up to 3 years).

Anywhere you have a requirement to measure ORP is a suitable application for the ORAKEL System. The ORP sensor range is particularly suited to working in sites where reliability and
ease of use are most important.

Typical water treatment applications:
■ Remote sites
■ Cooling towers
■ Food preparation
■ Paper mills
■ Chemical process
■ Mining

installation options

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

Autoflush

The ORAKEL can come equipped to automatically clean itself at user defined intervals with all the benefits of no operator intervention for 6 months. The Autoflush is particularly useful in food preparation, pulp and paper, and many applications where there is likely to be a build up of solids in the sample. Autoflush is available for at line, and in line versions including dip and screw in autoclean pipe version.
