Teledyne’s 6700U leverages ultraviolet absorption (UVA) detection to measure for certain dissolved organic substances in water treatment and wastewater applications. Absorption of UV light at the 254 nm band is an indication of the presence of disinfection byproducts (DBPs), tri-halo methanes (TTHM) and halo-acetic acids (HAA). The 6700U provides an on-line measurement without reagents and utility gases required.
Method of Detection
The 6700U uses a stable, long-life xenon flash lamp to emit UV light through the optical path to the detector. In the presence of some dissolved organics, 254 nm light will be absorbed by the sample and the resulting loss of signal will be translated into a volumetric concentration.
