ORP stands for Oxidation-Reduction Potential. It is a measure of the tendency of a substance to lose or gain electrons. In water treatment, ORP is used to measure the effectiveness of disinfectants, such as chlorine and ozone.
DULCOTEST sensors are used to measure ORP in a variety of applications, including:
- Water treatment
- Industrial process waters
- Swimming pool water
- Potable water
- Chemically contaminated water
- Cooling water
- Waste water
The typical measuring range for ORP sensors is -1,500 to +1,500 mV. However, wider ranges are possible depending on the measuring device.
The production of DULCOTEST sensors is subject to very strict quality controls. This ensures that the sensors are accurate and reliable.
If you are interested in using DULCOTEST sensors for your ORP measurements, please contact your local distributor.
Here are some additional details about ORP measurements:
- ORP is a non-selective measurement, which means that it does not measure a specific oxidant or reducing agent.
- ORP is affected by pH, so it is important to measure both parameters together.
- ORP measurements tend to saturate as the concentration of the oxidant or reducing agent increases.
Despite these limitations, ORP measurements are a valuable tool for monitoring the effectiveness of disinfectants and other processes in water treatment and industrial applications.
