PC – Filter Performance Monitor Particle Counter

DETECTRONIC PC – Filter Performance Monitor Particle Counter

The DETECTRONIC PC Filter Performance Monitor Particle Counter is known for its ability to detect when a filter is nearing the end of its life. ORAKEL Particle Counters are advanced devices suitable for municipal and industrial water treatment applications, including filter performance monitoring, protecting RO membranes against colloidal contamination and corrosion product monitoring.

The ORAKEL Particle Counter works by counting particles and sizes particles larger than 127µm, particles smaller than 127µm, and counts and programs up to 6 size ranges for particles ranging from 2 to 127µm in diameter. The number of particles counted in each of these ranges (counts per milliliter, counts per 100 milliliters) and is reported as a raw count.

Particles in a stream of water refract a laser beam as they flow through a cell. This refraction is measured by a detector opposite the laser beam, and the number of refractions is equal to the number of particles. The size of the signal (generated as the particle passes through the beam) is proportional to the size of the particle.
