Advanced Sensors EX-100M/1000M Side-stream Oil/Particulate in Water Analyzer

Advanced Sensors EX-100M/1000M Side-stream is a side-stream oil/particulate in water analyzer that combines video microscopy measurement for particle size analysis with the highly accurate Laser-Induced Fluorescence oil content measurement technique. This allows measurement of Total Suspended Solids (TSS), oil droplet size, and gas bubble size whilst still accurately measuring the concentration of oil in water. In addition to the EX-100M features, the EX-1000M model offers spectral analysis.
