QuickTOC NPO Total Phosphate
Total Phosphate monitor
The parameter total phosphorus (TP) defines the sum of all phosphorus compounds that occur in various forms. The determination is defined of the German Institute of Standardization (DIN EN ISO 6878:2004-09).
Increased phosphorus concentration leads to the eutrophication of the aquatic environment. Impacts are oxygen deficiency with deadly consequences to fish and other aquatic organisms. This results in the need to monitor Phosphates.
Phosphorus can occur via waste water discharges or drainage of agriculture areas into the waters. In addition, nowadays detergents that contains phosphorus are often used for washing machine and dishwashers. Their increased usage and disposal leads to increased concentrations in the waste water.
The Total Phosphorus is determined by the photometric molybdenum blue method.
First the sample is mixed with an oxidising agent. Subsequently, the mixture is led into the reactor where ultra violet light (UV) activates the sample‘s oxidation. Finally, Total Phosphate in the sample is revealed by adding the molybdenum blue.
The Analyser is available with options for adding Total N measurement, and COD into the same instrument.
