Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
Minimising costs through measurement of CO2 concentration.
Both water suppliers and water users need to know the quality of the water they are supplying, using and disposing of so as to minimise their costs.
One measure of water quality is the organic carbon content (TOC). TOC is measured by oxidising the organic carbon to produce CO2 which is then measured and the value converted into a TOC measurement. Edinburgh Sensors supply sensors to measure the CO2 concentration produced by oxidising the organic carbon in a water sample, allowing the TOC to be calculated. This TOC value determines one measure of how clean the water sample is.
