Title
Application Note : Monitor TOC in Drinking Water Sources to Optimize Chemical Usage and Minimize DBP's
Overview
The intake/raw water taken from rivers, lakes, aquifers, and reservoirs contain organic contamination and naturally occurring organic matter (NOM). When raw water is chlorinated for the disinfection process, residual chlorine can react with the organics, and potential carcinogens, known as disinfection by products (DBPs), such as trihalomethanes (THMs), can be formed. By measuring the organic matter in raw water using total organic carbon (TOC) analysis, it is possible to optimize chemical usage and minimize the formation of DBPs that can result from improper chemical application. Hach’s BioTector B3500dw online TOC analyzer accurately and reliably detects organics to optimize the monitoring and removal of organics based on real-time TOC measurements. BioTector’s reliable TOC analysis leads to efficient TOC removal from raw water and helps optimize the chlorination and the coagulant/flocculant feed within the water treatment process. BioTector’s efficient oxidation process, accurate analysis, and rapid response provide stability in the treatment process, prevent overdosing and unnecessary treatment, and deliver cost savings.
