Question
Can the color probe NV3300 be used for the quality of the centrate in the outlet of a centrifuge in the dewatering process of a WWTP?
Summary
NV3300 color sensor application in the WWTP
Answer
The centrate is known to be a milky and high turbidity milieu. The NV3300 sensor is not suitable to measure color in such a milieu. The color which can be detected with the NV3300 is in the range yellow, green, brownish.  In the WWTP application, the NV3300 is used mainly for the effluent monitoring, for water entering in the receiving water body. Although the NV3300 has a turbidity compensation, turbidity can seriously affect the color determination. That is why, the transmission value at 740nm should not fall below 66%.
