Ion Sensor Measures Fluoride Accurately With Ease of Use and Simple Maintenance

Tuesday, 14 May 2013


IRVINE (US) - Engineers and technicians in need of highly accurate Fluoride ion (F) measurement will find the intelligent S80 Fluoride Specific Ion Sensor from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) combines with the AC10 Self-Cleaning Module and the breakthrough Model T80 Universal Transmitter to form a complete Fluoride analyzer system, offering precise measurement while extending sensor life and reducing plant operating costs. 

The usage of Fluoride and its accurate measurement is essential to the manufacture of semiconductors, memory chips and other electronic components, including the effective etching of semiconductor wafers. Such electronic component fabrication processes produce wastewater contaminated with Fluoride that must be accurately measured in order to be treated properly.  The S80-AC10-T80 can be used as a Fluoride analyzer system wherever there is a manufacturing process need to monitor Fluoride levels in water, helping plants to operate more efficiently.

ECD’s Model S80 Intelligent Sensors are versatile, rugged and low-maintenance. They are available in two Universal Sensor Designs; Insertion/Submersion or Valve Retractable with flared end to prevent blowout. They feature long-life, replaceable electrode cartridges to lower operating costs and are available with multiple individual measurement parameters in the same mechanical configuration – pH, ORP, Dissolved Oxygen, Conductivity and Resistivity as well as Specific Ion.

S80 Sensors feature the ECD six-point advantage making them adaptable to most industrial applications. The standard Model S80 sensors have a rugged ¾-inch O.D. 316stainless steel body with a 10-foot cable or an optional waterproof detachable cable assembly. The S80 Intelligent Fluoride Sensor measures Fluoride ions at concentrations from 0.02-2000 ppm at a temperature range of 0°-80°C and a pH range of 5-8 pH.

The ECD Model T80 Universal Transmitter features a highly intelligent digital transmitter protocol to simplify process measurement and reduce maintenancecosts.   The T80 is a single channel transmitter designed for the continuous measurement of multiple parameters in a general-purpose industrial environment that digitally communicates with any ECD Model S80 Intelligent Sensor and automatically configures the transmitter’s menus and display screens to the measured parameter. The Model T80 automatically configures to any of the listed measurements so that there is no longer a need to inventory multiple instrument types.

The AC10 is an Air Blast Spray Cleaner for Sensors that is available as either a single or dual channel system for use with the S80 and other ECD Sensor designs. It helps maintain sensor measurement accuracy in turbid water conditions by preventing the buildup of biofilms and other soft coatings, decreasing sensor maintenance cycles. The AC10 Air Blast Spray Cleaner reduces sensor cleaning time and the amount of chemicals used for unnecessary watertreatments performed due to inaccurate sensor readings caused by films and coatings that develop over time on the sensors.
