Water occurs in the most varied of qualities in our environment. As a rough differentiation, drinking water, waste water and cooling water can be named.
Organic impurities dissolved in the water in particular have a significant negative impact on its quality. This must be determined qualitatively and quantitatively for a determination of the water quality.
To analyze the organic constituents, small amounts of the water to be tested are fed into a thermal reactor and there oxidized to CO2. Its concentration is then measured with a Wi.Tec sensor at the reactor outlet. The TOC content of the water sample can be precisely determined on the basis of the measurement results.
