PAT and TOC Analysis With an Onboard Automated Standards Introduction System (OASIS)
This paper describes the use of an on-board automated standards introduction system (OASIS) that is used to run verification standards and system suitability tests in order to ensure the reliability of the TOC results. The speed and efficiency gained by use of this automated system means that the analyzer is verified quickly, bringing a risk-based approach to ensuring product quality. Furthermore, this system may be used to capture a water sample in the event of an excursion occurrence, providing the water system engineer direct evidence to discover the root cause and providing valuable information for water system remediation and protection. Risk is minimized with the assurance that the analyzer is always producing accurate and reliable results and that the water system is operating at peak performance.
