Particle counting: It’s Just One Piece of the Quality Control Puzzle


This white paper by Pacific Scientific Instruments, now part of Hach Ultra Analytics, explains particle counters, which are becoming a critical measurement in achieving and maintaining optimal performance at water treatment plants. Information from a particle counter is most valuable when used in combination with the many other on-line and laboratory measurements. This paper, focused on one utility, shows how combining particle-counting data with information from other measurements can help achieve consistent, high-quality treated water effluent at reasonable cost.
