Total Organic Carbon, referred to as TOC, is a measurement providing one of several facets to indicate the purity of a water sample or stream. Organic contamination in water for use in power generation, semiconductor manufacturing, and pharmaceutical production poses a number of operational risks or quality failures that can substantially impact process output. The elevated presence of carbon compounds in certain purified water sources can be an indicator that water treatment processes are not performing properly and need attention.

The measurement technology involves oxidation of carbon compounds in the presence of UV light and measuring sample conductivity. Processing of the raw measurement yields a value for TOC. Analytical instruments benefit from having features and attributes that lessen the need for human involvement and deliver rapid and accurate results. Mettler Toledo provides an advanced solution for TOC measurement with it 5000TOCi analyzer.
