Total Organic Carbon, or TOC, is one of several common water purity measurements. Purified water use in power generation, semiconductor manufacturing, and pharmaceutical production all depend upon minimum standards of quality to avoid adverse impact on process output or operation. Elevated levels of carbon compounds in purified process water indicates that water treatment equipment is not performing properly and needs attention.

TOC measurement involves oxidation of carbon compounds in the presence of UV light and a measurement of sample conductivity. Processing of the raw measurement yields a value for total organic carbon. Analytical instruments  that lessen the need for human involvement and deliver rapid and accurate results are preferred. Mettler Toledo provides an advanced solution for TOC measurement with it 5000TOCi analyzer.

  • Fast continuous measurement
  • Reagent and chemical free
  • Reliable operation
  • ISM Intelligent Sensor Management
