Application Note: Drinking and Waste Water Treatment
10 December 2012

Water clarity is measured by monitoring the turbidity. This is useful to check the effectiveness of the treatment process, but is no use in controlling dosing or investigating the source of a problem if one arises. In this application note it is shown that the Malvern Zetasizer can be used for the measurement and control of the zeta potential of suspended material in water in a treatment plant. This will improve water quality and increase plant throughput.
