Specific conductivity measurements of water used in industrial processes can reveal important information about the water quality and its suitability for a particular use. Condensate and feedwater, as well as other process uses of water, routinely use specific conductivity measurement to confirm or analyze process performance.

Continuous conductivity measurement that delivers real time data is the most beneficial setup for monitoring water quality. The instrumentation will be an integral part of a larger control and monitoring system, so a variety of selectable output signals is advantageous. Programmable function relays that can respond when certain conditions occur provide the operator with additional automatic response options for coordinating other operations or alerting when conditions are out of a desired range.

Processing operations will benefit from products that minimize the amount of user time required to keep instrumentation in operation. Whether calibration, repair, adjustment, or required maintenance, any instrument that reduces the amount of "customer involvement" is worth considering.

The AMI CACE from Swan Analytical Instruments is a continuous on-line conductivity monitor targeted at water-steam cycle applications. It incorporates a host of technological and user friendly features that make it an advantageous choice for feedwater and condensate monitoring. Detail is provided by the datasheet included below. Share all your analytical and steam system monitoring requirements and challenges with instrumentation specialists. The combination of your own process knowledge and experience with their product application expertise will yield an effective solution.
