Water is an integral part of everyday life, as well as being a primary constituent of many manufactured products. The use and consumption of water brings with it a requirement for a minimum standard of quality for each application. In many instances, the standards of the local water authority or other municipal provider will suffice. When water is sourced outside of the municipal system, or further processing is used to polish the water supply to a higher standard, measurement of specific criteria is needed to assure that the water meets whatever requirements are in place for minimum production and quality standards.

Swan Analytical Instruments, globally recognized manufacturer of analytical instruments for water, integrates instrumentation for several water quality measurements into a packaged unit. Several variants are available, each with its own set of measurement targets tailored for differing application requirements. The Distribution Quality Monitors deliver a complete analytical package on a single frame, saving the customer from having to build up an entire analytical setup on their own. Every component is designed and installed to work perfectly with every other component, for a no hassle path to accomplishing necessary analytical work.

The online monitors can target chlorine, pH, conductivity, and turbidity. An electronics package provides alarms, limit switches, PID control, diagnostic alarms, and dual 4-20 mA outputs from each of three transmitters. The consolidated package embodies years of Swan experience to deliver reliable results with a minimized requirement for human attention.
