Online Monitoring of Nitrate with Optical Sensors for Wastewater Process Control

Begins: 02 Jun 2016 1:30 PM EDT
Ends: 02 Jun 2016 2:30 PM EDT
Presenter(s): Dr. Robert Smith, YSI Applications Engineer – Wastewater


Nitrate is an important control parameter for many water resource recovery facilities (WRRF) which are required to denitrify wastewater. Two styles of immersible, reagentless probes are available for online nitrate monitoring: optical and ion-selective electrode (ISE). An optical sensor costs more upfront than an ion-selective electrode, but the cost of ownership is typically lower. Optical spectral sensors also offer the option to monitor other important wastewater parameters such as nitrite, COD, BOD, TOC, and TSS.

The webinar will cover several important topics to help the operator to select the most cost-effective sensor for a particular application by explaining the differences between the types of optical absorption sensors on the market. Case study information will also be presented, demonstrating how IQ SensorNet customers are using optical sensors to control their processes.

Webinar Highlights:

  • Principles of measurement
  • Types of sensors
  • Applications
  • Case studies
  • IQ SensorNet UV and UV VIS sensors

The YSI IQ SensorNet system is a modular water quality system for a complete sensor network ideal for various installation needs. The modular system can accept additional sensors easily at any time. This is a powerful system to continuously measure water quality parameters anywhere in a facility for process control. Join us for the upcoming webinar to find out more about continuous monitoring and control with the IQ SensorNet system.
