This meter is ideal for testing water samples from households, lakes, brooks and even the ocean. It can determine precise turbidity measurements that comply with USEPA 180.1 Standard.

2020we1This portable turbidity meter is designed to test water samples for the cloudiness or haziness caused by individual particles, or suspended solids. These particles are usually invisible to the naked eye but with this meter the reading becomes clear. The measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality as the suspended solid matter can often be toxic or contain bacteria.

Turbidity can be caused by many things such as the growth of phytoplankton in the water and human activities such as construction, mining and agriculture. This meter can be used to monitor and measure possible water contaminants.
