Frequently asked questions about water analysis equipment

As part of our fluid control capabilities, one area of expertise that Bürkert can assist you with is water analysis. We have developed advanced water analysis equipment in the form of our Type 8905 Online Analysis System. Here, we answer some of your most frequently asked questions about water analysis and introduce you to the major benefits of the Type 8905.

What is water analysis?

Water chemistry analyses identify and quantify the chemical components and properties of water samples. Chemical water analysis is carried out on water used in industrial processes, on waste-water stream, on rivers and stream, on rainfall and on the sea. The results of such analyses provide vital information to make decisions or to provide re-assurance that conditions are as expected.

How do you analyse water?

Titration has traditionally been the favoured method of plant control analysis. This method involves a standard solution being added to a sample within a buret until an end point, such as a colour change, is indicated. Other water sample analysis equipment and methods include photometers or spectrophotometers, colorimetric comparator tests and various chromatography instrumentation.

Can you tell me more about the Type 8905 water analysis meter?


As water analysis equipment manufacturers, we have developed the Type 8905 Online Analysis System, a modular system for monitoring all important water parameters on one platform. It is a multichannel multifunction unit for the Bürkert sensor cubes and electronic modules from the efficient device integration platform (EDIP).

The Type 8905 water analysis meter is the device for continuous measurement of high priority water parameters such as pH-value, conductivity, ORP-value and turbidity. It includes a modular sensor and electronic system with up to 30 analysis sensor cubes in one büS system. It is prepared for fieldbus connectivity, remote operation and remote maintenance and our MEMS technology means a minimal footprint and minimum sample water demand.

Where can I find water analysis equipment?

This is an easy one; all you need to do is head to our website to peruse our water analysis equipment for sale, such as the Type 8905. We would then recommend speaking to one of our experts to discuss your individual requirements.
