Ammonium concentration in a liquid can be measured using the colorimetric measuring principle. This video shows what it is about and how this measuring principle works.

Colorimetric system for online monitoring of water and wastewater treatment

Liquiline System CA80AM offers high-precision ammonium measurement in all critical control points. As member of the Liquiline platform, it enables plug & play and easy upgrade to a measuring station - minimizing the installation effort. Automatic calibration and cleaning as well as the low consumption of reagents save you operating and maintenance costs. Advanced diagnostics with remote access ensure process safety and support you in providing process documentation to the authorities.
