Besides pH, conductivity is the second most important metric in chemical process analysis, characterizing the ability of aqueous solutions to conduct electricity. In this way, measurement techniques can control or regulate all processes involving salts, acids or bases.
Applications range from simple water treatment tasks to industrial water treatment applications requiring temperature, pressure, stain resistance and chemical resistance (such as concentrated sulfuric acid and hydrofluoric acid).
- Dosing and dilution of chemicals.
- Determination of the concentration of aggressive chemicals.
- Washing and cleaning processes, especially CIP (Cleaning in Place) processes in the food and beverage industry.
- Desalination control in cooling towers.
- Control of drinking water, pure water and high purity water recovery processes.
