Turbidity Analysis Simplified

The PTV 1000 is our all-new low-level turbidity drinking water analyser.
The next generation

User-developed system

To develop this instrument, a team was assembled globally comprising of recognised turbidity experts. They were tasked with creating a new process instrument that addresses all of the issues customers struggle with while using their current turbidity systems. These advancements, along with the addition of state of-the-art communications and user interface make the PTV 1000 the next generation of process turbidimeters.

A user inspired system

8 key factors to consider about the PTV 1000

  • Unique and patented integrated bubble trap
  • Ultra low maintenance
  • Simple user interface via touchscreen or App
  • Low flow requirements
  • ISO 7027 or EPA 180.1 compliant optics design
  • Simple to mount
  • Easy calibration and verification
  • Low TOTEX

Non contact stabilised formazin

More about T-Cal plus calibration solutions.

No longer is verification with a secondary standard the only option. T-CAL® Turbidity Standards are primary standards which when used with the T-CALplus™ packaging allow stabilised formazin to be used for calibration, without exposing the user to the solution.   Simple to use, no waste and no spillage.

Safe for the user

The T-CALplus™ packaging is highly durable, which results in the user never coming into contact with the solution. Exposure to chemicals is immediately eliminated.

Easy to mix

For mixing start by squeezing and manipulating the packaging for around a minute to ensure it is accurately mixed, and it’s ready to use.

No Bubbles

Having Bubbles in your sample can be a significant interference in turbidity measurement. Our T-CALplus™ packaging is vacuum sealed, allowing users to mix a bubble free standard.

Discover how the use of T-CALplus™ Standards simplify the calibration and verification process.

If you’re happy using secondary solid standards for verification, no problem, they’re available too.

Smart interface

Rethink the controller

The PTV 1000 Series has two ways for users to interact with the sensor. The user can use the local touch screen, or they can connect to the sensors using the AquaLXP™ App (iOS and Android). A log of every reading, calibration, verification, cleaning or other maintenance performed over the lifetime of the sensor is registered on the instrument.

User friendly instructions

By incorporating procedures and technical pointers, all users have quick and easy access to everything they need at their fingertips.


For security purposes, we employ the latest proximity sensors to allow the operator to work on the sensor. Combining this with the ability to password protect two layers of access, operators and supervisors can be assured of data integrity.

Generate data

Operators can extract vital data which can help identify trends faster by viewing or exporting the information for a selected period as a table or as a graph.

Minimal training

App based interface means operators find it easy to use and navigate. No more complicated menu structures!


“We have installed 3 demonstration units and each installation was a breeze that delivered excellent data. You can immediately tell it is a better measurement than the older technology by the lower reading it provides. The patented light dump does an excellent job of eliminating stray light.”
