GE upgrades Total Organic Carbon analyzing tools

The TOC Analyzer tool is designed to help companies monitor, measure and control the organics in their wastewater and industrial process water.

Organic contamination in water is a challenge faced by businesses and municipalities on a regular basis. Organics monitoring technologies from GE have been a key solution to helping customers address the problem and, in turn, optimize industrial processes and wastewater treatment processes to achieve necessary water quality.

The new product enhancements allow the advanced TOC Analyzer technology to monitor organics using close to real-time data to monitor and optimize water processes for higher up-time and overall cost savings for customers. InnovOx analyzers include robust sample handling capability, industry leading Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) technology and simple maintenance and operation, all designed to enhance performance and uptime in challenging applications.

However, recent enhancements to application-specific sample preparation of the TOC Analyzer technology include the ability to handle water samples with up to 5 percent organics and up to 0.1 percent total suspended solids, particles in wastewater and high-temperature sample measurement.

With continuous monitoring capability, InnovOx catches organic spikes in process water providing the near real-time data needed to identify issues and optimize processes. By removing sample and precipitated impurities between each analytical run, InnovOx eliminates contamination of sample matrices, providing reliable, long-term system performance.
