Monitoring Water Quality

Part 3. Turbidity Turbidity of water is an optical property that causes light to be scattered and absorbed, rather than transmitted. This is primarily caused by suspended solids. The higher the turbidity, the greater the amount of scattered light. Even a very pure fluid will scatter light to a certain degree; no solution will have…

Monitoring Water Quality

Part 2. COD and BOD Properties of water bodies vary based on natural factors such as landscape position and slope, watershed size, geology, and soil composition, as well as man-made pollution. Before a water source can be used for human, animal, or plant consumption, it must be assessed and possibly treated to make sure it…

Part 1. Disinfection Properties of water bodies vary based on natural factors such as landscape position and slope, watershed size, geology, and soil composition, as well as man-made pollution. Before a water source can be used for human, animal, or plant consumption, it must be assessed and possibly treated to make sure it is safe…

New GroLine Hydroponics Dosing Systems

Nutrient and pH Control in Agriculture are two of the major factors that affect plant growth and yield output. Automation of the control of these factors result in significant efficiencies in a time where sustainable resource management is crucial. Hanna Instruments is proud to present two new GroLine solutions for the automation of pH and…

Measuring Dissolved Oxygen in Nanobubbles

Microbubble or nanobubble technology has attracted attention of scientists in recent years.  It is an important technology in the agriculture, hydroponic, and aquaculture industries. Some of the applications of nanobubbles which have been explored around the globe are: Acceleration of metabolism in vegetables and shellfishes Improved shelf stability of products with bubbles (foam products) Nutritional…
