The recently installed alkalinity analyser: the new 2026 Process Analyser
Metrohm Australia recently installed the 2026 analyser to monitor the alkalinity concentration in water supply.
High alkalinity concentrations in drinking water cause scale deposition in the water distribution system.
As a consequence this scaling entails rather extensive and costly maintenance issues for the municipalities.
Keeping the alkalinity in the desired range and thus minimising maintenance labour and costs, is essential. Therefore alkalinity levels need to be monitored – ideally continuously and autonomously.
The method of choice is titration
Titration is a very reliable and accurate method for monitoring the alkalinity concentration in drinking water supply.
It is also far superior to inline pH measurement as it doesn’t require any calibration.
The 2026 Titrolyzer is used for titrations and ISE measurements.
Titration is an absolute analytical method, offering high selectivity through the use of dedicated electrodes and titrants, with no need for calibration. The titration method is suitable for a variety of proven standardized and regulated methods covering a huge number of wet chemical applications. The 2026 Titrolyzer can be your partner to secure the safety of your water sources and be an integral part of improving your process.
Several markets are the perfect fit for the 2026 Titrolyzer such as chemical, petrochemical, semiconductor, mining, steel/metal, and potable water.
