Raw Water/Source Monitoring Provides an indication of the solids loading entering the treatment plant to enable adjustment of the coagulant dose. 2.Monitoring clarified water Clarifier supernatant turbidity measurement monitors clarifier efficiency to provide early warning of floc blanket break-up or incorrect coagulant dosing. 3.Filter backwashing control Monitors filter backwash curve to minimize clean water usage. 4.Monitoring of filtered water Ensures correct operation of the filters and guards against turbidity breakthrough. 5.Monitoring of final drinking water quality Provides a final quality check after disinfection before distribution. 1 2 3 4 5

5 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 5 Principle of Operation Nephelometric measurement  The 4690 range of turbidity sensors utilize a nephelometric design  Light passes through the sample where it is scattered by any suspended particles  such as silt, clay, algae, organic matter, microorganisms, colloidal material, and large dissolved molecules  This scattered light is measured by a detector that is located at a 90° angle to the incident beam  Detector response correlates to turbidity  A higher level of scattered light reaching the detector results in a higher turbidity value  Ultralow back-scatter allows for very accurate readings as only light scattering due to turbidity is measured Light is scattered by suspended particles in the water Light Source Lens Detector Scattered light is measured at a 90° angle to the incident beam

6 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 6 Choice of Both ISO and EPA Compliant Sensors Suitable for regulatory monitoring EPA 1 Compliant Sensor  EPA 180.1 compliant sensor uses a “White Light”  White light sensor is good for low level turbidity measurement  Suitable for US EPA reporting of filtered water ISO 2 Compliant Sensor  ISO 7027 compliant sensor uses a “Near Infrared LED”  The wavelength (860-890nm) is less susceptible to color interferences  Good for both low level turbidity measurement and for measuring samples with color 1 United States Environmental Protection Agency 2 International Organization for Standardization

8 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 8 Flow-Through Sensor Design Fast response and reduced maintenance Fast Response Time  Minimal sample residence time allows fast response time to process changes  Typically 90% step change in <45 seconds  Up to 75% faster response time than some competitor turbidity designs  Offers improved process control Reduced Maintenance  Flow-through design does not act as a “sediment trap”  Removes requirement for manual cleaning of settled particles in the sensor body  Reduces cost of ownership

9 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 9 Automatic Cleaning of Optical Cell Reduces maintenance and ensures accuracy  Optical cell fouling greatly reduces accuracy of turbidity measurement  ABB’s 4690 Sensors feature an Auto- clean system that overcomes the problem of optical cell fouling  Mechanical wiper assembly physically wipes clean the optical cell at user- programmable intervals  No need to regularly disassemble the sensor to inspect/manually clean the photocell window  Reduces maintenance and lowers cost of ownership whilst ensuring accuracy and reliability

10 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 10 Dry Secondary Calibration Standard Simplifies routine instrument verification  Optomechanical filter that diverts a fixed quantity of light to the detector corresponding to a known turbidity value  Each secondary standard is factory calibrated and certified against a primary formazine standard  Quick & simple verification/calibration procedure that minimizes instrument downtime  Reduces cost of ownership by reducing chemical standards and the time taken on-site to prepare such standards  Minimise employee’s exposure to Formazine which is highly toxic and a suspected carcinogen  Simple to use, repeatable and reliable Insert directly into sensor body during calibration procedure Available in different turbidity concentrations to suit the application

11 © ABB Group September 1, 2014 | Slide 11 Patented User Replacement Bulb Design Allows lamp replacement in under a minute  Changing incandescent bulbs to ensure peak performance used to be a laborious process  With ABB’s replacement bulb design you can throw those cotton gloves away!  Each bulb is supplied fully protected in a patented assembly with integral light guide  No direct contact with the bulb  Ensures maximum lamp life  No threading of wiring  No waiting for the bulb to cool  Simply plug and play
