The Sentinel Colorimeter uses colorimetric sensors to measure the induced optical absorption produced as a result of reaction of the component with reagents to form a colored complex. The system’s dual-wavelength optical configuration and an autoblank feature compensate for background color and turbidity. A submerged colorimetric probe measures the absorbance of the solution after reaction of sample and reagents; color produced by chemical reaction is directly proportional to the analyte being measured. The probe is cleaned and rinsed between analyses, thus eliminating the problems of optics fouling. The standard probe is made of Kynar™ and the reflector of Hastelloy C, which provides excellent chemical resistance. The probe can be supplied in two different standard optical path lengths, 2 and 4 cm, determined by concentration. True multi-featured two-point calibration technique enables routine check of trace analysis by simply using distilled water. A periodic check of span standard can also be performed easily.

Hardness in brine
The Sentinel Titrator enables on-line colorimetric and potentiometric (pH and redox) measurement, where the titrant volume required to reach equilibrium is proportional to the concentration of the analyte being measured. The Sentinel Titrator can perform single or dual end-point titrations and is equipped with three detection methods (fixed, relative, and derivative endpoint) to ensure flexibility and accuracy. Expanded diagnostic capabilities include programmable learn cycles to detect chemistry endpoints automatically. Users may program several methods and the system allows for multiple reagents to be added. Analyses are fully automatic in all cases. Users can easily change the frequency of analysis and calibration, as well as most default values, to improve or customize a setup; three different access levels provide system security. Automatic calibration is user-selectable and configurable with calibration repeat and alarm limits. The Sentinel Titrator also features a full auto-cleaning capability for reliability and reduced maintenance.

3 Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) Analyzer
The Sentinel ISE enables direct electrode measurement of ions in the sample using potentiometric sensors. Appropriate analytes include chloride, cyanide, fluoride, sodium, sulfide, nitrate, ammonia, and others. The single known addition (SKA) technique compensates for electrode drift on every analysis. The Sentinel ISE analyzer is fitted as standard with an RTD-100 temperature sensor, which permits automatic temperature compensation of the analysis. Direct method is used for high-concentration analysis. Automatic calibration is user-selectable and configurable with calibration repeat and alarm limits. The calibration is performed using the SKA method on a calibration standard.
