NitriTox

Reliable Toximeter for Monitoring Wastewater Treatment Plants

Water Quality Matters Across All Industrial Applications

Our LAR™ NitriTox™ toximeter analyzer continually monitors wastewater treatment plants for pollutants. Potential toxins in water are determined through the reaction of highly sensitive bacteria. The measurements follow at intervals of less than 5 minutes. Thus, allowing enough time to introduce countermeasures after the occurrence of pollution. The NitriTox offers three warning levels, which can be individually set.

A failure within the nitrification not only leads to a breakdown of treatment processes but can cause an increased discharge of ammonia into rivers and lakes causing fish to die. The fast and reliable monitoring of incoming loads for toxicity warns of the danger in time, helping to protect the biological treatment processes. Additional pollution of public water and high discharge fees are prevented.  Some test methods that are available on the market can detect toxicity. They do not, however, identify exactly which toxins are present. By using fish, daphnia, molluscs, algae or luminous bacteria, they test whether a water sample has a toxic effect on the organisms.

NitriTox contains a bacteria culture (nitrifiers), which constantly and independently produces biomass. This means that there is enough bacteria at all times for each new measurement. As every water sample is tested with a fresh number of bacteria, the risk of the fermenter being contaminated is removed. The bacteria are extremely sensitive to a multitude of toxins. Through their reaction to the harmful substances in the water sample, toxicity can be reliably determined. For example, with phenols a reaction already starts at a concentration of less than 0.10 mg/litre.

We are the TOC Leadersin high-temperature TOC, COD, BOD and Toxicity water analysis for maximum reliability, high-performance and fast response.

      A BIG ADVANTAGE

      The NitriTox toximeter contains a bacteria culture which constantly and independently produces Biomass. This means that there is always enough bacteria for each new measurement. Furthermore, the risk of the fermenter being contaminated is removed because every water sample is tested with a fresh number of bacteria.

      ROBUST TOXICITY ANALYZER

      The bacteria are extremely sensitive to a multitude of toxins. Through their reaction to the harmful substances in the water sample, toxicity can be reliably determined. For example, a reaction already starts at a cyanide concentration of less than 0.10 mg/litre.

      NO FURTHER PURCHASES NECESSARY

      Firstly, it is not necessary to purchase or externally cultivate test organisms, such as fish or daphnia. Secondly, the toxicity analyzer is extremely low in maintenance because the bacteria mass constantly proliferates on its own.
