Municipal and industrial facilities where high quality water analysis is of critical importance can now benefit from a new flexible monitoring solution designed to deliver enhanced productivity, maximum uptime, lower cost of ownership and optimized chemistry for reduced waste. Incorporating optical or electrode-based measurement technologies, the Thermo Scientific Orion 8000 Series Analyzer Platform integrates multiple analyzers, each one monitoring a single water parameter, while covering a wide range of concentrations for use across several applications, such as drinking, ultrapure, cooling, boiler and waste water analysis.
This means the platform can meet the high-quality water analysis needs of a broad array of industries, including power, municipal drinking water and wastewater, food and beverage, pulp and paper, refinery, and semiconductor. The platform is currently available as an ammonia analyzer using colorimetric technology. The Orion 8000 Series Analyzer Platform has been designed to support common electronics and parts across all of the integrated analyzers, simplifying inventory management of spare parts, consumables and accessories, and ensuring supply on-demand. Operation of the platform is powered via a modern, user-friendly interface enabled by a large 7-inch, high-resolution color touchscreen, which is easy-to-use with minimal training required.
As a result, significant resource savings and increased productivity are enabled. Furthermore, due to low reagent consumption and minimal chemical waste generation, the Orion 8000 Series Analyzer Platform drives considerable cost savings. Featuring built-in predictive diagnostics and preventive maintenance schedules, the platform ensures long-term, continuous operation of the analyzers with maximum uptime.
“In municipal and industrial facilities, ensuring that water is safe for its intended use is of paramount importance,” said Denzil Vaughn, vice president and general manager for water and laboratory products at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Designed with reliability and performance in mind, the new Orion Series 8000 Analyzer Platform enables accurate and repeatable measurements, while maximizing operational efficiencies and boosting productivity. Our customers can now experience the power of working on a robust, integrated solution, which delivers the required results easier than ever before.” Each analyzer working on the Orion 8000 Series Analyzer Platform is optimized through reagent formulation, a reliable sensor system, and an accurate fluid delivery and quantification system, all of which allow for superior performance. Additionally, for seamless integration into most data management systems, the platform powers the communication of data with analog outputs, Bluetooth, cloud connectivity, HART Protocol, Modbus TCP/IP, PROFIBUS, RS485 and wireless.
