TOC Monitoring in Water Treatment

by:BOQU     2023-04-10
Total organic carbon (TOC) is determined by a special instrument - total organic carbon analyzer (hereinafter referred to as TOC analyzer). TOC analyzer is to oxidize total organic carbon in aqueous solution to carbon dioxide and measure its content. The carbon content correspondence between carbon dioxide and total organic carbon is used to quantitatively measure total organic carbon in aqueous solution. According to different working principles, the instrument can be divided into combustion oxidation-non-dispersive infrared absorption method, conductivity method, gas chromatography and so on. Among them, the combustion oxidation-non-dispersive infrared absorption method only needs one-time transformation, the process is simple, the reproducibility is good, and the sensitivity is high. Therefore, this TOC analyzer is widely used at home and abroad. The TOC analyzer is mainly composed of the following parts: sample inlet, inorganic carbon reactor, organic carbon oxidation reaction (or total carbon oxidation reactor), gas-liquid separator, non-spectral infrared CO2 analyzer, and data processing part. The content of organic matter in water is expressed by the amount of carbon, the main element in organic matter, and is called total organic carbon. The determination of TOC is similar to the determination of TOD. At a high temperature of 950°C, the organic matter in the water sample is gasified and burned to generate CO2, and the amount of CO2 generated is measured by an infrared analyzer, and the total organic carbon content can be known. Monitoring of TOC in water Our life is inseparable from water. If a considerable amount of organic pollutants exist in water, it will directly affect the quality of the water body and cause harm to our life and production. Therefore, the monitoring of water and wastewater has become more and more popular. attention. Among them, the detection of total organic carbon (TOC) content in water has attracted increasing attention. It is a comprehensive index that expresses the total amount of organic matter in water by carbon content. The determination of TOC generally adopts the combustion method, which can completely oxidize the organic matter in the water sample, and can be used to directly represent the total amount of organic matter. Therefore, it is used as an important reference index to evaluate the degree of organic pollution in water bodies.
