Deliver reliable results while reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

Hach Company is introducing an important new product for the Power Industry, the Hach 5500sc Silica Analyzer. This analyzer is specifically designed and engineered to improve on the highly reliable Series 5000 Silica Analyzer.

The 5500sc greatly reduces maintenance and user interaction due to the collection of improvements to the industry’s only Silica Analyzer with a pressurized reagent delivery system.

The Hach 5500sc has a unique pressurized reagent delivery system that helps eliminate the frequent maintenance associated with other analyzers that use traditional pump systems.

“Only Hach’s 5500sc Silica Analyzer uses a pressurized system to deliver the needed reagents to the analyzer, so operators don’t have to worry about their analyzer pumps going out on them,” said Tom Bolling, Global Business Unit Director of Hach.

Bolling continued, “We have also improved the reagents’ connection to the analyzer, reducing the typical mess and time that other analyzers have when reagent replacement is needed.”

The Hach 5500sc can operate continuously for up to 90 days on only two liters of the needed reagents, which helps facilities reduce user interaction with longer replacement intervals.

New, simple reagent change process features color coded caps that allow changeover with a simple twist of the cap - eliminating spills on the instrument, floor or operator clothing.

Predictive diagnostic tools help reduce unplanned downtime due to Hach’s proprietary Prognosys® technology, alerting operators before there is an issue and walking through the steps to correct it.

Hach’s 5500sc Silica Analyzer saves users critical time and effort by helping users deliver reliable results while reducing their maintenance costs and downtime.
