Hach Launches SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer™ Platform
Product News Oct 10, 2014
Hach Company is introducing an important and innovative new technology for the Drinking Water Industry, the Hach SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer™ (PPA) platform. This analyzer is specifically designed and engineered to dramatically streamline water quality testing.
The PPA platform offers faster testing of multiple parameters, greatly reduced variability from test to test and operator to operator, and significantly less hassle than traditional methods of testing.
The Hach PPA platform is the only hand-held drinking water instrument that is able to test up to four colorimetric and two probe-based parameters simultaneously, eliminating the need to run multiple tests back to back, saving time and money. Designed for use in the drinking water distribution system and the treatment plant, the PPA platform enables operators to be confident in their results.
“The Hach SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer (PPA) platform performs the same tests with less than half the manual steps compared with traditional methods, while producing highly accurate and reliable results. By reducing the number of testing steps, the PPA platform also minimizes opportunities for errors, and saves time by testing up to six parameters all at the same time,” said Tom Siller, Global Product Manager at Hach. “We have also developed Chemkey® Reagents to accompany the PPA system. These Chemkey Reagents contain the same chemicals our customers know and trust, but are now delivered in a simple, self-contained package.”
The Hach SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer (PPA) platform is available on its own or as a fully operational, rugged kit including everything users need to get started testing, including the instrument, probes and Chemkey Reagents.
The simple use model of the PPA platform offers operators of all skill levels the flexibility to test for the parameters that are relevant to their process, including both colorimetric testing methods and probe-based measurements.
Hach’s SL1000 Portable Parallel Analyzer (PPA) platform dramatically streamlines water quality testing by offering faster testing, less variability and less hassle.
