Total organic carbon (TOC) analysis is a well-recognised technical approach that presents valuable insight about water quality for process control and regulatory compliance. If properly configured and applied, TOC analyzers offer a unique capability to support a wide range of applications. Commercially available combustion-type and membrane-based TOC analyzers are expensive and require costly maintenance. Significant cost savings can be derived from a novel and simplified approach to oxidising organic carbon and detecting carbon dioxide. Based on a detailed literature review and industry recommendations, we decided to work on the development of a novel, low-cost TOC analyzer with UV oxidation and conductivity as parameters to measure organic content in water. The analyzer will be automatic and will continuously measure TOC in pure and high-purity water.
