Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) 

Online DOC measurement is carried out by using measuring UV absorbance, typically at 254nm, and relating the absorbance to a dissolved organic carbon value. DOC characterisation can be carried out by using multiple UV wavelengths, from this information about how hydrophobic/hydrophilic the organics are as well as their molecular weight can be determined.

DOC measurement is often used as part of a SUVA (Specific Ultraviolet Absorbance) measurement which again seeks to provide more information about the nature of the organic material in water.

The future of Coagulation Control in Water Treatment

Achieving reliable automatic coagulation control is something many water companies struggle to maintain in highly variable (flashy) catchment areas. These areas can be at one time or another; typically low in particulates with a moderate to high natural organic matter (NOM) content or vice versa.
