Anti Fouling Solutions


Copper Sensor Guard

Available for the DS5 and DS5X sondes as well as the DS4a, copper sensor guards are identical to standard sensor guards, only constructed out of a copper alloy. Copper sensors guards inhibit the growth of matter that would normally adhere to the sensor guard and potentially interfere with measurements.

Instrument bio-fouling is a challenge consistently faced by water quality professionals in their effort to collect accurate data. Bio-fouling not only affects data, but also significantly increases instrument maintenance costs and time spent in the field.

Copper is accepted as an inhibitor of biological growth in aqueous environments because its ions are released from their solid form and are toxic to microorganisms.

Hach Hydromet offers several resources to support the integration of copper into your monitoring program.
