Dissolved Oxygen Sensors

873 Analyser for Dissolved Oxygen

The 873DO is a line-powered, dual sensor input dissolved oxygen analyzer.

The 873DO analyzer is used with an 871DO sensor for parts-per-million measurements of dissolved oxygen in aeration basins, industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants, and aquaculture applications.

Each 873DO analyzer provides two analog output signals (4-20 mA, 0-10 V, 0-20 mA) and two alarm relays.

When used with the 871DO sensor, the 873DO offers several sensor diagnostic features. The analyzer periodically monitors the sensor for membrane fouling, membrane breakage, and loss of internal filling solution.

Calibration of the 873DO is quick and simple, achieved by allowing the sensor to stabilize in ambient air.

A choice of plastic, panel-mount or metal, field-mount enclosure is available. Each enclosure is ? DIN. The metal enclosure is rated NEMA 4X, while the plastic enclosure is NEMA 12 from the front and NEMA 1 from the rear.

871DO Dissolved oxygen sensor

The 871DO is a rugged dissolved oxygen sensor used for parts-per-million level measurements in industrial and municipal installations. Common applications include aeration basins, wastewater treatment plants, and aquaculture. The 871DO sensor is housed in a thermoplastic body comprising PVDF and Noryl sections. It is a rebuildable style sensor with a tough stainless steel reinforced composite membrane bonded to an easily replaceable membrane cap. Membrane caps and replacement electrolyte are the only spare parts, and with regular maintenance the probe can last several years, even in the most difficult applications. Installation of the 871DO dissolved oxygen sensor is accomplished through the
use of built-in 1 inch NPT threads on the sensor body and the selection of an appropriate mounting adaptor. Most waste treatment applications are immersion or submersion style, so typically a standpipe is utilized. Foxboro offers handrail and ball float mounting assemblies to facilitate installation in treatment ponds and aeration basins. In applications where sulphur containing gases are dissolved in the liquid stream, the 871DO resists poisoning of the reference electrode through the use of an isolated reference design. This design has proved robust in many industries, including pulp and paper.
