How can I measure Turbidity?

Turbidity measures the cloudiness/haziness of a fluid. It is a key test for water quality, turbidity is caused by particles of varying size scattering/absorbing the light and creating a cloudy appearance. The turbidity of a sample will increase with the amount of undissolved solids present. Turbidity Tubes and Secchi Disks The simplest and lowest cost way to measure the turbidity of a sample ...

Why is my turbidity reading higher/lower than expected?

For an accurate measurement of turbidity a sample vial is placed in an nephelometer meter called a turbidimeter or turbidity meter. The meter emits a known intensity of light through the sample cell and the scattered light is measured at 90 degrees to the light source to give a turbidity reading in units NTU (nephelometric turbidity units) or FTU (formazin turbidity units). There are a range...

Turbidity Standards - Quick Reference Guide

Turbidity is the cloudiness or haziness of a fluid caused by individual particles (suspended solids) that are generally invisible to the naked eye, similar to smoke in air. The measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality.
