How do I measure and calibrate at low level turbidity?

Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of water and is used as a key water quality indicator. This can then be used to quantify the amount of particles disrupting light passing through a liquid. For example, muddy water has a lot of small soil particles. This disrupts light going through it and makes it very cloudy and turbid. However spring water tends not to have many particles in and so is...

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 ...
