Description

As EPA standards for water quality have tightened in recent years, the need to more accurately assess filter performance and improve the overall treatment process has led to increased demand for the high sensitivity provided by particle counters. One particle counter can give you more data than a dozen turbidimeters-if you know how to sort through the complexity and confusion.

Reviews

"…much needed and long overdue…I have literally handled hundreds of customer calls which ranged through a wide gamut of difficulties and applications challenges. A great majority of these calls could have been avoided had the end user read just the first section of Mr. Broadwell's book…its appeal will span the gamut between the researcher and designing engineer to the actual day to day operator."-John Hunt, Met One, Inc.
