Hach 2100Q in the field

Responsible for monitoring turbidity on your construction site?  Geotech Environmental Equipment has the equipment you need to remain in compliance and avoid those nasty regulatory delays and fines.

  Hach 2100Q

New EPA Construction and Development point source regulations are expected by January 31, 2012.  This rule includes a numeric turbidity limit for certain larger construction sites.  At this point, the numeric limitation 280 NTU* is still in effect, however, it is believed that the EPA will revise the limit in the future. 

The new 2100Q makes it easier to monitor water cleanliness and clarity, to test product quality and consistency, and to meet turbidity regulations where grab samples are used.

This new turbidity measuring instrument from Hach delivers superior accuracy and ease-of-use. The Hach 2100Q Portable Turbidimeter offers advanced features such as on-screen assisted calibration and verification, simplified data transfer, and measurement innovation for rapidly settling samples.

  • Single-standard RapidCal™ calibration offers the simplest solution for low-level measurements.
  • Single-step verification and on-screen assisted calibration eliminates the need to reference complicated manuals.
  • Exclusive algorithm in the Rapidly Settling Turbidity™ mode provides accurate, repeatable measurements for rapidly settling, difficult-to-measure samples while eliminating the need for redundant measurements and estimating.
  • Optional USB module enables simple data transfer. All data is easily downloaded to any computer providing superior data integrity and availability.

The 2100Q can be also used to verify process turbidity measurements from the Hach 1720E process turbidimeter or to trouble-shoot processes where turbidity is a key parameter.

Geotech April Photo Competition Winner

Bull Bull

Bryan DuFosse (City of Boise – Public Works Dept.) took these pictures of Paul Faulkner using a Geopump 1 peristaltic pump while Intimidator the Longhorn bull watched closely.
"We had just finished sampling and filtering at one of several groundwater monitoring wells when one of the local “residents” got curious about what we were doing and came over to have a look. Fortunately the bull was docile and did not seem to mind our intrusion on his pasture."
