LaMotte 2020 Innovation

LaMotte has been a committed industry leader of water quality analysis equipment since 1919. They produce one of the broadest lines of portable test equipment available, focusing on specific needs by offering improved products with strong technical support. To maintain consistent quality, virtually all of their reagents, instruments, and test kits are designed and manufactured in-house. The Research and Development staff is constantly improving existing products and researching new methods and reagent packages.

The newly redesigned Model 2020 Portable Turbidity Meters are an example of this commitment and combines the most advanced microprocessor in the handheld market with a patent-pending optical chamber. The result is higher accuracy in the low range and a wider detection range. LaMotte's multi-detector optical configuration assures long-term stability and minimizes stray light and color interferences. Using a process of true signal averaging over a 5 second period determines all readings.

This unique process minimizes fluctuations attributed to large particles and results in rapid, easily repeatable measurements. The 2020 is ideally suited for both low-level drinking water applications and monitoring high turbidity ground water in the field. Other features include:  data logging, advanced calibration algorithms, tube positioning ring that limits vial variability, easy menu driven operation and a large easy to read LCD display.

LaMotte offers two versions of this instrument:  the 2020we for meeting USEPA method 180.1 specifications, and the 2020wi for meeting ISO 7027 specifications. Kits are supplied with 0, 1, and 10 NTU standards, sample bottle, four sample tubes, USB cable, USB wall plug and a sturdy waterproof case.
