The Mütek™ PCD-05 Particle Charge Detector measures colloidally dissolved substances in aqueous samples via charge titration. Charge levels significantly determine the efficiency of chemical additives whether these are applied in process operations, waste water treatment, surface technology, food and beverage, ceramics, colors, fillers and pigments, cosmetics and textiles.
Within the pulp and paper industry the Mütek PCD is already a standard tool for detecting anionic trash levels as well as for characterizing chemical additives.
The Mütek PCD-05 Smart can be operated via smarthphone, tablet or labtop due to an integrated WLAN access point and a LAN connecting port.
The PCD-05 detects the charge neutral point via a streaming potential measurement followed by a poly-electrolyte titration. Alternatively, an acid or base can be used as titrant to detect the isoelectric point.
- Highly accurate and reproducible measurements
- Reliable results even at high conductivities
- Easy to handle and robust
- Complementary Mütek devices to measure zeta potential, retention or drainage
