LG Sonic launched its new phosphate (PO4) sensor during WEFTEC 2021 in Chicago. The product is the result of a partnership with Dublin City University.
The sensor measures PO4 at different depths, offering a vertical profile of phosphate concentration and allowing the end user to measure the seasonal phosphate release from sediments. It also features a winch that allows configuration of different depths. The system is equipped with a peristaltic pump and contains reagent and waste, eliminating chemical release into the water.
