Electrical conductivity has been measured for more than 100 years and it is still an important and widely used analytical parameter today.

METTLER TOLEDO has produced a new guide for the process industries that explains the measurement theory, sensor technology and practice of measuring conductivity and resistivity with on-line sensors.
Conductivity measurement and control plays a critical role in many chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, power, microelectronics and food and beverage processes. Conductivity measurement has a broad range of uses including water purity analysis, monitoring of reverse osmosis and ion exchange performance, cleaning procedures, control of chemical processes, and for industrial wastewater analysis.
Electrical conductivity has been measured for more than 100 years and it is still an important and widely used analytical parameter today. The high reliability, sensitivity, fast response, and relatively low cost of the equipment make conductivity a valuable, easy-to-use tool for quality control. In some applications, conductivity's reciprocal measurement is made as resistivity.
METTLER TOLEDO's new guide provides a basic understanding of conductivity and resistivity measurement, important factors that influence the measurement and possible sources of error, as well as both theoretical and practical aspects for reliable calibration and measurement in various applications.
The guide is available to download from http://www.mt.com/conductivity-guide
