AMTAX SC + PHOSPHAX SC_ON-SITE ANALYSERSAt the right place in the process:AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc”On-site” means measuring Ammonium and Phosphate in the tank. The main advantage is that shortsample paths give quick, undistorted results. This is the idea behind the new digital analyser generationfrom HACH LANGE—AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc.The concept is a practical, logical extension of the proven AMTAX and PHOSPHAX series. It combinesall the advantages: the high precision of an analyser and the simplicity of a probe.The difference in the PHOSPHAX sc:a two-beam photometer with LEDsdetermines the PO 4 -P concentrationThe design of the analysis and reagentsystems is the same in the AMTAX scand PHOSPHAX sc, and provides permanentaccessibility and completetransparency: The AMTAX sc measuresthe NH 4 -N concentration with a gassensitiveelectrode (GSE)Combined advantages:analyser and probe in oneThe exact, accurate measurement of ananalyser, installed at the side of the tanklike a probe! These advantages arecombined in the SC analysers for thedetermination of NH 4 -N and PO 4 -P.AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc aredesigned to be installed at the measuringlocation. They carry out measurementsexactly at the right point in the process,and their high-precision analysis is unaffectedby external interferences.Moreover, they are simple to assembleand operate. With their SC technology,they are ready for use in the networkof the SC controller.Save investment costs: NH 4 andPO 4 analysers on siteThe AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc needno separate analysis location. Climatedependantwet-chemical analysis usedto require cost-intensive and time-consumingadditional construction measures.But HACH LANGE now protectsthe core of the proven AMTAX andPHOSPHAX series with a weatherproof,lockable housing. Moreover, theoperation of the electronic and analysissystems is safeguarded both passively(insulation) and actively (temperaturecontrol). The sample and the measuredvalue are therefore not influenced byexternal factors.

AMTAX SC + PHOSPHAX SC_SC NETWORKMeasurement of Ammonium andPhosphate on the SC platformThe SC platform is leading-edge technology from HACH LANGE with the universal controller concept forall probes and analysers. This future-safe technology has now been extended to cover Ammonium andPhosphate—two key parameters in water and wastewater analysis.AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc are the first members of a new analyser generation for process measurementtechnology. It offers all the advantages of SC technology, as the instruments are freely combinablewith all the sensors in the network or can be used as a stand alone solution. NH 4 and PO 4 measurementis therefore flexible in practice and cuts costs.Up to eight sensors on one SC controller per measuringlocation➔ Cuts costsPlug and play with SC controller➔ Simple to install and operate and thereforequickly ready for operationNH 4 -NNO 3SAC O 2pHProcess control through measurement of NH 4 and PO 4➔ Process optimisationSludgeChlorineOzonePO 4 -PFlexible in the SC system:AMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc canbe combined with all sensors viathe SC controllerNH 4 and PO 4 measurementSC compatibleAMTAX sc and PHOSPHAX sc speakthe language of the SC technology.This means that they can share aSC controller with up to eight sensors.The SC analysers profit from the convenienthandling of the SC controllerand the uniform user interface:an intuitively operated colour touchscreen,where measured values andtime course curves are displayed.Wide measuring range for allapplicationsThanks to their wide measuring range(0.05 to 1,000 mg/l NH 4 -N and0.05 to 50 mg/l PO 4 -P), the newanalysers are extremely versatile.They can also be used for exact determinationsat the limits of water andwastewater analysis.This means that, for example, NH 4 ,O 2 and PO 4 can be monitored inparallel in standard processes in theactivated sludge stage of municipaland industrial sewage treatment plants.The sensors operate either in a networkor as a stand alone solution.
On site—no detoursUp to two SC analysers can beoperated at one measuringlocationAt the right place in theprocess: simple, fast onsiteinstallation of theSC analysersThe sample travels onlyshort distances in frostprooftubing between samplingand analysisTodayPoint of samplingand analysisPastAnalysislocationPoint of samplingShort paths—best resultsOn-site tank-side installation of AMTAX scand PHOSPHAX sc eliminates detours!Sampling and analysis are brought closertogether and form an integrated systemwith contemporary technology. Longsample paths are a thing of the past.The advantages are obvious. There areno factors such as degradation processesin the sample line that could causechanges in the sample and distort themeasured values.

AMTAX SC + PHOSPHAX SC_TECHNICAL DATAAMTAX scWide measuring range andmaximum precisionThe AMTAX sc measures the Ammoniumconcentration with a gas-sensitiveelectrode (GSE). The Ammonium in thesample is first converted to gaseousAmmonia. Only the NH 3 gas passesthrough the gas-permeable membraneof the electrode and is detected. Thismethod guarantees a wide measuringrange and is less susceptible to crosssensitivitymethods that make use ofan ion-selective electrode (ISE).Just a few minutes arerequired to change the electrolyteand unscrewablemembrane cap of the GSEElectrodeUnscrewablemembrane capTechnical data: AMTAX scGas-sensitivemembrane for NH 3Measurement methodGSE (gas sensitive electrode) with unscrewable membrane capMeasuring range 0.05 – 20.0 mg/l NH 4 -N 1.0 –100 mg/l NH 4 -N 10 –1,000 mg/l NH 4 -NLower limit of detection 0.05 mg/l NH 4 -N 1.0 mg/l NH 4 -N 10 mg/l NH 4 -NAccuracy 3% +0.05 mg/l 3 % +1.0 mg/l 4.5 % +10 mg/lResponse time (T90)5 min. including sample preparationMeasurement interval5–120 min.Special featuresAutomatic cleaning and calibration, extensive self-diagnosis,optional 2-channel version for continuous sample preparationInstallation Wall mountable, rail mountable and mountable on a stand indoors or outdoors (IP 55)Dimensions(W x H x D) 540 x 720 x 390 mmPower supply230 V AC/50 Hz (optional 115 V AC, 50 – 60 Hz), connection on SC 1000 ControllerWeight31 kg including reagentsAmbient temperature -20 °C to +45 °CSample temperature +4 °C to +40 °CSample preparationFilter probe (see below) and continuous sample preparation with FILTRAX, ultrafiltration, etc.Operation/OutputsThrough SC controller; outputs: mA, relay, busTechnical data: Filter probe for AMTAX sc or PHOSPHAX scFunctional principleIn-situ membrane filtration; filter modules are exchangeableSpecial featuresContinuous self-cleaning with air bubblesMaintenance timeTypically about 0.5 h/monthInstallation Mount in the tank or channel (IP 68)Dimensions(W x H x D) 315 x 250 x 120 mmWeightApprox. 8 kgSubject to change without notice
PHOSPHAX scThe low-wear two-beamphotometer with LEDsyields very exact resultsMore than 50% less chemicalswith proven yellow methodThe PHOSPHAX sc determines thePhosphate content by the vanadomolybdateyellow method. A low-maintenancetwo-beam photometer with LEDsmeasures the PO 4 -specific yellow colour.Before each measurement, it automaticallydetermines the intrinsic colour ofthe wastewater. This value is taken intoaccount in each determination. Distortedmeasurement results are thereforeexcluded.
