Sensicore Adds Seven New Tests to WaterPOINT 870

WaterPOINT 870 Optical now capable of key tests for industrial boiler/cooler applications and commercial water treatment applications

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 2 - Sensicore, a developer of smart sensor systems for measuring and monitoring water quality, has added important new testing capabilities to its WaterPOINT 870 Optical handheld water analysis system. As a result of these additions, WaterPOINT users will now be able to test for manganese, sulfide, zinc, molybdate, bromine, silica, and chloride. The tests further broaden the versatility of the WaterPOINT 870, which now offers 35 different tests in a single handheld device. In addition, the new tests increase the number and type of potential users of the WaterPOINT 870, by adding tests that are essential for certain specific applications, such as industrial or commercial water treatment.

Other new tests cover a wide range of applications. For instance, manganese is a valuable test for drinking water as well as commercial/industrial applications, such as well water and cooling towers. Sulfide testing is important for raw water treatment and commercial potable water, while chloride and molybdate tests are useful in cooling towers and boilers.

As with all tests using the WaterPOINT 870, the results can be collected, stored and printed in the field or downloaded onto a PC, making testing fast, efficient and accurate, with minimal training required.

"The WaterPOINT 870's new test capabilities enable industrial and commercial water treatment facilities to check water parameters faster, identify problems more quickly and test more thoroughly for before and after measurements," said Malcolm Kahn, president and CEO of Sensicore. "Sensicore is dedicated to providing a user-friendly system that enables our customers to work more efficiently."

Continuous Improvement to Meet Customer Needs

Sensicore works closely with its customers to deliver regular enhancements and usability improvements to the WaterPOINT 870. The most recent upgrades reduced calibration time and complexity, while offering greatly improved overall accuracy. Previous enhancements added the capability for EPA-approved free and total chlorine and turbidity plus colorimetric tests for nitrate, nitrite, fluoride, phosphate, iron and copper.

About the WaterPOINT 870

The WaterPOINT 870 is the only handheld water testing system that delivers more than 30 key water measurements and provides a single system for all key field testing needs. The maintenance-free system is menu-driven and designed to deliver field testing and reproducible results in an easy-to-use handheld device. The colorimetric module uses pre-packaged ampoule technology that is easy-to-use, highly accurate and stable, and doesn't require mixing of reagents. The WaterPOINT 870 electronically records and stores up to 250 water profiles. Test results can be downloaded wirelessly or through a USB or RS232 interface onto lab computers, eliminating transcription errors that are commonplace with the use of other chemical test kits and individual handheld devices.
