Sodium Analyzer for Pure Water and Steam Monitoring
Sodium analyzers are on-line instruments designed for continuous monitoring of sodium levels in pure and ultrapure waters and power cycle chemistry. METTLER TOLEDO's on-line sodium meter offers measurement at sub-ppb levels to provide immediate detection and diversion of sodium contamination before it reaches critical areas. With self-calibration capabilities and a fully protective design, this online Na analyzer ensures safe, reliable and continuous operation with minimal supervision.
On-line Detection of Trace Sodium Contamination
Sodium analyzers from METTLER TOLEDO monitor at sub-ppb levels so that sodium contamination in the water cycle, or breakthrough from a polisher cation resin, is immediately detected and dealt with.
Uncompromised Accuracy with Unattended Calibration
Eliminate the need for operator intervention by configuring your on-line sodium meter for periodic self-calibration to guarantee long-term measurement accuracy.
Sodium Analyzer Designed for Easy Maintenance
With six month preventative maintenance intervals, METTLER TOLEDO's on-line Na analyzer requires less downtime for maintenance and reduces operator time commitment.
Reliability Through Advanced Safety Features
METTLER TOLEDO's sodium analyzer uses a full-enclosure to protect components, tubing and the reagent bottle. This prevents interference to the Na analyzer and ensures safe, reliable operation.
Reduce Costs with Minimal Reagent Use
METTLER TOLEDO sodium analyzers are designed for low reagent consumption, saving costs and reducing handling of the DIPA reagent, promoting safe functioning for users.
Early Detection Guaranteed
With monitoring capabilities at sub-ppb sodium concentration levels, the METTLER TOLEDO sodium meter can immediately detect and divert harmful traces of sodium before it reaches critical areas.

What is a sodium analyzer?
A sodium analyzer is an on-line measurement system to ensure that water is not contaminated with sodium, which can be corrosive and damaging in processes that require pure or ultrapure water. On-line sodium meters are often used in power plants for monitoring water cycle chemistry or in microelectronics manufacturing. Fully automatic, online sodium analyzers can monitor continuously at sub-ppb sodium levels.
I measure conductivity, why do I need a sodium analyzer?
A sodium analyzer should generally be used in conjunction with conductivity measurement. Because conductivity is non-specific, it cannot distinguish between contaminants and water treatment chemicals such as ammonia or phosphates. A sodium analyzer is more specific and more sensitive. It can detect when a cation exchanger needs to be regenerated, whereas conductivity cannot "see" the sodium until the levels are too high because of the high background conductivity of pure water. The sensitivity of a sodium analyzer is critical, because contaminants in steam become many orders of magnitude more concentrated when they accumulate in the first condensation droplets in turbines, where they are very corrosive.
How does a sodium analyzer work?
A METTLER TOLEDO sodium analyzer uses an ion-selective electrode designed to specifically measure sodium in water. The sample water is treated with a reagent to suppress interference from all other ions in the water, and the electrode measures the sodium concentration in the water as it flows by in a continuous stream. With fully automatic calibration, the sodium analyzer ensures the measurements are always accurate and reliable with less operator intervention.
How do you determine when your cation resin is exhausted?
By detecting the first breakthrough of sodium from the cation exchanger, a sodium analyzer allows scheduling of regeneration based on cation exhaustion rather than a pre-set schedule, saving time and money while maintaining water quality.
What is the frequency of maintenance for a sodium analyzer?
With the ability to perform a pH check, a METTLER TOLEDO sodium analyzer consumes very low amount of reagents, requiring fewer refills. The sodium analyzer's electrode is conditioned during every calibration to minimize electrode etching frequency.
