The OZONE-IN-WATER SENSOR BMT 965 AQ is a UV photometer for direct measurement of the ozone content of ultra-pure water, or water with constant turbidity. A special version BMT 965 AQ/HF for up to 20% hydrofluoric acid is available. Materials in contact with the ozonated water are: PTFE, FFPM, PFA and quartz or sapphire.
The BMT 965 AQ is a SENSOR because it does not have a display. It is designed to directly be connected to a workstation via a 4 - 20 mA, or 0 - 10 V signal line.
An optional Remote Display BMT 965 RD is available. To operate with the Remote Display, the BMT 965 AQ has to be ordered with the option: interface for Remote Display.
Superior stability of the photometer is achieved by use of a true dual beam optical system with an extremely long-life mercury lamp. MTBF of the instrument, including the lamp, is in excess of 65,000 hours. Excluding the lamp, it is 120,000 hours.
An eight gigabyte non-volatile log memory is included, providing virtually unlimited storage capacity for concentration and error logs. If connected to a PC, the instrument acts as an external USB drive, from which concentration and error logs can be downloaded. Logs can also be copied and firmware can be upgraded without an external computer just by connecting a USB flash drive.
Complete control of all operating parameters is provided with the Windows software BMT 965 Link.

The OZONE - IN - WATER SENSOR BMT 965 AQ comes in a splash proof aluminum enclosure (IP 65, NEMA 4X) 260 x 160 x 91 mm (W x H x D) with sea water resistant coating (RAL 5009, azure), and weighs about 3 kg. Four mounting brackets are provided for installing the SENSOR where it is needed, e.g. underneath a work bench. All electric connectors are water proof.
When the fluid to be measured is at lower temperature than the ambient, flushing of the instrument with clean dry air (or nitrogen) is necessary to prevent condensation of water. Flow rate of the dry gas should be about 0.2 l/min.
If a throttle (flow resistance) is installed to control the flow rate through the OZONE-IN-WATER SENSOR, this throttle must be positioned behind the sensor (never in front of it!), because gas could bubble out after a pressure drop disturbing measurement.
The flow rate must not exceed the maximum of 0.3 l/min.
As long as the cuvette of the SENSOR remains clean, zeroing of the instrument is not necessary for weeks, or even for months. But for safety, zero reading should be checked on a regular basis. Additional BMT Products (for details, refer to the appropriate data sheets):
