Global water and wastewater treatment pioneer develops next-generation approach to measurement and management of chlorine and other critical parameters

 De Nora, a leading supplier of electrodes and water treatment technologies, announces the launch of Capital Controls® MicroChem®3, a multi-parameter water analysis system offering both measurement and control of chlorine-based compounds and other critical elements in one versatile instrument that can be specifically tailored to individual applications. Since 1960, the Capital Controls® brand has developed products built on an intimate knowledge of relevant science, technology, and applications, combined with a first-hand understanding of customer needs. The latest in this line of innovation, the MicroChem3 combines the best features of De Nora's sector-leading product lines with new advancements for superior flexibility and ease. Features include a color touchscreen display, menu-driven software for seamless set-up and operation, and a USB interface for software updates and data log downloads.

"While the latest in science and technology are at the foundation of all of our products, it is the needs of our customers that truly drives product development at De Nora," said Luca Buonerba, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, De Nora.

We are very excited to share the impact of this product with our new and current customers."

The MicroChem3 analyzer and controller can be used in conjunction with De Nora's preferred range of wet ends to measure and control any combination of chlorine, chlorine dioxide, pH, ORP, conductivity, and 4-20mA e.g., flow. As part of De Nora's superior commitment to customer service, extensive post-sale support is available worldwide to address any technical questions, part customization, or product updates, and to provide training and assessment of individual water treatment system efficiency.
