Ideal for turbidity or haze detection at pipeline terminals, refineries, airports, and more, the KAM THA Turbidity Haze Analyzer alerts operators to the presence of water or particulate contamination in all refined fuels and helps them to determine the source of contamination. The THA is based on the KAM CHA’s proven turbidity detection technology, already in operation throughout the United States, Asia and Europe.
Real-time turbidity / haze data can be used for ongoing quality control in all refined fuels including diesel, jet fuel, and gasoline. This data provides pipeline operators with the intelligence required to monitor fuels at both receiving and delivery terminals reject non-comforming batches and assists multiple parties in determining the location and/or responsibility of water contamination. In addition, the THA provides refineries quality control data prior to distribution and allows refiners to monitor and optimize the performance of filters, coalescers and separators.
Like all KAM instruments, the THA is easily installed either by inserting directly into the pipe, or in an analyzer loop. It can be installed without having to ever drain the pipe and output is a basic 4-20 mA. With no moving parts and long-lasting LED’s, the THA is designed for minimal power usage, minimal maintenance and long life.
