Measuring Principle of Suspended Solids:
With increasing concentration of suspended solids, particles will interfere with each other. With this increasing number, not every particle is reached by the light source or the reflected light is not detected by the receiving device – thus incorrect values are measured. So the 90 degree scattered light method used for the turbidity measurement can only be used for lower concentrations.
For this reason WTW uses two methods of measurement – depending on the concentration. For lower concentrations, a scattered light method is used, in case of higher concentrations, the backscatter method is the better choice.

g/l SiO2 / % SiO2 0.01 … 300 g/l SiO2
0.001 … 30% SiO2
g/l TS / % TSS 0.003 … 1000 g/l TSS
0.0003 … 100% TSS
