Why can’t I get a stable turbidity measurement?
Outline several factors that may cause unstable turbidity measurement
Unstable turbidity measurements can be caused by several factors including:
  • sample settling
  • a dirty or scratched measuring cell
  • dust and dirt in the instrument optics 

Variability caused by settling is inherent to the technique.  An instrument with an averaging function can help to mitigate this issue.  A clean cell and instrument are necessary for quality turbidity measurements.  Regular inspection and cleaning of the cell and optics is highly recommended.
