Complete solutions for ultrapure water analysis

Whether you are designing a new water system or retrofitting an existing system with on-line analyzers, HACH products provide you with the information necessary for the highest quality assurance.

We bring together the most trusted names in the industry to offer complete analysis for purified water (PW), water for injection (WFI), pure steam and high purity water (HPW) in the analysis of total organics, dissolved gases and trace particles.

HACH - ANATEL total organic carbon (TOC) and conductivity systems were the first ever designed for on-line use and have been specifically created to help you meet the requirements of USP <645> and USP <643>. As required by USP 23-30, all ANATEL analyzers assure complete oxidation of the organics with the unique "dynamic end-point detection" algorithm.

Trusted to provide you the highest level of accuracy, HACH - POLYMETRON conductivity analyzers ensure you meet industry standards for ultrapure water systems. The POLYMETRON 9126 Purecal is an easy-to-use portable calibration system used as a certified reference for validation in on-line ultrapure water conductivity measuring systems and provides the ultimate assurance you meet USP, EP and JP standards.

For water systems that use ozone for sanitization, HACH - ORBISPHERE dissolved gas analyzers are ideal for integration into your pharmaceutical water system. ORBISPHERE controllers may be used to analyze a single channel or multiple channels so that you can monitor the feed tank, post-destruction and return lines using a single point of control.

Finally, for the most critical applications including water for injection (WFI), HACH - HIAC particle counters have long been considered the industry standard for performance to meet USP, EP, JP and KP compendia tests.
