Hach Company has introduced its 5500sc silica analyzer. The 5500sc has a unique pressurized reagent-delivery system with an onboard air compressor that helps eliminate frequent maintenance associated with the use of traditional pump systems. The 5500sc can operate continuously for up to 90 days on only 2 L of reagents, helping facilities reduce user interaction with longer replacement intervals. Color-coded caps allow for a simplified reagent-change process, eliminating spills on the instrument, floor, or operator clothing, while redesigned flat-bottomed bottles improve stability. Unplanned downtime is reduced by predictive diagnostic tools using Hach’s Prognosys technology, alerting operators before there is an issue and walking them through the steps to correct it. A built-in help function allows operators to interpret all warnings, errors, and reminders quickly. Frequent bulb replacement is eliminated with a long-lasting light-emitting diode illumination source, and visibility is enhanced on the 5.7-in. liquid-crystal color display.
