Electro-Chemical Devices’ cyanide analyser for industrial water treatment


Engineers responsible for cyanide-based processes and plants where it is in use will find the advanced S80-T80 Cyanide Analyser Monitoring System from Electro-Chemical Devices supports efficient treatment to ensure cyanide levels in wastewater effluent are compliant with local, state and federal regulations.

Cyanide (CN) in its multiple forms is toxic and is widely used by a variety of industries. For example, CN is used in the manufacture of nylon and plastics. Other uses include the case hardening of steel, metal plating, the separation of gold and silver from ores and the scrubbing of stack gases from blast furnaces.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), cyanide is toxic and the lethal oral doses of cyanide compounds generally range from 50 to 200 mg CN (0.7 to 2.9 mg/Kg). Short-term exposure to cyanide above the maximum contaminant level (MCL) can cause rapid breathing, tremors and other neurological effects.
