ZESTRON Bath Analyzer for concentration measurement

In order to achieve good cleaning results consistently, the cleaner concentration in the cleaning bath should remain constant. The concentration can change through various process factors like carry-over or thinning. It is therefore advisable to check the concentration over time. A simple method for regular concentration checks is the ZESTRON Bath Analyzer.
