Thermo Scientific Orion RDO Optical Dissolved Oxygen Probes
RDO technology meets the requirements of ASTM D888-05 Method C Measuring dissolved oxygen with a luminescence-based sensor.
Optical dissolved oxygen is a new technology with many advantages that is rapidly gaining acceptance.
The Thermo Scientific Orion RDO® probe provides reliable measurements, no warm up time, no stirring, no maintenance (membranes or solution), no thermal shock and less interferences. The sensor cap requires easy annual replacement. The optical sensor cap is durable, able to withstand harsh environments without degradation or effect on performance. The cap has minimal hydration effects and is not prone to photo bleaching. Calibration
information is stored in the sensor cap enhancing the ease of use.
All Thermo Scientific RDO probes come with a stainless steel guard and calibration sleeve and are intended for field use.
Optical Probe/Luminescense-based Dissolved Oxygen (LDO) – Newest technology that monitors time to quench an excited lumiphore, which is inversely proportional to the concentration of oxygen.
