liquid analysis for the WORLD’S toughest conditions

Intelligently designed
to perform in extreme applications.

Turtle Tough’s patented and advanced technology will change the way you experience
liquid analysis.

Gold Processing – pH

Telfer, Western Australia, 2005.

Due to the highly complex gold and copper ore mixing process, the presence of sulfides and fluorides produce dissolved gasses that wreaked havoc on sensors, rendering most pH sensors unusable. Utilising our sensors with a unique triple junction design, coupled with our acid/fluoride resistant glass, and sulfide resistant junction, we drastically reduced the dissolved gas attack, increased the resistance to high cyanidation and sulfides, while the overall tough construction of the sensor was able to withstand the fluctuating solids content at high velocity. For more than 10 years now our Turtle Tough sensors have been experiencing more than 8-10 times the life span of the previous sensor.

Turtle Tough Pty Ltd is an Australian company that designs and develops sensors for liquid analysis for the world’s toughest applications.

We are a world leader in the development of electrochemical sensors for hydrometallurgy applications.  We have dedicated years to perfecting measurement solutions in the refining and extraction of gold, copper, nickel, uranium and zinc.  We have also engineered time tested solutions for titanium dioxide production, ammonium nitrate, solvent extraction, and industrial waste water applications.

Through science and ingenuity, advances in materials and years of specialising in tough applications we have overcome many of the physical, chemical and human challenges that each application presents.

Whatever the application, Turtle Tough sensors provide superior reliability, lower maintenance, less drift, better accuracy and above all, the lowest cost of ownership.

Applications by Industry

Every artist, expert or professional knows that perfection does not happen by chance. It takes years of dedication, experience and experimentation, failures and success to perfect ones craft. Our application specific sensors are a result of this journey. Each of the following sensors has been the result of decades of trial and error to create a sensor that has outperformed all our competitors so that we can say this is honestly the best sensor you can use in this application.

Turtle Tough Total Cost of Ownership

Our customers choose Turtle Tough because we deliver on our promises: providing substantial cost savings through better sensor performance.  Not only do we save them money, but we simplify the human factors required to keep the process measurement systems running effectively.

Improved Measurement Accuracy and Process Control

Turtle Tough sensors’ are designed to provide accurate measurement for significantly longer than any other sensor.  Custom made to provide lower rates of expiration, slower accuracy degradation and reduced fouling our sensors are reported to provide massive savings to our customers from better accuracy and tighter process control.

Longest Life in Industry

For decades our sensors have been outlasting our competitors by many times over.

Turtle Tough sensors boast significantly extended replacement intervals, reducing the time and manpower required to replace and install sensors.

Maintenance Free

All Turtle Tough pH, ORP, Conductivity and Ion Selective measurement sensors have no serviceable components.  This means completely maintenance free operation – for the entire life of the sensor.

A truly superior sensor must be impervious to ingress. Turtle Tough sensors are solid state and totally sealed for life. Not only will they resist process contamination but they are completely maintenance free. There is no gel or electrolyte to be refilled, no reference to replace and no o-rings or seals to be compromised or replenished.

Intelligently Designed for Extreme Applications

Turtle Tough’s patented and advanced technology will revolutionise the way you experience liquid analysis. Our entire range of pH, ORP, Conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen and ISE sensors are designed to be physically and chemically superior providing long life and high performance in the world’s toughest environments.

Through decades of experience suppling sensors into the world’s toughest applications we have developed sensors that are optimised for high hydrofluoric acid, saturated sodium, high sulphide, organic solvents, high cyanidation, ultrapure water, high temperature and slurry/viscous applications.

Sensor Anatomy

Rather than a one size fits all approach, each sensor is optimised for its intended process use, with various salt mixtures and polymer formulations. Our proprietary pH glass and ORP elements provide unmatched performance in harsh environments.

By utilising solid-state conductive reference junction polymers we are able to achieve accurate measurement while resisting process contamination into the reference system. This ability to maintain high ionic conductivity while resisting aggressive gas intrusion

is what makes our sensors outlast virtually all competitors in difficult process control conditions.

Resilient plastic housings are chosen to provide you with the most cost effective solution to meet the process requirements for durability and chemical resistance. Additionally our plastics are available in a wide variety of physical configurations to meet immersion, insertion, valve retractable, twistlock and sanitary type installation requirements.

Lowest Cost of Ownership Guaranteed

We could go on and on about how technically advanced and superior our sensor technology is, however most of our customers are simply concerned with saving money, reducing maintenance or achieving better process control.

So, whether you need to measure pH, ORP, Conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen or any one of our 12 ion specific measurements, we guarantee we can reduce your annual spend. In most cases our customers can

save more than 50%. Call us to find out more about our Turtle Tough lowest cost of ownership guarantee.
