ORP Millivolts – The Sensor for Measurement of Disinfection – Bert Topping, author – Aquarius Technical Bulletin, No. 18, March 2002
What ORP is and when and how to use it instead of free chlorine. Author: Heather Rekalske Though the measurement of free chlorine concentration is often indicated for the disinfection of water and disinfectant byproduct control, there is a better way. Because free chlorine works through oxidation, ORP instrumentation can be used to monitor and … Read More

Application Bulletin WHAT IS ORP? Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity … Read More
Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) for Water Disinfection Monitoring, Control, and Documentation – ANR Publication 8149, 2004 – Trevor V. Suslow, UC Davis, Department of Vegetable Crops Extension Research Specialist
By Mike Ross Oxidation reduction potential (ORP), also known as redox, is the measurement of a solution’s oxidizing and reducing activity. The ORP process can be likened to stock-market activity: whenever one material is oxidized, another material is reduced (for someone to purchase a share, another person must sell that share). Fire is an example … Read More
