Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

It's going to depend on what the particulate is. ppm is a measurement of how much of something is present, and has no direct relationship to totoal turbidity.

There is not a conversion factor that I am aware of that will convert your result from NTU to ppm od suspended solids in a sample. If a sample has a turbidity of greater than 1 NTU, then you could obtain the dry weight of the sample and then use this figure to calculate the amount of solids in the sample in ppm units. This is only for determining the amount of all particulate matter in the sample.
