The HI3831T is a chemical test kit that uses the DPD method to measure total chlorine. The HI3831T is supplied complete with all of the reagents and equipment necessary to perform approximately 50 tests.
Pre-made reagents for ease of use
All reagents marked with expiration date and lot number for traceability
Color comparison cube for simple determination
The HI3831T is a colorimetric chemical test kit that determines the total chlorine concentration within a 0.0 to 2.5 mg/L (ppm) range. The HI3831T is supplied with all of the necessary reagents and equipment to perform the analysis. The test kit contains enough reagents for perform approximately 50 tests.
- Complete setup
- All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the sample beaker, color comparison cube, and reagent packets and dropper bottles.
- High resolution
- Readings from 0.0 to 2.5 mg/L are determined to 0.5 mg/L resolution.
- Replacement reagents available
- There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The HI3831T-050 can be ordered to replace the reagents supplied with the kit.
Significance of Use
The chlorination of water supplies and polluted waters is used mainly to destroy or deactivate disease-producing microorganisms. Chlorine also serves to improve the quality of drinking waters, as it reacts with ammonia, iron, manganese, sulfide, and some organic substances. Nevertheless, high amounts of chlorine will produce adverse effects like the formation of compounds which are potentially carcinogenic (e.g. chloroform) or harmful to aquatic life (e.g. chloramines). It remains essential to control the amount of added chlorine in order to fulfill the primary purpose of disinfecting while also minimizing any adverse effects.
