WATER ANALYSIS WITH “DROPS” TECHNOLOGY
Precise – Simple – Quick – Convenient – Reliable
TITRATION : THE IPT DROP COUNT METHOD
The following tests can be carried out by “DROP COUNT TITRATION” : Acidity, p- and m- Alkalinity, Alkalinity in boiler water, Carbon dioxide, Salts of strong acids, Calcium, Chlorides, Hardness, Hardness in boiler water, Hardness precipitation (for demonstrations), sulfite. (Chlorides can also be measured by a colorimetric method)
The titration with the IPT DROP COUNT METHOD is simple, precise and economical. A 5 ml sample is put into the test tube, the indicator added and the titration counting the drops unto the colour change is carried out. The number of drops correspond to the result.
VISUAL COLORIMETRIC TESTS WITH IPT LIQUID REAGENT METHODS
In the presence of diagnostic reagents the following substances develop a colour whose strength is proportional to the concentration : Ammonia, Chlorine, Chloride, Chromate, Residual hardness, Iron, Phosphate, Hydrazine, Manganese, Nitrate, Nitrite, pH and Silica. There are double kits for Chlorine and pH, suitable for swimming pools.
The approximate concentration can be estimated by simple comparison of the sample with a colored scale supplied with each kit.
INSTRUMENTAL COLORIMETRIC TESTING WITH THE IPT “DROPS” SYSTEM
In the presence of diagnostic reagents the following substances develop a colour whose strength is proportional to the concentration : Ammonia, Chlorine, Chloride, Chromate, Iron, Phosphate, Hydrazine, Nitrate, Nitrite, pH and Silica.
Their concentration can be found by furnishing the “DROPS” photometer with a blank followed by a coloured sample. The DROPS PHOTOMETER gives a direct reading of the Absorbance (Extinction) value. Multiplying this by the factor supplied with each kit allows one to find the concentration in ppm. The reagent quantity in each IPT DROPS kit is sufficient for a large number of tests.
The DROPS PHOTOMETER is a low-cost device with a precision of two digits. It can also be used with HYDROCHECK SPECTRATEST and MONOTEST kits instead of the HC 6000, which is a more sophisticated photometer with three-digit resolution.
ECONOMICAL TEST KITS
